Exciting news that these ballots are FINALLY released. There is no doubt in my mind that Ron Paul took the state - the GOP heads even knew hence they shut down our convention. Note the following:
Dear Nevada Patriots,
I have some exciting news: The ballots from the CD 2 delegate election have been found intact! We plan to count them THIS FRIDAY, and we need volunteers. Please RSVP if you would like to attend! (Click here) Read on for details...
Last week, Republican National Committeewoman Heidi Smith contacted my daughter, Jennifer. Heidi obtained a key that she believed might be the key to the locked box containing the Congressional District #2 (CD 2) Republican National Convention delegate ballots from the Nevada State Republican Convention held on April 26th, 2008 at the Peppermill Hotel/Casino.
As you may recall, the counting of the ballots from CD 2 was never completed due to the premature and illegal closure of the State Convention. When the Convention was shut down, the counting of the ballots was halted in midstream. Following the orders of Party leadership, the CD 2 ballots were placed into a locked box at the Peppermill cashier's cage. Previous attempts to retrieve those ballots (including prior to the State Convention continuation on June 28th, 2008) have been unsuccessful due to the complete uncooperation of party officials.
Since April 26th, the validity and even the existence of those ballots has been questioned. As many of you know, the delegates from CD 2 were, in the end, appointed to the Republican National Convention by the national Republican leadership.
On Wednesday, October 21st, I was part of a group of concerned Republicans who met with National Committeewoman Heidi Smith at the Peppermill to attempt to determine the fate of those legally cast ballots. One of the original participants, October Pawlik, who was present when the ballots were originally locked away on April 26th, attended this investigation.
In box #99 at the Peppermill's cashier's cage, we found the ballots from CD 2. The seals on the envelopes containing the ballots were unbroken. Ms. Pawlik stated that the envelopes containing the ballots, and all the contents of the locked box, appeared to be undisturbed since April 26th. Again, the seals on the envelopes (with signatures of the observers across the seals) were unbroken. We immediately placed the ballots into a different locked box at the Peppermill cashier's cage. National Committeewoman Heidi Smith retained the key to that box.
Although the National Republican Convention is long over, we are determined to have these ballots counted. We believe we have the obligation to determine the outcome of that vote, in the interests of justice, for the record, as well as for the health and unification of the Republican Party itself.
The ballot count is tentatively scheduled take place at the Washoe County Republican Party headquarters this Friday, October 30th, at 4:00 pm. A limited number of volunteers are needed to count votes and to observe the vote count.
If you would like to volunteer to count votes or to observe, please RSVP at this website:http://www.meetup.com/NevadaSonsOfLiberty/calendar/11721444/
OR email me by responding to this email.
Space is limited, so PLEASE let us know if you plan to attend.
Note: This is NOT about "Ron Paul vs. McCain." This is an attempt to close an unpleasant chapter in Republican Party history and move on. Supporters of ANY 2008 candidate are welcome!
