Romney and RNC break GOP rule #11?

Rule #11a states:

(a) The Republican National Committee shall not, without the prior written and filed approval of all members of the Republican National Committee from
13 of 41
the state involved, contribute money or in-kind aid to any candidate for any public or party office except the nominee of the Republican Party or a candidate who is unopposed in the Republican primary after the filing deadline for that office. In those states where state law establishes a nonpartisan primary in which Republican candidates could participate, but in which the general election may not include a Republican candidate, the candidate endorsed by a convention held under the authority of the state Republican Party shall be recognized by the Republican National Committee as the Republican nominee

This from the Romney Site:

“Governor Romney’s strong performance and delegate count at this stage of the primary process has made him our party’s presumptive nominee,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “In order to maximize our efforts I have directed my staff at the RNC to open lines of communication with the Romney campaign.”

UPDATE: The RNC has made good on their word to help Romney and have done so extremely quickly. Check out the new video they made entitled A Tale of Two Leaders

Are they allowed to do that?

Wow, what a surprise!

The gop is embracing old Mitt-for-brains. This move is the next installment of the gO-bomb'ya re-election plan. Attempt to fast-track the R candidate who even now has very little chance of winning in Nov., tear the flipper apart in the debates and there you go four more nasty years. Did the neocons act illegally? Can they be brought up on charges for breaking their own rules or are they untouchables? We should find out......DR PAUL, all the way to the WH!!!

"Freedomless, Will work for Liberty"

What a crock of mitt

I hope that someone records the rerun of Greta where RNC Chair @Reince announces what he has done on NATIONAL TELEVISION. He is also asked by Greta, "What about Ron Paul and HIS SUPPORTERS?"

This is biG BIG BIG.
Americans have been CHEATED of their right to a fair legal election.

To arms! To arms! The Redcoats are coming!

Disenfranchised

My state hasn't even been given the chance to exercise the right to vote. The next POTUS will NOT be duly elected and therefor NOT my president, if, my candidate is shut out before the fair election process is complete. Ron Paul has not quit and the presumptive winner has NOT won.
This is OUTRAGEOUS.

I got a robo call

today begging money for Romney. I wish I had paid more attention to who is was from now.

this sounds like a big no no..

We need to forward this info to infowars and get one of those journalist to do a story on it.. and get the media to talk about this "scandal " the RNC will have to admit they are in the wrong and force Romney to give it back. ( I doubt they GOP will admit they are wrong) as far as Romney getting any punishment I doubt that as well.. I just hope the GOP knows we wont be backing their Douche bag Romney.

RNC Confirms Rmoney on Greta

Greta asks, "What about Ron Paul?".
RNC Chair, "We've been respectful to Paul."
I did not hear a solid answer.
I will watch the re-run 2nite. I had the volume down.
Was watching Greta only for the Gov Brewer segment.

I love this site

we feel compelled to give an explanation of why we were watching fox news.

I know. The same with all MSM,

but we must stay informed any way possible.

It would appear that breaking rules

Is common place among the romney campaign, the news media and the RNC. Oh what great leadership that would be! A person based on lies, elected in a rigged election...and they dont' follow rules.

Good job America.

If the RNC made a romney video

then its time for a lawsuit from Paul

Stop talking, take action! I

Stop talking, take action! I would sue if I could.
Who wants to sue first?
We should get a buncha people to sue all at once.

Fox & MSNBC: "joint fundraising committee" "informal takeover "

MSNBC: RNC Chairman Reince Priebus marked the transition Wednesday by proclaiming Romney the party's "presumptive nominee." Romney's campaign also appointed several senior staff members to work on an informal takeover of the committee's national infrastructure.

"We will ensure that our finance, political and communications teams are fully synchronized," Priebus said.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/47169231

Fox: Romney's campaign has already erected a joint fundraising committee with the RNC looking ahead to November. The alliance allows Romney's operation to tap into the GOP's 15 battleground state teams and their staff.

I also was curious...

I thought it seemed odd that it would be allowed. I thought I had heard that they (Romney and the GOP) were jointly raising funds. It sounds like some investigative journalism needs to be done. However, I am sure it would not be the first time they have broken their own rules. I mean... rules are only meant to keep everyone in line, except our "wise" overlords.

Just another person trying to change the world... :)

Good job whoever caught this.

Good job whoever caught this. Looks like a big violation to me.

Its been my feeling lately

That the push out of voters at these conventions is the one scandel from Romney we need to win.

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Idea

Challenge these guys at credentials in Tampa for breaking party rules. They all have to be Romney super delegates.

I'm not sure opening the lines of communication

Represents contributing money, but it sounds like they're well on their way to going all in.

Is this the rope they will be hung by?

By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.

What is the remedy when the

What is the remedy when the top brass violate the rules?

The top brass own the judges...

I don't know if I'm alone here or not but no legal action brought against the RNC has a chance in hell to be heard. Perhaps if Napolitano was still a judge in one of the aggrieved states...??? This is gonna have to be done the old fashioned way...majority and leadership fear of the people.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

They are definitely jumping

They are definitely jumping the gun on this one, it will probably have to be the Paul campaign to call them out on this! Get this out to them!

Corruption mostly STARTS AT THE TOP!! The GOP is as crooked

as they come.

Even more than that...they are dumb as rocks about who can win....take it from me...I have been watching them do it wrong for years....They have always had their heads up their butts.

They usually pick the DOPEY CANDIDATE....the more DOPEY...the more he represents the GOP!!! and I vote for these idiots!

Highly astute observation!

Highly astute observation! They are violating their own rules...again.

Point being, Mitt Romney is not, "unopposed." Ron Paul is still challenging him for the republican nomination.

"The Republican National Committee shall not...contribute money or in-kind aid to any candidate for any public or party office except...a candidate who is unopposed in the Republican primary..."

Mitt Romney is not unopposed. We need to call them out on this and take action.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Just lovely...

I'm just not suprised anymore...
