We reported earlier on NCGOP state chairman candidate Jim Womack’s frustations over NCGOP HQ not sharing information with him. We also reported on executive director Dallas Woodhouse’s denials of possessing the information Womack was seeking. AND we reported on the email that PROVED Dallas and his team possess at least one of the items Womack was seeking but not getting.
Even after all that, it appears that Dallas and his team are still not playing fair and square with the Womack campaign. Here is Jim Womack’s statement to supporters from yesterday:
When I am elected Chairman of our Republican Party on June 3rd, one of the first policies I will insist the Central and Executive Committees implement is a policy of impartial and transparent governance.
I completely understand the present inefficiency and ineffectiveness in managing delegate lists by the current NCGOP leadership team. But I also find their behavior to border on abject incompetence, rising to the level of gross inefficiency, grounds for some officials being discharged from their official duties.
For weeks I have been asking for the county and district delegate lists that were turned in by the counties to the NCGOP state headquarters. For weeks, I have been told the state headquarters does not have those lists (inherently untrue) and that the district chairs were responsible for supplying them directly, rather than through then state headquarters.
I still do not have half of those lists, but it is readily apparent the NCGOP establishment has them: how else would the establishment be able to send mailers to convention delegates? Not only is this patently unfair, it is intrinsically corrupt.
When I am Chairman, no candidate for NCGOP office will ever be denied the same opportunity to access delegate lists that other candidates may have. I will make it a personal and professional commitment to ensure all of our internal elections are conducted openly and fairly, instilling confidence in our party’s governance. I will never condone internal manipulation and willful mismanagement like we are seeing this election cycle.
I appeal to the county and district chairs who have not yet sent me their county delegate spreadsheets to do so as quickly as they can. I am only asking for the same information they already sent up to their district and state secretaries in March and April. And I urge these districts and counties to send the same lists to all candidates running for NCGOP state office. We need to level the playing field.
As always, I genuinely appreciate your gracious support.
