In case you somehow missed it, yes, the man who fomented a deadly riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6 is running for president again. His two officials campaign filings with the Federal Elections Commission (here and here) list Bradley T. Crate of Red Curve Solutions as his treasurer - in fact, lists [email protected] as the campaign's official e-mail address.
Although the forms list a post office box in Alexandria, VA as the mailing address, Red Curve is headquartered in an office building on Conant Street, just off Rte. 128 in our very own Beverly. The forms list Red Curve's 617 phone number.
What's particularly interesting is that the company lists two men el Caudillo de Mar-a-Lago particularly loathes: Mitt Romney and Charlie Baker:
Red Curve Solutions ® was founded during the 2008 election cycle by Bradley T. Crate, the Deputy Chief Financial Officer of the Romney for President campaign. Mr. Crate recognized the need to apply a more structured approach to compliance and treasury management to campaigns. Using a full-service model and leveraging innovative technology, Red Curve Solutions ® solves the complex problems posed by the financial logistics of modern political campaigns.
In 2012, he moved up in the Romney campaign, serving as chief financial officer for the Romney-Ryan campaign, according to this profile, which says he has "a proven track record of building a business from the ground floor up and successfully instituting processes for a highly efficient organization" and a keen eye for cost savings.
Crate also worked to get Charlie Baker elected as governor.
