Republican club secedes from MACR

Wednesday, January 30, 2008

The UMass republican club voted to secede from Massachusetts Alliance of College Republicans - a state-wide coalition of campus conservative groups - last night after MACR chairman Brian Gwozdz circulated an e-mail calling for club president Brad DeFlumeri to step down.

The e-mail, signed by 29 MACR officials and leaders from campus conservative groups across the commonwealth, accused DeFlumeri of allegedly sexually harrassing female members of MACR member groups. The letter called on DeFlumeri to step down by Feb. 6, at which point MACR would have moved to derecognize the republican club.

DeFlumeri refuted the allegations, calling them "outlandish."

To hear audio of post-meeting comments from Brad DeFlumeri, Derek Khanna, vice president, and Jonathan Tabb, club secretary and publicity director, click here.
