Maine To Recount Caucus Votes

Limited Hangout for the corrupt repug primary process. They'll bow to pressure in inconsequential areas but maintain rigorous control over their fraudulent process in places that matter.

"Under severe pressure from Ron Paul’s supporters and other grassroots Republicans, the Maine State Republican Party reversed course and is planning to “reconfirm” the results from the state’s Feb. 11 caucus.

After receiving criticism regarding votes not included in the original tally, the Executive Committee met Thursday and agreed to confirm the vote counts with town chairmen and update the totals. The committee also voted unanimously to include results from the Washington County caucus, which was postponed for a week because of snowfall.

In past presidential election cycles, Maine has received little attention. This year, however, the state’s caucuses drew national interest as Ron Paul looked to the Pine Tree State for his first win and Mitt Romney looked to end a three-state losing streak.

When Romney edged out Paul in the vote by only 194 votes in the official announcement last Saturday evening, Paul and his supporters pointed to the Washington County postponement, as the Texas congressman expected to do well there. Many of his supporters suggested the postponement was intentional, arguing that 3 to 4 inches of snow is not a big deal for Maine and the local county chairman supports Romney."
