Democratic Party election blowing up!

As reported this morning by the Tallahassee Democrat, the election for state chair of the Florida Democratic Party , planned for this Saturday in Orlando, appears to be unraveling. The article confirms that party Chairman Scott Maddox has failed to follow the rules of his party and may have improperly called a meeting to elect his successor. These technical problems were first reported by FloridapolitiX.com.

First Vice Chair Diane Glasser, of Broward County, voiced her concerns that Maddox was not following the rules. According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Glasser cites those rules specified in Article II, Section 2.7 of the FDP Bylaws, which states that one, the election may only be called in the event of a vacancy, and two, that she was the only one authorized to call the meeting. Glasser also noted that since Maddox still holds the office of state chair, the meeting should not have been called. "I couldn't sign papers to call an election because no vacancy exists," said Glasser.

The outcome of this debacle is still in limbo. Whether Maddox will follow the rules of the party or simply go ahead with the election is still an unanswered question. Stay tuned ...

When did she announce her candidacy for Chair?

When did she withdraw?

What day did she publicly voice her concern?

As first vice chair, it was irresponsible of her to wait until now to mention this.

I can't believe that Scott Maddox is going to go on believing that the rules apply to everyone but him. He is no better than TOM DELAY!

What the hell is going on? I wish the Party would say something and straighten everything out. Two DNC members are saying that the election is wrong, and the Party is saying nothing. Doesn't anyone know?

Isn't it great the way Jon Ausman invents/causes problems just for the hell of it since he no longer can do positive things for the good of the Party or anyone else, including himself.

You have attacked Jon Ausman, but what about the two other DNC members that have identified rule violations by the Party.

Are you going to blame the "Tallahassee Mullet Wrapper" again?
