–Montes, HIRA: HIRA eblast suggests donors send funds to candidates until HQ has competent leaders. Instead of raising campaign funds or filling the 50% districts without leaders, R/H/L decide to boot HIRA’s district-elected Montes from the State Cmte. Montes responds with LETTER-TO-STATE-CHAIR “you are wasting party member’s contributions and time“. Readers “The right to speak is not allowed in the HRP“. “No need to exaggerate because this just stinks to high heaven. To avoid a conservative stand, people that speak up are banished. This is how far the HRP has sunk“.
–Montes, continued: Exec Cmte met September 1. Four party members opposing the stupidity were removed from HQ before proceedings could begin. HQ couldn’t figure out their eblast system until September 14 – HQ “voted to remove” Montes because HRP “values diversity and differences of opinion.” Montes response “You deserve to know why the Hawaii Republican Assembly strongly encourages donors to give directly to candidates rather than squandering contributions on a silent, scared, poorly run party which never supports its own brave candidates.“ Rohlfing’s Kangaroo Court.
Readers “It took two weeks to announce this? How dysfunctional is that?” “They didn’t announce the changes to the Executive Committee or announce Erin Fale as Executive Director but they announce using their purity pledge resolution to kick one guy off the State Committee.” “Rohlfing fired someone elected by his district. That’s want Obama wants to do with every Congressman who wants to repeal Obamacare.” “Does Tito’s letter say who his replacement is?” “HIRA backed off HRP, and the Party accomplishing nothing. They actually regressed … less districts, less money, less messaging. With Tito gone, let’s watch them flourish since his being on the worthless State Committee apparently was the one thing holding them back.” “Actively hindering’ admits they are paralyzed, they didn’t say ‘attempting to hinder’ or ‘possibly hindering’”. “Oh my. Why can’t HRP just fight against Democrats instead of causing all this infighting?” “Does this action cause the end of the current HRP?” “[Montes] does not allow insidious evil to hide behind phony claims of diversity as RINOs & progressive Republicans do.” HRP supporter Wiggins to HQ “I find it frustrating the leadership can publish such a sad incident within our own ranks, yet we cannot seem to publish announcements on the daily failures of the democrat party“. District chair “Chickensh*t move by the Executive Committee…what next? Are they going to remove district chairs that donate HIRA (or Cruz, or Senate Conservative Fund)?”
