GOParliamentarian: I Misread Rules

In a Lewiston Tribune article by William Spence, parliamentarian Cornel Rasor of Bonner County admits that he inadvertently gave Congressman Raul Labrador the wrong rule interpretation in the closing minutes of the dysfunctional GOP convention: "When asked what would happen if the meeting adjourned without electing state officers, Labrador conferred with convention parliamentarian Cornel Rasor, a former Bonner County commissioner. He then announced that the existing officers and state party platform would all remain in place. "Everything continues until there's an election," Labrador said. The election would take place "in two years, unless the party moves to do it sooner." Following that announcement, delegates overwhelmingly agreed to adjourn. Now, however, Rasor says the ruling regarding party officers was incorrect. "I inadvertently misread the rules," he said during a telephone interview Tuesday. "It was my fault, not Raul's. It's really that simple." Full story here. (Photo from old Cornel Rasor campaign site)

Question: How do you think this admission by GOParliamentarian Cornel Rasor will affect Barry Peterson's claims that he remains chairman of the Idaho Republican Party?
