At least, that’s what the Douglas County Sentinel is reporting:
Michael McNeely, the chairman of the Georgia Republican Black Council, will be going to the Douglas County GOP Convention in March after all.
Douglas County GOP Chair Bert Blood said he spoke with Georgia Republican Party Chair Sue Everhart Monday morning and confirmed that the vote at Saturday’s precinct meeting to keep McNeely out of the convention was invalid.
Emphasis added. According to Chairman Blood, Chairman Everhart said that the only reason a precinct would have to vote would be if more people than allocated delegate slots for that precinct:
Blood said Everhart told him the only reason to have a vote on precinct delegates would be if there are more people seeking delegate status than members present. Only five members were present, so Blood said the vote was invalid.
This is an interesting twist (not unlike Justin Timberlake Instagram-ified to some folks) to the story and interpretation on how the precincts are supposed elect delegates.
