Jim Hoft at the Gateway Pundit writes that Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum has taken punitive steps against members who have fomented division over Schlafly endorsing Donald Trump in March.

Cruz Supporters Turn On 91 Year-Old Phyllis Schlafly After Trump Endorsement.

On March 11, 2016 conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump for President at his St. Louis rally.

But not everyone in her organization, Eagle Forum – or her family – agreed with Phyllis Schlafly’s decision.

Back on Feb 8th, Cathie Adams was asked Phyllis Schlafly for her endorsement for Vice Chair of the Republican Party in Texas. Phyllis graciously gave Adams her endorsement.

Then in March Cathie Adams attacked Phyllis saying she was “manipulated” into endorsing Donald Trump.

Adams would not return Phyllis’s calls this week.

Today Cathie Adams was let go by Eagle Forum for disloyalty to the founder and her attempt at a rogue board meeting to take over the Eagle Forum Board.

Illinois Review reported:

“Today, the Missouri Eagle Forum Board met and voted to replace Anne Cori as member of that board. This was the final step in the process because of Ann’s disloyalty to our founder of Eagle Forum, Phyllis Schlafly,” an update sent out by the group’s national director Ed Martin said Thursday.

A few months ago, the statement said, “Anne refused a request by Phyllis to step aside as President of Missouri Eagle Forum.”

Mrs. Cori chose instead to endorse U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.

In addition, Cathie Adams, who has travelled worldwide over the years representing Eagle Forum at United Nations meetings, was also publicly reprimanded by Schlafly. Adams is in the midst of a statewide campaign to leadership in Texas’ GOP.

“Phyllis has rescinded her personal endorsement of Cathie Adams in her race for Vice Chair of the Republican Party of Texas,” the statement said. “Cathie has been disloyal and just this week has refused to return Phyllis’ phone call.”

Adams also endorsed Cruz for president.

Phyllis Schlafly has been a historic leader in the conservative movement in America. She has been fighting the liberal agenda for over 50 years. It is a shame that her closest supporters have now turned on her for supporting Donald Trump for president.
What a shame.
