Maine fraud goes mainstream: Chicago Tribune (Chicago wrote the book on voter fraud) Update: Also in the LA times!

Another Mitt Romney win could be undone in Maine caucuses
By Michael A. Memoli | Chicago Tribune

Mitt Romney has already had a caucus victory in Iowa undone. Could his win in Maine be next?

On Saturday, the Maine Republican Party released the results of a presidential preference straw poll that had been conducted over several weeks at municipal caucuses. The party declared Romney the winner by 194 votes over Ron Paul.

The result was immediately called into question by supporters of the Texas congressman, and for good reason -- not all the votes were counted. The tally was made public even though most towns in Washington County had yet to caucus -- their meetings were postponed because of snow -- and will instead be held this weekend.

Furthermore, the results published by the Maine GOP had no votes recorded from another 200 cities and towns...

And in the LA times (nice pic of my hero to go with this release of the article):


Can you say viral?? These 2 papers are as mainstream as it gets. Many newspapers are in decline but these 2 are near the top of the shrinking pile.

RON PAUL 2012 * Restore America * Bring The Troops Home

"All the news thats fit to print" ~ New York Times

Screw the lame stream!...We have the internet...'the ole equalizer'...

Don't get used to it

Pipa and SOPA will re-emerge in new forms. We need Dr Paul to win THIS ELECTION!

Remember they waited in Iowa

on that story for awhile as well.

You betcha..

Waited till well after the "momentum bump" carried mittens through NH.


Chicago Tribune is big.

Once it is outed by a paper that large, it could very well hit the wire services. I wouldn't be surprised if a few others don't follow suit.

Someone other than me (I won't misuse my time writing to that waste of protoplasm) oughtta write to Charlie with a link demonstrating his unflattering 15 minutes of fame just expanded exponentially. This fact alone has me smirking while typing... : )


I like this quote

"Pressure has been building on the state GOP leadership to recount the votes. Chairman Charles Webster had told the Portland Press Herald on Wednesday that he did not want to do so until the state committee met next month.
That stance may be changing."

Sharing these articles is one of the BEST ways to increase the pressure. All the phone calls and local Maine media coverage have helped too, along with the many emails.

I agree

About both the quote and about sharing articles like these. With the LA times now weighing in as well, this story just hit the big time. Whether anything more comes of it, we shall see. To me, it appears that some big outlets have an eye on this Maine thing and if it flips RP's way, I'm 99% sure they'll cover that flip so as to vindicate themselves for nailing it with this article.



this guys good

Usually they have a link-out on the authors name. Not this time though. I'll have to google him instead. You're right though, I like his writing style.



/\ Thats disgusting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Good one!! lol.

A great find: thanks for posting

Will announce this everywhere: well done.


They did run it in the LA times.


Was linked out of Real Clear Politics

It was on their homepage at RCP. Left column. It has a copyright from the LA times so maybe they'll run it too.

Thanks for the encouragement.
