The Republican Executive Committee passed a resolution approving a three-part test to determine party loyalty. Candidates present at the meeting who were invited to speak were the first to be asked the test questions which were: have you ever registered as a Democrat; have you ever voted for a Democrat and have you ever donated to a Democrat (within the last 15 years). Chairman Chad Groover had just announced that vetting was a simple yes/no based on an honest policy with no policing or enforcement because of limits on time to investigate. The first candidate to speak, Stacey Kuper, County Council Candidate District 21 responded to the first question with a “no” and was immediately interupted by 1st Vice Chairman Nate Leupp who appeard to be reading from his cellphone that Kuper had indeed been registered as Democrat in the State of Florida.
