Does this mean he is booted? If so, any bets on how many lawsuits the twit will file to challenge the vote?

at least through that big Karl Rove Lincoln Day dinner!

I'm sure Rove's quivering with the thought that event might taint his otherwise spotless resume. I wanna see him really squirm...

As a member of the Central Committee, I was present at this mtg tonight and yes I did hear either Stainbrook or his short sidekick yell out, "You'll be hearing from me/our attorney." Watch the Blade tomorrow as I noted Tom Troy in attendance.

A perfectly executed ninja strike.

me about a new LCRP Facebook group... perfect song for the occassion, just change a few words!!!

... Stainbrook went for the decoy, and missed the real thing! Take that you little sniveling parking lot junkyard dog!

Tom Troy, Toledo Blade writes: “The vote that Lynn Olman claimed happened tonight, never happened,” she said.

“I am completely shocked and appalled at the behavior of Lynn Olman and company. It was like a drunken brawl,” Ms. Gallagher said.

The above is PERFECT example to NEVER believe everything you read in the Blade...c'mon Mr. Troy..you were there. You have no objective credibility. You write what people say and NOT WHAT YOU OBSERVED??

QUESTION: Who can you picture more in a 'drunken brawl', Lynn Olman and Company or Jon Stainbrook and his associates. "Nuff said there.

I was there and believe me, it was not 'Lynn Olman and Company'.

of where the video of last night is? Stain has always had one of his own do video, I believe in lieu of minutes; I had heard there was an independent video taken by someone.

Care to help out, folks?

LOL

This is funny. I hope they toss him out on his ass.

At least then I can start donating money again.

To the Real Republicans: Please call, fax, or email Kevin Dewine .... apparently it's up to him, not attnys on whether Stain stays or goes.

Do you have his contact info or where we can get it?

MikeyA

Apologies..it's not Dewine but the State Central Comm. :
From The Blade: Mr. DeWine did not immediately respond to a phone call last night, but the party’s executive director, John McClelland, questioned how the chairmanship of a county party would be up to the state chair to decide.

“I would have to look at the Ohio Revised Code, but I can’t imagine it would be Chairman DeWine’s decision,” Mr. McClelland said.

He pointed out a section of state law that says that if there is a dispute about positions and members of the central committee, the issue should be settled by the state central committee.

HERE IS THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE"S WEBSITE.
Scanning it, I didn't notice a phone # or even e mail...will continue to research.

Thanks MikeyA

so you guys are now straight on who to contact.

are you sure it wasn't a 'drunken brawl'?

LOL!! Best ya can do huh? Poor sad little 'argument'.
BTW...never hurts to call Dewine either. Guess your guy's out......and mine is in. BYE...

I don't have a 'guy' in this cafeteria catfight.

My thinking is that all parties involved here pretty much deserve one another.

It was hilarious, though, to see you blast the Blade guy and then use the information he provided in the story to get the facts straight on the 'contacts'.

You folks carry on with your drama-club meeting here...it's a public forum, though, so the 'public' can weigh in on the tomfoolery.

BYE...

"....though, so the 'public' can weigh in on the tomfoolery."
WOW...didn't think anyone still used the 14th century word "tomfoolery". Now THAT is hilarious. and YES...bring on the public forum, bring on the Lucas Co GOP audit!! Can't wait!!!
HAPPY 2010!!

'didn't think anyone still used the 14th century word "tomfoolery".'

I am pretty old.

After posting my 'tomfoolery retort' to you the thought came to me (with a smile) that you would respond re:my Plato quote from 400-ish B.C. and surely you would proclaim 'victory' by about 1400 years (lol). You never did and frankly I feel (kind of) bad for that comment esp. after asking my Summa Cum Laude U.S.C. daughter about the word 'tomfoolery'. She said, I think kind of siding with you, that "yes it's a ridiculous word but used for a ridiculous situation." On THAT I think we can both agree! My NewYears Resolution is to find COMMON GROUND with those of different political leanings so as to not lose this AWESOME AMERICA we ALL have as our home. And get rid of entrenched and corrupt politicians (most all?) NO MATTER what letter is after their name! Wishing you a Happy Holiday!! (Merry Christmas/Happy Hannukah)

to you, tombrown and good luck on your noble intentions.

From the WSPD News Website:
"STAINBROOK OUT AT LUCAS CO. gop
A Christmas-time coup at the Lucas County Republican Party sees a shakeup in leadership. Gone are Jon Stainbrook and Megan Gallagher -- voted out Monday night by nearly 100 of the party's central committee members.

New party chairman Jeff Simpson says the central committee was not happy with the way the current leadership was running the party, and a lot is at stake in 2010.

Simpson says he expects a challenge to the vote, and adds he was refused keys to the party headquarters on Superior Street. Jon Stainbrook refused to speak with WSPD News after the meeting."

This reminds me of when the Lions went from Gary Moeller to Marty Mornhinweg, Can you feel the excitement?

Pink Slip

To us it seems more like when they fired Millen. Yeah they might not win more games but we won't have a douche in the front office.

MikeyA

I see your point MikeyA. At the least, it would be interesting to have TWO parties in town

Pink Slip

there are two parties in town - A Team and B Team.

The A-Team Democrats

The B-Team Democrats

And the C-Team Democrats led by JR Block through John Stainbrook

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

That WTOL did not make mention of it on the 6pm news.

Seems like a bigger story then Carty's pre-leaving party. That was terrible.
