The news spread quickly as it does sometimes on social media.
On Saturday, I spoke with Miller (I made the initial contact). He said that he removed 11 precinct committeepeople connected with the Maherns. Of those, Miller said that seven had been appointed after the 2012 General Election. He said that five of them did not attend the reorganization meeting of the party in March. He said that four did not fill their own precinct boards in 2012.
"Honestly, this had to happen," said Miller. "Now, I'm ready to move on to the budget debate and cops not cricket."
Miller said that other Maherns continue to serve in positions that he has appointment power over. Mary Jane Mahern, for example, is still 7th District Vice Chair.
