Richard Morgan, Republican candidate for Insurance Commissioner, betrayed the North Carolina Republican Party in 2004 and was promptly ousted from the NC GOP Executive Committee for party disloyalty.   His many transgressions, as you can read about below, have cost him dearly as he continued over the years to try and remake himself, running for office time and time again only to be rejected by voters.  Voters continually said NO to his kind of politics and it’s time to say NO one final time.  Make an informed choice ion July 17th in the race for Insurance Commissioner.  Vote for Mike Causey on July 17th.

While you may be stifling a yawn thinking about Insurance, I beg you to think again.  This is one of the most important races on the ballot on July 17th.   The Insurance Commissioner is responsible for managing the Department of Insurance and determines how much you will pay for insurance.  That alone should get you coasties engaged.  We need an Insurance Commissioner who will lead the fight to break up the insurance monopoly that exists in this state and give us a free market for insurance.   In addition to regulating insurance companies, agencies, agents and travel clubs,  the Insurance Commissioner is the Chief Fire Marshall and Chief Building Inspector. The Commissioner also regulates bail bondsmen, collection agencies and manufactured housing.  We cannot have a political hack in this job.  We need an experienced, conservative leader.

Here’s the full text of the Executive Committee resolution that branded Morgan a traitor to the Republican Party.  Ponder this as you consider who to vote for in the July 17th Runoff:   Mike Causey, a conservative with decades of experience in the insurance business who will reform the DOI to make it accountable to us, the people of North Carolina; or Richard Morgan, the Benedict Arnold of the Republican Party who is already on record saying that the coast should pay more for insurance.

Be it resolved by the Executive Committee of the North Carolina Republican party that,

Whereas Richard Morgan is registered Republican, and

Whereas Richard Morgan is the Co-Speaker of the House of Representatives, and

Whereas Richard Morgan is the Republican leader of the House as defined in Article VI.B.1.d. of the North Carolina Republican Party State Plan of Organization, and,

Whereas Richard Morgan is a Member of the State Executive Committee and State Central Committee pursuant to Article VI.B.1d. and Article VI.C.1.a. of the North Carolina Republican Party State Plan Organization as a result of his position as Co-speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives, and

Whereas the Republican Party and the NCGOP State Central and Executive Committees exist, according to the preamble of the NCGOP State Plan of Organization, “for the purpose of uniting and coordinating our efforts for maximum power and efficiency,” and

Whereas Richard Morgan has stated publicly his intention as Speaker to defeat his political enemies within the Republican House Caucus, and

Whereas Richard Morgan was intimately involved in the design of the adopted unconstitutional redistricting maps that would likely prevent the Republican Party from obtaining a Republican majority, and

Whereas Richard Morgan has since the adoption of the maps joined in as a plaintiff in legal actions designed and contrived to prevent a Republican majority, and

Whereas Richard Morgan refused to vote for either of the Republican House Caucus nominees for Speaker of the House, and

Whereas Representative George Holmes was the duly endorsed nominee of the House Republican Caucus for Speaker of the North Carolina House, and,

Whereas Richard Morgan’s activities within the Republican House Caucus directly and substantially contributed to the loss of a solely Republican Speakership of the North Carolina House, and

Whereas Richard Morgan’s vote in favor of the House resolution naming himself and Democrat Jim Black as Co-Speakers falls within the meaning of “influencing the outcome of any election against a Republican endorsed by the appropriate Legislative Caucus,” and

Whereas Article VII.G. of the NCGOP State Plan of Organization states that “Each officer and each Member of the State Executive Committee shall refrain from utilizing the powers and dignity of his or her office or position in any Republican Primary for public office at any level,” and

Whereas Article VII, E.2. states in part “Any registered Republican attempting to influence or influencing the outcome of any election against… a Republican endorsed by the appropriate… Legislative Caucus may be declared ineligible to hold office under the State Plan of Organization at the State, District, and
Precinct level for Party disloyalty by 2/3 vote of the State Executive Committee,” and

Whereas Article VII.A.7.a. states “Any Member of a Committee organized under this Plan may be removed by a 2/3’s vote of the respective Committee…,” and

Whereas Richard Morgan was furnished with notice of the charges against him signed by not less than 50 of the Members of State Executive Committee two weeks before this Committee meeting.

Therefore the Executive Committee of the North Carolina Republican Party finds that Richard Morgan’s political agenda is different from and injurious to the North Carolina Republican Party, and

Further the Executive Committee of the North Carolina Republican Party finds that Richard Morgan’s political agenda and his position on the NCGOP State Executive Committee are in conflict and thus his service on the Executive Committee is therefore grossly inefficient under Article VII.A.7. of the NCGOP State Plan of Organization, and

Further the Executive Committee of the North Carolina Republican Party finds Richard Morgan culpable of disloyalty to the North Carolina Republican Party, and

Further the Executive Committee of the North Carolina Republican Party orders Richard Morgan’s immediate removal from the Executive Committee of the North Carolina Republican Party pursuant to Article VII.A.7. of the North Carolina Republican Party State Plan of Organization.

Lastly the Executive Committee of the North Carolina Republican Party declares that Richard Morgan is ineligible to serve in any Office under this Plan of Organization for a period of five years pursuant to Article VII.E.2. of the North Carolina Republican Party.
