Missed this on Thursday, but Rob caught it: Tommy Whaley, the State Republican Executive Committee member who was recently accused by state GOP Chair Susan Weddington of tape recording conference calls and leaking the tapes to the Chronicle, has no plans to resign and says he cannot be fired.
"They can't fire me, because I was elected by the people of the First Congressional District," Whaley said.
Whaley has been given the option of resigning from the State Republican Executive Committee, according to the Associated Press.
Whaley is accused of letting non-committee members listen in on GOP conference calls on April 7 and May 13.
"The long and short of it is, they want to try and make me mad to get me to resign. And I'm not going to resign," Whaley said Wednesday, declining to discuss specifics of complaint.
"They are going to have a meeting in a couple of weeks, and they are going to find some way to charge me. As soon as I hear back, I'll know better what I've been charged with."
