Why is a conservative research being smeared as an unsafe web link?
With the new administration of the OKGOP still setting up it's team, a few conservative journalists, including SoonerPolitics founder, David Van Risseghem; put together a research team to begin a series of surveys. We sought the expertise and advice of some former lawmakers and party leaders, to help us.
The surveys are scheduled to run over a few months and will give a more clear understanding of the values & priorities of the grassroots participants who attend party conventions as representatives of their precincts.
When Bob Dani was announced as Chairman Bennett's Executive Director, Dani asked that all correspondence with Bennett "goes through me, and that's just how it's gunna be.". So one of the journalists with the "Unite With Trump" research project talked with Dani late in May, in great detail about the surveys and committed to share the findings with the OKGOP leadership. Chairman Bennett later said the info will be very helpful to him. No objections were expressed at any time. Bennett was told last October that some of those supporting his run for OKGOP Chairman, were forming a policy group under the name of Unite With Trump.
Does The OKGOP want to suppress it's members from talking about values?
It's now Thursday afternoon. I have several questions and I'm avoiding some very troubling conclusions.
- Some folks seem to want to control communications between the grassroots OKGOP delegates.
- Some folks seem threatened by research findings about the values and priorities of the OKGOP delegates.
- Some folks don't seem to follow proper protocols for diligent fact-finding before publishing dire 'warning's of dangerous websites (it's a Google Forms survey, on google's highly secure servers, in Pryor, OK)
