Seriously? Here is the scoop on the 17th announced Republican candidate for President, Jim Gilmore

August 5, 2015

During his term as governor, Gilmore chaired the Congressional Advisory Commission on Electronic Commerce.[12] The Commission was charged with the task of making recommendations to the United States Congress on Internet taxation. The Commission’s Report to Congress opposed taxation of the Internet.[13]

From 1999 to 2003, Gilmore chaired the Congressional Advisory Panel to Assess Domestic Capabilities for Terrorism Involving Weapons of Mass Destruction, nicknamed the Gilmore Commission.[14] It presented five reports to Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, and to Congress each December 15 from 1999 through 2003.

From January 2001 to January 2002, Gilmore was the Chairman of the Republican National Committee .[15] Gilmore, who desired to focus on electing conservative candidates across the United States, resigned from this position due to differences of opinion with the Bush Administration, who wanted the RNC to focus on re-electing the President to a second term in office.
