2-13-16 Briefs

Republican Briefs

Editor - Frosty Taylor repcomm@cox.net or frostytaylor@cox.net        Web Master John Strasser

A Long-Standing Arizona Republican Precedent/Tradition of not allowing proxies at the “special” legislative district and county meetings leading up to the state convention election of delegates to the national convention was turned up-side down by an interpretation Fri (Feb 12)  afternoon from the Republican National Committee Association Counsel Christina Schaengold.

In a Thursday (Feb 11) e-mail to Schaengold, former MCRC Chairman A J LaFaro asked for clarification on the issue that had been a source of conflict amongst Republican leadership as they prepare to select delegates for the 2016 state/national conventions. He wrote: We are preparing for our Legislative District and County Meetings to elect delegates and alternates to our State Convention. There appears to be some confusion as whether proxies can be used at these special Legislative District and County Meetings. It's my understanding proxies have never been used at these types of meetings in the history of our state party, and RNC Rule 16 (e)(6) seems to be very clear on this issue. https://s3.amazonaws.com/prod-static-ngop pbl/docs/Rules_of_the_Republican+Party_FINAL_S14090314.pdf  So my question is:  Are proxies allowed at the district/county/state meetings to elect state and national delegates and alternates?”

Friday (Feb 12) Schaengold replied: “The RNC Counsel’s Office interprets Rule 16(e)(6)’s ban on proxies to apply to state and congressional district conventions, not legislative district and county meetings.”

Over the past decade or longer, former GOP leaders, including former AZGOP Chairmen Randy Pullen and Tom Morrissey, former Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairmen Rob Haney and Tom Husband, and National Republican Committeeman Bruce Ash and National Republican Committeewoman Sharon Geise, operated under the premise that the RNC Rule 16 applied to the local meetings as well as state/congressional conventions. If an elected delegate couldn’t not attend the convention related meeting, the LD chairman was notified, then the LD chair appointed the highest tallied alternate to attend in the delegates absence. Proxies were not allowed.

In notifying the Maricopa County Republican Committee’s Executive Guidance Committee (MCRC EGC) of Schaengold’s interpretation, LaFaro’s memo says he is “surprised no one had ever gotten an official clarification before. Up until now, proxies were not allowed at the district and county meetings. Just ask any of these people - Tom Morrissey, Joe Abate, Randy Pullen, Thayer Verschoor, Rob Haney, Tom Husband, George Teegarden, Mike Hellon or Phil Mason - to name a few - if proxies were allowed in the past at the district or county meetings to elect state convention delegates.  Based on historic precedent and experience, I honestly believed that proxies were not allowed at these very special and important quadrennial district and county meetings.  I still don't believe proxies should be allowed.  However, I wasn't attempting to disenfranchise anyone's ability to vote and for Robert Graham to allege that is just one more example of his vicious and continued attacks on grassroots conservative activists here in Arizona.”

LaFaro notes,Some precinct committeemen and factions within our party will be able to continue to abuse our fundamental right of ‘one person one vote’ by collecting as many proxies as they can muster in order to adversely affect the outcome of these very important state delegate elections” resulting from the RNC counsel’s interpretation.

Friday afternoon AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham distributed a 928 word message of “outrage” charging LaFaro with “trying to prevent thousands of Republican Precinct Committeemen from voting in upcoming party election.” Graham said, “With significant meetings in the coming months being called throughout Arizona to elect delegates to the Republican State Convention, the right to vote by proxy is especially important.” See Graham’s full message at azgop-chairman-defends-rights-of-precinct-committeemen-to-vote-in-election-of-convention-delegates 

Graham, who faced being censured by state committeemen during the Jan 23 AZGOP “Mandatory” state meeting, is considered by many grassroots Republicans to be a puppet of the GOP Establishment and Sen John McCain. State Committeemen had gathered enough petitions signatures the morning of the  Jan 23 Mandatory meeting to bring the “Censure Graham” and “Anyone But McCain” resolutions to the floor for a vote, however, Al Gage  – who was introduced as a RNC partlimentarian - ruled against allowing the state committeemen to vote on either resolution. McCain was censured by state committeemen and Maricopa County Republican PCS in January 2014.

There is concern among some of the grassroots leadership, as well as PCs/state committeemen, that Graham supports allowing proxies at the “special” legislative/county meetings in an effort to control the state delegates election. Those delegate selected at the upcoming April 30 state convention  will select the GOP candidate at the national convention in July.  Earlier this week, grassroots PCs who wanted to fill out delegations applications couldn’t access the AZGOP delegation application on the AZGOP web site because it required a password - which PCs and laymen intereseted in attending the national convention - didn’t have. That was corrected a couple of days ago – after complains went public.

Delegation applications must be submitted on line. The rules/regulations are available at http://arizonagop.org/how-to-become-a-delegate-to-the-2016-state-or-national-conventions/ or go directly (no password required) to the delegate application form at http://arizonagop.org/2016-republican-national-convention-delegate-application/

The Republican Party State Convention will be held April 30, 2016 at the Mesa Convention Center where the state delegates elected by the PCs will gather to elect 55 delegates to be sent to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July, where the Republican Nominee for President is selected.

