Maine Delegates Walk Out!

September 7, 2012 in 2012 RNC, Press Release

The Maine Delegation: United We Stand

August 21, 2012 in 2012 RNC, Challenge, Endorsements, Media

Ron Paul supporters across the State have overcome numerous obstacles in order  to where we are today. Disenfranchisement,  voter fraud,  harassment from the Party elite, dirty tricks by the Romney Campaign and repeated attempts to obstruct the will of the assembly and derail the business of the convention.

Despite the odds, we elected a Convention Secretary,  Convention Chair (by 4 votes), National Committee Man and Woman, 4 out of 4 National Electors20 out of 20 primary delegates, 20 out of 20 alternates as well as a power shifting share of new Liberty Minded State Committee Members - all thanks to  the hard work, sacrifice and dedication put forth by many Maine Patriots.

Since that time our duly elected delegates have been contested by two supporters of presumptive nominee Mitt Romney; who waited until the last possible moment to submit their 27 page challenge, claiming that the 40 pro-Ron Paul delegates and alternates were improperly elected at the state GOP convention in May. Even though many well known Republicans came out in opposition to the challenge, including Maine’s Governor Paul LePage who declared his intentions to boycott the Republican National Convention, if Maine’s rightfully elected delegation is not seated. Under the threat of being denied credentials, the RNC and Romney team have attempted to intimidate the delegation into signing political deals which would hinder them from representing the Maine republicans who elected them. The Maine delegation unanimously refused to compromise.

The RNC Committee on Contests found no evidence to support the challenge against the Maine delegation;  Instead, they changed their own rules — which previously required a ruling — in order to grant the contestants a second chance to retry their challenge.

As of August 21st, with just 5 days before the 2012 Republican National Convention, the Maine delegation is still unaware of their ultimate fate as they pack their bags.

More developments to come.

Maine Ron Paul delegates seek injunction against Republican National Committee

August 17, 2012 in Media

From the Maine Sun JournalScott Thistle, State Politics Editor

“Friday delegates Stavros Mendros, Brent Tweed and Matthew Mcdonald filed a request for an injunction with Belfast Superior Court.

It asks that the court rule against the Republican National Committee  and stop its process of investigating whether 21 Paul delegates from Maine were elected legally during the party’s state convention in Maine.

Mendros said the injunction notes the RNC was suppose to rule on the issue last Friday but instead asked for more evidence against the Paul delegates.

“We filed an injunction that basically states the RNC has no authority at this point,” Mendros said. “We were duly elected.”

According to Mendros the RNC was expected to rule on that complaint last Friday but instead asked for more evidence.

“They have to rule based on the evidence given to them in the complaint,” Mendros said. “They didn’t do that, they asked for more evidence. They can’t do that.  By asking for more evidence they are admitting they didn’t have enough evidence to rule against us which means the contest is over, they don’t get a second chance to bring in more evidence.”

National GOP Changes the Rules on Maine’s Delegation

August 15, 2012 in 2012 RNC, Challenge, Press Release

The RNC Committee on Contests found no evidence to support the challenge against the Maine delegation on Friday, yet failed to issue a ruling. Instead they changed their own rules, which previously required a ruling, in order to grant the contestants a second chance to retry their challenge.

Portland, Maine August 15, 2012 - The RNC Committee on Contests found no evidence to support the contest against the Maine Delegation on Friday, yet failed to issue a ruling. Instead, they changed their own rules, which previously required a ruling, in order to grant the contestants a second test to retry their challenge.

“The RNC Committee on Contests could not find any evidence of fraud,” said Mark Willis, the incoming National Committeeman for Maine who holds a Doctor of Law Degree from George Mason University.

“According to their own rules, the RNC was obligated to recommend that the Maine delegates be certified,” Wilis added. ”Instead, the Committee on Contests had to create new rules to give the challengers a second chance. Such a decision is unprecedented, violates party rules and violates the due process rights of the duly elected Maine delegation. In a court of law, this challenge would have already been thrown out and dismissed.”

“It really makes me doubt the integrity of the process at the RNC,” added John Logan Jones, a National Delegate and the Republican candidate for State Representative in Falmouth. “The burden of proof is on the contestants and they failed to meet that burden. The RNC should have left it at that and certified Maine’s delegation. Instead they are reaching over backwards, changing their own rules to accommodate the Mitt Romney Campaign.”

“Over 2500 duly elected Maine Republican delegates went to Augusta and we had a democratic election,” added Ashley Ryan, incoming National Committeewoman for Maine. “The RNC and the Mitt Romney Campaign cannot invalidate Maine’s voice simply because they didn’t like the outcome.”

National GOP keeps Maine Delegates in Limbo

August 13, 2012 in 2012 RNC, Challenge, Press Release

PRESS NOTICE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: National GOP keeps Maine Delegates in Limbo

Augusta, Maine, August 10, 2012 – Governor Paul LePage has declared his intentions to boycott the Republican National Convention, taking place in Tampa later this month, if Maine’s rightfully elected delegation is not seated.

LePage’s statement is in response to the recent contest against the Maine Delegation filed by Jan Staples and Peter Cianchette, which aims to unseat 40 elected delegates and alternates and replace them with delegates that support Mitt Romney.

Conservative talk show host, Ray Richardson, reported on Friday morning, “The Governor of Maine, Paul LePage, in a conversation five minutes ago said that if they do not seat the Maine Delegation at the RNC, he will not go. These folks need to be seated.”

Brent Tweed, the elected Chairman for the Delegation, thanked the Governor for his support. “We were all rightfully elected by Maine Republicans to serve as delegates to the National Convention. I am glad to know that the Governor stands with us. We look forward representing the Republicans of our great state of Maine with dignity and respect in Tampa.”

“The RNC Committee on Contests was scheduled to make an initial ruling on the contest this past Friday,” says incoming Republican National Committeewoman and Maine National Delegate, Ashley Ryan. “Instead, they punted the decision to the Credentials Committee, which won’t meet until all the delegates are already on their way to Tampa.”

“The committee on contests could not find any evidence of widespread fraud,” added Mark Willis, incoming National Committeeman. “The fact is 2500 duly elected delegates went to Augusta and did what they were supposed to do. A handful of people are creating unnecessary stress and strains on the entire GOP because they didn’t like the outcome.”
