FRANK R BARTLE, Chairman / PA Montgomery County Republican Committee

"Korean-American group blasts GOP no-shows" - Times Herald October 31, 2000 A6

Dear Frank:

In the referenced piece, authored by Margaret Gibbons, staff writer, you were noted as saying that "because of the Democratic bent of the organization [CAMC], two GOP members had resigned, including a Korean-American whom the county GOP leadership last year had supported for a row office position."

What a pity for gop chairman to hatch such a sleazy and perverted concoction! Here is a Darwinian clock for you: On or about the middle of March 1999 a Korean-American [let's name member #1] whom the "county gop leadership had supported for a row office position" lost a bid at the local gop convention by a person who was not supported by the county gop leadership. What a Kangaroo leadership it was! The first CAMC-sponsored Candidates' Public Debate took place on October 26, 1999. All invited republican candidates rejected the debate, and it prompted the member #1 to declare, "[w]e feel very much insulted ... I think it [gop] is prejudiced against the Korean community that they are not coming to this [debate] ... [t]hey are not letting us be part of the process ... I am a Republican ... wanted to do everything I could for them ... [n]ow I am ashamed." (Philadelphia Inquirer Oct 20, 1999) The remaining gop member #2 got elected to a school board in the November election 1999. The #2's appointment as an officer of CAMC was rescinded on November 22, 1999. ( The invitation letter to the debate 2000 sent out on September 19, 2000. Those invited gop candidates turned in their declining letters within a week or so. CAMC came to learn on or about October 10, 2000 that member #1 made an explicit public endorsement* of a gop candidate. (*since April 2000) The #1's appointment rescinded on October 17, 2000. The second debate was held on October 27, 2000, and all invited republican candidates were no-shows and dodged the debate again this year. What a remarkable gop solidarity! On October 28, 2000 a letter to Bartle released. Now Bartle hopelessly murmurs that "because of the Democratic bent of the organization, two GOP members had resigned."Ignotum per ignotius. Hence, Bartle volitionally fabricated a false, untrue and indelible statement. A bottle it is to Bartle of an indefensible case of a malignancy of an asinine excuse littered with demagoguery and poltroonery. Quod erat demonstrandum. Cogito ergo sum.
