Here is an updated analysis from Frankie Brown
A list of rules that we know were violated:
- Delegates of the convention attempted to nominate people from the floor yet were summarily ignored without vote by the chairman.
- The Athens Clarke County precinct delegates were disenfranchised (by Matt Brewster, Chairman) and the county convention was closed without majority and without the proper respect to the procedural process as outlined in our party rules and Robert’s Rules of Order.
- The initial “all in favor” request did not give a chance for the “ayes” and the “nays” to have a separate chance to vote. Instead, the chairman called for both “ayes” and “nays” to be voiced at the same time.
- The count of the “ayes” versus the “nays” was inaccurate. According to our count, 25 of the 37 people in attendance were Ron Paul supporters, and did not vote “aye” when a voice vote was called for.
