    The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign condemned today the efforts of the Alaska Republican Party and its chairman Randy Reudrich to disenfranchise Paul and other non-Romney delegates to the party’s upcoming state convention. In doing so, the Paul campaign also announced that it will utilize all legal tools at its disposal to prevent or reverse the state party’s illegal efforts to omit non-Romney delegates to the convention.

    The state party-initiated conflict in this regard is especially worrisome and politically sensitive as the Paul campaign believes it won a significant portion of delegates at the Alaska State House district conventions already held. The Paul camp anticipates that its delegate tally at the upcoming state convention will increase as supporters of former candidate Rick Santorum – including fellow prolife supporters – defect to the Paul camp or become non-Romney delegates to the Republican National Convention to be held late August in Tampa, Florida. In light of this, the issue has national party and political implications because it affects the conversation that will occur in Tampa over whether constitutionally-limited government and an authentic commitment to the sanctity of life will prevail over the status quo.

    The Alaska Republican Party state convention is set to be held from April 26th-28th, and all previous communications to would-be delegates have stated that a delegate fee of $250 would be accepted up until the convention registration deadline, which is 2:00 p.m. Alaska Time on April 26th. However, on Monday the 16thstate party chairman Randy Reudrich called a state committee meeting at which he stated that delegate fees would be accepted no later than 48 hours from the time of the meeting, which would be Wednesday, April 18th. However, on Tuesday the state party said that delegate fees had to be paid by 6:00 p.m that evening. As individual delegates and campaigns scrambled to pay delegate fees, the state party erected bizarre and allegedly extra-legal obstacles in front of Paul, prolife, and other non-Romney delegates, and communications between self-identifying non-Romney delegates and state party personnel degraded.

    One example of the state party trying to frustrate Paul delegates was in exactly when and how delegates could remit their $250 fee. Acceptable methods of payment ranged from online credit card payment on the state party website – although the link to such had been inexplicably removed – to personal checks that were later said to be unacceptable, to money orders that in at least one case were termed unacceptable and returned. The state party, the Ron Paul campaign argues, capriciously moved its payment deadline and modified its acceptable ways of paying the $250 delegate fee expressly to frustrate Paul delegates and in general any delegates outside the tight circle of party-sanctioned non-Romney delegates.

    ALASKA GOP MODIFIES REQUIREMENTS

    New Post at Daily Paul says:

    "They are responding

    Submitted by Alaskan on Thu, 04/19/2012 - 14:29. Permalink


    From my email just a moment ago.
    All:
    In an abundance of caution and a desire to make sure that no FEC laws were being broken Chairman Ruedrich and the legal counsel of the Alaska Republican Party have crafted the following regarding collection of delegate fees. In my opinion the rules were certainly clear about the 10 day requirements and were it up to me they would have been enforced.

    Frank McQueary, Asst. Treasurer

    Some concern has recently arisen regarding the payment of delegate fees for next week’s Alaska Republican Party State Convention. Hopefully, this email will help to clear up any misconceptions.

    (1) The party will accept delegate fees until the close of registration at the convention. The convention hotel requires a count of attendees by the end of today, however, and so those paying their delegate fees after today cannot be guaranteed meals at the convention.

    (2) Payment of delegate fees may be made by personal check, credit card, or debit card. Cash, money orders, and corporate checks or credit cards may not be used to pay delegate fees.

    (3) Delegates must pay their own fees. Third parties may not pay delegate fees on behalf of a delegate (family members may pay from a family account), nor can they promise to reimburse a delegate for their fees.
