"The presidential campaign of Texas Rep. Ron Paul is calling it “underhanded” and “completely unacceptable” that the Nevada GOP has scheduled a special evening caucus in Las Vegas on Feb. 4 to accommodate billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson."

Wow, that's terrible. I can understand scheduling an additional voting day on behalf of Jewish voters who wish to respect the Sabbath, but it's TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE that ONLY Jewish voters are allowed to vote on that day. That's absolutely unfair favoritism, and it introduces extra complexity into the counting as well, as JJ2 said...

An amazing turnout at our private caucus! Newt got 19,999k votes! There was one vote that was illegible, so the rest of the candidates can share that.

Un-freakin-believable that you can even think you can hold a caucus that is held on the property of a huge donor and has a 'religion test' to be able to vote.

I'd pay to see a copy of that test, though.

Sick.

Well time to use this by spreading it far and wide. Hopefully it gets fixed in Nevada but regardless the public should be made aware of this it'll sway at least some voters.
That's totally over the top though. Adding time that's open to everyone and isn't on the property of someone with a vested interest would be one thing, but the way they have it set up? Totally out of hand.

I see how they might advertise on TV that this is the only vote day, then people miss the real day and come out to this alternative day and the non jews are barred from voting. Sounds like a professional level fraud set-up.

Hmm, found this in the Nevada sub-forums:
http://www.lvrj.com/news/clark-county-gop-sets-after-sundown-caucus-for-religious-groups-137908328.html


Most Clark County Republicans will caucus starting at 9 a.m., probably finishing the meetings within a few hours after voting for their presidential favorites and electing delegates to the county convention. The presidential poll will determine who won the most support and delegates.

The after-sundown caucus is scheduled to open its doors at 6 p.m. to register Jews, Seventh-day Adventists and others whose religion prevents them from meeting during the day. The caucus will start at 7 p.m., allowing participants to vote for their presidential preference but not elect delegates.

Not sure if the evening caucus is only open to Jews, etc. Based on the comments it looks like an at-large caucus, but here is the key, supposedly only to be part of the preferencial poll, BUT NOT ELECT DELEGATES.

We should probably have some RP supporters show up stealth there anyway just to observe.

And if anyone in Nevada can chime in on this as well...

just tell people to say they are 7th Day Adventist, or let someone be turned away for religious reasons. It would not play well in the media if people are turned away for being Christian.

Jews voting at a separate place? this is something out of Nazi Germany?

older voters are not ready to be targeted; the tipping point has to play its natural progression, age upward

the next to switch will be those in the early 30s.

Ah, well that's welcome news. If that last holds true and this extra voting time doesn't elect delegates that significantly diminishes its negative impact on the Paul campaign. Just like Iowa winning the 'straw poll' matters less than the delegate selection, as recently as his NPR interview on Wednesday Congressman Paul was signalling the chance of a strong showing in Iowa once the delegates are selected. While I still think a local challenge to this is called for, if the 'not electing delegates' aspect holds true then I'm not sweating this one.

The Democrats rule the NVGOP... it's all the RINO Liberals out of Las Vegas that control the state party. The Mega-Casino MILLIONAIRES/BILLIONAIRES control all the politicians in Clark county.

Did anyone see the coverage on ABC Good Morning America? They covered Adleson and his Wife pumping millions into Gingrich's campaign. The shocking part played, was Adleson stating the only fault was he served in the US military and not the Israeli Military. But it gets even better, he stated the Adlesons are "Zionists and back all means of ruling and controlling the NWO, by all means. I was quite surprise that ABC would even cover the videos of the Adleson statements.

He bought AIPAC a entire new building in Washington DC, spent a $100 million on indoctrinating Jewish children back to Israel, and for Israeli oppression against all non-jewish people. He supports free fertility drugs for Jewish couples only in Israel. It goes on and on...


Yeah, this guy has one allegiance and that's to Israel, but as you can see, he doesn't have any problem living and profiting in America and using that to steal from the American taxpayers for his "agenda".

Yes Israel is first for Sheldon. I don't like that at all and it is very bad for America.

one positive note:
I once worked for him and I can tell you first hand though, Sheldon Treats all his employees very very well. He once to me that as long as he was alive that he would provide free medical and prescription coverage for all his employees.

That's what I was thinking. Just show up at whatever the location of this rigged caucus is. How are they going to bar/throw out thousands of people that all converge at this one place at the same time? It would make national headlines at least and expose the underhanded games going on.

Flash mob at Adelson's school!

It also puts things into perspective a bit since $10 million is chump change for a guy like Adelson and he can practically buy a presidential election. This is what we're up against but we're ultimately up against much of the uber rich elite. Adelson is only one player.

they would have to not all ready have voted, and that would lose us a lot of votes. I did see another story saying no delegates were tied to this special caucus, but we don't just want hidden victories, we'd like some acknowledgment.

