Some GOP donors are getting donor's remorse after their party failed to deliver a repeal and replace of Obamacare — like they had been promising.

Bob Heghmann, a former New Hampshire attorney, filed a lawsuit against the GOP demanding that they return his donations.

The suit reads, the GOP “has been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats.”

The lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court, names the Republican National Committee as a defendant as well as the Virginia Republican Party, including their chairman and committee members.

Heghmann told reporters that he wants the RNC to refund campaign contributions or put the pressure on GOP lawmakers to act quickly or else they will lose financial support.

Virginia GOP committee member, Morton Blackwell, understands where Heghmann is coming from but he dismissed the lawsuit as a "frivolous, nuisance suit that should be thrown out of court by any judge.”

The lawsuit was filed in the wake of a shaky month for Congressional Republicans. After failing to repeal and replace the Affordable Healthcare Act, their approval ratings dropped to just 10 percent.

Blackwell stated that the lawsuit is a “sign of conservative anger that the Republican-controlled Congress has not yet repealed and replaced Obamacare.”
