RER BREAKING – BEXAR GOP CHAIR STOVALL STOPS STRAUS #RULE44 EFFORT (VIDEO)

RER BREAKING – BEXAR GOP CHAIR STOVALL STOPS STRAUS #RULE44 EFFORT (VIDEO)

Bexar County Republican Party Chairman Robert Stovall forcibly stopped an effort to officially censure and sanction Texas Speaker of the House Joe Straus, tonight at the party’s executive committee meeting.

When Stovall called for new business during the meeting, Precinct Chair Michael O’Donnell stood to be recognized.  O’Donnell proceeded to move that a #Rule44 resolution naming Speaker Straus be considered by the body.  Shouts of “second” came from the committee. Stovall ruled the motion out of order.

Immediately after the ruling by Chair Stovall, his brother, Lawrence Stovall, a Bexar precinct chair, moved that the meeting be adjourned.  Shouts of “second” came from the committee.  Stovall recognized the “second” and pronounced the meeting adjourned without taking a vote on the motion to adjourn.

Chair Stovall may have felt well within his power to declare the motion to #Rule44 Straus out of order. Shortly after RagingElephantsRadio.com broke the story on September 15, 2017 that an alliance of Bexar GOP precinct chairs were announcing an effort to sanction Straus through the powers of #Rule44, Stovall surprisingly announced a unilaterally-formed “resolutions committee” that would be charged with reviewing any and all resolutions to be put before the entire executive committee.

O’Donnell’s Straus #Rule44 hadn’t gone through the new committee that had been formed previously to this meeting and after the announcement of the effort to censure and sanction Straus.  Frieda Wright, Resolutions Committee Chair, stood to discuss the committee before the body for the first time at tonight’s meeting – previous to the new business #Rule44 motion by O’Donnell.
