Convene the circular firing squad.
The California Republican Party Board of Directors met in a secret, closed session and stripped Tom Del Becarro of Check-Signing authority.
This may or may not be legal in the by-laws – but that is not the point.
The effort was led by CRP Vice-Chair Steve Baric and others on the board. It will be seen as a major blow to Del Becarro’s chairmanship.
Baric could have been working in concert with the legislators, but it is doubtful the aforementioned Jeff Miller was a part of it. Jeff Miller apparently is not well liked in CRP leadership circles.
Does this mean that the California Republican Party will now be able to raise money?
It certainly has to mean that the fix is in on the Chairman’s race next year.
