The ‘Inept’ Nevada GOP

Even the RNC says the sham process conducted by the Nevada GOP wasn’t legitimate:

A key Republican committee says it is troubled by the “ineptness” of the Nevada GOP and called the state party’s attempt to choose delegates for next week’s national convention “flawed, inadequate and unacceptable.”
A ruling from the Republican National Committee panel said the state party violated rules when it appointed, rather than elected, its group of 34 delegates and 31 alternates, according to a report obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday.
The RNC Committee on Contests was asked to review the delegates by a group of supporters of Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, who argued they were shut out of the delegate selection process. The Paul backers elected a separate delegation to the convention in St. Paul, Minn., which also was rejected by the RNC panel.

Of course, it should be noted that their idea of “compromise” consists of 4 Paul delegates and 30 McCain supporters, even though the Ron Paul supporters were poised to elect a majority when the state GOP broke its own rules and abruptly suspended their state convention.

    This should get more press. It is crazy what can happen in a “democracy” when there’s little accountability.

  2. John Bowery Says:

    The Nevada GOP officials were “inept” only in their inability to control the state convention and elect their handpicked slate of McCain delegates. The GOP national credentials committee chastised the Nevada officials only to the extent of sending them a signal that says, “If you can’t do a better job of suppressing the democratic process in your caucus process we’ll be forced to appoint all of your delegates from now on.”
