Frederick Hires Attorneys for Fight
Jeffrey M. Frederick, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, hired two longtime Republicans to defend him Saturday in his fight against the party's governing board.
Lawyers A.J. Dudley, chairman of the 9th House of Delegates legislative district and former federal law clerk (whose dad was a member of the House) and William Stanley, chairman of the Franklin County Republican Committee who worked on the Paula Jones sexual harrassment case against former president Bill Clinton, were retained yesterday.
The State Central Committee has scheduled an emergency meeting to vote on whether to remove Frederick, who is opposed by nearly every top-ranking Republican officeholder in Virginia.
Dudley said in an interview today that Frederick will not resign this week, but he is still seeking "a fair resolution is in everyone's best interest."
