For the last several weeks the Republican Party Of Florida has been trying to make it difficult for Republicans to run for Precinct Committee Persons. These positions are elected once every four years through the local county Supervisor of Elections. Winners in the Republican Party will go on to help shape the state party platform and help select/elect local, state, and federal candidates.
The R.P.O.F had sent a letter to the Florida Department of State ordering local County Supervisor of Elections to change the way Precinct Committee elections were to be run. Their plan was to have chairman (like Lew Oliver) dictate who and who was not to be allowed to run for Precinct Committee persons. I can't divulge sources, but the state party told local chairpersons to 'go down to the Supervisor of Elections office and tell them who was a loyal Republican.' This is akin to allowing the chairpersons to disqualify anyone who didn't already support the chairpersons and their agenda. Talk about rigging an election!!
Fortunately the Florida Department of State and the Florida Department of Elections struck a blow for free and open elections by blocking this outrageous obstruction tactic. Again, I can't disclose sources, but suffice to say that while the Republican Party continues to snoop through our emails and install moles in our Liberty groups, we too have a lot of support within the Republican Party that tips us to their dirty tricks.
Please take this opportunity to sign up to have your voice in the Republican Party heard.

If you can't make these, they'll be others (watch our calendar)
These positions are VITAL to returning the Republican Party to it's Constitutional principles of Limited Government, Lower Taxes, and Personal Liberty. Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity.
The Republican Party wouldn't be fighting us tooth and nail unless they were frightened that their RINO (Republican In Name Only) hijacking of the Party, was about to end. Everyone should stand firm and say 'It's My Party Too!'
If you can't make tonight's sign-up session there will be more. But time is of the essence. We only have a little under two weeks to become precinct committee persons. The race is on and we are gathering lots of support from traditional Republicans. Together we will have a winning team to kick RINO Chairman Oliver out to the curb.
