Jack Gargan , a retired Florida businessman , was elected the party's new chairman with Ventura's support last summer.Since he officially took office in January , he has complained that Verney has given him no records , no mailing lists , and none of the information that would allow him to actually run the party.A move to remove him is to be debated today at a party gathering in Nashville , Tenn. , and Gargan allies have filed suit seeking the financial records.
Gargan could not be reached for comment.Asked if he hadn't abandoned Gargan in his hour of need , Ventura said , ``You gotta have something to abandon.As far as I'm concerned on the national level , there's nothing to abandon out there.I feel bad for Jack -- he's a good man.''.
Neal Levine of Minneapolis , campaign manager for James Gibson , the only announced Reform Party candidate for U.S. Senate from Minnesota , said he agrees that the conflict at the national level is hurting state candidates.
``This isn't about conventions , '' Levine said. ``It's about the soul of the party.All the infighting is ridiculous.We're doing the Democrats' and the Republicans' jobs for them.''.

Jack Gargan, Chairman
...
While everyone else was watching fireworks and football this weekend, Reform Party Chairman Jack Gargan was preparing his political machine for the new century. The first order of business was selecting new Committee Chairs, and that was easier said than done.
"We have so many qualified intelligent people in the Reform Party, it was really hard to choose. said Gargan. "I had over 200 applicants for approximately 10 positions. I mean it was rough."
The number of applicants becomes more amazing when you consider that these are volunteer positions with no salary or perks. Many of the positions are extremely time consuming, and there are no guarantees. "All the Chairs agreed with me that their appointment should be subject to a six month probationary period to assess their ability to do the job" said Gargan.
Jack Gargan filled the positions with a variety of members from many different states and backgrounds.

Jack Gargan National Chairman (352) 543-5538

WASHINGTON - Twenty-one years ago this summer, a 59-year-old financial adviser from Florida named Jack Gargan began running full-page ads in newspapers around the country decrying a rising national debt then approaching $4 trillion.
"I'm Mad As Hell And I'm Not Going to Take It Any More," the ads said in bold, one-inch type. Eventually, Gargan ran them in 633 newspapers, embedding a coupon in each one that asked supporters to drop a check in the mail to support future ads.
Gargan warned about rising debt in hundreds of appearances on television and radio talk shows and at town hall meetings in all 50 states. He produced T-shirts emblazoned with the name of his organization, "Throw the Hypocritical Rascals Out," or THRO, and compared members of Congress to "drunken engineers on a runaway train" taking the country to the "precipice of economic disaster."
Gargan was an early ally of Ross Perot, when Perot ran for president on an anti-deficit, United We Stand ticket in 1992.
...
Gargan eventually became chairman of Perot's Reform Party, where he was an ally of former Minnesota Gov.

Jack Gargan, now 80, has watched this latest chapter unfold from his home in Thailand.
In 2005, he sold his Cedar Key, Fla., home and moved abroad "because I saw all of this coming and thought the time was right for me to get out of Dodge," he says via e-mail. He keeps in touch with politically active friends, writes an Internet newsletter and catches the latest news on U.S.-based cable networks.
"What is going on in the U.S. financially has everything to do with my move to Thailand," he says. U.S. debt is "absolutely unpayable," Gargan says, unless the dollar is significantly devalued and the political system does what it so far has been unwilling to do.
Of the $2.1 trillion debt-cutting deal, Gargan says "spineless" politicians "kicked the can further down the road with infinitesimal cuts, mostly way out in the future.
...
They're all living in Georgia now, Gargan says, and since those first ads they have produced eight great-grandchildren. Six other grandchildren have been born since the original ads ran, and they're spread out over Ohio, North Carolina and Florida.
"They are all positioning themselves for the big crash, which is yet to come," Gargan says.
