It appears that Sarvis’ single biggest contributor is a Democrat from Texas with deep pockets who gave over $90K to the Democrats and Obama during the last campaign cycle. What connection does a wealthy Texas businessman have with a neophyte pseudo Libertarian wannabe? Terry McCauliffe is the link that joins these two together.
Lets remember that Sarvis may be a real politician. He already talks out of both sides of his mouth. His web page has a number of Libertarian sounding paragraphs. Other positions are of dubious Libertarian timber. What came out in his interview is that Robert Sarvis is not in the Austrian Economic camp, and supports progressive programs like Obamacare as well as raising taxes. You cannot be a Libertarian without believing in small government, a free market and the right to go to hell in your own way.
In short, Robert Sarvis, when the curtain is pulled away is just another dyed in the wool progressive. Ron Paul has says you have to be nuts to vote for Sarvis. Beyond that Sarvis is a tool for the Democrats. Most pols show he pulls two Republican votes for each Democrat he captures. This is the reason why the Democrats are pouring money into his campaign. Considering the blatant dishonesty of McCauliffe during this campaign, his own outrageous behavior he described in his autobiography, is it any wonder he found a pawn in Sarvis.
