Banana Benefit Press Release


Austin Ron Paul supporters sponsor Banana Benefit for Banana-less Republics of Nevada and Maine

February 15, 2012

Austin, TX – The Austin Ron Paul Revolution is hosting a Banana Benefit for the GOP Establishment of the Banana-less Republics of Nevada and Maine this Friday, February 17th at 7:00 p.m. CST. The group welcomes media and the public to join them at Brave New Bookstore, 1904 Guadalupe Street in Austin. The event will be live-streamed on the internet at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/all-things-ron-paul.

Local Ron Paul grassroots supporters say they are outraged over claims of voter disenfranchisement and election errors, as well as allegations of careless and even secretive ballot-handling that have surfaced following the Nevada and Maine Republican Caucuses earlier this month.

Ron Paul supporters fear that the GOP Establishment is attempting to anoint the next Republican Candidate in true Banana Republic style. However, being so far north of the equator, neither Nevada nor Maine grows bananas—a necessary ingredient for a Banana Republic. Ron Paul supporters intend to help them out with this problem.

At the Banana Benefit, the group will be mailing letters to leadership at Nevada and Maine Republican Party headquarters—along with shipments of bananas which will be collected at the Banana Benefit event.

The group wants to inspire others to organize similar events around the country in an effort to call attention to the issue of election integrity.

"We think sending loads of bananas shows symbolically that we consider the Nevada and Maine Banana Republican leadership's lack of election integrity and ballot control to be not so different from election shenanigans that occur in true banana republics where they DO have bananas," says grassroots organizer Pam Farley.

"The Republican Party is concerned about voter fraud and ensuring the integrity of the ballots and that all legitimate votes are counted. When the Party believed that the vote of overseas military personnel was not going to be counted, it sprang into action over such unfairness," asserts Jerri Lynn Ward, a Precinct Chair for the Travis County GOP.

"Where is the outcry over the Nevada Caucus, the questions about integrity and the chain of custody of ballots and in the counting of those ballots—and over the Maine Caucus where the State GOP Chair has baldly stated that not all votes will count?" asks Ward.

Bananas to the Nevada GOP? Well, that might be a fine idea if the interim chairman was not a Ron Paul supporter. Feel free to search my name here in the Daily Paul if you need proof of such.

The Nevada GOP Chairman resigned the day after the caucus, and I will be interim chairman until April 22, when we can hold an election for a replacement. The resignation was submitted in early January effective the day after the caucuses. As such, I'm pretty offended that fellow supporters of Dr. Paul are questioning my certification of the Nevada results. Yes, I was the chairman who certified the results. Believe me, if I thought for a hot minute that there was widespread fraud and inconsistencies, the last thing I would have done was sign off. I certified the results with ALL FOUR campaigns in agreement that we had an accurate count in Clark County. ALL FOUR, including the Ron Paul campaign.

This whole "Nevada was a fraudulent vote" thing needs to stop now. I won't speak for any other state, but I give you my word as a fellow supporter that these results are correct.

Any chance...

your interim status turns into full time status when April 22 rolls around?

This should be on the front page

The caucus times were confusing

and lots of supporters just didn't go out to vote. Same thing happened in Minnesota. People talked the talk, but didn't walk the walk.

Awesome - glad the zip code was fixed

Bananas to Nevada - love the ideas, what a great message to the GOP of Nevada & other States that mess with Congressman Pauls totals...next the lame stream media..

Working to free the hemp seed - Thanks to Congressman Paul's efforts HR 1831. Peace

Hmm...I got 3 really icky bananas on my counter

right now. To make banana bread or send them to Nevada? That is the question!

What are you fightin' for?

Great idea! I'll have to help

Great idea! I'll have to help them out, though I'll have to set aside the good bananas for myself, hehe ;)

Make sure they are organic

so they can't claim we sent them pesticides in the mail, LOL. Those monkeys need bananas. +1 from me.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Yes but what message?

That's more important. The message should say: GOP is IRRELEVANT without Ron Paul - something to that effect. We want them to know that the GOP is over.

Good suggestion!

Our local grassroots is organizing a Banana Launch Ceremony complete with press conference. We have someone drafting a letter to be enclosed with the bananas. When it's ready, we'll share it.

In the meantime, we're certainly open to ideas! Discussion welcomed!

Thanks for bringing up the topic of the message :-)

I think it is cute, but I am

I think it is cute, but I am too mad to be cute to them. I think on the note you should tell anyone who was a party to this skewing of our votes to shove them up their A$$!

Worthy suggestion!

Worthy suggestion!

Understand the desire to send this type of message

but our MEDIA pals would likely get more negative mileage out of this action than any satisfaction we would get.

That said, if something like this is going to be done big-better fresh, steaming piles of Horse SH*T-more accurately characterizes the numbers they are trying to foist on the public.

That is what some folks said before we pulled this gag on Guliani in '07 (sorry for the poor quality video)


But, as you can see in the included news clips.. local media had a good time with it. The story ended up being town buzz the following day - even though it only aired on 6pm news (the Giuliani camp had it pulled from the 10pm airing! lol)

Work with your local media via press release for some coverage - local stations are generally far more friendly than national networks.


Rudy is the ugliest woman EVER!! He's an insult to cross-dressers too if you ask me! lol
Was amusing though. Thanks!

That was worth

the cost of the ghoul resurfacing in my consciousness.

Funny stuff.

Good point about pressing the matter locally.

Good Luck on your effort.
I had +1 your post despite the reservations expressed by my comment.

RP Nevada HQ Requests Vote

RP Nevada HQ Requests Vote Totals!
Send Vote Tallies to Nevada RP HQ! Here's our chance to officially deal with possible vote fraud.

Verification, please?

There is nothing on the official campaign site alluding to this. I recommend searching out verification from the campaign before filling in the form linked to in that post.

My Error! I spread this

My Error!
I spread this thinking I was leading various private efforts to an official site. Sorry for my ignorance! Apparently Nevada HQ is not asking for vote tallies.

No problem, completely

No problem, completely understandable - we're all eager to tackle election fraud! Thanks for the clarification :-)
