Jefferson County GOP Caucus Update

7 Apr

I wrote about the March 17 county caucus here. Much controversy and chaos occurred at the meeting, at which the establishment GOP types in the county Central Committee appeared to corrupt the proceedings in favor of a pro-Santorum slate of delegates. The Paul and Romney campaigns have filed protests with the Missouri GOP. In addition, county resident and caucus attendee Casey Pearcy filed a challenge. The letter he submitted is below, and it summarizes the complaints with the way the caucus was administered quite well.

This video also sums up the main allegations:

Here’s the challenge letter from the Romney/Paul campaigns. It includes a narrative of the events at the caucus. This report also sums up the proceedings. According to the latter report, the State Credentials Committee will hear the Jefferson County challenge on April 12. The Congressional District Conventions are scheduled for April 21 and the State Convention will be June 1-2.
