Near Sweep for Ron Paul in Massachusetts

We just swept MA district 7, getting the 3 delegates and 3 alternates.

And I heard the same about districts 2, 3 and 5.

We might just sweep this whole state -- and then some.

UPDATE: regarding the sticker issue, just wanted to add that they were handing those out inside the building at district 7 as well. Barring that, the rest of the meeting ran smoothly and without controversy.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts.

Delegates

can abstain on the first round, they are bound to mitt but can refuse to vote...legally. After that they can vote their conscience and that's when the mitt hits the fan.

The Media Blackout Is Finally Backfiring

The Romney supporters have relaxed, and the Santorum/Gingrich supporters have given-up. The time has come for Paulers to dominate the state conventions. Will you all please join me in a well-deserved "Muahahahahaha"!

!!MUAHHAHAHA!!!

!!MUAHHAHAHA!!!

Muahahahahahahahaha!

Ah ah aha ah Muahahahaha!

Was Massachusetts Primary

Was Massachusetts Primary which Goldman Sachs puppet won a beauty contest only & had no bearing on delegate assignments?

Or is it that on first Tampa ballot these delegates are still bound to Romney, yet in reality they happen to be Paul people?

What's going on, getting mighty confused.

Bound for first call.

Very well explained in some my previous comments

OK, thx! Certainly things

OK, thx! Certainly things seem like will be very chaotic and fluid in Tampa, safe to predict it will be like a war. Something that should be remembered 100 years from now.

I for one want to see BBC News scumbags and CNN scumbags forced to show wild/crazy "President Paul, President Paul" chanting from convention floor in Tampa!

I was at D8 in Braintree...

Our 3 delegates lost from a range of 6-11 with 9 provisional ballots to be decided on within ten days.

fortune favors the bold

Anyone from District 9?

.

0/3 (possibly 1/3 with provisionals)

The Romney slate had stickers and bussed people in. If we win one, it will be by beating a Sheriff.

District 8 got 0/3, but if

District 8 got 0/3, but if the provisional ballots are included in the final count, we could and probably would win 2/3 spots. Hopefully we'll know more by Monday.

As I understand it

provisional ballots are for folks who actually live in the district but are not on the registered R list of voters in that district for whatever reason. Their residence is verified and their vote is counted.

Their vote is not counted

Their vote is not counted unless it matters (and only after they verify that the person was properly registered).

STICKERS RULES

http://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/elestkr/stkridx.htm

Says stickers cant be handed within 150' of polling place. This rule was clearly violated in district 1. There was video recording. The stickers were handed out inside the voting room and later a guy was walking the isles handing them out again. Also we need to make sure those stickers qualified the requirements described in the rules!

Stickers in District 6 also

What was even more interesting is that quite a few ballots used the stickers, but some would cross out one or two of the Romney delegates and write in an RP delegate. So the Ballot would have One Romney Delegate and two RP.

Its those provisional ballots that are really bothering me.

That is what they did in District 8

They were handing them out right inside the door.
Someone during the meeting made a motion that stickers were allowed and this was not challenged.
Can this still be brought up and challenged?

Stickers

Would you please what these stickers are all about. Were they used as a voting tool for the Comney campaign.

Stickers

They had Romney's delegates and alternates on them ( reminds me of your self address sticking labels you put on your letters that you mail) they peel off and stick on rather that hand writing the names on the ballot of your choice.
I also believe these stickers fooled some people and they simply and ignorantly put them on their ballot.

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Stickers

The stickers ad 3 delegate names on them clearly marked as Romney's "Official" delegate slate. They were to facilitate voting for his group of 3.

Although I am not sure of this, I think that the stickers were legal. A caucus held by the private GOP party is not a polling place. When candidates run "Sticker campaigns" they need to stay 150' away just like signs or handouts.

At the meeting today, everything for all candidates was being handed out inside the building. I am relatively certain this is allowed.

MA RP Supporters Are Great!

Thx. In Mittens Yard!

Latest count?

What's the latest count? This is what I'm seeing:

D1 2/3 (?)
D2 3/3
D3 3/3
D4 0/3 (Under challenge due to use of stickers?)
D5 3/3
D6 2/3 (possibly 3/3 with provisionals)
D7 3/3
D8 0/3 (Yet to report?)
D9 0/3 (Yet to report?)
