CNN: Ron Paul Campaign Files 2nd Appeal for LA DelegatesSubmitted by Gordon Le on Sat, 08/18/2012 - 16:49
"Washington (CNN) - Ron Paul's presidential campaign isn't done fighting for more delegates at the Republican National Convention.
The Texas congressman's campaign sent a memo to the all RNC members, its counsel's office and the convention's credentials committee Friday evening, ahead of its second appeal to strip Louisiana of its delegates to the convention because of rules that it says were violated during the state convention.
The first appeal was rejected by the committee earlier this month.
"There's no way you can argue with a straight face that rules weren't changed," said Charlie Davis, Louisiana chairman of the Ron Paul campaign.
I would like to slap the talk out of Jason Dore right now. He and the state party is just trying to bend the rules to make delegates vote for Mitt Romney, whereas the purpose of being a delegate is to vote for the nominee that bests represents their views and political beliefs.
If Mitt Romney is not the person they want to vote for why can you force them? And you're just making it hard on the GOP with the conflict of an affidavit; just let the delegates do their job.
