Discussion about financial motivation has been carried on by Bart.
I have answered questions about the TSA bylaws by people claiming that
the TSA could transfer the property or its issue into Wheaton's coffers.
said in another post that Bart may not understand trust management.
Bart did not respond when I asked him if TSA bylaws and/or
regulations forbid tampering with elections in lodges, which is
I do understand trust management. I didn't answer because it was
irrelevant. However, the definition of electioneering IS relevant. Let's
start with Merriem-Webster:
Main Entry: elecˇtionˇeer
Function: intransitive verb
Etymology: election + -eer (as in privateer, v.)
: to take an active part in an election; specifically : to work for the
election of a candidate or party
- elecˇtionˇeerˇer noun
I see do not see "tampering" or any implication of it here.
I said that TSA has engaged in electioneering, which I believe is
I can't find anything about it in the bylaws. A demand to elect new
officers, on the other hand, is not electioneering, although I would
like to see the wording of this demand.
forbidden by TSA bylaws and/or regulations. Shameless
electioneering that Betty Bland and Jeffrey Forth by demanding that
Tacoma elect new officers is well documented.
