I’m a member of LD23, a state committeemen, treasurer, state delegate, national delegate, Precinct Committeeman and a trusted citizen who has volunteered for many jobs including being on the credentials teams at all LD23 elections as well as at the county and state elections.
I have seen and witnessed the collection (harvesting) of proxies by many including the chairman. The GOP pushed a bill through to stop the democrats from harvesting ballots yet at our elections they harvest proxies giving the person who collects them unethical voting power. With 119 people on a list approved and distributed by the Chairman Jim O’Connor who he himself brought in 9 proxies.
The unfair practice at LD23 by a chairman who distributes a list to new and old PC’s of who to vote for has resulted in an unfair election punishing anyone who Jim O’Connor can’t control.
Because of his unethical practices many hard working committeemen have left the LD. If this practice continues it will destroy the GOP from the bottom up.
Jim O’Connor must answer to these allegations for the sake of the party and our country. This corruptions must stop and a new election for state committeemen must take place before the state election next month.
