Note: my apologies for the length, all the good stuff happens in the first 4-5 minutes. ;-)
Three ballots were cast inappropriately by the following members of the Wyoming Republican State Party:
-Chairman Tammy Hooper
-National Committeewoman Jan Larimer
-National Committeeman Greg Schaefer
First off, my apologies about the audio and video quality, it is a bit easier to hear if you turn the volume up. This was recorded on an older Sony Cybershot, video was more an afterthought for this camera.
That aside, this is the kind of dirty tactic used by cowards who are AFRAID of the truth, AFRAID that their candidate cannot earn their votes. THIS is precisely why I'm fed up with democrats and republicans in general. If your candidate can't earn my vote by their character, moral standing, and voting record alone, and the party they represent needs to turn to shady methods to get elected, I have absolutely NO respect for that candidate.
To me, a candidate even ALLOWING the party he/she represents to behave in a manner such as this is reason enough not to vote for them.
Essentially, this was a shady tactic used to force the Romney supporting delegates of the Wyoming Republican Party to focus their votes on fewer delegates. Now, why would they need to do that? They're afraid that Ron Paul's supporters would take the vote. That's it. Fear. Fear is what made them resort to cowardice.
For what it's worth, it was completely unnecessary. Romney supporters cast enough votes for their delegates for them to be elected as the primary delegates for the national campaign. There was no need for this underhanded trickery, you simply had the Ron Paul supporters vastly outnumbered. However, it really does reflect poorly when you resort to such tactics. You won't be getting my vote, and people will know of your actions.
EDIT: Only reason the ads are turned on here (I personally hate ads on Youtube..) is to raise funds for the Ron Paul 2012 campaign. ALL proceeds made from this video will be donated to the campaign.
