Please note that Jessica Patterson has touted the endorsement and support of David Valadao. It certainly suggests why they are stifiling the release of the below censure resolution against David Valadao. Similar to how Patterson ignored the Bill Brough situation, Mike Madrid and so many others – she and her crew are trying to make this go away without any consideration.
Dear CA GOP Delegate:
My name is Erik Elness. I’m a CA GOP Delegate in the S.F. Bay Area and active on the executive board with my local Republican Central Committee.
I have a simple question for you: Do you believe it was wrong for President Trump to be impeached in the House of Representatives?
On January 6th, Pres. Trump gave a passionate speech encouraging thousands of law-abiding Americans to exercise their 1st Amendment rights and ‘peacefully and patriotically’ let their voices be heard. Around the time of that speech, we saw a group of law breakers assault the U.S. Capitol building and we all observed the ‘aftermath’, as Leftists in the main-stream media and Leftist political circles all tried to blame President Trump for the despicable acts of a few criminals.
Democrats in Congress launched an impeachment effort and regrettably, they were joined by a handful of supposed ‘Republicans’, including Freshman Congressman David Valadao from California, who voted to impeach the President on January 13th.
When I learned a California Republican Rep. in Congress voted to impeach the President, I was disgusted. I spoke with several CA GOP delegate friends and I authored a Censure Resolution to hold David Valadao and his fellow CA Democrat Reps in Congress accountable for their absurd votes to impeach Donald J. Trump.
I submitted the resolution to the CA GOP Resolution Committee timely, before the 1/20/2021 ‘proposed resolution deadline’. Staff verified it was received. I followed up on 1/20/21, 1/25/21, 2/6/21, and 2/12/21 to see if it would be presented to our convention general assembly this upcoming weekend, for a vote by all delegates on 2/21/21.
I have received no response from the CA GOP to date. The resolution has not been uploaded to the convention website.
I’m asking for your help. Whether you support President Trump or not….Whether you support David Valadao’s impeachment vote (which I consider a betrayal) or not…. Shouldn’t our CA GOP delegates have the opportunity to have their voices heard, to have a vote on the censure resolution that I’ve attached to this email?
If you agree that our delegates should have a ‘say’ on this resolution, please forward this email to the following email addresses: [email protected] and [email protected]. In your message, please say, ‘I am a CA GOP Delegate and I want my voice heard, to be able to vote at convention (2/21/21) on the Resolution Censuring CA Reps who voted to impeach President Trump’.
Together, we can make our voices heard. It’s time we as delegates, stood up to take a stand for what’s right.
Thanks for your help on this important issue.
Erik M. Elness
CA GOP Delegate
