Võitlus delegaatidega Missouri osariigis

Nagu mõned eelmised sissekanded siia näitasid on Nevadas ja Texases olnud Vabariikliku Partei funktionääridel olnud mureks kuidas eemaldada valimistelt Ron Pauli delegaate. Nüüd on sellesse nimekirja lisandunud ka Misssouri osariigi Vabariikliku Partei figuurid. Partei üritab süüdistada ja selle taustal siis poliitiliselt elimineerida kõik delegaadid kes toetavad Ron Pauli. Süüdiustus sisaldab endas siis "Partei joone mitte jälgimises ja vastuhakus Partei otsustele" - meenutab see teile ehk midagi ???
Lisan ka siia alla ühe variandi antud uudisest originaalis.

Missouri GOP targeting 300 Ron Paul supporters at Monday ‘credentials meeting’

Why We Support Ron Paul

By Jo Mannies

According to an email from some Missouri supporters of Ron Paul, sent late Sunday night, the state Republican Party has scheduled a special “credentials meeting” for 10 a.m. Monday at the Blue Armory in Jefferson City.

At the meeting, according to the email, about 300 of the 1,900 elected delegates to the state GOP convention May 30-June 1 must disprove allegations that — presumably — accuse the targeted delegates of not being bona fide Republicans and/or not committed to supporting John McCain for president.

“The state Central Committee spent approximately $1,000 on certified mailings that do not even state the allegations,” said the email sent from one challenged delegate. “A small group of insiders are attempting to prevent delegates, properly elected at their county caucuses, from attending the state Convention in Branson.

“Although many have repeatedly attempted to find out the basis of the challenges, these 300-plus delegates have been left in the dark and forced to travel great distances, some well over 100 miles, to finally learn the charges against them. Challenged delegates will be limited to a mere five minutes to respond to the charges with no time to prepare.”

Those challenged include “current Republican Committee members, members of the Missouri Republican Assembly, current Republican candidates, and attendees of previous conventions, with the only common factor being that they voted for Republican Congressman Ron Paul during the primary.”

Here’s a few examples cited in the email:

Laura Mize: “As a 78-year-old long-time Republican voter and the daughter of a lifetime staunch Republican from Southeast Missouri, I voted for the only man that represents the principles of the Republican Party as taught by my father and now they want to throw me away like an old newspaper. Well, they have started a fire instead! I’m so angry, I will show up even if I have to be carried on a stretcher!”

Eric Vought, Republican Committeeman from Springfield: “Having just worked to sell tickets for one fundraiser and putting together a donation for their silent auction, it disturbs me that they are spending $3.60 per certified letter, times a few hundred delegates to challenge all of these people. Why should I bother raising money for them if this is how they choose to spend it?”
