Charlie "The Chump" Webster, Maine GOP Chair, Won't Seek Another Term

The Maine GOP chairman who oversaw Republican takeover of the Maine Legislature two years ago but also dealt with controversy during the caucuses and convention won't seek re-election.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ Charlie Webster announced his decision in an email two days after Democrats took back control of the House and Senate and an independent won Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe's seat.

The former state lawmaker from Farmington drew the ire of Ron Paul supporters, some of whom called for his ouster over the way the presidential caucuses were handled. He also was criticized after Paul supporters took over the state convention and failed to be seated at the national convention.

Good riddance

Happy to see you go Webster, you jackass


Have you thought about a sheriff recall in your county?

Flip a few constitutional sheriffs in there and show us how it's done!

The GOP has a special place for

ole 'honest charlie', as they call him. He will no doubt be moving up in the ranks of the party. They love him, he is their kind of guy.

This is why Charlie the Chump

is getting out. he does not stand a chance and he knows it.

From my old post after the CONvention:

We Won Maine with a 100% sweep!
We elected a Ron Paul Convention Chair.
We elected a Ron Paul Convention Secretary.
We elected a Ron Paul State Committee Man and Woman.
We elected 2 Ron Paul National Electors.
The total Delegates for Maine is 24. We can elect 21 and we did that.
Every Delegate for Maine to Tampa is a Ron Paul Delegate.
15 = elected RP Delegates
6 = 3 each from 2 Congressional Districts
3 = Party choices and Automatic.
We found out later that we received 75% of the State Committee Men/Women of the counties in Maine.

He does not stand a chance and he knows it.
And some of the RP Candidates who ran did win. Not as many as we hoped but they put out a
great effort.

Aaron Libby is one. I will find the others and post here.

Ron Paul is My President

So far

Aaron Libby, Heather Sirocki, David Johnson and Ellie Espling and Deb Sanderson.

Maine sounds like a great

Maine sounds like a great place to live if it wasnt so damn cold! Great work!


I would totally move up to NH, VT (awesome gun laws!), or Maine accept I don't want to move further north. I wanna move some where warmer.

Why does freedom go north : /

C'Mon up! It's only cold in

C'Mon up! It's only cold in the winter ;-)

His work is done

I suspect Rand Paul will do the same.

I hope Ron Paul runs or a

I hope Ron Paul runs or a good liberty candidate that did not sellout to obamney. rand is not even an option for me. if i do not see a legit liberty candidate running in 2016 or showing interest before . Then i will not be spending one more dime or sec in the corrupt gop!

rand can stay in kentucky, Romney 2012, rand lost all credibility with me for 2016, rand makes me ill! I truly hope we have a liberty candidate running in 2016, but rand is not an option for me. so if you want rand you better move to my town and secure my delegate spot. waste your own time and money .

Ron Paul 2016

Good Riddance

Screw this guy. That's what you get for screwing Ron Paul and his supporters multiple times. I'm glad that these neocon A$$holes are now laying in their bed. F#$k them.

good now we can start to

good now we can start to infiltrate =P get a libertarian into his spot and ron paul supporter. we got work to do everyone this is just the beginning of the battles to come.


And to clarify, this "Charlie Cheater" is different from "The Charlie Cheater" Cheater. The Nejedly guy that is.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

Duly noted.

I changed the title of the OP to prevent that confusion.

Nejedly deserves his own distinctive moniker.

What happened to those Ron

What happened to those Ron Paul delegates who ran for office in Maine? Did any of them win?

Don't let the door hit your corrupt a#( on the way out. And thanks for all the damage you did to the liberty movement and your party - nice legacy, jerk.

Maine republican party should have a bright future. I believe they elected the youngest committeewoman ever who is a wonderful speaker. They had a bunch of young delegates at the rnc (even if it was temporary for some). They fought the hard battles and hopefully will reap the rewards. Go Maine-hopefully the nation will go that way too!

Another State

Fully for the Ron Paul Revolution?

is there anyone the ELECTED DELEGATES have in mind for a chair?
