Can a president remove an officer for rigging an election?

How To Run A Meeeting

ASKED QUESTION YESTERDAY,,CAN THE PRESIDENT OR OFFICERS REMOVE AN OFFICER OR ASK FOR HIS RESIGNATION FOR TRYING TO RIG OR MANIPULATE VOTERS TO VOTE ON HIS CHOICE????

Dear Robert,
My goodness someone really wants certain people elected! Hopefully the democratic process won out and no harm was done. To answer your question, usually the people who elected the officer can remove him from office. You will have to look in the bylaws to see what it states about removal of an officer. However, I do not see any harm in this officer being censured by his fellow officers for such bad behavior. Nor do I see any harm in the president taking him aside and talking with him about this. I do not know what you mean by "rig" or "manipulate" voters but if he has been working behind the scenes to control an election this certainly goes against the principles of democracy.

Cheerio,

Little Ben
