Libertarians Lose to Louisiana G.O.P
Yesterday, we were treated to the latest installation of drama surrounding Ron Paul's bid to claim Louisana's delegation to the GOP Convention. The latest ruling went against Paul's posse in a drama that has included a floor fight turned literal, lots of YouTube vids, and of course, a heated debate about the gold standard.
On Sunday, the National Republican Party sided with the Louisiana Republican Party in the conflict over Ron Paul’s representation in the Republican National Convention. Paul’s Louisiana campaign made national news in June, when a physical altercationoccurred between security and Paul’s advocates, leaving a 56 yr. old Paul supporter with injuries to his prosthetic hip. Paul’s campaign claimed that the LAGOP manipulated the system to prevent Paul’s delegates from attending the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
According to a press release issued by Paul’s National Campaign Manager John Tate, the LAGOP used “illegally adopted rules,” to deliberately prevent Paul’s delegates from attending the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
“LAGOP officials ignored the vast majority of duly elected delegates and attempted to use illegally adopted rules to deny Ron Paul supporters an opportunity to attend the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Louisiana has 46 delegates. Five were pledged to Mitt Romney based on the March 23rd primary result and Rick Santorum received 10, meaning most delegates were contestable at the state convention.”
Charlie Davis led Paul’s campaign in Louisiana, and he plans on appealing what Paul’s supporters consider, “illegal last minute rule changes to thwart a Ron Paul majority elected in congressional district caucuses last April.” Paul’s campaign also issued a press release, releasing plans to hold a rally on August 26 at the University of South Florida’s Sun Dome, shortly before the Republican National Convention takes place from September 1-4.
