The Great Quorum Conspiracy: Secret Audio from HOT Lane Discussion at NCGOP Convention
Early this morning, a PunditHouse source provided us with the audio from the now famous Executive Committee debate on an anti-HOT lane resolution during this past weekend’s NCGOP Convention.
There have been several stories posted to date regarding the shenanigans that led to the resolution not passing the committee. This post by Kurt Naas of WidenI77.org and this post from the Dailyhaymaker outline what we like to call “Fun with Quorum Calls: Lessons on Bringing Debate to an End when Failure is Imminent”.
Here is a brief synopsis of some key time frames in this audio snippet.
Opening: Adam Love moves the resolution to the floor.
1:55 – Former NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes objects to consent
