The OKGOP has run up about a $45K debt in the past 3 months.
|The OKGOP State Committee meeting finally resumed
the practice of providing a real balance sheet.
After getting out to a great start in financial recovery from the Weston debt, Chairman Randy Brogdon hit a ‘snag’ this summer in fundraising. Internal strife only added to the financial woes. Governor Fallin and many other state leaders have only offered armchair criticism, and the primary funding for party operations fell upon Tea Party activists to provide.
One wealthy Tulsa businessman told me he was dropping his Elephant Club membership because “the damn tea party took over!”. I mentioned that the Tea Party has always been very active in the party; but he insisted that something akin to a terrorist coup is now running the OKGOP. Now, this businessman has not been to any party conventions. Most of the wealthy party operatives seem to disdain mixing with the commoners. And that is sad. It is the result of some divisive operatives deliberately executing a whisper campaign of fear. Someone is trying to divide and dismantle the OKGOP
