Neil (JCN Officer) & Ann Corkery control Wellspring, huge funders of JCN, hired CRC aka Creative Response Concepts to create publicity stunts to help Brett Kavanaugh.
“On Friday, hours after Whelan called his decision to name and post photographs of Kavanaugh’s high school classmate “an appalling and inexcusable mistake of judgment,” CRC helped organize a news conference featuring an array of women who dismissed Ford’s allegations.
Best known for its work with the Swift Boat Veterans in 2004, CRC bills itself as a full-service communications firm “specializing in media relations, social media and issues management,” according to its website. It has long been the go-to communications firm for conservative organizations in Washington and across the country. Its current clients include the Federalist Society and the Judicial Crisis Network, the chief outside groups working to help confirm Kavanaugh.
After unsuccessful attempts to persuade reporters to chase down a theory he put forward on Twitter — that the high school party described by Ford may have taken place at the home of a particular high school classmate of Kavanaugh’s, and that that classmate may have been the perpetrator of the alleged attack — Whelan worked with CRC’s Mueller to devise a strategy that would draw attention to his theory, according to two sources familiar with his plans. That involved teasing the idea that he would make a big reveal but remaining mysteriously tight-lipped about what he had uncovered.”
Republican spokesman for nomination of Brett Kavanaugh resigns after past harassment claims surface CNBC Kevin Breuninger. “29-year-old Garrett Ventry was fired in 2017 from his prior job for North Carolina House Majority Leader John Bell after just several months. According to the report, “parts of his resume were found to have been embellished, and because he faced an accusation of sexual harassment from a female employee” of the state general assembly’s staff. A spokeswoman for Senate Judiciary Committee GOP Chairman Chuck Grassley told NBC that while Ventry “strongly denies allegations of wrongdoing, he decided to resign to avoid causing any distraction from the work of the committee.” Ventry has also resigned from GOP firm CRC Public Relations, which became intertwined in the news surrounding Kavanaugh after Politico reported its connection to a theory pushed by a conservative activist that Ford may have mistaken Kavanaugh for one of his classmates.”
