The first is an article in our local newspaper in Howard County, Indiana. New people (including me) that want to be delegates were denied, possibly unfairly, maybe more in my case. This chairman felt the need to make Ron Paul's call for delegates seem like a shady act. He put this in the paper before a "neutral" election board ruled against us. I do not have the money or resources to pursue this otherwise, which might be not such a strong case. So instead I wrote a counter article. Please spread this around as I know this is not an isolated incident. Thank you.

You should post this in the Grassroots Central. As a Marshall County Indiana resident, I'm lost on what to do as well.

Here's a copy that wend up in GRC, feel free to speak up in that thread, and welcome to the forums.


I saw Jenny 1903 posted this else where. It was not getting much attention. I think it would be better in Grassroots.

Thank you for seeing my post and putting it somewhere where more could see it. I am new to posting on any forum, I am not overly technology savvy. I do have a strange update. I was told and also received in the mail shortly after this, that I was denied to be a delegate due to the fact I had never voted. Yet a few days ago, (our Indiana primary being the 8th), I received a letter from The local Republican Party and Craig Dunn the chairman himself, telling me about running as a delegate, what I had to do if I was elected, the fees, etc. Since this Republican Party is being widely acknowledged as being liars to Ron Paul supporters, we aren't just taking this letter as being a clerical error. They may have sent that to me to avoid a lawsuit since my challenge to be a delegate should have been dropped with the filing date being the day before it was signed, possibly making that challenge invalid. I am the only one in my county that I'm aware of that was challenged, denied, and still received a letter. Wish me the best of luck fellow R3VOLUTIONISTS...if nothing else I'm still in the running for Precinct Committeeman. We will stop this corruption at the very core. To fellow supporters, do not give up, that is EXACTLY what they want, get involved regardless.
