Seems some members of the Kootenai County GOP Central Committee aren't satisfied that real Republicans are running in their primaries. On Tuesday, the local Elephants will consider a proposed resolution calling for an ad hoc committee to screen primary candidates to ensure that they're really Republicans (and not Libertarians, Ron Paulers and Constitutionalists, like more than a few precinct committeemen). The resolution reads in part:
- Whereas, Promotion of the Republican philosophy cannot be done while simultaneously supporting candidates who oppose the Republican philosophy; and
- Whereas, The KCRCC has failed to show any concern regarding whether or not a Republican candidate has promoted or opposed the Republican philosophy; and
- Whereas, This failure has created a vacuum that has been filled by special interest grops and the meida, who often obfuscate a candidate's philosophy; and blah, blah, blah (full resolution here).
- You can read minutes of local GOP try to censure 4 Republican legislators here.
- Tuesday agenda here.
Question: What do you think of the resolution's attempt to screen GOP primary candidates?
