2013 Injured Ron Paul Supporter From 2012 LA Gop Conv. Files Suit

June 05, 2013-- 11:01 AM CDT

A Ron Paul supporter who was injured at the Louisiana Republican Convention in Shreveport last year has filed a lawsuit, THE DEAD PELICAN has learned. In June 2012, Henry Herford was injured in a scuffle with Shreveport police at the Louisiana Republican convention. The incident was captured on a video that later went viral. The video can be viewed here.

The changes filed against Herford, were eventually dropped, Herford's lawyer Charles Kincade tells THE DEAD PELICAN. And now, Herford has filed suit against the officers involved, GOP Chairman Roger Villere, the Louisiana GOP, and the company who owns the facility where the incident took place.

They literally stole our

They literally stole our delegates by changing the rules and regulations the night before the convention and then they did not recognize the meeting conducted by Robert's rule of order and the majority vote. Unfortunately, these are our fellow Americans we are fighting who brought us Bush, McCain, Romney. 200 years of the same old crap, yet they believe a Goldman Sach's candidate will save America? It does not matter Reb or Demo - "no matter who you vote for the government always gets in"

Roger Villere the chairman at the time was promoted by the GOP for thwarting the Ron Paul movement with national Vice Chair position. Still trying to change hearts and minds.....

Justice, Justice Shall you persue...

Here's hoping Henry Herford receives real justice, not Holder - style justice.

What took so long?...

And, why hasn't Ron or Rand been more strident on this?

Glad to hear it!

Thanks for the update.

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?
Freedom is only for those with the guts to defend it!


Attack on all fronts, and lets make sure liberty and justice wins.

I was disgusted when I watched this happen, expose the corruption!

Please keep us updated

I remember this, and I've been wondering if anything had been done. It's too bad that charges can't be brought, but this is at least something. I look forward to reading Roger Villere's explanation for his behavior there.
