Iowa GOP co-chair: Ron Paul supporters disenfranchising Republicans

Bill Schickel, the co-chair of the Republican Party of Iowa, on Saturday blasted the dominance of Ron Paul supporters within the state party.

“The words are fine about reaching out and opening the doors of our party, but when are our chair, our executive director, our communications director, our finance director are all from the Campaign for Liberty that sends a message that is disenfranchising to many, many of our Republicans,” he told GOP central committee members. “So, that is one of the reasons I am running, to bring all of these groups together.”

Paul, a former Republican congressman from Texas, has gained a strong following for his outspoken support of libertarian principles and Austrian economics. He founded the group Campaign for Liberty in 2008.


During the Republican Party of Iowa’s biennial officer elections on Saturday, Schickel failed to obtain enough votes to replace current chairman and former Paul campaign staffer A.J. Spiker. Another former Paul campaign staffer, David Fischer, was elected to be the next co-chair and Paul supporter John Kabitzke was re-elected as treasurer.

4. I say just put them all in a cage and let them beat the shit out of each other

It will solve a lot of problems and could probably raise money for charity.

2. Guess the Paulites didn't get the memo

Disenfranchisement is only ok when its done to the poor and minorities.
