So far we know numerous things were done by the Maine Republican Party Bosses to appear to save Mitt Romney from the embarrassment of losing four straight GOP state contests. Votes in many jurisdictions were “lost” or “mistakenly recorded”
This video is of just one of Maine’s indefensible violations, the administrative vote fraud directly engaged in by the GOP.
Will Washington State follow in their footsteps?
Washington State’s GOP has no rules governing any Straw Poll or protecting its process from the unscrupulous partisans in office, County Party officials who cheated in 2008. All over the Party they are asking us to “trust them” just one more time. Will they do the same as Maine and engage in vote fraud?
Will Washington Party officials count the votes openly, allowing observers or will they count the votes in secret – empowering fraud? Will the secrecy that envelopes everything the King County Party does prevail in 2012?
In 2008 and 2010 King County Chair Lori Sotelo used non-elected, appointed tellers to do the counting and REFUSED to allow them to be observed, instead counting in secret. Lisa Thwing, then 32nd legislative district chair, now WSRP Executive Board member, did the same thing, even when challenged. Insisting on making straw poll tallies in secret.
They are among numerous County Party officials who have cheated in numerous other ways, sometimes right out in the open, repeatedly violating State, County and National Republican rules to favor their personal choice Presidential candidate. In 2008 it was John McCain. In 2012 it will be establishment pick Mitt Romney.
