an independent Tea Party group in DuPage County, IL
Several of us headed down to Tinley Park to witness the GOP State Central Committee (SCC) meeting.
There was no need for police other than intimidating the Republican rank and file who had shown up. The meeting started at noon. I arrived about 12:45. A few minutes later, without taking any public comment, they voted to go into executive session and kicked everyone out.
Mr. Kelly led a chat (many not participating) that lasted a minute or two.
