Madison County GOP Joins Growing Number of Counties Calling for Pat Brady’s Resignation

Written by David E. Smith, IFA Executive Director

Meanwhile, Pat Brady laughs it up while the
Illinois State Central Committee
has yet to call for a special meeting
to deal with this troubling situation.

On Monday evening, the Madison County Republican Central Committee joined the going chorus of calls for Pat Brady to resign his post of Chairman with the Illinois Republican Party.  Late last year it was revealed that Brady was working with Democrats to lobby Illinois state lawmakers to redefine the institution of marriage.

Here is the resolution they passed:

RESOLUTION CALLING UPON PAT BRADY TO RESIGN
HIS POSITION AS CHAIRMAN OF THE
ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY

WHEREAS,  the Madison County Republican Central Committee (“MCRCC”) is the established committee of the Republican Party in Madison County, Illinois; and

WEHREAS, on or about January 3, 2013, the Chairman of the Illinois Republican Party, Pat Brady, publicly endorsed legislation pending in the Illinois General Assembly that would permit same-sex marriage in Illinois and, subsequently, personally lobbied members of the Illinois General Assembly to support said legislation; and

WHEREAS, the MCRC no longer has confidence in Pat Brady to lead the Illinois Republican Party.

Pat Brady Digs In — Will County GOP Calls For His Resignation

Written by David E. Smith, IFA Executive Director

This past weekend, Pat Brady, Chairman of the Illinois Republican party, was interviewed on Fox 32 about his political activity to help Illinois Democrats pass radical Leftist legislation to redefine marriage and family.  This conflicts not only with the Illinois Republican Platform and the National Republican Platform but also with the views of the majority of voters in the state –specifically members of Brady’s own party.  (Watch the video HERE.)

Political Reporter Mike Flannery begins by attempting to confuse the issue by suggesting in his first question that the private political activity of Brady can be seen as outside his very public and official position of GOP chairman.  Not only is this absurd, it is intellectually dishonest to try to bifurcate the political activity of the two.… Continue Reading

Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady recently participated in a campaign urging Republican lawmakers to back legislation to legalize “same-sex marriage” in Illinois.

The resolution reads as follows:

The McLean County Republican Central Committee met Monday, Jan 14th, at their Headquarters and voted unanimously among those present the following:

“The McLean County Republican Central Committee calls for the resignation of Pat Brady as the state Republican Party Chairman due to his promotion of issues contrary to the Republican Party platform.”

IL GOP Chair Pat Brady Promotes Same-Sex Marriage

Written by Laurie Higgins

There are many things wrong with Illinois politics, but today our attention should turn to the feckless and destructive antics of the chair of the Illinois Republican Party: Pat Brady. On this the first working day of the New Year, the purported standard-bearer for conservatism in Illinois is busy calling Illinois Republican lawmakers, urging them to vote to destroy marriage. Yes, you heard that right. IL GOP Chair Pat Brady is trying to convince Republican state lawmakers that marriage has no intrinsic connection to gender, sexual complementarity, or procreative potential.

Does anyone think his efforts resulted from deep study of the public purposes of marriage or the implications of eliminating the central defining feature of marriage? Does anyone think he has seriously studied the work of Princeton Law professor, Robert George on what marriage is?… Continue Reading
