Ron Paul Supporters Allege Fraud as Arizona Republican Convention is Shut Down

[Policy Mic] “Someone on the stage made a motion to adjourn. People started screaming ‘Nay.’ The convention was declared over. They took away the microphones and began turning off the lights.”

Such were the frantic proceedings at Saturday’s Arizona Republican State Convention, in the words of one shaken delegate from Scottsdale, Arizona. Nearly 1,000 Republicans gathered at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix to elect the state’s slate of delegates and alternates to the Republican National Convention.

Thanks to exclusive interviews conducted by Public Appeal, a clear picture is finally emerging of what transpired at yesterday’s convention. Ron Paul delegates came out in force and had a sizable presence on the convention floor. Nevertheless, the meeting descended into chaos on various occasions, amidst allegations of election fraud and disenfranchisement.

Several Ron Paul-supporting alternate delegates complained that the organizers refused to seat them as delegates even though numerous vacancies existed – largely due to Romney delegates who started trickling out of the convention in the early afternoon.

the official tally from the establishment gives RP only 3 delegates. 20+ for Romney.

WTF!! this is BS

Update: May 16, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT Arizona releases its 29 delegate names. Remember it took them three days after locking those names up. 26 for Romney and 3 for Paul. What is most stunning about this announcement is that on Saturday, Paul supporters had confirmed 11 of 18 delegates were Paul's. What happened over the past 3 days?

They are now counting the votes

As of 1:30 p.m. today, the AZ GOP has begun counting the votes. They have only allowed two witnesses in the room as they are counted.

It is now past midnight.

Results please? Meltdown in the ministries of truth! Didn't Doug Wead already say we won Arizona? The ballots were "in storage", safely locked up. We believe ya.

Please tell me one of the

Please tell me one of the witnesses is a Ron Paul supporter?

"If you put a gun to my head and said vote Romney/Gingrich/Santorum...I would say pull the trigger!"

Ugh !

GOP operatives running the whole show, God speed to the two Ron Paul souls in that nest of vipers.

Just another breach of protocol and rules as the voting is to be observed in a fashion as to provide absolutely no doubt of the count.

video clip of end of meeting in AZ

I saw this clip posted in a comment in an AZ online article. It shows the last few minutes of Josh's speech. As far as I can tell, he did not get booed off the stage. Not all that dramatic.

NOT, as long as you post the link as well, giving credit to the author.

Yes it is

Anymore than two or three paragraphs is a violation. The DP has already been sued for it in the past.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Time to withdraw those absurd copyright laws, I suggest.
All along with the other nonsense.
Ron Paul 2012!

I'm confused

Between Doug Wead's blog post about Arizona and this article about the same, I am left utterly confused.

I was at the Arizona

I was at the Arizona convention for a while and watched the end of it on ustream. Perhaps Doug Wead knows something I don't know, but the article here is more in line with what I witnessed.

Great article!!

The best and clearest I've read yet covering the AZ convention. How can it be possible that there are STILL no results released? How on earth can anyone claim this is a legitimate process when results are not announced at the convention? Isn't that its purpose and rationale?

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.
