Reform Party USA to Hold National Convention

Reform Party USA, not to be confused with the Reform Party of the United States of America, will be holding a national convention in Sacramento this upcoming Saturday and Sunday. From the Reform Party USA website:

RPUSA CONVENTION DELEGATES, NATIONAL COMMITTEE MEMBERS AND STATE PARTY LEADERS AND MEMBERS AND FRIENDS:

or in the event a substitute physical location becomes necessary, the exact substitute location site will be displayed in a prominent notice at the original location site at least 4 hours before the listed opening gavel of the Convention and any such substitute site will also be in the Sacramento California Area within 5 miles of the stated original location.

Only properly Registered Valid RPUSA Delegates will be authorized to fully participate and vote at this 2007 Convention.

Telephonic participation in this Convention has been authorized by the RPUSA National Committee and will be allowed for Valid properly Registered Telephonic Delegates.

Exceptions after these dates can not be assured. Later potential Convention Delegate applicants should plan on in-person attendance.

There is a history of legal issues between the two Reform Party entities. Here’s how Politics1 currently describes the conflict:

The RP was just about bankrupt by late 2004, having less than $50 remaining in its bank account. A few state Reform chapters remain active as of 2006—particulary in Kansas and Florida—but the Reform Party is virtually dead as a national entity. The factional in-fighting in the party even spills over into the RP website or, more correctly, the two rival “offiicial” sites. One is the one linked above and the other is ReformPartyUSA.org—with a pending lawsuit to decide which one can claim the “official” status.

    My bad—corrected the error.

  3. Hugh Jass Says:

    Are they any candidates even running for the Reform Party nomination? Even Imperato decided to run as a Libertarian. Maybe some Ron Paul supporters could try to secure ballot access for him by making him the Reform nominee.

  4. Don ald R. Lake Says:

    Hugh, the various Reform Party dysfunctional factions are not ballot accessed in very many places. [“Looking for votes in all the wrong races?”]

    From one fifth of the 1992 popular vote [Perot, Bush41, Clinton42] to fighting over the ‘honor’ of assuming a $333,000 FEC debt! Oh how the mighty have fallen—-via self inflicted wounds!

  8. BillTX Says:

    The main problem with the Reform Party (Parties?) was that they never seemed to have a consistent platform or coherent ideology. What a joke.

  9. Sean Scallon Says:

    And in other news the Judean People’s Liberation Front (not to be confused with the People’s Liberation Front of Judea) announced it was having its convention…...

  10. Cody Quirk Says:

    LOL!

  11. Janice Miller Says:

    The problem with this is, this isn’t the real Reform Party.
    The Reform Party is alive and well.
