Maine GOP Recounting Votes ( ! )

The Maine Republican Party, under fire from Ron Paul supporters for its mishandling of the state’s recent caucuses, is now re-canvassing counties and municipalities to recount vote totals.

POLITICO obtained an email from the State Republican Party asking local chairmen to send them the vote totals from their local straw polls.

Tar and feather this traitor!

ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK...until we win!

I like...

...the tar and feather idea.

What am I missing?

I don't see any direct evidence from the OP that they intend to announce anything before March 10th. All they may be saying is that they decided to count Washington County's votes in the totals they release on March 10th. There also seems be no real explicit declaration that they are recounting all of the votes or filling in the missing data from the first count.

I don't see how this helps...


Charlie Webster has NO intentions of updating ANYTHING. He is just saying what people want to hear so you get off his back.


Dr. Paul Winning with 41% !!!

They are updating the Watch The Vote 2012 numbers !

They haven't updated much at all

since the actual caucus. There isn't much to be taken from that spreadsheet, other than the fact they only have 2,000 votes accounted for. That's not even half of the total votes.


when will they announce the new winner or old winner again and when will we see the new totals?

Peace Out!


Will the delegates be "recounted", "reconfigured", or otherwise? We need to be ultra diligent in making sure they don't try and screw the campaign out of delegates with this. Otherwise, we need to rush Washington County. Charlie Webster needs to be replaced at the Maine State Convention still. After Saturday, let's redouble our efforts out West! This is the tipping point! Let's Go!

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17

Your Title is Inaccurate So is Politco's

They are just saying that so we let up. Now is the time to double our efforts.

Here is what the King of Caucus Fraud ACTUALLY said:
"We are reconfirming the totals from the Presidential Preference Straw poll."

THIS IS NOT A RECOUNT, all Charlie plans on doing is RECONFIRM his rigged numbers.

Can someone at the CAMPAIGN quickly do a TV ad for tmo night?

I'd like to see a TV ad that encourages all WASHINGTON COUNTY RP voters to get to the polls to vote for our candidate!

Grassroots conducting calls to get voters out-join in

Thread with details posted on DP. Please join this effort.


This guy is so politically dirty that I doubt he has a shred of integrity to HONESTLY count the vote. Rather, he'll just likely reconfirm his act of defrauding the fine folks in Maine of their voice.

One small victory

I knew it was a matter of time before they broke. There is no way on earth that they could have pulled this unjustice off, especially with the Ron Paul Liberty and Justice supporters. I'm sure that the great people of Maine had alot to do with the change of heart also. Get to your caucus's on Saturday and win Maine for Ron Paul!

Just make sure that we have

Just make sure that we have 500 Ron Paul voters in Washington County on Saturday. That would be enough to offset whatever rigging the Romney camp will do to prevent Paul from winning.

Rally the troops to vote in Washington County. Use the social network!







and this.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Every Aspect of This "Recount"

needs to be documented with both photographs and testimony from every precinct. I wouldn't trust these crooks currently running Maine's GOP with a 1000' pole. The great folks in Maine must be clearly embarrassed by the reckless actions of their state chairman and others involved in the count.

Stop whining and start winning

Just ask yourself this, do you really think a recount is going to hurt or help Paul. Then answer this, is it the same people doing the counting? And didn't the one guy said it confirms Romney winning by a bigger margin.

Forget about the recount, if your in Maine and if you give a damn about what happens, get your car, find supports, drive them to the polls, feed them if you have to, stand with them. Don't be passive!!!

There was 1996 votes for Paul in Maine, there should be 1996 voters in their car finding about 1996 voters!

Forget the recount, win Washington county, and win it good!

~because i care

Agreed, and if you are not in Maine, make calls Fri &Sat

Grassroots folks here on DP have plea for folks to make calls. They have lists, scripts and everthing needed to make this happen. Only thing missing is YOU.

Game changing opportunity is knocking on your door. Answer the call. No amount of posting comments can compare to the difference having a landslide of caucus-goers show up for Dr. Paul. We need a veritable army of supprters to show.

Sign up tonight. It is free and takes 45 seconds of your time. Make calls tommorrow and Saturday AM like the election and the country hangs on this one battle.

Make Saturday's caucus our D-day invasion. Turn the tide. Let's win this.

The People Who Know the Count Was Wrong

Those who know the count was wrong are the ones who will report them again. And verify them again.

All we have to do is check to see what changed and if there's a bad pattern, for example, Romney votes increasing everywhere.

I would expect substantially all the counts to be the same as before, and we might see some transpositions.

Also, the 17 of 18 missing counts might have been combined into the 18th which, if you break it out, won't change the total at all.

They can't manipulate the vote if those who counted do their jobs and verify.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

I noticed Romney is less "praised" on LA radio, tv media after..

the Maine counting fiasco.


bigmikedude's picture

Yeah sure...

Now that they've had time to crunch numbers and alter everything to satisfy...

I'm not expecting a different outcome.

I think the RNC and GOP are capable of pulling a live, perfectly healthy, unscathed rabbit out of a 600 degree currently burning wood stove with red hot embers 6 inches deep.

Ron Paul would be proclaimed the new winner of Maine, as per...

the KTLA 6:30pm Newscast here in Los Angeles...saw and heard the news itself.

x1k WOOHOO!!!!!!

It's not up on ktla.com yet.

"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

Hate to be a wet blanket, BUT

‎1. It's the SAME people who counted them the FIRST time.

2. Now that we KNOW the missing tallies, plus the Washington County vote, clearly give the state to Ron Paul, they have to pad Romney's lead to make up for that.

But Romney Is Squirming While The Santorum Squirts.

They are running scared.

This is great.


Oh. Watch the Vote 2012 Says Ron Paul won by a HUGE margin

Time to "recanvas" W'rever tf that means. Duhhh count it all, plus add (that's + for you idiots) Washington and 19 towns that you entered as ZERO. (that's -0- idiots). I think you will scronge up 194 votes. You think that this time no one is looking over your sholder? Romney is NDAA Scum. Obciously stealing the election from Ron Paul. No objections?Really? paybacks a mutha, listen up:!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gk8O3EPOtT4&feature=results_main&playnext=1&list=PLE9DF13E2CAE1C5D0

Each COUNTY should have a "fixed" result & the only

thing that should change is WASHINGTON COUNTY VOTES to be added & all the rest of the counties that the GOP reported as ZERO.


AND~~~~DOUG WEADE~~~needs to get on TV and exclaim that!! Why? He needs to make sure that it's understood that the GOP has too much anti-Paul fever going around and doing anything more than the stated would compromise this election, straw vote, or whatever you want to call it.

We cannot trust the GOP after what has happened to manipulate the vote. Weade needs to tell the GOP they are not trustworthy to do anything else above and beyond just simply adding in the votes not counted (plus Wa. County's).


Watch the vote has only verified a little over 2000 votes thus far...I just looked.
