Trouble at the RPV

Finance chairman Walter Curt resigns…and kicks over the trash can on his way out the door:

“Unfortunately the problems of structure, power projection, consultant interference, interpersonal difficulties, years of internal malaise, luddite attitude, leadership, and unity of purpose stand in the way of any hope of success,” Curt wrote.

Describing the state GOP as “dysfunctional,” Curt credited Frederick with attempting to end the party’s reverses.

“Your leadership style obviously needs polish,” Curt said in his “Dear Jeff” letter. “But given the tremendous headwinds you are trying to move against it is amazing what you have accomplished.”

This is in direct contrast to the “happy party” depicted in the Weekly Standard. Which one is more accurate? I leave it to Tolstoy:

“Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
