Meg Whitman -- CEO of Ebay which owns PayPal and a top member of Mitt Romney's team on finance.
She is the one who could pull the necessary strings to block the Granny Warriors in their effort to pay for the New Hampshire Republican recount.
We need to remember that everything that can be done will be done to deny Ron Paul and his supporters their Federal rights within each State's primary. The neo-cons are evil and will not let go of the Republican Party. Stealing votes is actually child's play compared to the assassinations of which they are capable.

I think it would have damaged Ron Paul's reputation if he had called for a recount, that's why he didn't do it, even if he thought there should be one.

And the real odd thing here is that paypal would freeze the account based on a "suspicious" donation? Since when does paypal freeze accounts based just upon the spelling of someone's name? I dunno folks, something is stinking pretty bad here. Paypal better have a damn good reason, and be able to show that there was prior suspicious activity with that account.

Consider it this way: Can Edison refuse to sell electricity to the campaign headquarters of candidates it opposes?
If I organize a grass roots campaign to elect someone to office, can AT&T shut off my phone because they don't want me using their services to support that person?
If Bank of America decides it's backing the Republican Party, can it refuse to process any checks or other transfers of funds from its customers to the Democratic Party?
The answers are clearly no.
