A day after revelations of a March newsletter by the Greene County Republican Committee (GCRC) featuring a call for “armed revolution” should Republicans lose this November, that committee has denounced the column. In an open letter on the GCRC website, the committee’s chairman notes that the newsletter editor has since been replaced and that the committee denounces the author’s rhetoric and thinking, noting “While we believe this election is critical to the direction of the future of this great nation, we do not believe that if the results end up with the re-election of Barack Obama, that will necessitate what the author suggests.”
