Exposed: Concerted Effort by Establishment to Steal Ron Paul’s Delegates
Doug Wead, a New York Times best selling author and a senior adviser for the Ron Paul presidential campaign, writes on his blog today that Alex Hayes, director of establishment Republicans in Washington State, made the claim that the Romney-Santorum-Gingrich campaigns are pushing a common slate of candidates in Washington State to block Ron Paul’s campaign from taking delegates.
“The apparent move on the part of the Romney-Santorum-Gingrich campaigns is to block citizens favoring Ron Paul from taking over the Washington State delegation to Tampa,” Wead writes.
Ron Paul has gained delegates at the expense of both Romney and Santorum. “States such as Missouri, where Senator Santorum won a meaningless beauty contest, will see a sizable Ron Paul representation, as will Minnesota, Maine, Colorado, Nevada and Iowa. In Nevada, on the first ballot, the delegates, even if Ron Paul supporters, must vote for candidates proportionately as they finished in the Nevada Statewide beauty contest. But they can vote their conscience on the second ballot,” Doug Wead explains.
Over the weekend, a video emerged showing how establishment Republicans in Missouri connived to rob Ron Paul of delegates:
A covert camera caught Alex Hayes explaining how the establishment in Washington State plans to rig the election against Paul. Hayes said the idea of a prearranged slate will probably be adopted on the national level.
Wead says that he is not sure if Hayes and the Republican election machine will push a united Romney-Santorum-Gingrich slate and attempt to disenfranchise Paul.
“On the other hand, if Mr. Hayes is exaggerating or not telling the truth, if the Romney-Santorum-Gingrich campaigns have not agreed on a common slate, then you are getting a look at how political power brokers play backroom games to disenfranchise the majority of their own party. You are seeing how people in power, cling to the little bit of power they have and are willing to lie or cheat to keep it,” he writes.
The Republican establishment will do whatever it can get away with to cheat Ron Paul and his supporters before the convention in August. Thanks to the proliferation of cell phone video, we can get a better picture of how they are doing this and what needs to be done in the future to expose their criminal efforts to rig elections and send another global elite marionette to Washington.
