  • Issue: Repeal of Motion #00-12
  • Date: 4 June 2000
  • Motion #00-15: It was my intent that with making of this motion #00-12 that notice be served to all that they could not inappropriately display or be little the USGWP name or image. It was and could be used to keep persons that would do such from running for office. However it was not my intent to open the door to hunt down honest protesters who attempted to correct their mistake. That is why I inserted a time limit. To allow for compliance. There for I move to Rescind, Repeal, or Annul. Motion #00-12.
