Essential Estrogen: Another litmus test?
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
Joni Scotter of Marion is a member of the Iowa Republican Party's
State Central Committee. She has recently come under attack for
choosing to be a member of Terry Branstad's corridor campaign
committee. The by-laws of the Party do not say anything about members
working or volunteering for campaigns. Much like anything else, there
are those unwritten rules. It sounds like this might be one of them.
Personally, it doesn't make any difference to me. The people who
usually get elected to committees like the State Central Committee are
activists to start with. How is one expected to just sit and fold
their hands when an important race is going on. More of an issue of
Joni working to support a Republican is the fact that one of her
loudest complainers was just paid thousands of dollars to help elect a
Democrat! Who is really failing this litmus test?
