It looks like there is a coup happening RIGHT NOW in the Utah Republican Party!!
- Why doesn’t Chairman Anderson want the SCC to meet and resolve the Party’s legal costs tomorrow?
- Why does he want to put off the meeting until the end of January?
Is this why?
Because he plans on declaring bankruptcy and “restructure and reorganize the Party” next month!
No, that’s not a conspiracy theory, those are HIS OWN WORDS.
“If we don’t return to the black by January, I will declare bankruptcy. I am committed to that. We will go into court and we will declare bankruptcy. At that point, we will restructure and reorganize the Party.” – UTGOP Chairman Anderson, 01 November 2017
What does “restructuring and reorganizing the party” mean?
The rich aristocrats and political elitists behind CMV have already registered the name “Republican Party of Utah” with the State. They likely have a whole new Platform, Party Constitution, and Party Bylaws written and ready to go.
Chairman Anderson has referred to the “Utah Republican Party” as the “Republican Party of Utah” on numerous occasions – which seemed like an innocent oversight until put into context.
Before being he was a candidate for Chair of the Davis County Republican Party, Rob Anderson and his wife signed the CMV petition.
Much of the language from the CMV petition was put into a bill called SB54. The Party challenged SB54, and one part of it was struck down as unconstitutional. The Party appealed the opinion to challenge the Constitutionality of the remainder of SB54.
After being elected as Chair of the Davis County Republican Party, Rob Anderson and his wife (while both were serving on the SCC) consistently voted to end the legal challenge, and against continuing the legal challenge.
When running for Chair of the Utah Republican Party, Rob Anderson stated: “I am not the ‘Count My Vote’ Candidate”.
After being elected as Chair of the Utah Republican Party, acting against the policy set by the SCC, while waiting for the 10th Circuit Court to return their opinion on the Party’s challenge to SB54, Rob Anderson announced he had instructed the Party’s attorney to end the lawsuit.
The SCC re-asserted their role as the Governing Body of the Party, and instructed Chairman Anderson and the Party’s attorney to continue the legal challenge.
The SCC formed a Special Committee with complete oversight of the legal challenge, as well as its funding to ensure Chairman Anderson couldn’t go against the established policy and attempt to end the legal challenge again.
This committee negotiated the current legal bill, secured funding to cover it, and remove the “legal debt” from the Party. A Special Meeting was called to present this to the SCC and obtain the signature of Chairman Anderson on the agreement.
Chairman Anderson refused to sign the agreement, and instead had it rewritten to put him in charge of it.
Chairman Anderson declared the Special Meeting “invalid”, and the Party has sent out several emails telling SCC members not to attend, told SCC and Party Staff has been calling SCC members, telling them not to attend the Special Meeting.
Why? It looks as if Chairman Anderson is “running out the clock”. In his own words, “If we don’t return to the black by January, I will declare bankruptcy. … At that point, we will restructure and reorganize the Party.”
What better way to keep the Party from paying its bills than refusing to sign the agreement to do so, and attempting to prevent the SCC from meeting before his planned coup of the Utah Republican Party?
“The next State Central Committee (Meeting) will be held on Saturday, January 27 as previously scheduled.” – Rob Anderson, Chairman
AFTER he’s planning to “go into court and … declare bankruptcy”. “At that point, we will restructure and reorganize the Party.”
