Karl Rove Gave Secret Speech Outside Romney Donor Retreat

Source: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON -- Karl Rove was the featured speaker at a previously unreported luncheon held just outside the Mitt Romney campaign's recent retreat for high-dollar donors, according to three Republican fundraisers who attended the event.

Rove's luncheon speech did not appear on the retreat's official agenda because Romney's campaign didn't host it. Instead, the event was hosted by Solamere Capital, a private equity firm founded by Tagg Romney, the candidate's eldest son, and Spencer Zwick, the Romney campaign's chief fundraiser who is often described as Romney's "sixth son."

Rove's speech was delivered on June 22, the Friday of the retreat weekend, to about 200 wealthy guests, including quite a few money harvesters for the Romney campaign, according to GOP sources who attended but requested anonymity in order to speak freely.

In a half-hour talk followed by questions from the audience, Rove covered congressional races and the presidential contest, with some brief remarks about what the super PAC American Crossroads and an affiliated group are doing with tens of millions he helped raise to boost GOP fortunes in November, according to two GOP fundraisers who heard Rove speak.

4. Yes but the appearance of collusion between Crossroads and Romney Campaign is still there.

Romney and Rove are staying within the law only in a wink wink kind of way.

12. "Taggart."

A common enough surname, can't find that it's in Romney's family tree.

Meaning given as "son of (the) priest," which sort of fits Romney's background.

As for first names ... I've run into Jael, Deshayla, Nixon, Ealar, and a mess of others. There's a poor Southern tradition of having odd names for children, sort of "gotta make it novel and interesting or different sounding."

Once saw "Jane" written something like Jae'hn.

"Taggart"? In the top 300 oddball English-language American names, it's rather close to "Caleb".

10. His most loyal supporters, and fundraisers, are now speaking to the media, about the impropriety?

If he can't trust the rich, who can he trust?
