GOP nomination could hinge on court rulingSubmitted by LynnDear on Wed, 06/20/2012 - 23:11
Really, A fair and honest story? WOW
Challenging the GOP and the 'mainstream' media's current stance that certain delegates are “bound” to vote for Romney, since he won in certain states, those delegates are asking the courts to revisit a 2007 ruling by the RNC itself that concluded there are no such thing as bound delegates.
Adding even more ironic twist is the fact that the ruling was spurred on by an '08 McCain delegate in Utah that wanted to switch to Romney and attorneys for the RNC, based on GOP election law, revealed that any delegate can vote for whomever they choose when reaching the RNC.
Being that most of the media's teleprompter programmers have been attempting to conceal the law, many Romney delegates and a few Santorum and Gingrich delegates are completely unaware of the fact that they don't actually have to vote for the winner of their state at the RNC, at all.
In addition to the media silence, many states GOP parties, according to the suit, attended to various nefarious activities throughout the process, including forcing delegates to sign affidavits saying they'd vote for Romney, while others were officially announcing that delegates are required to vote for anyone other than Ron Paul, among other similar, illegal activities.
There was even a recent 'official' assault and arrest of a handicapped delegate in Louisiana that was being illegally forced to leave the caucus and simply stood his ground and refused to follow unruly orders.
