Speaking out of turn?

The by-laws of the Colorado GOP prohibit members of the party’s central committee from supporting or opposing primary candidates unless the candidate is unopposed. A vice chair of the Pitkin County GOP, a member of the central committee, has published a letter supporting one of the congressional primary candidates in violation of this rule. Naughty, naughty, naughty.

If this is permitted, why can’t everyone else ignore the rule?
