AZGOP Chair Graham facing demand for resignation

Friday’s edition of the Arizona Daily Independent reports on the organized effort by grassroots conservative stalwarts of the Arizona Republican Party to offer a resolution calling for Party Chairman Robert Graham’s resignation at the AZGOP 2016 State Convention scheduled for April 30. The effort is being lead by immediate past Maricopa County Republican chairman, A.J. LaFaro.

The ADI writes, “Graham and his cohorts had used numerous maneuvers to prevent a vote on the resolution at the at the Arizona Republican Party’s Annual Meeting that was held on January 23, 2016.” The report concludes: “Unfortunately for Graham, he may have run out of maneuvers.”

Seeing Red AZ posted Former MC Chair AJ LaFaro’s resolution demands Robert Graham resign on March 15, which includes a copy of the resolution. We also posted AZ GOP chair Graham imposes “poll tax” on delegates.

The unpopular Graham — a John McCain surrogate committed to the 80-year-old senator’s sixth, six year reelection — is reportedly seeking the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee (RNC).after current chairman Reince Priebus steps down in January 2017.

Imagine. The duplicity and havoc Robert Graham has wrought in Arizona he can magnify by 50 as national chairman.

    Robert Graham is not the AZ Republican chairman. He is the chair of the McStatus Quo. Apparently he doesn’t care that John McCain has the support of George Soros and has worked with San Francisco Obama donors to oust conservative precinct committeemen from the Republican Party here in Arizona. I know that for a fact. My wife and I were among them.

    I’ve seen state chairmen come and go over the many years I’ve been active in the Republican party. I’ve never seen one who needs to go more than Robert McGraham. He’s a self focused schemer who hasn’t a conservative bone in his body.

    Robert Graham is the poster child of the type of republican establishment leader that has caused the division now so prevalent in the party. His removal and replacement with a leader whom is more interested in a united party is crucial at this time. No one expects that all the people involved will be satisfied, however, what we do want is a fair deal and someone who will represent all of us. I know I am standing back and waiting to see what happens at the April 30th convention before I submit my precinct committeeman petitions for re-election.

    I fully expect some kind of sneaky trick or behind closed door deal to take place.

      You’re absolutely right to be suspicious. Anyone who isn’t suspicious of Robert Graham needs to have their head examined. He’s repeatedly shown us exactly what and who he is.

    In the past many of the state chairmen were successful business leaders who put their own money into the state party. Robert Graham has implemented another device: He’s charging the Republican activists who have devoted years to electing Republicans to local, district and statewide offices $50 each to attend the upcoming meeting! ! I’ve seen it referred to as a “poll tax” and find it difficult to disagree with that assessment. He should be ashamed, but shame is not a quality he appears to possess.

    • Army Of One says:

      Many of those PCs are retired couples who can ill afford $100 to attend the meeting. This scandalous charge has never previously been in effect. Graham is pricing free labor too high.
