What’s a little rule change between friends? (okay, enemies)
Come one, come all, come and see the show.
RNC rules official warns lack of transparency could ‘blow up the convention’
By Daniel Chaitin • 4/16/16
A lack of transparency in the nomination process threatens to have dire consequences for the party, a member of the Republican National Committee’s committee warned Saturday.
Days after Donald Trump called the GOP nomination “rigged” after Ted Cruz swept the entirety of Colorado’s 34 delegates, two members of the RNC’s rules committee debated whether the party should change the delegate rules.
While members of the RNC rules committee meet this week to debate delegate rules, Randy Evans, a national committeeman from Georgia, told CNN’s Michal Smerconish that its too late in the game to start changing the rules.
“There is a sense in the committee that we really shouldn’t change any rules this late in the process,” said Evans.”
“We’re operating in a supercharged political environment. We could blow up the convention as well as the Republican Party,” Yue said.
Though he didn’t mention any particular examples, Yue said another threat to the party is Chairman Reince Priebus making decisions on his own without consulting the majority of the delegates.
Blow up the Party? Hmmm seems the GOPe demolition experts have already done a bang-up job of that. Wow, they better watch that incendiary language.
