Republican Executive Committee Member Calls for Resignation of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus

Due to an alleged violation of the national GOP's Rule # 11 (bans favoritism of one candidate while more than one candidate exists), an Executive Committee member within the GOP calls for the resignation of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

Washington, DC, May 07, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Jeffrey Bales, a Member-at-Large of the Pima County GOP Executive Committee (Tucson, Arizona), says:

“Due to violation of the RNC's Rule #11, I call for Chairman Reince Priebus to resign immediately. It is un-American and beneath the standards established by the Republican Party to violate this rule. It is unethical to support a single Republican Presidential candidate (Mitt Romney) while other Republican candidates remain in the race.

"Further, I call upon Mitt Romney to denounce this behavior and ask that the RNC repair the breach of trust by including the other remaining Republican Presidential candidate, Dr. Ron Paul, in any dispensation of funds, effort and labor. It would benefit all Americans if Mitt Romney would further clarify the fact that 2 candidates remain if he challenged Dr. Ron Paul to a debate."

Rule #11 states:
"Rule No. 11 Candidate Support
(a) The Republican National Committee shall not, without the prior written and filed approval of all members of the Republican National Committee from the state involved, contribute money or in-kind aid to any candidate for any public or party office except the nominee of the Republican Party or a candidate who is unopposed in the Republican primary after the filing deadline for that office. In those states where state law establishes a nonpartisan primary in which Republican candidates could participate, but in which the general election may not include a Republican candidate, the candidate endorsed by a convention held under the authority of the state Republican Party shall be recognized by the Republican National Committee as the Republican nominee.

(b) No state Republican Party rule or state law shall be observed that allows persons who have participated or are participating in the selection of any nominee of a party other than the Republican Party, including, but not limited to, through the use of a multiparty primary or similar type ballot, to participate in the selection of a nominee of the Republican Party for that general election. No person nominated in violation of this rule shall be recognized by the Republican National Committee as the nominee of the Republican Party from that state."

Ron Paul supporters are going to turn the GOP into a real political party!! This is truly amazing. Run the commies out, guys!

It is not "commies", my friend. It is The Illuminati.

It is not "commies", my friend.

Such "labels" are only "smokescreens".

Of course

but communism/collectivism is how these elites strip us of everything. Communism is only meant for the masses. The elites never intend for themselves to live that way, they are above us.

"Illuminati" is just another smokescreen

"Communists"/ "Commies"/ NWO operatives/ Illuminati/ UN Agenda puppets/ no matter what smokescreen, we know them by their lack of honesty and appreciation for Bill of Rights in a Constitutional Government, and their destruction of Constitution and rules, to "win" at all costs, and failure to work to restore America.

Ironically, folks who call themselves "Commies" or Illuminati, wouldn't recognise themselves by the statements made of them here.


is not a smokescreen.They are the ones who are behind this fight to stop Ron Paul from winning.They are the ones who own Obama and Mittens lock stock and barrel.They are the ones who killed JFK,RFK,MLK,and a whole lot of others i could name.after 40 years of research,i can tell you,the illuminati are no smokescreen my fried,they are very real.

Some see things as they are and say why,but i dream things that never were and say why not. Robert F. Kennedy


You are well aware, Watchman. You and I know what we are talking about. Then again, "our friend" here has joined us at The Daily Paul all the way from France. What did you expect from The Rothschilds?

These people are now ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED, with good reason: WORLD AWAKENING. WORLD REVOLUTION. In True Seriousness.

I suggest avoiding rantings against the illuminati and aliens if you want to attract voters to Ron Paul.

I'm just saying.... you're not helping getting votes by blaming secret organisations for killing JFK. This sort of crazy talk only leads to alientation.

We are like the mechanism of a watch: each part is essential.

Who has mentioned "Aliens?" I didn't. Anybody? Hello?

Hmmmm. Nope. Sorry. No-one is talking about aliens, JRothschild.

And, Mr. Rothschild: You have joined us here at The Daily Paul all the way from France! -----> http://www.dailypaul.com/user/50243

Les Illuminati seront détruits. Révolution!

Save it and hard copy it for later.

Awesome reporting here from everyone.

Time will tell if this is addressed, or not.



Nothing like pulling their pants down in public.


If you know a Ron Paul supporter or even

someone with brains on a R Exec Committee, call them and get them to join this protest. Imagine if just two (or 3 or 4) more Exec Committee members start calling for the resignation too!!! It could happen.

kick Reince out !

wow, this is great, some one has the balls to call this out within the party !

He is not acting alone.....how about the rest of them?



Kick him! He is corrupt.

Kick him! He is corrupt.

Rules #11 petition on change.org


You can go here and sign a petition to have him removed. Getting people to sign it would help show the RNC how many votes they'll be losing.

Please help propagate the URL.

lets get him out of there!


Let's get that to at least 200.

Signed! - What a Great use of Change.org!

Normally I shun change.org because of its' ties to Obama... But this is one of those rare occasions when a tie to Obama might help!

...Kinda like how when Rachel Maddow reports on Paul fairly... Same concept.



I signed too

Did you Tweet the petition link?

Somebody out there check this please. It would seem to me that dues-paying members of the Republican Party could bring a class action lawsuit for misuse of funds against the RNC. It would be very simple to get thousands of plaintiff signatures via a petition from change.org. A high-powered Democrat for an attorney would make sure this was smeared all over corporate media, to say the least. Make some noise! How can we get through the primary states with this being pushed on the source most people call 'news' and robo-calls telling folks Romney is the only candidate left in the race. We MUST draw media attention any way we can. If I was a member of this group (stop to heave up my toenails) I'd be looking for a lawyer and writing up a petition right now!

OMG, he said...

...that would be the final and last goal to get it... the limit is the sky...