 

Vicki Alger AZRA Education Committee Chairman: House Education Committee Chairman Paul Boyer won’t let several critical bills be heard, according to reports published this morning (see sources below).

HB2056

statewide assessments; parental opt-out

HB2088

schools; assessments; surveys; informed consent

HB2582

student, teacher data collection; prohibitions

Please take action Today because if the bills are not heard on MONDAY, they will DIE. Please tell Representative Boyer: Arizona is the National Leader In Parental Choice. Parents’ Rights Over Their Children’s Education And Personal Information Do Not Stop At The Schoolhouse Door. Let House Bills 2056, 2088, and 2056 be heard. Please contact him Immediately by phone, email, and social media:(602) 926-4173 pboyer@azleg.gov facebook.com/BoyerAZ/ https://twitter.com/pauldboyer Thank you!

Gina Ray www.OptOutAZ.org : Rep. Paul Boyer (the chair of the House Education Committee) is holding back two very important bills from being heard:  HB2056 (Parental rights to opt out of high stakes testing) and HB2088 (Student Data Protection).  Boyer is even a co-sponsor of HB2056.  So, why is he holding these back?  The Arizona Charter School Association recently told him to oppose these bills and Boyer is a teacher at Great Hearts Academy (a charter school).   There is an obvious conflict of interest involved here.  Boyer needs to let these bills be heard or release them to a different committee.  If they are not heard by the end of next week (by Feb.19th) they will die. Please contact Boyer immediately and ask him to let these bills be heard or release them to another committee: Contact Boyer:  602- 926-4173  or email him at:  Legislature=%2052&Session_ID

Korwin: No-Fly-List-No-Buy-List-Gun-Confiscation-List Are people on the no-fly list so dangerous they can walk past airport checkpoints with guns, knives and bombs because the scanners don't work on them? That's why we need the list? Are the checkpoints just there to keep us in line? But wait -- those people can still take Amtrak to Cincinnati, or drive, bus or walk, they're free to roam anywhere because they're not charged with anything. Or convicted of anything. They just can't fly. You get on the list in secret, without rules. And now Obama wants to ban you from gun ownership based on this list. If you object, he says "that's insane" (his words). Daily Caller blows the lid off this confiscation plan we all knew was coming, that has democrats cheering with him on TV.

AzCDL Update: HB 2018, HB 2224 and SB 1266 passed out of their Committee of the Whole (COW) debates on Thurs, Feb 11.  They will soon be scheduled for Third Read votes, the final step before being sent to the other legislative chamber (House or Senate). We need to keep the pressure on our Representatives and Senators.  It’s time for another round of emails.  The letters at AzCDL’s Legislative Action Center have been updated to urge them to vote for the passage of these bills during Third Read and are ready for you to send.  If you have not contacted your legislators, now is the time to take action.
    HB 2081 would prohibit checking with any federal or state database on private property transfers.  That means someone privately transferring a firearm cannot be forced to undergo a NICS background check. 
email to your Reps on HB 2081.
    HB 2224 would prohibit the state or any political subdivision from charging or levying a fee, tax, assessment, lien or other encumbrance on the transfer of a firearm between private parties who are not prohibited possessors.
email to your Reps on HB 2224.
Together, the passage of HB 2018 and HB 2224 mean attempts at creating “
universal background checks” on private party firearms transfers would not be permitted.
    SB 1266 would allow for injunctions, fines and civil suits when state agencies or local governments disregard state firearm preemption statutes.  Time to punish local demagogues who disregard your rights. 
email your Senator on SB 1266.

Monday Senate COW Hearing: In the Senate, SB 1257 has been scheduled for a COW debate on Mon, Feb 15.  SB 1257 is the AzCDL-requested bill that would exempt CCW permit holders from being disarmed when entering state and local government controlled property unless everyone entering is screened for weapons. No more hiding behind cheap cardboard “no guns” signs.  If you have not already done so, email your Senator on SB 1257.

Letters for all these bills have been prepared and are waiting for you send at our Hot Issues page.  All it takes is a few mouse clicks to make a big difference!  The status and summary of bills that AzCDL is monitoring can be found on our Bill Tracking page.

US Rep. Matt Salmon, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific, applauded final passage of H.R. 757, the North Korea Sanctions Enforcement Act.“North Korea’s aggressive tactics cannot go unanswered. The regime’s long-range missile test last week following their fourth nuclear detonation on January 6th, proves they will continue to provoke our allies in the region and thumb their nose at the international community.  It is past time for additional sanctions to be levied against this rogue regime and those that do businesses with them.  I am a proud cosponsor of the North Korea Sanctions and Policy Enhancement Act and I welcome its near unanimous passage in the House today.  This bill will strengthen sanctions on North Korea, Kim Jung-un’s operations of oppression, and their cyber and nuclear activities.  I look forward to the President signing this bill into law as soon as possible.”
