As a service to Ron Paul activists, laboring in the GOP delegation process, I am posting as many reports from the conventions as possible. This is to help you see what works, what doesn’t and why.
This report from April Poley, a Ron Paul activist in Wyoming, writes about last weekend’s Republican Party Convention in Wyoming:
“Our State Chairman and both of our National Committee members all submitted fraudulent ballots. The National Committee woman admitted to filling out 2 ballots and the other 2 people were not entitled to vote but they voted anyway. This was just one of the issues I had to deal with. They also tried to prevent us from having an observer of the vote count.
They had Josh Romney give a speech, who held up a flyer with a Romney slate printed on it, and told everyone there that these were great Americans that his father had handpicked to be his delegates and they proceeded to put the flyers on every table in the convention. With the insinuation obviously being, that you are not a good American if you aren’t willing to vote for that slate.
Not only did those 3 super delegates pass through fraudulent ballots, but the rumor was spread that “Ron Paul supporters filled out multiple ballots and cheated”. So I got up on the stage in front of all 400+ people and announced that the extra ballots came from the Executive Committee. There is of course a media blackout on all of this; it’s unbelievable.
And we [Ron Paul supporters] did take over the Nominating Committee on Friday. We had 16 out of 44 of the votes in the committee but we managed to take 9 out of the 14 preferred delegate positions on the ballot. I actually saw/heard one guy telling that to Senator Enzi and his wife Diana. ‘The Ron Paul people took over the Nominations Committee’ and Diana put her hand over her mouth and gasped, ‘OH NO!’ You would think someone just told her we killed her dog
There was a definite sick feeling at the convention. I didn’t see a rally behind Romney at all. It took all the Senators, the Governor and even the former VP of the U.S. (Dick Cheney) getting on stage and telling them to suck it up and vote for Romney; but the delegates did not vote Romney with excitement. They did it because they were told that there was no other choice that ‘could win.'”

Watch the antics below…. 3 minutes into the below video the Romney attorney says they agree w/ the decision and then April says she agrees but points out the source of the extra votes:
