CPAC Instills Vetting Process for Affiliates

The John Birch Society and the gay Republican group GOProud are history — as far as the Conservative Political Action Conference is concerned, according to the liberal website Slate.com.
Slate reported that a vetting process for CPAC sponsors and exhibitors, led by Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union, has begun and that a few groups have been ejected. CPAC has removed groups from the conference before, and removing GOProud is not a surprise, Slate.com says.

The John Birch Society and GOProud came onboard after President Barack Obama’s election. From 2008 to 2010, CPAC widened its members-only list to include the Birchers and GOProud, to bring as many conservatives as possible into the CPAC fold, Slate.com reports.

The pendulum has swung again — Obama looks beatable going into 2012, and the conservatives are reshuffling the deck, according to Slate.com.
“The flash of GOProud . . .  isn’t as necessary,” Slate.com reports.
