The Bad Guys - Those Who Voted Not to Allow Any Debate on OMOV at the USCF Delegates Meeting in Hawaii

The delegates pictured below voted to table without debate the following motion: "The Delegates formally adopt a One Member One Vote election system for the Policy Board, under which the adult USCF members will directly elect the Policy Board. This new system will take effect after the elections of 1999, for all subsequent elections. The Bylaws Committee is instructed to prepare specific language for Bylaws amendments, to be brought back to the Delegates for final approval at the 1999 Delegates meeting in Reno."

If you should see any of these people at a chess tournament or event, you should harass the shit out of them, try to have them arrested and thrown out, call the police on them, and do anything else in your power to show your extreme displeasure at these people.

Remember, they did not merely vote not to give the membership the right to vote. They voted not to allow any debate or discussion of the issue.
