Carolina Republican National Committeeman Buddy Witherspoon doesn't
resign from the Council of Conservative Citizens, the state GOP
should denounce the organization and call on him to step down
immediately, some party leaders say. Failing that, they
add, the GOP should vote to oust the Lexington County party activist
at next year's state convention should he seek re-election to
another four-year term on the Republican National Committee.
