PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Suzanne Gallagher has resigned as chairwoman of the Oregon Republican Party after only six months on the job.

Gallagher announced her decision before she faced a recall vote at this weekend’s party convention in Bend.

Party members accused Gallagher of mishandling finances and making inappropriate hiring decisions.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/xf13Ec ) that Gallagher’s written statement was read to party members at the convention. It said in part: “The events in the last couple of months are a testimony to why Republicans are not seen in a good light. The actions of some members have demonstrated the character flaws perceived by the public as uncaring, angry and antagonistic.”

Gallagher was elected to a two-year term in February and was charged with helping the party end its losing streak in Oregon.
