The Oregon Secretary of State has fined the Oregon Constitution Party for holding unpublicized nominating meetings this summer over the past three months. Constitution Party candidates, including endorsing other party candidates, were selected for Governor, State Representative, State Senator, Congress and U.S. Senate. Nomination meetings are supposed to be announced 10 days in advance to fellow Party members, but this notification was ignored.
Only steering committee members appeared to know that there was a nomination meeting being held, hence a “secret” nomination convention.
There may be a chance to restart the nomination process before the August 30th deadline.
