GOP bars Paul supporter from serving as committeemanSubmitted by P.Au.L on Thu, 12/13/2012 - 11:41
Snip from the St. Augustine Record:
In August, Stevens won a three-way race for St. Johns County Republican state committeeman, but was told by party officials he does “not meet the qualifications” to be seated because of his suspension, which has another eight months to run.
The second-place finisher in the Republican state committeeman race, Randy Covington, had also been suspended for breaking party rules. Consequently, that post went to the third-place finisher, Bob Veit, a former Marine and long-time member of the Republican Executive Committee.
Stevens believes the decision against him is RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry’s attempt to purge the party of dissenting voices.
“In my mind, it comes down to the party wanting to control the message and who can be in the party,” Stevens said.

Note what Stevens says on the Ron Paul Forums:
The quote attributed to me about supporting Obama in this article is not mine. It was from an article written by someone else that I forwarded. I have asked Matt Dixon to print a correction. I have NEVER supported candidate Obama or President Obama in an election. This appears to be just another attempt by the RPOF leadership to marginalize and discredit anyone who they cannot "control".
