Dealergate: Mapping the Chrysler Closures
More Hope and Change…
** Earlier it was reported that the Obama Administration may have targeted GOP donors in deciding which Chrysler dealerships would have to close their doors.
** Last night it was discovered that a Big Dem Donor Group was allowed to keep all 6 Chrysler dealerships open…. And, their local competitors were eliminated by Obama’s task force.
** The closings also tend to be in “Red” Counties where Obama lost.
** Even Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla) lost his Chrysler dealership in Florida and found out from a colleague on the House floor.
Doug Ross says tonight that, “The odds that these Chrysler closings occurred without partisan bias are roughly equivalent to the odds that Jean Claude Van-Damme will grab a Best Supporting Actor Oscar next year for a remake of Terms of Endearment.”
Doug mapped the research by Joey Smith that shows how the Big Dem Donor Group RLJ-McLarty-Landers faired after the announced closings.
All six of RLJ-McLarty-Landers were saved and their local competitors were conveniently closed.
Here is the map of their Lee’s Summit, Missouri location:
1. Lee’s Summit Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep (Lee’s Summit, MO)
2. Crawford’s Raytown (Jeep) (Raytown, MO)
3. Mitch Crawford’s Holiday Motors (Chrysler) (Raytown, MO)
4. Raytown Dodge Company (Dodge) (Raytown, MO)
5. Milner-O’Quinn Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep (all 4 brands) (Harrisonville, MO)
#1 is located in Lee’s Summit and is owned by RLJ-McCarty-Landers.
#2, #3, and #4 are located 9 miles northwest in Raytown, MO and is owned by Michael Crawford.
#5 is located 19 miles south in Harrisonville, MO and is owned by Charles O’Quinn.
The Lee’s Summit RLJ dealership will remain open.
Doug Ross has more maps and calculated that the odds that all of the RLJ dealerships would survive the cuts. Ross says this was roughly as likely as landing two frisbees, simultaneously, on each of Barack Obama’s teleprompters during one of his televised speeches.
