Montgomery County GOP sues Disgraced Chairman
"Patriots are in control!"
Alexa, play “Another One Bites The Dust.”
Correction: We originally spelled Mr. Bryan Christ's name as “Crist” (the former seemed too odd and blasphemous to have as a last name.) We made sure to correct this error.
After a local intra-party civil war, the grassroots finally attained the upper-hand; the Montgomery County GOP’s Executive Committee announced its lawsuit against disgraced Chairman Bryan Christ (no relation to Christ.) Local conservatives attempted to reason with their establishment leader, even having the Republican Party of Texas Chairman Matt Rinaldi mediate, but Christ’s shenanigans continued (more on that later).
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX - The majority of the Montgomery County Republican Party Executive Committee has filed a Writ of Mandamus lawsuit against Chairman Bryan Christ with the Texas Supreme Court. This lawsuit is the result of Chairman Christ's multiple violations of the Texas Election Code, which have resulted in dividing the party.
In the Petition for Writ of Mandamus, the County Executive Committee is asking the court to compel Chairman Christ to fulfill his statutory duties and report the correct precinct chairs to the Secretary of State instead of those he has recruited and installed in violation of party rules and state law.
Prior to this action, mediation was conducted within the Montgomery County Republican Party by Republican Party of Texas Chairman, Matt Rinaldi, and Officials Committee Member, Matt Patrick.
Patrick wrote an official summary of the mediation process and results on Nov. 18, 2022, for the Officials Committee. The summary was originally confidential, but has since been released and is included in a declaration from Patrick in the Petition for Writ of Mandamus.
Chairman Christ also has defamed officers within the party by falsely accusing them of Fraud, Conspiracy to Commit Fraud, and Embezzlement. Chairman Christ has been notified that he must print a retraction for those false accusations or he may be sued for defamation.
The full statement can be read here.
Another factoid is his insistence on holding official meetings in bars, away from the eyes of other party leaders. There’s currently no intel on whether Party money was spent on booze.
Thankfully it wasn’t a gay bar. Nevertheless, this establishment is not a place “conservative” leaders should meet for formal duties.
For the full story, we spoke with Montgomery County Vice Chair Jon Bouche, who’s pretty cool and should’ve been the MCGOP’s kingpin. After much conversing, Bouche gave a comprehensive rundown of Christ’s alleged misdeeds.
Did a “Purple Politics” podcast giving Democrats a platform (with the honcho of the local Democratic Party).
Working with Democrats during primaries (seriously, abolish open primaries already.)
Wife is a political consultant (a profession less concerned with electing conservatives, and more about mammon.)
Impersonated Tea Party members in 2014.
Confessed to endorsing the same local candidates Democrats did.
Selected his own steering committee of “yes men.”
As we covered previously, locking down the Montgomery GOP Headquarters for no apparent reason (confirmed by the party treasurer, who proved that all rents were paid and there’s no excuse for such behavior).
Concluding much detail, he summed up the lawsuit’s ramifications in full.
“This is not just about Brian. This is about the precinct chairs across Texas. They have rules if you violate they will remove you from office. We went to the RPT showing them all the rules he violated with evidence and the RPT is now telling us we need to sue.”
“So we are suing. But we don’t have standing. The court is going to say why aren’t they (RPT) fighting?”
“RPT says they have limited resources and time and they don’t want to get involved in a lawsuit. So we are going to the courts and filing a criminal complaint. We are doing all that. At the end of this rainbow if the court says they don’t wanna touch this since it’s a political party, we are going back to the RPT and demanding they do their job.”
“RPT has the power to just remove the chair for violating the rules.”
Montgomery county is home to good people, but sadly suffers from a cringeworthy GOP Chair. If this lawsuit succeeds, there’s no telling how much county-level decay could be undone.
As you can tell, we love to see establishment sycophants fall. If Christ is removed, it could spell disaster for inept County GOP leadership across Texas.
All in all, much toil, escapades, and brain cell massacres could’ve been avoided if we created a “new machine” and reformed the Texas GOP along the lines of our logic-based model we proposed. Chair Rinaldi, thanks for your mediation, and we look forward to witnessing your next moves.
