RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina Republican Party officials say the former state chairman is misleading about how they alerted him on a meeting last month in which party activists sacked him.

Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse released a party staff memo this week challenging allegations Hasan Harnett made at last weekend’s GOP convention. Harnett says he didn’t receive details about the charges against him and people on the Executive Committee who signed a petition seeking a removal hearing by the committee April 30.

The memo says the party sent the charges and meeting notice five ways. The memo included documents showing one package sent to Harnett’s home had been refused. Harnett was accused of overstepping his authority and working to sink the party’s computer system.

Harnett didn’t respond Wednesday to a text seeking comment.
