I would not want to be in Charlie Webster's shoes right now. You can fudge paper ballots all you want, this? Not so much.

“Takeover is strong word; we’re all registered Republicans here,” said Matthew McDonald of Belfast, a Waldo County Republican and a Paul supporter. “But Chairman Webster called Ron Paul supporters wingnuts, he saw us as a fringe minority; now we hold the power of the convention.”
Would Webster face a backlash for apparently bending the rules to name a convention chairman ahead of time and not at the convention? Would Ron Paul supporters “take over” the convention, as Webster feared? Would what is supposed to be a party-building gathering devolve into a fractured mess?
Those questions were answered by lunchtime:Yes, yes and yes.
Also saw this on the front page of the Portland Press herald today. Maine GOP Convention: Paul shakes up the party. To be honest I was surprised to see this. Maybe the MSM is finally starting to wake up? Or a slow news day? Either way I am excited to see this.
