Two Previous Court Rulings Show Bound Delegates Free to Vote Their ConscienceSubmitted by ralph hornsby on Wed, 06/06/2012 - 00:30
None of the supposedly "bound delegates" are required to actually vote for a specific candidate, regardless of what State law says. All are free to vote their conscience on the first round of voting... and Ron Paul has managed to put a lot of his supporters in slots that are nominally "bound" to Romney. There is no way to know how many of these he has accumulated to date, and no way to know if the delegates will, en masse, follow this path and vote for Paul during the first round of voting. It's a wait and see kind of thing at the moment.
