Email to Local News. I Hope Everyone Does the Same!Submitted by bdennehy on Fri, 08/31/2012 - 16:55
To whom it may concern at the Oregonian,
My name is Bryn Dennehy, and I am a student at the University of Oregon who has lived in Eugene my whole life. I just recently returned from Tampa, Florida where I attended the Republican National Convention. I was not a delegate or an alternate, but merely a concerned citizen from Oregon going there to voice my opinion and support my presidential candidate of choice, Congressman Dr. Ron Paul. My story can be found here:

There were a few other international media who covered my trip, BUT I AM NOT WRITING TO YOU TODAY ABOUT MYSELF. I am not interested in anything about myself being published in the Oregonian.
I am writing to you today with the hope that you will break the story of one of the grossest violations of the rule of common decency that I have ever seen committed by a political party, and the evidence is on tape.
During the voice vote on the most significant rules change enacted by the Republican Party in history, granting sweeping new powers to presumptive nominees in future elections to hand pick delegates, THE RNC HAD ALREADY DECIDED WHO WOULD WIN BEFORE THE VOTE WAS EVEN TAKEN! John Boehner, the Speaker of the House, read FROM A TELEPROMPTER the PRE-SCRIPTED result of a vote THAT HAD NOT BEEN TAKEN YET. Thankfully, someone with a camera phone recorded the teleprompter and caught the RNC CHEATING RED HANDED! Please do some research, and show the citizens of Oregon what really happened at the RNC.
Here is the cell phone video of the teleprompter providing Boehner with the pre-scripted result, skip to 1:50: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77W5OKStO5s&feature=youtu.be
Here is a television report from last night covering this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKaXqoC4DjE&feature=youtu.be
Here is a 11 minute video that completely captures the outrageous corruption committed by the GOP at the convention: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B39W91O-rUg&feature=youtu.be
I am a registered Republican in Oregon, and I am furious at the treatment of Ron Paul and all Liberty delegates to the Republican National Convention. Please, do the right thing and expose this corruption. A fair election process is the foundation upon what the United States of America was built. Considering more than half of the delegates to the convention from Oregon were Liberty/Ron Paul delegates, I feel that it is your duty as journalists to cover this story.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
