Big news just out. Turns out the Romney gang has pushed a rule change that will allow the GOP nominee (Romney) to veto individual delegates from any state and replace with people of his choice
I don't think that is the case...I don't think this has anything to do with Romney or this year...I'm not positive because I can't find more information about this story right now.
But I think they are discussing and approving the rules for 2016...not changing the rules for this year. The rules for this year were set in 2008, I don't think those can be changed.
Still looking into this...but I don't think this will have anything to do with Romney.

Excellent example to set. Democracy in action. If you don't like the rules just change them. This is just getting even more disgusting and blatant.

They should not be surprised. After all, the same leadership is doing its best to creatively find ways to suppress the votes for the Democrats in the States the Right controls. I hope this action will help them see the light, otherwise, what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
That aside, it is a slimy move, but Ginsberg is famous for finding end runs. He works quietly, in the background and does not like the limelight. This is also a window into how the Romney administration will operate.
From the way I read it .... it was regarding the next election if Mittens was president he could pick the delegates from the states which he won the electoral vote.... but it might be convention votes... that I am not sure of
It was actually that any candidate that won delegates from a state could appoint their own delegates instead of them being elected from the precincts.
