NV: Why there will be no 'official' State convention on July 26th

Clearly the media has missed the fact that there is no scheduled convention in Nevada on July 26th.

Here is my letter from Sue Lowden asking for an illegal mail-in ballot, or an RSVP along with $35.00 for extra security.

Seems like if you're fishing for a quorum, you probably shouldn't give people 2 options. That's a nice quick way to kill it.

I predict that mail in

I predict that mail in ballots will be counted as present for quorum purposes.

I don't believe so

First, they do not intend to have a convention at all. Second, I'm sure they have parlimentarians who have found (this was posted by someone else before):
RE MAIL-IN BALLOTS:
Robert's Rules of Order definately throws a lot of cold water on selecting delegates by mail-in ballots.

p. 408 "It is a fundamental principle of parliamentary law that the right to vote is limited to the members of an organization who are actually present at the time the vote is taken in a legal meeting"

p. 409 "Exceptions to this rule must be expressly stated in the bylaws. Such possible exceptions include: Voting by postal or electronic mail..."

...Remember that 9 delegates were selected by ballot at the convention....

p. 409 "An organization should never adopt a bylaw permitting a question to be decided by a voting procedure in which the votes of persons who attended a meeting are counted together with ballots mailed in by absentees."
So basically, they can't do it by mail without adding that ability to the bylaws. Even if they change the bylaws, they cannot mix mail-in ballots with in-person ballots at the same meeting, which is what a re-convention would be, because it was not properly adjourned!

and Third, the convention was completed on June 28th. My guess is that if they do anything it will be to submit the slate originally created by the Nominating Committee, but that, too, will be illegal as it was voted down by a 2/3 majority and replaced with the nominations and votes from the floor. Nope, they got themselves a problem which could easily have been avoided by allowing the convention to complete the first day, or joining the convention again on the second and final day, June 28th. So far, the tactic seems to be just ignore, delay, and do whatever the hell they want to.

IT'S DOABLE

I don't know, maybe someone else does

But I do know that every conceivable recourse to any action taken by the NV GOP has and is being researched. Maybe someone else have more information regarding gavinations question. If you could have seen how carefully thought out the convention itself was, you'd know that experts are at work here.

IT'S DOABLE

I don't doubt that, Paulette. I was just wondering if anyone had

thought of that.

a friend of mine that lives

a friend of mine that lives in nevada said she saw the news on Sunday that said the convention was done and the delegates were elcted. When I call her back I will ask for more details. She has not been following this stuff and she does not own a computer, so i imagine she did not just pull this out of her hat...she told me out of the blue sort of thing. I was surprised since I had not seen anything on here about Nevada.

That's interesting

Yes, please see if she remembers what channel it was on. I would say that we are close to a blackout in the media on the conclusion of the convention. Remember the gaming industry sort of owns the state, the media, the politicans and Suzanne Lowden is on several boards for gaming concerns or casinos. Somewhere there was a massive list of contact in Nevada. If some of you have the time, we might find that list and email or call these people and ask about the June 28th Convention and why they haven't been covering it in the news. Let's get some responses. You might send such a request along with the article by Richard Bunce posted earlier about the legality and what happened at the convention. I'd sure like to hear what they have to say for themselves. The approach should be, why haven't they listed the delegates and talked about all that was accomplished...done deal!

IT'S DOABLE

Sounds like the

NV GOP "leadership"(smirk) has to think twice to be a half-wit

That observation is worth

a big bump......

IT'S DOABLE

My favorite line:

"However, the need to reconvene the Convention will force us to incur expenses we had not anticipated. These include such set up costs as chairs, a small stage, microphones, lights, and the clean up and tear down."

Didn't they just host an entire convention? How could you not anticipate the costs of chairs, a stage, microphones, lights, and clean up / tear down? It was only 2 months ago.

Second of all, we have been repeatedly assured by Sue that the convention will come at "No additional cost".

Last time it was $50.00 to cover this with preregistration, or $75.00 at the door. Now they only want $35.00? I feel ripped off in so many ways I can't express them all....

What is even crazier is that

What is even crazier is that you look at convention dates all across this country and you see everyone for two to three days. They knew this would last longer than 5p.m. We all know that. They had the rooms booked for more days than that and to pay someone for a little overtime is much better than to pay to revamp an entire convention.

They are being ridiculous and I think "WE THE PEOPLE" of Nevada have spoken.

They knew that extra expenses

would occur to all delegates when Sue Lowden gave the word for Bob Beers to bang that gavel down...illegally. Now their costs may have just started.

IT'S DOABLE

Let's hope they can't keep up!!!!

$35 Security Fee

...because some Republicans are more equal than others.

How about you make your own

How about you make your own box on that letter that says "No Thank you we already had the convention weren't you there?"

ROFL!!! :-) Like they'd give you an option to say no!!

start getting your "Ps" and "Qs" togehter for a lawsuit against

the NV GOP, NV asking for 35 for security tells me that probably NV GOP is low on funds. Making a civil suit against the NV GOP just might break the bank.

Guess you will not find out

Guess you will not find out for sure until the 7th. If there really were 1400 people there last time, and 1100 show up again with $35. each then they will have to hold it. It is still up in the airas to how this will be won, but it looks good for the conservative, moral and rule abiding Republicans..:)

That will not be an issue

The Delegates Convention on the 28th was concluded and included in the motions, second, and vote - the convention is complete and there can be no other. The NV GOP never had any intention of restarting the convention. There bottom line is that they want to submit the original slate created by the Nominating Committee which was overruled and voted down.

We need to get the word out to people that the convention was held and the delegates duly elected. Results: www.nevadagopconvention.com The party leaders and delegates who choose a $10 hotdog over attending the continuance of the convention...lost their voice and their vote. IMO, they were derelict in their duty to perform as delegates on behalf of the people of Nevada.

IT'S DOABLE

They won the day in Idaho

I hope that blaze heads over the border and lights the hearts of the good people in Nevada!

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.
