Virginia’s GOP Primary Process Continues To Embarrass
This is really turning into a freak show with the late return of “THE PLEDGE”. RPV is demanding that voters in the Presidential primary sign one of their ridiculous pledges, and the SBE, chaired by longtime RPV fixture Charles Judd, voted to allow this. Unfortunately, as pointed out by Vivian Page, this is supposed to happen 90 days prior to the election date and may not be enforceable. Looks like another lawsuit coming down the pike.
The more I see of this whole process the more it stinks of an establishment push to help Romney at the expense of the other candidates. The always entertaining Tim Boyer started the ball rolling on the conspiracy theories, and Norm Leahy posts another statement from RPV after they said they wouldn’t be commenting because of litigation, that once again says that Romney’s petitions were treated differently than the others. This whole episode has been a huge embarrassment. Sure the failing candidate’s campaigns deserve ridicule as well, but Virginia looks like a total train wreck to the rest of the country with this “process”. What a mess, that is only getting worse by the day.
