The Battle of Fulton County

The Political Insider has the scoop.

A group of Fulton Republicans asked Wednesday for the state GOP to intervene in the March 24 re-election of county chairman Mike Dvorscak, citing chaos and possible voter fraud in the local convention that resulted in his victory.

We’re hearing that critics of the way the meeting was handled have located a DVD recording of the proceedings that will be submitted as evidence. And that the video appears to back up some of the charges.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and no doubt invite some hate mail. But . . .

I have talked to a good many people who were there. Some were serious fans of the other guy. Some like the present guy. Some could care less.

It is my opinion that the Fulton County GOP Convention was so deeply flawed that there must be a new election. The integrity of the party necessitates it.

    I laughed at the funny part.

    You know, where you used the words “the [Republican] Party” and “integrity”

    I do so love it when the Republicritters eat their young!

    Not true about Jimmy. He didn’t monitor the US’s 2004 election and that involved a bloody, vicious dictator…but enough about Cheney.

    Oh, Skeptical, when are you going back to your bunker to finish your conspiracy tomes for Oliver Stone?

    Fulton is not the only County the Georgia GOP will be looking into as far as irregularities; Fayette County has a huge mess too.

    The exiting chair presided over 14 individual precinct organizational meetings where no one attended and elected 30 to 35 people to be delegates at the Fayette GOP convention that were favorable to his agenda.. He went against the state party rule which is if no one is present from a precinct no one can be elected as a delegate or alternate to the county convention.

    Rumor is that someone was reprimanded at the 10th district convention for forging signatures in a county precint meeting.

    I think it’s time for Dvorsack to step down. Whether it was lying about the Shirley Franklin episode or organizing a county convention that was at best anarchy and at worst stolen, he’s managed to turn the pride of the GA GOP into an embarrassment.

    How sad it is that his tenure has now been classified as a desperate attempt to control the money, ironically it’s how he spent the money through his infamous “lying and stealing” mailer that began to get him in trouble in the first place. Even if he were to stay on as Chairman he’d be completely ineffective and ignored.

    I’m hearing other candidates and officials are already treating him like pariah and view him as too controversial to associate with.

    Keep this in mind. The convention was poorly prepared and poorly run but that does not mean there was something up with the outcome. Mike focused on winning, not on running the convention. I voted for Shawn and I would love to see him Chariman but I do not think it is necessary for us to take this to the State GOP. We are prolonging our divide and this is the last thing we need to go along with the budget debate and our minority in COngress. If this is overturned you then have the other half of the party up in arms. We need to fight our own battles and do it in private, not in the papers.
