Things are really not going very well for Chuck C. Johnson lately. After he was detained by Capitol Police, frisked and thrown out of a John Boehner fundraiser in March, I speculated that he was probably on a watch list now because of his creepy behavior.
Well, here’s more evidence that Chuck’s gotten himself on the “persona non grata” list: today he was unceremoniously tossed out of yet another political event, this time in Washington DC.
“Maybe it was my wit,” he remarked. “Typical RINO trying to do me in apparently.”
A friend invited Johnson to the off-the-record event at the Americans For Tax Reform headquarters in D.C. “This being America, I tend to go to things I am invited to,” Johnson wrote on Facebook. “I met Grover Norquist at CPAC where we talked about immigration and Japanese land policy.”
“Well, a woman named Candace (I think) comes up to me and asks me who I am, I identified myself, offered my hand, and said hello,” he continued on Facebook. “She kept saying I don’t know who you are. I kept telling her who I am. Despite having sat down and talking with a few friends, she asked me to get my stuff so I did. I said I had an invitation and put her in touch with my friend. She said I didn’t. I said I did and she said I didn’t and that she has to follow the rules.”
Asked if she was kicking him out, Candace replied, “I think so.”
It’s not the most locked down event in Washington. But as a source explained, “Some people are definitely persona non grata.”
The photo above shows Johnson outside the headquarters of Norquist’s organization, Americans for Tax Reform. The woman who kicked him out was apparently Candice N. Boyer, their director of outreach.
