GOP State Leadership Continues to be Challenged by Corruption: One State Chair Charged with Rape, Another Refuses to Step Down

By New York Post. Florida’s Republican Party has formally pushed out its embattled former chairman Christian Ziegler amid rape allegations. . .

In November, a report revealed that Ziegler was under criminal investigation by the Sarasota Police Department.

A woman, who claims to have known Ziegler and his wife for two decades, accused him of raping her a month prior inside her Sarasota home on Oct. 2, 2023. . .

The incident has garnered national attention in part because his wife Bridget Ziegler is a co-founder of Moms for Liberty, which works to elect conservative mothers onto school boards.

Group of Michigan GOP Committee Members Vote to Oust State Party Chair; She Says They Have No Authority to Remove Her

By Daily Wire. A group of Michigan Republican Party committee members gathered Saturday afternoon and voted to remove state party chair Kristina Karamo — but Karamo said she would not recognize their authority.

Forty of the 45 Republicans at the special meeting voted via secret ballot in favor of Karamo’s removal, according to multiple sources and a video announcement, The Detroit News reported. Karamo and her team said that the Republicans seeking her removal have not abided by the party’s bylaws, and she scheduled a special meeting on January 13, which she says is the actual special meeting.

“These individuals have not followed the MIGOP bylaws to call a meeting, change bylaws or remove any member,” Karamo told The Detroit News earlier this week. “They have zero legal authority to conduct business regarding the Michigan Republican Party or its state committee.”

Karamo rose to prominence within the Michigan GOP after challenging the results of former President Donald Trump’s 2020 election loss. She then ran for Michigan secretary of state with Trump’s endorsement in the 2022 election cycle, a race she lost by 14 percentage points to incumbent Democrat Jocelyn Benson. Karamo was elected to state party chair in February, largely riding the support of conservative grassroots activists.
