Dodge County Convention NebraskaSubmitted by candance on Wed, 06/06/2012 - 21:53
The Dodge County convention was held tonight.
13 people filed to be delegates to the county convention. We had
8 Ron Paul delegates so we had the majority.
The first business by the chairman was to ask the delegates if
they wanted to seat everyone in attendance as county delegates..The GOP had the room packed, I would guess there was around 90 people there.
The delegates voted 9-4 NOT to seat everyone as delegates. Then the chairman proceeded to inform the 90 some people in attendance they could vote for delegates to the state convention !!!!
We objected, which she promptly denied. We proceeded to make objections so they conferred with the so call rules committee that I did not even
know existed in the Dodge County GOP as we are a pretty small group.
They came back and stated the objection was denied which we again objected as it was not in accordance with the NE GOP rules. They proceeded through our objections. I made a motion to replace the chairman, it was seconded and the chairman informed us she denied
the motion. One of our delegates stood up to mike and informed the group of the rules violations and we voted for a 10 min. recess. Which we all then went out to the parking lot and held our own convention.
We had someone from the NE Ron Paul campaign on the line the whole time and the whole proceedings was recorded.
The convention will be contested in court.
