The Florida GOP has voted to strip its chairman of authority and reduce his salary to $1 after he was accused of raping a woman. 

An emergency meeting with 40 board members on Sunday kickstarted the process of removing Christian Ziegler, who is facing fierce accusations after a woman said he raped her after she canceled plans to have sex with him and his wife Bridget.

The board will formally consider whether to remove Ziegler as chair next month.  

Sarasota police are investigating the unnamed woman’s claim that Ziegler attacked her after she backed out of sex when she learned Bridget would not be present.

Ziegler, 40, said he and his wife are being targeted because they are ‘such loud political voices’ – and added that he will not resign over the allegations.

Florida Republican Party chairman Christian Ziegler has said he is innocent following a woman’s claims that he raped her after she cancelled plans to have sex with him and his wife

A search warrant revealed that Bridget admitted to police that the couple had a sexual encounter with the accuser last year. Ziegler told detectives that he did have sex with the woman but that it was consensual.

Ziegler claimed he filmed the October 2 encounter before deleting the video and saving it on a Google Drive, according to police documents.

In a letter to supporters, Ziegler wrote: ‘We have a country to save and I am not going to let false allegations of a crime put that mission on the bench as I wait for this process to wrap up.’

‘My family is rock solid. My wife is behind me 150 percent and we have methods in place to protect our (three) children, just as we have with all previous attacks that we have faced.’

The longtime GOP activist ascended to the state party’s top post in February.
