By now, it is clear that the Maine caucuses were a complete mess.
Evidence is mounting that Mitt Romney's 194-vote victory over Ron Paul was prematurely announced, if not totally wrong. Washington County canceled
their caucus on Saturday on account of three inches of snow (hardly a blizzard by Maine standards), and other towns that scheduled their caucuses for
this week have been left out of the vote count. Now, it looks like caucuses that did take place before Feb. 11 have also been left out of final tally.
As the full extent of the chaos unfolds, sources close to the Paul campaign tell Business Insider that it is looking increasingly like Romney's team
might have a hand in denying Paul votes, noting that Romney has some admirably ruthless operatives on his side and a powerful incentive to avoid a
fifth caucus loss this month.
Interesting article from Buisness Insider.
I can't see the coming months as being anything but a lose-lose situation for the anti-Paul GOP establishment- people who support Ron Paul never
change their mind, his numbers are growing, and without doubt the blatant voter fraud that is now clearly evident is going to nothing but create rage
among voters and rally his supporters.
If Paul isn't the nominee, I think it's pretty much fair to say Obama will win.
Even though I'm from Canada, I can't help but cheer on Ron Paul and give his supporters all the support I can, as I feel he is a threat to the
establishment that not only rules the US, but most of the western world as well.
