Maine’s Electoral Funny Business

February 15, 2012 by  

Maine’s Electoral Funny Business

The mainstream media are working in lockstep with the Republican establishment to defeat Ron Paul.

The MSM reported the official tally in Maine’s caucus had Mitt Romney beating Paul 39 percent to 36 percent — but by only 194 total votes — on Saturday. But the “official” tally contained only 84 percent of the votes.

The vote does not include Washington County totals. That caucus — in an area Paul was expected to dominate — was canceled because of snow. Caucuses in other areas expecting as much snow as Washington County were not canceled, nor were other events in that county.

Maine State GOP Chairman Charlie Webster said caucuses that reported their results after Saturday would not be counted.

By denying Paul a victory — and a fourth straight defeat for Romney — the establishment is proving it is terrified of Paul’s message of liberty and doing its best to prop up a Romney campaign that is not resonating with conservatives.

This is not the first time the MSM and the establishment have conspired to prop up Romney in a caucus in which Paul was expected to do well. In Iowa, Paul was expected to finish first or second. But Republican insiders vowed that they would do all they could to thwart Paul’s campaign.

As a result, Rick Santorum came from nowhere to claim second to Romney, only to learn later he actually won Iowa. There was still evidence the caucus totals were inaccurate even after Iowa’s votes were tallied and made “official.”

But Paul supporters can take heart.
