Resolution for AZGOP State Convention scheduled for April 30, 2016
Immediate past Maricopa County Republican Chairman A. J. LaFaro writes: In accordance with the Continuing Bylaws of the Arizona Republican Party Article VI Section F. Resolutions, I am submitting the attached resolution entitled, “AZGOP State Convention Delegates’ Resolution Demanding Chairman Robert Graham Resign.”
The resolution is 248 words and is being submitted at least 45 days before the Arizona Republican Party’s (AZGOP) 2016 State Convention being held on April 30, 2016. I expect the resolution be immediately forwarded to the Resolutions Committee Chairman and Committee Members with an e-mail acknowledgement of receipt being sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also expect the submitted resolution be sent to each delegate and alternate with the call of the state convention in accordance with the Continuing Bylaws of the Arizona Republican Party Article VI Section F(2) Procedures.
Given Robert Graham’s and the AZGOP’s repeated track record of deceit and obstructionism, I have blind copied several Republican leaders here in Arizona and at the RNC as “witnesses” in hopes this resolution isn’t sabotaged like resolutions were in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
I also encourage those individuals to volunteer to be the Chairman and Committee Members of the Resolutions Committee so the chicanery Robert Graham and Chad Heywood pulled in 2014 and 2015 doesn’t happen again. And let’s not forget the serious ethics violations and chicanery perpetrated by Al Gage, Robert Graham and the AZGOP at the Arizona Republican Party’s (AZGOP) Annual Meeting that was held on January 23, 2016.
Please note that Al Gage, Robert Graham and the AZGOP are currently under investigation for serious ethics violations of Robert’s Rules of Order and the AZGOP Bylaws based on an extensive complaint that was filed with the appropriate authorities
shortly after the January 23, 2016, meeting.

AZGOP State Convention Delegates’ Resolution Demanding Chairman Robert Graham Resign
We, the 2016 State Convention Delegates of the Arizona Republican Party (AZGOP) are obligated to hold all of our leaders accountable for their actions. Only in times of great crisis or betrayal is it necessary to publicly censure our leaders. Today we are faced with both in as much Robert Graham is by far one of the worst Party Chairman the AZGOP has ever endured. So with conviction we rise and declare:
WHEREAS, Chairman Robert Graham
has continued to violate the Arizona Revised Statutes, the Bylaws of the Arizona Republican Party, the bylaws of several of the County and Legislative District Republican Committees, and the latest Edition of Robert’s Rules of Order; and
has repeatedly disregarded and disrespected the will of an overwhelming majority of the AZGOP State and Precinct Committeemen; and
has conducted dictatorial actions that have been calculated and an insidious conspiracy – including but not limited to the AZGOP 2016 State Convention – for his personal benefit, the benefit of his cronies and the Republican establishment cabal.
BE IT RESOLVED that Robert Graham’s constant intimidation, bullying, overreach and unilateral policies will no longer be tolerated;
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED the AZGOP State Convention Delegates censure Robert Graham for his continued disservice to our Party, State and Nation;
BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED the AZGOP State Convention Delegates have lost confidence in Robert Graham, will no longer support him or his actions and demand his immediate resignation.
