Lennox Surfaces, Was Dispatched To Guam For Cruz Presidential Campaign

After Dennis Lennox was fired from his position at the Mount Pleasant Morning Sun under circumstances that are-at best, uncertain- the controversial operative known for strong ties with Saul Anuzis has Guam.

Lennox was released from the paper a few weeks ago, with everything he's ever written purged from their website.

According to the Guardian:

"It’s not unusual for presidential campaigns to deploy staffers across the country in the year before voting begins. But Republican candidate Ted Cruz has gone one step further and sent an operative across the Pacific Ocean.

The Cruz campaign has dispatched political consultant Dennis Lennox to Guam to organize in advance of that island’s GOP caucuses. The decision to send Lennox, a former county drain commissioner in his native Michigan, to Guam represents the most zealous outreach of any presidential campaign to the US island territory located nearly 8,000 miles from Washington DC...

While Guam only has nine delegates out of the total of 2,470 who will attend the Republican convention in Cleveland in July 2016, it is far more significant than its size would indicate under RNC rules. Under rules passed in 2012, any Republican candidate needs the support of a majority of delegates from eight states to have his name placed into nomination. Under RNC rules, a territory is considered a state and winning Guam makes it that much easier for a candidate to tally the eight states necessary if there ends up being a floor fight in Cleveland next year. A floor fight is where the identity of the nominee has not been determined prior to the convention and the primary ends with an actual vote with consequences on the convention floor."

  1. Sounds like he left the paper because of Cruz.

  2. That doesn't account for the complete purge weeks ago of all his Morning Sun columns though...

  3. They probably deleted his account (guessing they use WordPress to run their website or whatever) and when that happened the columns went missing but claiming he was fired or did something wrong is pretty far-fetched especially when he was writing for Detroit News after he left them and I think the same company owns both newspapers. I'm guessing he was doing side work for Ted Cruz and the Morning Sun didn't like this. Or they have money problems. Lots of papers bankrupt and laying off staff to cut costs. Just saying there's probably a lot here that we don't know and you jumping on isn't good. Plus, so what, he's working? It's a job? Do you want him to collect welfare?

  4. "I'm guessing he was doing side work for Ted Cruz and the Morning Sun didn't like this." There ya go, bingo. His column attacking Rand regarding a closed primary while working for Cruz and the Sun at the same time was not the best move... Was he fired/forced to leave? Yes.Was it for plagiarism or other crazy things i have heard? No... I can't talk to Dennis because he has blocked me for no reason from all social media platforms long ago so I can't say much more with certitude.
