GOP Chair Pat Brady In Danger of Being Ousted Over Betrayal of Marriage

 

Our grassroots activism is having an effect!

The Illinois Review:

Illinois Review has learned that the Illinois Republican Party's State Central Committee may very well have the votes needed to force Chairman Pat Brady's resignation. We're told that the SCC is working out a plan for IL GOP Vice Chairman Carol Donovan to step in as the interim chairman, and will oversee a deliberate, thoughtful process to pick the next permanent party chair.

Insiders are frustrated that Chairman Brady's calls to GOP state senators in support of gay marriage have distracted from discussions about the state's fiscal and pension crisis.

Three-fifths of the State Central Committee's weighted votes are needed to oust a sitting chairman. Several 2012 Platform Committee members, one GOP lawmaker and the Grundy County GOP have called for Brady's resignation.

And more:

The second Illinois county Republican organizations has called for Chairman Pat Brady (photo right) to resign. Passed Thursday night, the Clinton County GOP's resolution calls for Brady to step down, and the 17th CD's State Central Committeeman Bob Winchester to officially call for Brady's resignation. County Chairman Marc Hoffman will transmit the resolution Friday.

Clinton County GOP Western Vice-Chairman Doug Gruenke told Illinois Review the resolution's passage was because Brady undermined the ILGOP platform when he lobbied state senators to support same sex marriage legislation during the recent lame duck session.

Here are even more IL GOP state committee members expressing their disapproval of Brady's comments on gay marriage.

    The sooner Brady goes the better. A real Republican needs to take his place. He can join the Democrat party where he'll blend right in with his perversion.

    Republican values are already about equality: marriage applies equally to both sexes, and only discriminates against minors and single moms - but equally as well, in each category. Otherwise a guy could marry an animal. . . (doesn't need government recognition).

    We should be thankful for the SSM debate, because we have learned (at least i have) what the concept of marriage truly is including its secular conditions, and its secular reasonable basis. What SSM promoters want is, not to redefine marriage, but to do away with it altogether.

    "What SSM promoters want is, not to redefine marriage, but to do away with it altogether."

    Exactly. I couldn't have said it better, Little Man!

    But to go farther, that is only a part of a much larger agenda by the Left, namely, to abolish ALL restrictions of every kind on sexual behavior, an idea the modern Left inherited from the French Revolution...
