Conservatives in the Montgomery County Texas Republican Party are trying to fight back and stand up for the grassroots because the Republican Party of Texas won't take action and enforce their own rules.
A lawsuit has been filed by the majority of precinct chairs in the Montgomery County Texas Republican Party against Chairman Bryan Christ for trying to take over the party and take away their vote in the County Executive Committee. The Texas Supreme Court is currently considering the case.
According to Republican Party of Texas leadership, this is happening in 40 counties across the state. Many new grassroots precinct chairs have become involved in their local parties to try and save America but are facing resistance from long-time party members.
In the Petition for Writ of Mandamus, the County Executive Committee is asking the court to compel Chairman Christ to fulfill his statutory duties and report the correct precinct chairs to the Secretary of State instead of those he has recruited and installed in violation of party rules and state law.
Prior to this action, mediation was conducted within the Montgomery County Republican Party by Republican Party of Texas Chairman, Matt Rinaldi, and Officials Committee Member, Matt Patrick.
Patrick wrote an official summary of the mediation process and results on Nov. 18, 2022, for the Officials Committee. The summary was originally confidential, but has since been released and is included in a declaration from Patrick in the Petition for Writ of Mandamus.
Chairman Christ also has defamed officers within the party by falsely accusing them of Fraud, Conspiracy to Commit Fraud, and Embezzlement. Chairman Christ has been notified that he must print a retraction for those false accusations or he may be sued for defamation.
"Chairman Bryan Christ has caused and created division, acrimony, and irreparable harm to the Montgomery County Republican Party name by effectively dividing the party into two entities," said Attorney Warren Norred.
The majority group of precinct chairs petitioning for the writ represent everyday citizens on the front lines of elections in Montgomery County, putting out yard signs, making phone calls, and educating their neighbors. They are standing up for election integrity, which extends all the way down to the appointment of individuals who fill precinct chair vacancies.
When one elected person can violate the law at will, we no longer have an election system.
