The Mitt Romney and Ron Paul Campaigns Have Filed a Complaint - FINALLY!

Romney and Paul allege 'dirty tricks' by Santorum supporters

The campaigns of Mitt Romney and Ron Paul have filed a complaint alleging "serious and prejudicial misconduct" by supporters of rival Rick Santorum at the March 17 Missouri caucus that they say amounted to "voter suppression."

The complaint, filed with the state Republican party and several caucus officials and dated Monday, demands that the state party refuse to recognize the delegates from Jefferson County, where the campaigns say the improprieties took place.

I know some of the details

I know some of the details of this and I will not get into them here. What I will say is that this is a good thing.

The level of misconduct at the Jefferson County Caucus absolutely rises to the level of a blanket challenge of the caucus.

As far as any comments that "they" (the Santorum supporters) are doing to "us" what we do to "them", no Ron Paul supporter left the caucus premisis (stole) critical caucus documents (that happened in St. Charles County four years ago). No Ron Paul supporter refused to accept nominations for Chairman. No Ron Paul supporter made participants state who they supported in order to participate.

That is all I will say right now.

I know the details as well

Something very similar was attempted in our caucus.

Why won't Paul campaign file against Romney for his dirty deeds?

Now that would be the longest lawsuit. If you are really interested in a level playing field to elect a conservative, then Romney is the target.

This is like the US working and funding al qaeda in libya to overthrow qaddafi and in syria to overthrow assad and in afghanistan to overthrow russia. all this colluding with the most wicked forces led to more and more terrorism and islamists. Meaning, any conversation with Romney has blowbacks.

Brent "That is all I will say right now." for we who can read

...between the lines thats quite good enough
Bless all of you who are in the vanguard of this R3volution !

Good article

If you go to Stltoday.com you can find a goo article exposing that santorum people purposely dragged it on by hijacking the roll call sheet to make people fed up and leave so they could have the number of people at the caucus to their liking.

What's the difference

This is the same tactics I have witnessed Paul supporters use on many occasions. We are just using your tactics against you. How does it feel?

It's "perspire" in your camp isn't it?

Perspirervest....Let's play "Whack-a-mole"!!

Thanx,

You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

Are you sure?

if so, then why does paul have the least number of delegates by far? and, why is there a lawsuit with romney of all people? that loverboy is the most dark and vile of them all - he can never play by the rules and covertly backstabs.

You witnessed on many occasions?

I would like to hear your eyewitness accounts from the many occasions you claim to have witnessed.

Notice!!!!!

Notice he is admitting guilt.
Notice how he tries to justify his crime by pointing to the alleged crimes of others.
He is likely a Neo Con or Judeo Christian or some other belief system devoid of moral absolutes.

Welcome to the Daily Paul...I sincerely hope that by visiting here you'll come to know our candidate's positions better, and appreciate our efforts to elect Ron Paul president!

We follow the rules

whereas Sanitorium hacks brazenly broke them. If you guys can't win fair and square, you'll attempt to find some other way.

follow the rules?

But, according to Pravda Sivoidne (USA Today) we EXPLOiT the rules.

I was there

a group of santorum supporters (republican central committe) and their lackies had a agenda to get their chair in there and when we got ours in there instead, they threw a temper tantrum. They tried to drag out caucus until the building closed so no one could get delegates. I was there for like 10 hours just like most everyone else. The committe hijacked the roll call sheet an then pushed a motion to call for a roll call vote which made 400 ppl have to sign in again. Lucky we had our own resources. This took over two hours. The temporary chair tried not to read the call to arms which had details about unbound delegates. They tried to motion new rollcalls everytime someone left and made false accusations that people were leaving and coming back inside the building. Tried to adjourn caucus few times. Wouldnt allow video until we took the chair. One of the Most disgusting group of individual I've ever encountered. Please daily Paul find out if this info harms the complaint file and if it does take this post down immediately

Anyone have or know where I

Anyone have or know where I could find a copy of the complaint?

it SHOULD be sent to you from ...

"...the state Republican party..."

"The complaint, filed with the state Republican party and several caucus officials and dated Monday,..."

you need to word a request in a professional manner
post a cc here and send it to them
then we ALL wait for reply

if there is NONE as I suspect will be
every one of us sends another cc of the SAME request

how many ccs will they ignore?

after five days we post the whole stroy from first request to last group email on every site thread we can find!

and SOMEONE makes a video we can promote and send to msm sites like drudge & rense

unified action guys
let one of us try the proper first step
when its ignored we all become spartacuses

keep showing UNITY and NUMBERS

I think

it's good that Romney's a part of the suit. Now that he's seeing Santorum as a legitimate threat to his nomination, along with Romney's unlimited funds, I'm sure we won't get the runaround we otherwise would have received had it been the Paul campaign alone in this battle. That is of course, barring that Romney's people don't make some backroom deal with the GOP in order to halt Dr. Paul's advancement in the delegate acquisition.

Of course romney will and has already made backroom deals to

stop Paul and hassle him and discredit him. RP supporters have a lot of trust in this shady character.

Romney is up to more establishment tricks

Romney is establishment who does most of the gop voting tracking and rules, so I'm sure noone screwed Romney unless he wanted it that way in order to backstab someone. Romney is same as media which is same as gop.

Any collusion with Romney, like this lawsuit, is very, very bad. More talk of an alliance.

It is Romney that has most of the dirty work against all gop rivals that came in the race, in 08, and those that ended up not coming in the race.

Voter suppression is Romney's trick.

Somebody Call For a Quorum

If too many delegates leave, the quorum is lost, and no business can be conducted.

How does this differ from what the Ron Paul supporters did elsewhere?

Outlasting the opposition is a legitimate tactic, isn't it?

I wish the story said what rules were broken.

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

interesting . . .

watching and waiting to see what will happen--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Romey's grassroots...

organization is used to getting screwed right? I mean, they had a few states where many of the results happened to just disappear.. or others where the votes happened to get changed in route to the state GOP, or other caucuses where they're blatantly and illegally being excluded.... oh, wait thats our guy.

Their motto is "Dont Tread On Me"...

Do you think the MSM would have bothered

to cover this, if Romney's people weren't listed as a plaintiff in this suit? And if they would have bothered to cover it at all, with only Paul's people as the plaintiff, imagine the cry baby, negative spin the story would then have!

No, it was a smart move on our guys' part. Better chance of winning the suit with the "Romney" brand attached to it, than the "crazy and frivolous" Paul name alone.

Notice no mention of Gingrich's delegates

They were treated just as badly by Santorum's conspirators also, but since they're so few, and so knowing that he's gonna lose; why bother, eh?

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

With Newt's campaign running out of money, they

probably couldn't come up with their third of the retainer.

Another thought, would Gingrich throw his support to Santorum instead of Romney? That could also be a factor.
