06/12/2021 ** THE COUP BEGINS **  Chairwoman Jilletta Jarvis, Armed with Support from JBH, “Goes Rogue” and Creates her own Entity (with its own new set of bylaws, its own EC, and a new pledge)–claiming it’s the “new LPNH” – and steals assets from party in a highly-coordinated “takeover” / coup. She removes all EC members from party digital assets (including website and member lists and LPNH documents)

6/12/2021Joe-Bishop Henchman (Chair of LNC) Pens a Letter to Members Relaying “Facts” not in Evidence–and/or Later-Discovered Lies. Quoting from his Letter: “She [Jarvis] related that the EC started member expulsions in violation of their Bylaws last week, first with someone no one would object to in order to set the precedent and then to proceed with a wide swath of the membership with a goal of making the party a tool of the state Republicans. She says she has evidence to this effect. Her position is that the EC members who so acted illegally have constructively resigned, and as the only remaining EC member who did not participate in the expulsion, it now falls to her to fill vacancies.”
