National GOP Changes Rules on Maine’s Delegation

Portland, Maine (PRWEB) August 15, 2012

The RNC Committee on Contests found no evidence to support the contest against the Maine Delegation on Friday, yet failed to issue a ruling. Instead, they changed their own rules, which previously required a ruling, in order to grant the contestants a second test to retry their challenge.

“The RNC Committee on Contests could not find any evidence of fraud,” said Mark Willis, the incoming National Committeeman for Maine who holds a Doctor of Law Degree from George Mason University.

“According to their own rules, the RNC was obligated to recommend that the Maine delegates be certified,” Wilis added. ”Instead, the Committee on Contests had to create new rules to give the challengers a second chance. Such a decision is unprecedented, violates party rules and violates the due process rights of the duly elected Maine delegation. In a court of law, this challenge would have already been thrown out and dismissed.”

“It really makes me doubt the integrity of the process at the RNC,” added John Logan Jones, a National Delegate and the Republican candidate for State Representative in Falmouth. “The burden of proof is on the contestants and they failed to meet that burden. The RNC should have left it at that and certified Maine’s delegation. Instead they are reaching over backwards, changing their own rules to accommodate the Mitt Romney Campaign.”

“Over 2500 duly elected Maine Republican delegates went to Augusta and we had a democratic election,” added Ashley Ryan, incoming National Committeewoman for Maine. “The RNC and the Mitt Romney Campaign cannot invalidate Maine’s voice simply because they didn't like the outcome.”

Is there contact info to that committee?

If these people like Jan

If these people like Jan Staples and Charlie Webster call themselves Christians, then they better be expelled from their church. But I highly doubt even that will happen. Society has gone so evil and it can get away with anything. It sickens me to be human. I wish I were a mutant like in the X-men. I'd show them what real power is.

Romney MUST be scared of someting!!!

It's plain to me... IMHO, I really believe Romney and his camp must be worried about a possible Ron Paul nomination from the floor to go to these lengths to deny Ron Paul's delegates their HONESTLY HARD WON slots.

Everything the RNC is now doing is against Ron Paul Delegates...

When you are breaking your own party's rules to forge an outcome in defiance of the Ron Paul delegate slates... that's pretty damning evidence they are VERY concerned about something big enough happening to do some damage to the "good ol' boys network"....

Heck, I wonder if enough delegates would ACTUALLY vote for Ron Paul to take the nomination if they do hear him speak.

Imagine what the news articles would read. People all across the country would be in a tizzy thinking that Romney already had the nomination bc they had no clue how the nomination actually worked.

I would laugh my ass off to see how that one would be spun. Then Ron Paul could tell Paul "socialist communist douche bag" Ryan that his VP services are NO longer needed.

We REALLY NEED a Ron Paul... he's the only 1 to stop a military attack from within our country on us from either our own troops or government approved "peace keepers" from Nato and the UN. Otherwise, all out bloodshed! Not pretty.

Really hope, really PRAY that the delegates the go to the convention are INTELLIGENT enough to VOTE for Ron Paul!!! And i'm talking about those Romney delegates pulling the lever for Ron Paul.

To Help Maine Duly Elected Delegates. . .

. . .what can WE do?

This is outrageous and undeniably WRONG.

So - what is it WE The People can do to help get them seated?

Well...

I think the obvious thing we ALL can do is ensure that ALL the Delegates are in Tampa; By Plane, Train, and/or Automobile!

There is no reason every one on this site (and everyone everywhere else) can't come up with enough dough to get All our Delegates to that City. Just having them there is the most Important Part!

WE HAVE ONE WEEK LEFT.

In order for movements to succeed the PEOPLE must MOVE!!!!!!!!!

What did you expect, roses?

The RNC is the Establishment's flip side of the DNC. One side of the coin is DNC the other is RNC but they are the SAME coin. Key word(s) = Establishment, political power elite, & military-industrial-banking-MSM-Wall Street complex, it's all the same profiteers playing. They will kill to maintain the status quo. The convention will be manipulated by the RNC to insure that Ron Paul's name is never mentioned on the dais. His election could unravel all their schemes and future plans.

The only possibilities of Ron Paul having a shot at the nomination is 1) the Lawyer's for Ron Paul lawsuit is successful and it forces an open convention, 2) a mass demonstration of noisy, surly, but polite, Ron Paul delegates on the floor demanding Ron Paul be put in nomination or they'll keep it up until he is nominated, 3) or as counselor Gilbert claims in the video, Romney will be arrested if he shows up at the convention, (http://electionfraudremedy.com/). Too good to be true.

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.

Election Fraud

I am friends with a liberal Democrat who supports Obama. He has been telling me for a long time that although Republicans (which I have been for 36 years) complain about Democrats committing election fraud, that it is the Republicans that commit election fraud way more than Democrats. I am starting to believe him. How can we be angry with the Democrats of doing this against their opposing party (Republicans) when Republicans do this to their own? This is a sickening thing that is going on and I demand that RICO charges be brought against all involved. I know that Lawyers for Ron Paul have discussed doing this, but when? I say everyone that can get to Tampa, get there. Let us surround the convention and show our numbers. Let us make this larger than any march on Washington has ever done. Never give up, never surrender.

Capital crimes

Here is the remedy, file RICO suits, seek enforcement with force

http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/suing-government-negl...

RICO charges against all of them for public fraud and defiling the rule of law, ITS A CLOSED SHUT CASE OF GRAND LARCENY.

First degree fraud with intent to cause duress, with prejudice.

The GOP is a Spreading Cancer!

They are rotten to the core. I remember some politican saying the GOP will make sure that Ron Paul is not the nominee. He obviously, knew to what extent and the power they possess to prevent the next Thomas Jefferson of our era.

We have to start from our local area, then to the state level, and then finally nationally taking positions in their GOP.

The politicans on both sides of the isle no longer represent us or the Constitution.

It's hard...

Hard to find evidence of fraud when your eyes are closed and your fingers are in your ears. Why is the organization which is committing fraud allowed to make rulings saying there is no fraud?

The willis guy was saying

The Willis guy was saying they found no evidence of fraud from the RP slate and went on to say the RNC is violating rules in trying to get the Romney slate another chance to be certified.

or at least that is how I read it... not to mention the governor and others within the state RNC are backing up the RP supporters on this.

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

Sorry

The article seemed a bit unclear to me on who was being talked about in that case.

Why don't they just change

Why don't they just change the rules and appoint Romney as the president?

They might...

...if there is any possibility that Ron Paul will get more than 10 or 20 votes.

These people

are going to try everything they can, Lie cheat and steal, They will go as far as we let them.

if you want to get technical,

if you want to get technical, allowing them to continue this behavior is a form of encouragement to continue said behavior, so...

Agreed!

Knowingly turning a blind eye to corruption makes you complicit!!

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

Its too late to change the rules, they cannot and they won't!!

File a RICO suit in the courts against the corrupt RNC chairmen who have bent over backwards to try to keep violating their own rules.

http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/suing-government-negl...

This isn't hop scotch, it is a national election. Force them to follow their own rules and hold them liable for fraud when they don't!

*RICO statutes violated:

+ Criminal Negligence
+ Unmet promise of Due Process
+ Filing of malicious false perjury affidavits they cannot enforce!
+ Intent to interfere with the "committee's business" who decided the case by Statutory State Law
+ Undue violations of privacy

Sue the RNC committee board for all the above and you have a slam-dunk case! Need only bring video of the intimidation done, forgeries done, fraudulent affidavits & violations. Bring your own parliamentarian and enforce the law.
