Romney Campaign & Mass. G.O.P. Disqualifies Ron Paul Delegates For Not Signing (Illegal?) AffidavitSubmitted by Bobsama on Mon, 06/25/2012 - 11:22
An affidavit is never mentioned in the Republican Party’s rules for selecting delegates and has never been required of delegates in the past, GOP critics say. Suspicions are steep this year because Kenney and the others are supporters of Ron Paul, the libertarian candidate whose quixotic campaign for president culminated in an effort to take over state caucuses nationwide. The delegates must vote for Romney, based on his strong primary win in Massachusetts, but Paul’s supporters hope to use the convention to draw attention to his agenda, including auditing the Federal Reserve and requiring wars to be declared by Congress.

I have a feeling all these "disqualified" delegates will be joining Lawyers for Ron Paul, if they haven't already. As stated by the surprisingly neutral author, affidavits are not mentioned in state GOP rules.
Anyways, if you want to express your shock or dissatisfaction, I urge civility! You can contact Chairman McGrathed (of MA GOP's Allocation Committee) at firstname.lastname@example.org or the MA GOP directly at 617-523-5005. Remember; do unto others as you would have them do unto you. By making a fool of yourself, you discredit our movement for Liberty. We advocate freedom because we practice self-restraint (and trust others to do the same).
