Lehigh County Republican Committee VP Resigns, scolds Chairwoman

Share

 

The Lehigh County Republican Committee VP, Dean Browning, has resigned effective Friday the 15th.  Proceeds to scold the Chairwoman, Jessica Bonotai.  The Commentator has obtained a copy of the letter.  Please see below;

Jessica:

This is to follow-up our meeting this morning and to give you written
notice that I am resigning my position as vice chair of the Lehigh County
Republican Committee effective today.

I have truly enjoyed working with you and Trevor over the past 19 months
and I believe you have been a very effective chair with a number of
positive accomplishments.  As a result, this is not a step that I take
lightly.  However, it is vitally important that the members of the Lehigh
County Republican Committee as well as the Republican voters in Lehigh
County believe that they are the ones that decide which candidates will
represent our party in elections.  We can not control what is in our hearts
when it comes to candidates.  But as leaders of the Lehigh County
Republican Committee (and absent an endorsement by that Committee), we have
to avoid any appearance that steps will be taken to advantage one candidate
over another.  In that regard, I think your position as chair is
compromised beyond repair.

Compounding that is the use by you of Nazi references to impugn one
announced candidate (who also happens to be a four time elected Republican
official).  Labeling Republicans as racists, fascists, Nazis, etc. has long
been a deplorable tactic employed by those on the Left.  For Nazi smears to
be used by Republican leadership when discussing another Republican elected
official and/or candidate is completely unacceptable.

Yesterday afternoon and again this morning, you expressed to me your
commitment to continue as chair.  Given that, I feel I can not continue as
vice chair as I believe that would mean I approve of and support the above
actions.

I will continue in my position as Committee person for South Whitehall 2.
Please feel free to share my decision to resign with the rest of the
Committee so that there can be some thought given to a potential
replacement prior to our October meeting.

With regret,

Dean
