The chair ran the convention strictly by Roberts Rules of Order and had the Sergeant at Arms, the Nueces County Sherrif Jim Kaelin evict one of them for being out of order.

These two statements, as presented, contradict each other. Under Robert, the chair cannot unilaterally evict someone who has the right to be there.

Excuse me, but I was there. The Chairman of the Credentials Committe had the floor and was reciting the report of that committee. The disruptor was trying to prevent that report from being heard. Standing up and/or yelling "point of order" does not give one the floor.
