Who is Mark Meadows? He grew up in Florida, and like all Floridians, he found his way to the mountains of western North Carolina where he settled in Highlands in 1981 and opened Aunt D's sandwich shop.
He's an acid-swilling Tea Partier. Since he joined the House, he...
- led his fellow conservatives in shutting down the government in 2013
- helped found The Freedom Caucus, which has been "a hotbed for scheming against leadership" (Boehner)
- was one of 25 Republicans who voted against Boehner's reelection as Speaker in January
- was one of 34 Republicans who voted against fast-tracking Obama's new trade initiative
- hates President Obama and took a blood oath against Obamacare
At the moment, Meadows is alone -- at least on paper -- in his quest to assassinate The Orange One. One thing you can bet on: Virginia Foxx will not join the revolt unless success is guaranteed. She's totally a "company woman."
