Over a dozen grassroots North Carolina Republicans from as far away as Waynesville and Emerald Isle gathered today at NCGOP Headquarters in Raleigh to protest the treatment of the duly elected State Chairman, Hasan Harnett.
Todd Bennett, Executive Director of Republicans for Ethics and Transparency (RFET), said: “RFET will continue to investigate and make public the truth behind this fairy tale hacking accusation against the Chairman. If Harvey West, Kim West, and the rest of the mutineers wish to selfishly drag other parties into this fraudulent claim, it is solely their responsibility and the fault will lie solely with them. Don’t blame the people with the flashlight, the fault lies completely with them.”
Erik Wilson, North Carolina Republican Liberty Caucus Vice Chairman and Wake County Republican Liberty Caucus Chairman, said: “The grassroots spoke unanimously when they elected Hasan Harnett as Chairman of NCGOP. From the moment he announced the crony eastablishment has employed a litany of dirty tricks against him, including canceling his hotel reservation for the 2015 NCGOP state convention. Trying to shut out some people with a $90 delegate fee and elimination of same day registration is a slap in the face to all grassroots Republicans. This a power struggle between the Central Committee and the Chairman, and Hasan deserves to have the authority that comes with the office to which he was elected. That is why it is imperative that every grassroots independent Republican voter show up at their Precinct, County, District, and State Convention to elect new Central Committee members who will honor the 24th Amendment to Constitution of the United States.”
