History of the fiasco.

As you may remember, the Nevada GOP convention recessed (abruptly and in violation of convention and party rules) with only 9 delegates being elected to the national convention due to Ron Paul's success in receiving 7 of the 9 delegates. We have 22 remaining to elect. Many delegates (including myself) are returning to Reno tomorrow to attempt a quorum to resume business and finish what was started.
Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

7am pacific time is when doors open. If I get access to power like I think I'll have, i'll turn on the cam as soon as possible after that. Maybe earlier if I get confirmation on the power.

if no power, i'll save my batteries for when it starts at 9am
Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

FYI, I'm posting video of the event here. I'm progressively adding more of the event, so it's just the welcome for now. But expect more in a few hours.

What's the bottom line. Travelling a lot for work right now and video is hard to get on the horrible connection I have.

Well, it's tough to explain, but essentially...

We first reconvened by outlining that day 1 of the convention was recessed illegally per RNC, NVGOP and Roberts Rule. Since the recess was invalid, we were a still in convention.

We then outlined how the credentials report was illegally submitted. It was claimed by the original chair that when the credentials report was submitted we were operating under no rules. Instead, per RNC, NVGOP rules, if we have no rules, we are to fall back on the rules of the prior convention. Since those rules outlined a different credentialing procedure than was followed, the origninal credentials report was invalidated.

Since the original credentials report was invalid, it must be resubmitted and approved by the body. The credentials chair submitted the only known list (which was of those in attendance of our Day 2 convention) and that was approved.

We then were able to operate with a quarum of 100%.

We then reaffirmed all of the action that was taken day 1 illegally (due to an invalid credentials report) so that no business completed on day 1 would be invalidated. As part of that we also reaffirmed the votes as cast for the 9 congressional district delegates.

We then completed the business that was incomplete from Day 1 including voting for the remaining 22 delegates.

Out of the 31 delegates, it looks like Ron Paul took 25 or so.

The convention was then recessed and closed in such a way that all further business of the convention for the year would be illegal.

I was completely impressed with the thought and preparation that went into not only following RNC and NVGOP rules to a T, but in laying out the legality of the Day 2 reconvene.

There is no legal reason that the Day 2 reconvene should be thrown out in St. Paul in September, but the RNC could still violate their own rules and screw us over.

With the whole thing on tape and rules followed so well, such action from the RNC would be very transparent.
Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

"The Great State of Nevada suubmits 6 votes for John McCain and 25 votes for the next president of the United States, RON PAUL!"

He he.
