    Christian Ziegler: Republican chairman in Florida suspended amid rape allegation – By Holly Honderich (BBC News) / Dec 18. 2023

    The Republican Party of Florida has suspended its chairman and demanded his resignation as police investigate a sexual assault allegation against him.

    Christian Ziegler is accused of raping a woman with whom he and his wife had a prior consensual sexual relationship.

    Mr Ziegler has not been charged with a crime and has denied the rape allegation. He has refused to resign.

    At an emergency closed door meeting on Sunday, the GOP board voted to strip Mr Ziegler of his pay and authority.

    “Christian Ziegler has engaged in conduct that renders him unfit for the office,” the party’s motion to censure him said, according to a document posted on X by Lee County Republican Chairman Michael Thompson.
