Hawkeye GOP: The SCC meeting - Censure

Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye GOP

... In the weeks leading up to the meeting, several county central committees from the Second Congressional District had passed resolutions calling for Lehman's censure, removal or resignation. ... So, it was no surprise when several people showed up at the meeting to air their views on Lehman. RPI Chairman Stewart Iverson told visitors that they could address the committee around 1 pm. I did not keep track of who spoke but all the speakers urged the SCC to act and/or Lehman to resign. Iverson did a good job of allowing people to speak without letting things get out of hand. Well done Stewart. ... While I informed other members that a censure motion would be introduced, I did not lobby any members to support it. During the debate, Kim expressed regrets over her actions and stated that she was stepping down from her position as president of IRLC and that should prevent any further conflicts of interest. She said that there would be a transition and a new IRLC president would likely be introduce at their Spring event. Ultimately the censure motion passed 8-7.
