"I have always been a straight-ticket Republican, and for the first time in my life I am an undecided voter, therefore, I need to resign my position as a Republican presidential elector," Wadsley said in an email exchange with The Associated Press.
"They've never given Ron Paul a fair shot, and I'm disgusted with that," Wadsley told the AP for the story that preceded her resignation. "I'd like to show them how disgusted I am."
Iowa GOP Chairman A.J. Spiker said in a statement Thursday that the state party's central committee would begin the process of selecting a replacement, essentially allowing the party to confirm a die-hard Romney supporter.

No matter how the press treated Ron Paul, he still is too 'extreme' in his views to have gotten enough votes in the primaries to win under the GOP ticket. He sacrificed his possibilities when he joined the GOP and and decided to go up against the "chosen" candidate. It was Romney's turn. There's no way the GOP would have allowed anyone else.
Ron Paul screwed up his chances. If he had gone Independent or Libertarian, he would have had a much better chance. Why he sold out to the GOP, I will never understand.
I admire the woman in the OP for not betraying her own personal judgment in voting for Romney. I think there are going to be many more voters who get behind that privacy curtain and do the same. They may vote for Mickey Mouse or write in Ron Paul.

If Ron Paul had won the nomination I would have voted republican for the first time.
However, he did not. I refuse to vote for Romney, and I'm unsure on Obama at the moment.
I really think the GOP messed up. College students swayed the election in 2008 and they will again. And you can bet the majority won't vote Romney. Just my opinion.
