I don't know if Wead is correct

At the national convention the validity of Louisiana's caucus was still in question. In a stunning coincidence, many delegates were flown home before the nomination process to prepare for Hurricane Gustav..... on John McCain's dime! Was that actually a penalty for breaking caucus rules?
