Politico: Key Clark County, Nevada GOP Calls For Priebus Resignation" 5/16Submitted by barracuda_trader on Wed, 05/16/2012 - 21:32
"The Clark County Republican Party formally condemns the actions of Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and the RNC Executive Committee for their flagrant violations of RNC Rule 11(a)," the Clark County party said in a statement Wednesday. "The Republican Party's rules in regard to this matter are specifically intended to ensure a fair process which allows the members of the party to determine which candidates best represent the ideals and will of the membership. By disenfranchising its own members, the RNC Executive Committee and Chairman Priebus have weakened the party by subverting the principles on which it was built. "
"We hope that our Republican colleagues in local and state parties across the nation will join with us in expressing our outrage at having our role in the nomination process usurped by a select few individuals," the statement continued. "Finally, given his outright disregard for the rules that govern our party, we are formally demanding that Chairman Priebus resign his position within the RNC effective immediately."
