★ The Illinois GOP is playing games with us. Either they're lying or just incompetent Deadline to become a delegate did NOT passSubmitted by sovereignjanice on Sat, 05/26/2012 - 14:10
I just got word from a fellow Paul supporter in Illinois (Jack) who got through to his chairman. It seems that any chairmen who say that the deadline to become a delegate passed on May 22nd is either lying or misinformed. Here is part of Jack's message from a phone call he got yesterday (May 25th) and see for yourself:
"He said he would find out Tuesday if there were any slots available.. Just from his comments though, it sounded like there were not only alternate slots available, but delegate slots as well.
He then asked me a few questions, like why I recently became active.. I said I just am so upset at the President and that Republicans need to kick him out of the White House in November. I just couldn't bring myself to start spouting positive things about Romney! lol. THEN, Mr. Durante asked, "Alright, you're not a rabble-rouser or a nutcase or anything right?" haha! I can only assume that was slang for "Ron Paul supporter." I of course answered "No" and said I'm very easy going and diminutive.
I will let you know if/when I hear anything back Tuesday."
If you want to become a delegate in Illinois or know someone who does, please feel free to leave a comment or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with what county you live in (if cook county please add your township or ward) and I'll do by best to show you how to do it.
About 8 people have taken the time to tell me that they were successful in becoming delegates from my help and hopefully there are more who just didn't get back to me, but every single one counts.
