THis post got lost in the body of the thread, but it is important
"The LAGOP executive committee again submitted false information in an attempt to mislead their fellow Republicans," said Charlie Davis, who led the Paul campaign in Louisiana. "I'm not really surprised by the preliminary ruling and I'm looking forward to finally presenting our case in Tampa. The wheels of justice move slow and I remain hopeful that when all the facts are presented the truth will win
So, how are the other states doing.
Came home from a terrible day and 2 funerals to find this in my mailbox. It was a letter from Dore saying, "see, we told you we didn't do anything wrong." They actually assigned delegates that didn't even run in the election. Sorry, that is wrong. I am posting the letter, followed by the Opinion.

RNC Ruling Favors State Party Delegate Slate
On Friday, August 10, the RNC Committee on Contests issued a ruling in favor of seating the national convention delegation elected and certified by the Republican Party of Louisiana. “The Committee recommends that the contested delegates and alternates certified by the Republican Party of Louisiana be credentialed and seated for the 2012 Republican National Convention,” read the Contest Report.
On July 28, the leaders of the Louisiana Ron Paul Campaign filed a Notice of Contest with the RNC seeking to unseat the entire delegation elected and certified by the LAGOP. According to the Contest Committee, the Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Louisiana acted appropriately.
"This decision simply confirms what we've been saying from the beginning...that we followed the rules," stated LAGOP Executive Director Jason Dore. Following the decision, the LAGOP has moved its focus towards the Republican National Convention later this month and the November elections.
“After yesterday’s ruling and today's announcement of Paul Ryan, we are ready to move forward with electing the Romney-Ryan team and defeating Obama in November,” said LAGOP Chairman Roger Villere Jr. “We must work together in order to make sure that Obama is a one-term president.”
