Morrow has been controversial throughout his tenure, but the party wasn’t able to get rid of him because he was elected legally.
This week, Morrow filed to be a write-in candidate for president of the United States. A party chair can’t be a candidate for another office.
Morrow has also been outspoken in his criticism of Donald Trump and protested outside the Trump rally in Austin this week with a sign that read, “Trump is a child rapist.” On his Twitter account, he links to a lawsuit from a woman who claims Trump raped her.
Aside from hating his own party’s nominee, the party has been critical of his constant posting of scantily clad women on his social media pages.
Here’s the hypocritical statement from the Republican Party:
In accordance with state law, upon filing as a write-in candidate for President of the United States on August 19th, 2016, Robert Morrow became ineligible to hold the office of Travis County Republican Chair. There is absolutely no place for rhetoric as distasteful as Mr. Morrow’s in the Republican Party of Texas. We are excited to move forward with the Travis County GOP and the new incoming Chair as soon as an election is held to fill the position.
Interesting they criticize Morrow’s rhetoric as distasteful, when Trump has been spewing racist, mysogynistic and anti-Muslim crap.
