I was invited to be a "Special Guest of the California Delegation"Submitted by Bugs in the machine on Mon, 07/16/2012 - 21:05
I received the following email today, and am somewhat suspicious. I wrote the folks mentioned and also looked up the Executive Director, and she does appear to be legit, and she responded saying this is legit. They didn't exactly make it clear what I'll be doing to "help nominate Mitt Romney", but if this means I get to vote as a delegate, I'm totally in!
We are pleased to personally invite you to apply for an exclusive and very limited opportunity to be a Special Guest of the California Delegation to the 2012 Republican National Convention.
The 2012 Republican National Convention, will be held August 27-30, 2012 in Tampa, Florida. California has the great honor of hosting the largest Delegation to travel to Florida to help nominate Governor Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States and we are honored to invite you to be a part of this historic event.
Special Guests will enjoy the privileges of participating with the California Delegation and traveling with the Delegation to special meetings, receptions and events - as well as receiving one Guest Credential to the Convention sessions held every evening.
Special Guests of the California Delegation will be assessed a mandatory one-time participation fee of $900 to be paid by FRIDAY, JULY 20, 2012. The participation fee is required to help cover the costs associated with the logistics for the delegation – for example, ground transportation, parties, official events and administrative costs. This fee will not cover your travel to and from Tampa or your lodging expenses. More details on the payment are found on the attached Special Guest Application Form.
Paid Special Guests are also invited to participate in our California Orientation Meeting scheduled for Saturday, July 28th in Burbank California where the official California Delegation schedule will be announced along with other important convention details.
