Ron Paul Supporters Ousted in IowaSubmitted by laundryhead on Tue, 04/29/2014 - 08:22
This made me a little sick.
We all remember the shenanigans the establishment pulled during the 2012 election cycle. Despite their efforts, Ron Paul was able to win the majority of delegates in several states. Iowa was one of those states. Just when we thought we had a foot in the door, the Iowa Republicans have made a terrible mistake and ousted the Ron Paul supporting leadership.
The Des Moines Register said the party was trying to build a broader base, with less focus on “pet liberty-movement issues,” adding, “Big donors who closed their checkbooks may start giving money to the state party again.”
"By continuing under the leadership of Ron Paul supporters, Iowa Republicans risked having the state party sidelined, similar to what happened in Nevada in 2012."
The winner who wrote the article referred to "Mr. Ron Paul" neglecting his journalistic duty to address him formally as "Dr. Ron Paul."

Here is the article from the Des Moines Register:
"Saturday's results are a seismic shift: No longer in power are A.J. Spiker, who was the country's first liberty-movement state party chair; liberty Republican David Fischer, who was the party's co-chairman; and seven State Central Committee members who backed Paul, the father of the liberty movement. (There were 18 voting members, but the seven had formed alliances to claim a majority.)"
Spiker leaves the Republican Party of Iowa with more than $300,000 cash on hand, zero debt and with a voter registration advantage for Republicans over the Iowa Democratic Party.”
