Why dont they replace him with a good NC DemocratJohn Edwards?
The last good NC Democrat became a Republican, but some political cartoonists have a good analysis:
This is suspicious.
The most recent edition of RONR may say something different but the 1915 version says:
The secretary, for instance, cannot relieve himself from the responsibility of his office by resigning. His responsibility as secretary does not cease until his resignation is accepted, or, at least, until there has been a reasonable time for its acceptance. It is seldom good policy to decline to accept a resignation. As a member has no right to continue to hold an office the duties of which he cannot or will not perform, so a society has no right to force an office on an unwilling member.
It must not be forgotten that in the case of the absence of the president the first vice president must preside, and in case of the illness or resignation or death of the president that the first vice president becomes president for the unexpired term, unless the rules specify how vacancies shall be filled.
If the Party rules are silent on resignation, I would think 1st Vice Chair Gwen Wilkins is the rightful chair. Roberts Rules does not require the action taken.
