The Republican National Committee, at the urging of President Bush and his political advisers, is on the threshold of a decision that could only be interpreted by pro-life Americans as insulting and contemptuous of all that we, and our Party’s platform stand for.

A Washington Times column by Ralph Hallow on Tuesday, January 16, reported that President Bush wants the Committee, meeting this weekend in Austin, Texas, to install Lewis Eisenberg as RNC Finance Chairman.

Eisenberg is a liberal, pro-abortion activist millionaire investment banker who raised millions of dollars for George W. Bush’s presidential campaign. He is a close associate of former Governor of New Jersey, Christine Todd Whitman, who is currently chairman of the Environmental Protection Agency in the Bush administration and whose pro-abortion views are well known. Eisenberg, together with Whitman, organized the Republican Leadership Council and the Committee for Responsible Government, to raise large sums of money for pro-abortion candidates in Republican primaries. They are committed to removing the pro-life plank from the Republican National Platform.

Lew Eisenberg appears to be even-handed in his support of pro-abortion politicians. While he has supported Republicans in the recent past, he has also contributed to liberal Democrats Walter Mondale, Dick Gephardt, Tim Wirth, Chris Dodd, Bruce Babbitt and Joe Biden, among others.

In the early 90's Lew Eisenberg lost his job at Goldman Sachs due to a sexual harassment lawsuit brought against him by a young woman named Kathy Abraham with whom he had a 7-year affair. Eisenberg is married with 3 children. Ms. Abraham accused Eisenberg of making sexual demands of her in order to keep her job. "Eisenberg even suggested that she have sex with other Goldman Sachs partners," according to The Times.

Now, on the eve of the 29th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, as pro-life Americans sadly commemorate the 48 million or more babies who have been killed through abortion, will the Republican Party deliver to us the incredible insult of installing this man in a high Party position?

One wonders what the Bush leadership can be thinking. After all, if they want a great fund raiser who is a pro-abortion liberal with a sleazy reputation concerning women, Bill Clinton is available! Surely there are numerous Republicans who are capable of raising money for the Party.

According to the Times story, Ralph Reed, former executive director of Christian Coalition and now a professional political consultant and chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, plans to nominate Eisenberg for for the position, "a move intended to make his election more acceptable to the right." To the contrary, a move like this will only serve to alienate more pro-life conservatives from the Party and swell the ranks of those who did not vote in the 2000 election.

We have learned that many members of the Republican National Committee were not aware that they would be asked to vote for Lew Eisenberg this weekend. Indeed, many have never heard of him and know nothing about him. Those who have learned of this scheme deeply resent the tactics being used. People are supposed to run for Party positions and be duly elected. Not anointed from above and rubber-stamped.

YOU can do something about this!

Everyone who receives this briefing is represented on the Republican National Committee by three people; your National Committeewoman, National Committeeman, and State Party Chairman.

Most of them will be in Austin, Texas at the RNC mid-winter meeting. They are staying at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The phone number is: 512/477-1234.

A list of RNC members is printed below. Please call the Hyatt Regency and leave the following message for your three representatives:

"Please oppose efforts to make Lew Eisenberg Finance Chairman of the RNC. Please elect someone to the position who supports the ideals and principles of the Party, whose values reflect those of Republicans in general, and whose personal reputation is not an embarrassment."

If they want more information, offer to fax them this report or refer them to the January 16th Washington Times article by Ralph Hallow.

This is a matter of extreme urgency. Please act now. Thank you!!
