Grassroots activists with Carolina Liberty PAC have released a video suggesting that Dr. Ada Fisher — one of North Carolina’s two committee members on the Republican National Committee — has been telling the folks back home one thing while doing something totally different in front of the committee itself.
At the 2012 Republican National Convention, there was a huge uproar over a rules change, pushed through by national party leaders, that minimized the states’ power to name their own delegates to the national convention.
In December 2012, the North Carolina GOP executive committee passed a resolution directing the state’s representatives to the RNC to push for a reversal of the rules changes at the 2012 convention.
Fast forward to April of this year, when the RNC was holding one of its regular meetings. Virginia committeeman Morton Blackwell — a well-respected, legendary conservative movement leader — offered up a resolution reversing the 2o12 national convention rules changes. (Exactly what the NCGOP executive committee wanted!)
The linked video shows Fisher speaking in support of nullifying the 2012 rules changes, but then VOTING TO KEEP THEM IN PLACE. Blackwell’s resolution failed by a vote of 25 for, 28 against.
Carolina Liberty PAC has also released emails where Fisher claims she fought for, and voted for, the reversal of the 2012 rules changes — like the NCGOP executive committee and grassroots asked her to do. But the linked video apparently shows something different.
The evidence shown in the video and emails is troubling. We’ve been big fans of Dr. Fisher. Hopefully, there is a credible, logical explanation for this.
