Summary of the MIGOP January 13 Special State Committee Meeting

Kristina Karamo, Chairwoman

January 16, 2024

The following is a synopsis of the MIGOP January 13th (this past Saturday) special State Committee meeting.  Some committee business dealt with leadership status, so we wanted to be transparent with delegates regarding the breakdown between the regular members, proxy voting, and the votes taken. We achieved a quorum with 83 credentialed State Committee members and proxies. The number of regular members varied between 56-62 throughout the course of the meeting. 54 is the number required to achieve a quorum.

  • The committee voted nearly unanimously that the January 6th gathering of State Committee members was an illegitimate MIGOP state committee meeting and that none of the business conducted at the gathering has any legal standing.

A vote regarding the following matters was recorded –

Counting only regular State Committee member votes:

Vote 1 – Kristina Karamo removal (under Article IV Section G per MIGOP bylaws, proxy votes aren't allowed under this section).

  • 1 Yes, 59 No

Vote 2 – Malinda Pego violations of conflicts of interest (under Article III Section M 9&10):

  • Counting regular State Committee members and proxy vote - 76 Yes, 2 No, 3 Abstain
  • Counting only regular State Committee member votes - 52 Yes, 2 No, 3 Abstain

Vote 3 – Bree Moeggenberg, Andy Sebolt, Ann DeLisle, Dan Lawless, JD Glaser, and Tim Ross violations of conflicts of interest (under Article III Section M 9&10):

  • Counting regular State Committee members and proxy votes – 61 Yes, 5 No, 15 Abstain
  • Counting only regular State Committee member votes – 41 Yes, 5 No, 10 Abstain

These seven individuals colluded with pro-democrat media operatives to undermine the Karamo administration and engage in a mission to drive chaos, contempt, and confusion within the Michigan Republican Party. Since they could not legally remove Chairwoman Karamo, they attempted to take control of the Party by strong-arm tactics.

Many of our Precinct Delegates have expressed that they are confused and frustrated with individuals from imposter organizations posing as leaders within our Party.  As fraudulent emails falsely claiming that Chairwoman Karamo was removed continue circulating, MIGOP must ensure that irrefutable facts are conveyed to our members, MI voters, and the media.

The Michigan Republican Party is moving forward and focused on the March 2, 2024, congressional district convention.
