[Policy Mic] “Someone on the stage made a motion to adjourn. People started screaming ‘Nay.’ The convention was declared over. They took away the microphones and began turning off the lights.”
Such were the frantic proceedings at Saturday’s Arizona Republican State Convention, in the words of one shaken delegate from Scottsdale, Arizona. Nearly 1,000 Republicans gathered at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix to elect the state’s slate of delegates and alternates to the Republican National Convention.
Thanks to exclusive interviews conducted by Public Appeal, a clear picture is finally emerging of what transpired at yesterday’s convention. Ron Paul delegates came out in force and had a sizable presence on the convention floor. Nevertheless, the meeting descended into chaos on various occasions, amidst allegations of election fraud and disenfranchisement.http://www.policymic.com/articles/8284/ron-paul-supporters-allege-fraud-as-arizona-republican-convention-is-shut-down
