WYOMING –News today from the Wyoming Republican Party would suggest secretary Charles Curley is on the way out.

The Executive Committee—made up of state party officers and seven State Central Committee (SCC) members from around the state—met via teleconference yesterday. Two motions were made at the meeting.

The first was a motion to suspend the duties, powers, and responsibilities of party secretary Curley. The second motion directed Chairman W. Frank Eathorne to set a meeting of the SCC for the purpose of removing Curley from position of party secretary.

Both motions passed.

“It is the goal of the Wyoming Republican Party to resolve this matter expeditiously with all due respect and dignity to its many members and the public,” Eathorne said in a prepared statement.
