VA GOP Boots Conservative Party Chair

The State Central Committee of the Republican Party of Virginia removed the defiant [Jefffrey M.] Frederick on a 57-18 vote.

The central committee had called for Mr. Frederick’s resignation in a letter March 4, announcing Saturday’s planned vote for his removal if he did not resign within 30 days. Mr. Frederick has held his position since May, and the committee sought his resignation in January.

Mr. Frederick, a Prince William County delegate, refused to go down without a fight and hired lawyers Bill Stanley and A.J. Dudley for the Saturday showdown.

“You’re probably going to see an invigoration of the grass roots,” Frederick supporter Tony Arjona said when asked how party members would respond to the vote. Mr. Frederick said he represented grass-roots conservatives against the party establishment.
