Who is behind this group is still a mystery — The name of the group is suggestive of a riddle — The real agenda of this group is an enigma
First mention of this group might have been on this blog back in May of this year
Several hours ago a facebook page went up with the provocative title “Republicans For Kemmerer” (See “Republicans For Kemmerer” [//www.facebook.com/pages/Republicans-For-Kemmerer/377077922439222]). Their first message was a simple one “We are registered Republicans who support James Kemmerer's campaign to unseat State Senator Martin Golden in November. Join us!” — Very simple, but it stayed on message and was repeated three times on the social media site that also contained headshots of the Democratic nominee for state senator and contained a link to Mr. Kemmerer’s own site: [ https://jameskemmerer.com/ ].
At this moment I have no idea if this is a legitimate and open “Republican” group that is opposed to State Senator Golden and supports the Democratic Candidate Jamie Kemmerer, as opposed to something that is ulterior in its ways and means and nature. To that extent it is a mystery. At this moment, this group appears to be something that is completely new and unique, but to the extent that they say they are registered Republicans seeking to unseat the only incumbent Republican completely elected in Brooklyn, they are a bit of a riddle. What motivates these particular registered Republicans is certainly an enigma.
Group possibly announced itself right here on this blog within days of Jamie Kemmerer’s announcement of his candidacy
A quick computer search has turned this up. It is very possible that the people behind this new group announced themselves, their possible affiliations and loyalties, and their intentions in two comments, the first made on May 15, 2014 and the second on May 20,2014 — both on a thread to an early post on this blog about the prospective candidacy of Democrat Jamie Kemmerer (See comments: “Anonymous said... Republicans for Kemmerer!!!!!!!! I hear that this group is growing very fast......... May 15, 2014 at 11:54 AM ” and “Anonymous said... I hear Golden is having some trouble - I am sure his feud with Eaton lost him a lot of support, as the communities he serves are starting to see his true colors. I am sure, like someone said above, that he will use all of his funds from his current Senate position to buy his way back into the seat...it is not right. I hope Kemmerer has enough support to pull though. Republicans for Kemmerer!
