More dirty tricks from the GOP.Submitted by cdmsatisfied on Sat, 05/19/2012 - 13:43
I'm at the Columbus civic as an alternate to the GA state GOP convention. Our county had 1 delegate not show up, the six alternates that showed up for our county are all RP supporters. Our county, lead by the chair, voted to not fill the seat. It's happening in other counties as well. They keep digging their hole deeper and deeper.
One of our alternates sought the counsell of an attorney friend of his. After reading over the rules, it was found that it was within their right to leave the seat open. Just to be clear, this was not a national delegate position, but a delegate position to the state convention. We've thought about small claims court, but were advised that we could spend time and money dragging them through the mud, only to eventually lose, as no rules were broken, handing them a victory they could tout as "justice" being served.
The moral of the story. They have no morals. Don't for a second think they will do the "right" thing. Do not give them an inch.
Strategy and beliefs are nothing without numbers when dirty tactics like this are allowed.
