Gay marriage flap could cost Ill. GOP chair his job

Just weeks after the head of the Illinois Republican Party announced his support for same-sex marriage legislation, some state party bosses are moving forward with plans to oust the state GOP leader, the party chairman said Friday afternoon.

Chairman Pat Brady said he received a phone call Friday afternoon informing him that party bosses are calling a special meeting at which they’ll discuss why Brady publicly bucked the party line on same-sex marriage, as well as other issues such as fundraising, Brady said.

Brady said the March 9 special meeting will only reinforce a negative image of the GOP as a party of “old white guys,” though he said he’ll respect the process.

The special meeting comes after weeks of false starts as Brady’s critics couldn’t organize to gather the required five signatures from state central commissioners to call a special meeting. State Central Committeemen Jerry Clarke, from Urbana, has been working behind the scenes to organize the meeting, according to several party bosses.

1. If you thought Repubicans would learn ...

You'd be wrong.

Lies, fear and hate are their agenda - now ... and it looks like forever.

2. I see this as a good thing. The country has moved away from them, and continues to do so

on this issue, yet they want to claim that hill to die on.


Okay.

3. A true test of character is doing what you know is right when you also know it is unpopular.
