Comment: YES; Rule 11 seems to be broken by TWO states, thusfar!

YES; Rule 11 seems to be broken by TWO states, thusfar!

I studied up on rule-11, as written for each state's delegation. Now, this is where i see the main difference between what happened and what people believe will NOW happen.

Rule-11 pertains to the STATE conventions and the STATE delegations' votes on the national convention floor. IF a candidate conspires to commit FRAUD with the State's GOP, as we saw in Maine and Nevada (and probably Iowa and Missouri and other states), said candidate cannot BE on the state's ballot. Well, people who were employed BY Romney's STATE campaign offices, at least in Nevada and Maine, did work WITH each state's GOP OFFICE, to produce and pass-out fraudulent slates (of Ron Paul supporters) in order to split the Ron Paul vote, hence insuring a win for Romney. It didn't work, but here is where we NEED to implement Rule-11...
In Nevada, where delegates are *sort of* bound, the Ron Paul delegates did promise to vote, first round, for Romney (as he supposedly won that ridiculous beauty-pageant-- again, most likely fraudulently).. However, IF Rule-11 is applied to remove Mitt from their state's ballot, when it comes to the NATIONAL delegation from Nevada as well as Maine, Romney should NOT even be an option. The good folk of both states should not have a chance to even VOTE FOR Romney when it comes to the NATIONAL vote. And, these people are planning on playing this same fraudulent game in Oklahoma, today!!
I think we need to get the campaign to file exceptions within Maine AND Nevada, to remove Mitt from either State's BALLOTS. Yes, their conventions (state level) are over, but the people voted-in to represent the state are still going to vote in Tampa. Romney should NOT even be a choice, as he and his campaign, in collusion with the states' party officials, has ruled himself OUT.
And, this needs to be taken on IMMEDIATELY, before the usuals in the RNC decide to, again, simply remove Ron Paul delegates from their states' delegations. Yes, they are working toward this end.
thanks!

We had SOME proof, but RNC does not care about Rules n Laws- they just break and then change 'em to suit whomever (not PAUL).
