Comment: I was there but we got wiped out.

(See in situ)

I was there but we got wiped out.

When I left we had lost every position except one.

Matt Dubin (the good), was tied with Anthony Welcher (the bad), who is endorsed by Lori Sotelo (the ugly), for State Committeman with 193 votes each.

After I heard they were going to determine the winner by coion toos (after the 2nd re-count, I left.

If we lost that position (which I don't know yet), then the Ron Paul candidates got absolutely wiped out for EVERY King County GOP position.

Which means I basically wasted 9 hours of my life.

Except that I faked a run for a district committee postion so I could get 2 minutes to speak.

So I got up there and said my piece and then withdrew my name.

Not sure the party officials cared for that move but so be it.

At least I got SOMETHING for my $30.00 ($20.00 entry fee and $10.00 parking).

TEN (10) republican PCOs WERE TURNED AWAY AT THE DOOR due to inability or refusal to pay the $20.00.

So once on stage, I bitched about that and told the party that it was grossly unfair to the people of their precincts who were not represented.

And that it is NO WAY TO GROW the party.

Just another dirty play by the King County GOP.
