Yes, and as there's exactly four states in Region 3, it's a little
easier, but still not easy. (Also, thanks, btw)
Just got an update from LPMI, and their bylaws prevent an email vote
(asynchronous voting). They would need to meet in person or have a
conference call to pass a resolution. Their next scheduled meeting is is
in February. (I have heard privately from some officers in LPMI, and
they're very unhappy with the Arvin situation and would like to be able
to take action.)
Still no word from LPKY.
All over social media is arguing and strife over this mess. Some are
seizing this situation to grandstand and pot stir, furthering the reach.
This is the situation. Not a pleasant one.

It's an honor to be given their trust in representing LP-Indiana, LP-Ohio, LP-Michigan and LP-Kentucky on the LNC. I take my "representative" role seriously, and the LP state affiliates within my Region are my constituency.

Failing that, the LPO calls on the LNC to remove (through the formal suspension process) Mr. Vohra before more damage can be done."
> 3) I've informed the state chairs of Region 3 that I'd need a clear directive to make a motion per bylaws article 6.7 regarding suspending Arvin Vohra. (With the understanding that the motion might not get to a vote, or pass, if voted upon.) Two of the four state affiliates in Region 3 have told me they want this action taken. Since attempting to suspend an officer of the LP is a serious matter, I told the state chairs in Region 3 that I'd need at least 3 of the four states to agree on the action to be taken. At this time, I await direction from LPMI and/or LPKY. (LPMI has taken the issue into discussion and hopefully will let me know their decision soon.)
> This is why I've not made public comments regarding the controversy surrounding Arvin Vohra. I represent the four states in Region 3, which means it's not my place to direct them, but it's the reverse, they direct me. If the consensus of Region 3 is to make a motion to the LNC, I shall do so. If that happens, it will be another opportunity for anyone on the LNC to second such a motion.

Unfortunately, not one member of the LNC felt comfortable supporting my motion at the time. I hope that changes now.
