Phyllis Schlafly has been a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her best-selling 1964 book, A Choice Not An Echo. She has been a leader of the pro-family movement since 1972, when she started her national volunteer organization called Eagle Forum.
In a ten-year battle, Mrs. Schlafly led the pro-family movement to victory over the principal legislative goal of the radical feminists, called the Equal Rights Amendment. An articulate and successful opponent of the radical feminist movement, she appears in debate on college campuses more frequently than any other conservative. She was named one of the 100 most important women of the 20th century by the Ladies’ Home Journal.
Recently, Schlafly — once again taking a brave stance against the political establishment — endorsed Donald Trump for the GOP presidential nomination. She simply said, “I think we should unite behind Trump for the conservative movement.”
And for all her hard work and her achievements for the conservative movement, Mrs. Schlafly is under attack by the directors of the non-profit group she formed to battle the forces of the liberal-left agenda and the Washington, D.C. establishment.
According to her associate Ed Martin, “On Thursday, we received a tip from a longtime Eagle Forum member in South Carolina that the Con Con people are pursuing a scheme to push Phyllis Schlafly out of Eagle Forum.” Con Con is the term being used to describe a planned Constitutional Convention.
“Things are happening that are disturbing. In just two days, on this coming Monday afternoon, six directors of Eagle Forum are holding a rogue meeting in violation of the Bylaws unless they are stopped. The rogue group members have a hidden agenda, and most refused to return phone calls personally made to them by Phyllis to ask what their concerns are,” Mr. Martin stated in an email blast.
The so-called rogue group are being advised and guided by a leading liberal law firm that they refused to identify. They also refuse to say who is paying the legal fees for the very expensive team of attorneys, noted Martin.
Calling them the “Gang of 6,” Ed Martin said the group is identified as:
Eunie Smith – who allowed Alabama to be one of the first states to pass Con Con, in May 2015
Carolyn McLarty – who owes Reince Priebus of the RNC for her special committee position on the RNC from Oklahoma.
Anne Cori – who did nothing to stop Con Con as it sailed to passage in Missouri last year, until national Eagle Forum intervened.
Rosina Kovar – who does not return calls to her by Phyllis and has mentioned to someone else that her ringleader told her not to talk to anyone.
Shirley Curry – who does not return calls to her by Phyllis.
Cathie Adams – who disparaged and insulted Phyllis in a publicly quoted interview in Dallas, phoned Phyllis to apologize but has not publicly retracted it.
“Last night we found out that Cathie Adams gave a new on-the-record press interview about this and is trying to push her agenda. Thanks to Cathie we will now see this terrible betrayal of Phyllis play out in the media!” Martin added.
Schlafly certainly needs the help of conservatives to stop what amounts to a hostile takeover of an organization she built.

“I cannot thank you enough for any effort you can take to help Phyllis and Eagle Forum. Phyllis has always stood up to bullies wherever they are found: the Soviets, the feminists, liberals of every stripe, and those who would undermine Phyllis’ successful leadership of Eagle Forum,” Ed Martin stated.
