Black Conservative Group Launches Petition to Remove Michael Steele as RNC Chairman
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND Action, a national 501 (c) (4) nonprofit organization created to educate, motivate, and rally Americans to greater involvement in the moral and political issues that threaten America, announced today that his group is launching a “Michael Steele Must Go!” petition drive. Rev. Peterson was one of the first Republicans to publicly call for embattled RNC Chairman Michael Steele to step down last January, citing his financial mismanagement and lack of conservative convictions to lead the committee.
“I am encouraging the national committee members to vote Michael Steele out in January,” said Rev. Peterson. He added, “Steele has shown with words and by his actions that he is a liability to the party. Republicans cannot afford to go into the 2012 presidential election cycle with a weak and potentially corrupt committee head.”
Here is the petition:
Michael Steele is not the right man to lead the RNC at such a critical junction in our nation’s history. We need a qualified conservative Republican to replace Steele as chairman and lead a unified party to victory in 2012!
Republicans have an opportunity to derail Obama’s hope for a second term, retain a majority in the House, and take the Senate–they should not allow Steele’s ego and incompetence to stand in their way. President Obama and his radical Democratic co-horts in Congress are relentless in their efforts to advance the most ambitious left-wing agenda in the history of this nation including amnesty for illegals. There is no time to waste–Republicans must replace Michael Steele in January.
We need you to stand with us in calling on the 168-member committee to get over their fear of being called ‘racists’ or any other reservations they have and replace Michael Steele with a qualified conservative RNC Chairman in January!
