A former Miss America Board member is trying to overthrow the organization’s current leadership, according to Page Six.

In one instance Vaden Barth calls for the board to “commit to providing participants the opportunity to showcase their talent, communication skills, style and physical fitness during competitions at every level.”

Pageant representatives told Page Six that they’ve already addressed these topics. 

The outlet also reports that former FOX News host Carlson received a lot of backlash after the pageant got rid of the swimsuit competition earlier this year.

Vader Barth left in July along with a number of others, with two of the women claiming that they didn’t resign by choice.

22 state pageants reps signed a petition calling for the rest of the board to resign, while 30 former Miss Americas issued their support for Carlson.
