uhmmm.... I honestly think Ron Paul did very well in our primary

I stood at the polling place.
The turn out was sooooooo poor. It was only old - like really old- people with their blue "handicapped parking" tags on their cars who apparently watched a lot of FOX from what I could sus out while cheerily asking for their vote. So it was the Geriatric crowd and the RIGOP regulars - who pretty much felt the MitMentum long before because our State Chair had sold/traded his own mailinglist from the last election to Romney for an endorsement for his failed run for Congress.

I would LOVE to say that RI had votes stolen - But I think coming in at 25% of the total vote was really quite impressive. The official campaign did NOTHING to gain those votes.

Ron Paul did come to town but a good number of those people I met while handing out my VOTE FOR ME postcards at URI came from MA or CT.

The only thing I can refer you to is my account of the State GOP Chair - who is now our Delegation Chair requiring people supply their Social Security Numbers to the RNC for admittance on the floor (to vote) at the convention in Tampa. Here is the DP account of that:

I have not filed with the "lawsuit" for several reasons. One being that I rectified the situation myself just by going in person and dealing with real people. The other being that I'm not entirely sure we got screwed in RI - it is a DEMOCRATIC BASTION and a petri dish for Government Projects.
