A retired Virginia attorney named Bob Heghmann is suing the Republican Party for failing to repeal Obamacare. He claims that by failing to undo the law, the GOP defrauded its contributors.

From the ABC report:
The retired attorney claims the Republican National Committee and the Republican Party of Virginia raised more than $755 million over seven years while campaigning on a repeal-and-replace platform. The Republican-controlled Senate failed last month to approve a new health care bill.
The 70-year-old from Virginia Beach wants the Republican Party to return contributions or threaten lawmakers with losing financial support if they fail to repeal the ACA.
Federal records show Heghmann gave $875 to the Republican party in New Hampshire, where he recently lived and volunteered for Donald Trump’s campaign.
Can we make this a class action fraud suit? https://t.co/wBQ7zSNqtk