Be suspicious!
Don't forget! The Nevada GOP cheated Ron Paul out of delegates in 2008!

When Paul supporters were about to be elected as delegates in April of 2008, Nevada's GOP shut the state convention down. Party leaders claimed that time had run out on the convention room they'd rented from the "Peppermill". The lights were shut off and participants were told to leave.

Ballots were then locked away at the casino cashiers cage at the Peppermill. Former national committee woman BEVERLY WILLARD held on to the key for over a year before finally mailing it to former Republican Chairwoman SUE LOWDEN.

After 18 months, the ballots were finally counted when a more recently-elected party chairwoman, Nancy Ernault retrieved them from the Peppermill. It was then proven that 3 Paul supporters had won. Robert Terhune had received 288 votes, and Marla Criss and Pat Kerby had both received 283 votes.

In 2008, the National Republican Party eventually admonished Nevada's Republican leaders for their bad conduct, but then gave them the privilege of choosing the delegates that would attend the national convention. Nevada's Republican leaders then chose MICHELLE BEARD, FELY QUITEVIS, and BARBARA SCOVILLE, who had received 12 votes, 19 votes and 0 votes respectively.


"Rather than send Paul delegates to the national convention three years ago, Nevada Republican convention chairman BOB BEERS called the state convention to an abrupt end in April 2008." (April 30, 2011)

And the shenigans began earlier than that!


Nevada GOP dismisses Paul complaint
January 18, 2008 By Michael Levenson, Globe Staff

LAS VEGAS -- Ron Paul, other than Mitt Romney the only Republican actively campaigning for Saturday's Republican caucuses in Nevada, called this afternoon for the state party to consider postponing the contest due to "multiple inconsistencies."

But the state Republican Party immediately dismissed the allegations and said the caucus would go on as planned.

"We would hope that the Paul campaign would go act like adults and not try to set up straw men to make up for their lack of organizing," said Steve Wark, a caucus spokesman.

The Paul campaign complained that voters have received postcards with incorrect caucus locations, that eligibility requirements to participate have been changed several times, and that several rural counties could run out of ballots.

"The inconsistencies, errors and multiple changes in the rules reek of playing politics with the what should be a neutral process," said campaign manager Lew Moore said in a statement. "The people of Nevada deserve to know exactly what the rules are and to know that those rules are being fairly enforced. This has not happened up to this point, and the caucus appears to be in chaos."...

The casino company run by the principal financial backer of Newt Gingrich's presidential bid, Sheldon Adelson, has been under criminal investigation for the last year by the Department of Justice and the Securities Exchange Commission for alleged bribery of foreign officials, according to corporate documents.

In a separate civil lawsuit, a former executive of the company has alleged that Adelson ordered him to keep quiet about sensitive issues at the Sands casinos on the Chinese island of Macau, including the casinos' alleged "involvement with Chinese organized crime groups, known as Triads, connected to the junket business." The triads -- Chinese organized crime syndicates -- are allegedly involved in organizing high stakes gambling junkets for wealthy Chinese travelers.

The triads -- Chinese organized crime syndicates -- are allegedly involved in organizing high stakes gambling junkets for wealthy Chinese travelers.

In its filings with the SEC, Adelson's company says it became aware of the investigation in February 2011 when it received a subpoena from the SEC requesting "documents relating to its compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act." The company said it "intends to cooperate with the investigation," which it said may have been triggered by the allegations in the lawsuit by Steven C. Jacobs, a former Sands executive who says he helped run the Macau operation. The federal investigation was first reported last year by Las Vegas newspapers and the financial press.

Sands CEO backs Gingrich and a Miami casino

Sheldon Adelson is Newt Gingrich’s biggest political backer, and also is pushing Miami to endorse his plan for a downtown casino. He’s gotten lots of press in Florida for one of those causes.
By DOUGLAS HANKS

What does Newt Gingrich have in common with a proposed downtown Miami casino?

Both are being backed by the same man: Las Vegas Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson.

Adelson and his wife’s $10 million injection into a political committee slamming Gingrich rival Mitt Romney have emerged as a major subplot in Florida’s GOP primary, thanks to the flurry of television ads funded by their money. Less noticed is Adelson’s direct tie to the biggest controversy facing the Sunshine State’s tourism industry at the moment.

Sands is helping lead the fight to expand Florida’s gambling laws to allow casino resorts in Miami and elsewhere across the state. Adelson hosted local leaders in an office suite overlooking a potential Sands Miami site on the land known as the Miami World Center, a cluster of parking lots and night clubs a short walk from the AmericanAirlines Arena.
