If you weren’t able to attend the Republican Party’s convention in Bowling Green this weekend, you’ve gotta catch up. Ron Paul’s supporters went batshit insane and the RPK’s chairman tried to fight back.
Visit PolitickerKY to read all about it and listen to audio of Paultards getting kicked out of the convention. Thank goodness Trey Pollard was there to catch it all on tape.
BOWLING GREEN — Supporters of presidential candidate and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) saw all of their efforts to influence the outcome of the Kentucky Republican convention thwarted during a noisy procedural stand-off with party leadership on the floor of Saturday’s event. Amid shouting and unrestrained debate, Republican Party of Kentucky Chairman Steve Robertson pushed through votes on convention rules, resolutions, and delegate slates while dissenting Paul supporters vocally argued parliamentary procedure was being bypassed.
Near the end of a tumultuous half-hour of confusion, some of the dissent moved to depose Robertson of his position while other Paul supporters were ordered out of the convention hall by the chair.
We hear Senate President David Williams also did his part to taunt the Paultards by playing along with them. If only we could have been a fly on the wall!.
