The Ron Paul presidential campaign, suspicious of the Republican establishment, has accused top Washington GOP officials of "shenanigans" in delegate appointments ahead of Saturday's precinct caucuses. [...]
[Ron Paul campaign attorney] David Warrington alleged "substantial irregularities" in the selection of precinct-committee officers (PCOs) in King County [Washington].
PCOs are important because they run caucuses and become automatic delegates to the county and legislative-district conventions that will help determine how to allocate Washington's 43 delegates to the Republican National Convention this summer in Tampa, Fla.
While PCOs are normally elected, vacant positions can be filled through appointments by party leaders.
The Paul campaign raises the suspicion that King County GOP Chairwoman Lori Sotelo may have violated party rules and appointed PCOs after a Dec. 14 deadline — presumably to stave off a Paul victory here.

SEATTLE — Ron Paul's presidential campaign on Wednesday threatened to fight the seating of some Washington delegates to the Republican National Convention, saying there is a lack of transparency in how party officials from the state's largest county are chosen.
Paul's claim came three days before Washington's Republican caucuses on Saturday.
Kirby Wilbur, the state GOP Party chairman, said Paul's accusations are "baseless." A lawyer for Paul's campaign sent a letter to Wilbur and Lori Sotelo, head of the King County Republican Party. The Paul campaign said the King County GOP violated party rules by not revealing the names of certain party officials, known as precinct committee officers, who will take part in the caucuses.
"Their concern is that they appointed all these last-minute, anti-Ron Paul PCOs, but there's no proof," Wilbur told The Associated Press.

LAKE JACKSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign announced today details of its Super Tuesday and pre-Super Tuesday ad buy blueprint, an approach that will help the 12-term Congressman from Texas win the delegates required to secure the Republican nomination.
The advertising campaign’s first leg involves airing the celebrated ads ‘Three of a Kind’ and ‘Plan’ in Washington and Vermont, respectively. The former ad will air in Washington beginning today for three days on the Fox News Channel in the final push for the Evergreen State’s Saturday, March 3rd caucus. The latter ad will air beginning today in Vermont on The Fox News Channel and on targeted broadcast outlets, but it will air through Tuesday, March 6th – Super Tuesday – when the Green Mountain State holds its primary.
‘Three of a Kind’ at 60 seconds condemns the serial hypocrisy, counterfeit conservatism, and flip-flopping of Ron Paul’s rivals Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Mitt Romney respectively. The ad concludes with a reminder that Paul is the sole authentic conservative vying for the nomination, and reiterates elements of the congressman’s path-breaking ‘Plan to Restore America.’
A few weeks ago, my 85-year-old grandmother said she and grandpa were disgusted with the field of Republican presidential candidates, but they were considering casting their not-Obama votes for Santorum due to his religious beliefs. Shocked, I asked what their objections were to Ron Paul and she said, “Well, he dropped out! We don’t hear anything about him on the news!”
Carol Paul tells a WTPN activist that half of Ron Paul’s votes are being thrown away during a post-AZ GOP debate viewing party appearance.

I did not see this posted anywhere here. Of course! This is HUGELY important to the campaign! Why have gas prices suddenly surged upward? Threat of war with Iran, but there really should be no threat. Of course, WE knew that, but the warmongering trio and Obama don't want you to think such. Worthy of sharing with a friend or two.
WASHINGTON — Even as the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog said in a new report Friday that Iran had accelerated its uranium enrichment program, American intelligence analysts continue to believe that there is no hard evidence that Iran has decided to build a nuclear bomb.
I thought this was interesting.
".... Romney received just 1,338 votes here (Detroit).
....Texas Rep. Ron Paul won the Detroit GOP vote, with 5,525 ballots cast. Behind Paul was former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum with 4,047 votes."
I wonder if this will translate into any delegates as delegates are awarded by congressional district.
Hello all! I have been meaning to share something that happened to me last week at a Republican Town Council meeting.
Last week I had sought out the help of my Ron Paul family regarding any information one might have had on a CT candidate for Senate, Linda McMahon. Obviously a few of you came to my rescue and really got me fired up. I was prepared to ask her about why she thought TARP was a great idea, thoughts on the Fed, and thoughts on military involvement (she believes we should take our orders from the Powell Doctrine). Needless to say, I was armed and dangerous.
Can you believe it, she did not show up! She sent an intern to talk to our groups-many were not pleased. (Personally I think she backed out because she has moles on this site and found out I was going to be there) An older gentleman made sure to tell this intern he thought it was very disrespectful, as a candidate, to say you will talk to a group of possible supporters but then send in "her lackey."
I felt deflated. All geared up for battle and then nothing. But all was not lost...
First Bernanke than Hillary - Ron Paul continues to ride Truth Train through DC - fueled by facts and common sense!
When the Pauls were in Reno, shortly after their 55th anniversary, I was able to get a few minutes with Carol.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY today, Carol!
NJToday.net: New Jersey’s Oldest Weekly Newspaper Endorses Congressman Ron Paul’s Quest for the Republican Party NominationSubmitted by zeci on Wed, 02/29/2012 - 15:44
New Jersey today endorses Ron Paul for President.
The only excited voters now...
...are the crazy nutjobs who support Ron Paul.
Even you, Rush, aren't excited about Romnantorich. If you were, you would tell the world, and the media would declare your endorsement as the end of the Republican Primaries. You won't though, because Romnantorich is McCain '08.
The Republucan Primaries of 2012 have become the Democrat(ic) Primaries of 2004, where "Anybody But Bush" has become "Anybody But Obama."
I heard you talk about the Constitution. As a 12-year active duty Naval Submarine Officer, I defend the Constitution every day. And (that's right, here it comes), there is ONE candidate who defended the Constitution during the Cold War and has been defending the Constitution since he's been in office: Congressman Ron Paul.
It is time for the Republican Party to open their eyes to the true meaning and purpose of the Constitution. If they continue to use the symbol of the Constitution to achieve their own objectives, just as the Democrats use it, you will see the next generation of voters (the one you, the media, and your colleagues continue to ignore and deride) leave the party in search of something more pure and more noble than you have ever seen before. And you will be left scratching your head as you grow old(er) and grey(er), not realizing you could have been part of the beginning of the Second American Revolution.
Adam C. for Ron Paul
For a while now, Gary Johnson supporters have been pointing out one simple fact: even as a Republican, the media had completely blacked Gary Johnson out, even worse than what they did for the iconic Ron Paul. Now, after pondering that fact, I think I know why.
Gary Johnson, being so similar to Ron Paul, is a "second witness" to the political truths that Ron Paul expresses. Worse, he is evidence that those truths work.
Gary Johnson, as a libertarian-leaning Republican, ousted incumbant governor of New Mexico by a significant margin (at least 40% more than his opponent) in a state with a heavy Democrat voting population (2-1). This by itself doesn't prove much, but then he got reelected against a hispanic Democrat by a similarly significant margin, being the first NM governor in years to be elected a second consecutive term ever; in New Mexico, there was a law holding term limits to 1. That had changed in 1991, 2 years before Johnson was elected.
