Newly-Elected Texas GOP Chair Is F*cking Insane


Meet Rob Morrow, the newly-elected GOP chair in Travis County, Texas, who dishes up racist, sexist, homophobic vulgarities and outrageous conspiracy theories at such a prolific pace on Twitter that you might call him the Donald Trump of the South.

Morrow beat incumbent James Dickey with about 55 percent of the vote Super Tuesday and got the gig. Now one day after Super Tuesday, his continuous barrage of unfiltered and bombastic tweets are causing so much controversy that his own party is frantically trying to overthrow the foul-mouthed election winner.

Why is everyone so upset? Possibly because Morrow has expressed many of his interesting theories which include Karl Rove is gay, Marco Rubio is gay, and Hillary Clinton is extra-gay—or “an angry bull dyke,” as Morrow puts it. Other favorite targets: Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and the Bush political family, the former of which Morrow alleges has a penchant for “…rampaging bisexual adulteries” while concurrently opining “…much of the Bush family should be in jail.”

And that’s Morrow just getting warmed up.

The Texas Tribune reports GOP vice chair Matt Mackowiak, a Republican strategist, is so “apoplectic” over the appointment, he immediately announced over social media that he would do everything in his power to remove Morrow from office.

We will explore every single option that exists, whether it be persuading him to resign, trying to force him to resign, constraining his power, removing his ability to spend money or resisting any attempt for him to access data or our social media account. I’m treating this as a coup and as a hostile takeover.

Travis County is the fifth-largest county in Texas and includes the city of Austin, the state capital. Mackowiak said local Republicans had already threatened to resign and, calling Morrow an “absolutely embarrassment to the party,” said he would “not rest” until Morrow was removed as chairman.

In response to Mackowiak’s efforts to remove him, Morrow called his vice-chair “a douchebag” and told the Tribune “Tell them they can go fuck themselves.”

Although Mackowiak has pledged to take any action possible to remove Morrow from office, those efforts will likely come to naught, according to ethics expert Buck Wood, an attorney familiar with county bylaws. Unless Morrow resigns or commits a felony, Wood said, the position is his to hold.

“They elected him county chair, and for two years, he’s going to be county chair,” Wood told the Tribune. “They can try to talk him into stepping down — but other than that, they just screwed up.”
