Action item of the day: Call the RNC and ask them why they are violating Rule 11

If you haven't watched Ben Swann's video about Rule 11, watch it first before calling the RNC:

Then call the Republican National Committee and them why they are violating Rule 11 by giving money or in-kind aid to Romney and his campaign-- after all, Romney is still not the nominee and he is not unopposed.

Also, inquire about Rule 38 which states, "No delegate or alternate delegate shall be bound by any attempt of any State or Congressional district to impose the 'Unit Rule"

Here is their phone # 202 863 8500 If you get the menu system, press # 1, and leave a message, like I did. I will update this message if they call me back.

Also, see my previous post when any Republican organization call you and asks for money:

It's not my place

It's not my place to complain to the GOP. I'm not a member. I'm only registered to vote Republican. I havn't paid membership dues to the GOP since I resigned my membership in 1996 and began sending my annual dues to the Libertarian party instead. Besides, if you're not a supporting member of the GOP they don't give a dead rat what you think anyway.

I emailed counsel with this (note the lack of Ron Paulness)

What do you think will happen when people can actually see it in google news? What do you think Obama will do? Do you think he'll mention it now, or AFTER Romney is nominated? Can you see the full page ads O'bama will run saying "Romney cheated and the party did too", backed by irrefutable videotape and lots of it? Use some common sense guys. Drop Priebus like he's hot. A scandal like this will go beyond the presidency, I promise you. We won't be able to field a candidate without their provenance being questioned. Jesus, Romney was a shoo-in anyway, why stir the hornet's nest?

Great idea!

An action of the day, a sort of to do list, might be a great idea for the DP community to accomplish simple tasks like this one where we can concentrate our efforts. The Activism page is pretty busy and things can get lost. Just a suggestion...

I love the suggestion:-)

You are right too many times this site gets crazy ADD, a daily to-list to focus and concentrate our efforts would be really productive.

Called and...

told them that I'm a Delegate to the RNC and I'm very concerned about the apparent breaking of Rule #11. Jeff H. (young man) took my "complaint", and told me that he'd enter it into the "database" which the Chairman will review at the end of the day.

I didn't ask about #38 because I am (and was elected) PLEDGED to Ron Paul!!

Never asked for my name or State Delegation info, etc.

Make the CALL!

call... and press 1 to speak with a real person (I got a young man who is collecting all of the data from these calls).

I introduced myself and spoke to them from a team building perspective. I told them that the GOP "we" will not win without the support of Ron Paul and/or his followers. I told the young man on the phone "We must undo this violation of rule 11 for this is completely tearing apart our republican base." I moved on to give examples of seasoned GOP'ers that are siding with Ron Paul because of this violation. I also witnessed to him my personal shock at the HUGE rallies for Dr. Ron Paul.

He told me that he is gathering all of the information from these phone calls and will be presenting them to the RNC Chair at the end of the Day.

So... please make the call today... be your self... be polite... be FIRM.

Calling now.....

Way to represent the revolution! A much needed reminder in times like these when such corruption makes it very easy for our emotions to take over when we need to remain calm and collected :-)

Last straw for my mother!

She is a die-hard Republican and very active locally but will vote for "anyone but Obama." I've been sending her info about RP here and there and this latest report about the RNC giving money to Romney was the last straw for her I guess. She is livid and will be writing letters to media and the RNC.
This issue is driving main-stream Republicans to help defend Ron Paul's right to campaign! No one wants to be railroaded!
Reach out once again to your die-hard Republican neocons using this issue and the video about it from Ben Swann. Laws are being broken and that is enough to finally push people to act.

You can also ask their legal dept @ 7 for a response

Send a message to counsel@gop.com Ask them how can they violate their own rules.

I called several times

The mailbox is full and cannot accept any other messages. Attempts to press 0 or other menu options returns "invalid key".

Nice post

Why isn't this listed under "activism"?

From Mittens' site:

Already hit your limit? If you’ve given the maximum of $2,500 for the primary and $2,500 for the general election to Romney for President, you can still give to the Romney Victory fund, our joint fundraising committee with the Republican National Committee.

Contributions to Romney Victory, Inc. (“RV”) are not tax deductible for federal income tax purposes. RV is a joint fundraising committee composed of Romney for President, Inc. (“RFP”), the Republican National Committee (“RNC”), and the official Republican Parties in four states (the Idaho Republican Party, the Massachusetts Republican Party, the Oklahoma Leadership Council, and the Vermont Republican Federal Election Committee) the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the National Republican Congressional Committee. Proceeds shall be allocated by the following formula

1.Individuals and non-multicandidate PACs - The first $2,500 will go to RFP’s primary account. The next $2,500 will go to RFP’s general account. The next $30,800 will go to the RNC. The remaining amount will be split evenly among the federal accounts of the Republican Parties of Idaho, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, and Vermont, up to a maximum of $10,000 per committee.
2.Multicandidate PACs - The first $5,000 will go to RFP’s primary account. The next $5,000 will go to RFP’s general account. The next $15,000 will go to the RNC. The remaining amount will be split evenly among the federal accounts of the Republican Parties of Idaho, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, and Vermont, up to a maximum of $5,000 per committee.

Notwithstanding this allocation formula, a contributor may designate a contribution for a specific participant or participants. In addition, the allocation formula may change if any contribution would exceed applicable contribution limits. Contributions from corporations, labor unions, federal contractors, and foreign nationals are prohibited. Federal law requires us to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation, and name of employer of each contributor whose contributions aggregate in excess of $200 in a calendar year (RNC and state parties) or election cycle (RFP).

Paid for by Romney Victory, Inc., a joint fundraising committee authorized by and composed of Romney for President, Inc., the Republican National Committee, the Idaho Republican Party, the Massachusetts Republican Party, the Oklahoma Leadership Council, the Vermont Republican Federal Election Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the National Republican Congressional Committee.
