On Wednesday, I posted how the Republican Party of Cuyahoga County (RPCC) -- the county where Cleveland, Ohio is located -- had an online straw poll for President. Someone within the Party had twice manually revised down the vote total for Ron Paul, purposely skewing the vote in favor of establishment candidates (see original post: http://www.dailypaul.com/174932/cleveland-gop-cheating-ron-paul). The Daily Paul community came through big, voting Ron Paul up so high so fast that the RPCC decided to pull the poll altogether.
Since they pulled the poll, the RPCC has claimed they traced the vote total to a single IP address, thereby wholly delegitimizing the vote, and further trying to mock, alienate, and write off Ron Paul and his supporters. Fortunately, I have contacted a reporter with a reputable Cleveland paper who intends to run this story. We have well documented the RPCC’s actions and she has everything she needs except for one crucial thing…
The reporter wants us to recreate the massive vote surge on a “test” online poll that she created on a site – a protected site that insures the impossibility of double IP voting. It is imperative we run up this vote total and run it up fast. And don’t just vote yourself. Please shoot this poll far and wide. Share it on facebook; share it on twitter; email it out; blast it through the meetup lists; copy and paste this post and share it on other message boards. The larger the vote total, the more powerful the statement.
If we can expose this establishment GOP fraud, this story has all the potential of making waves beyond the shores of Lake Erie. This completely fits in with the post-Ames narrative of the establishment purposely belittling the candidacy of Ron Paul.
Thank you for your help!
************** VOTE ‘YES’ HERE: http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=4e4dbd78c83fb0e434616f97 **************
UPDATE: You don't have to vote "yes", you can also vote "no." What matters is the vote total of the poll is run up, not whether yes beats no. Sorry that it was poorly framed.
