Republican Party New Oath Disqualifies Americans' Elect signers?Submitted by choosefreedom on Sun, 04/01/2012 - 16:18
I attended my precinct convention in Texas, yesterday, and we were required to swear a new oath which basically stated, (I am paraphrasing here) that we would be disqualified from being a delegate for the Republican party, if we have knowingly or unknowingly voted in another party's primary election or had campaigned for another party within the same election year. Also, it was stated to be a Class C Misdemeanor, if you can believe it!
Now, I dont know if signing up at american's Elect would qualify you to be disqualified, but if you want to be a RP delegate, I wouldnt chance it.
Texas is an open primary and we can legally vote in either partys primary without registering with that party (but not both in the same year), but this new oath disqualifies you as a delegate if you do so.
Just wanted to keep ya'll informed.
