    The Maine GOP is saying they have already "chosen" a chairman for the State convention which is pretty interesting considering a vote has yet to have been held on the floor. Hmm....surely the morality police would agree that the GOP should follow the rules in the election process.:whistling:

    Below is a portion of an email that notifies delegates that the Maine leadership has "invited" Charles L. Cragin to preside as chairman over the Maine State Convention. I'm sure that Mr. Cragin is a wonderful man but surely Mr. Webster means "temporary chair" because again wouldn't the chairman have to be nominated and voted on from the floor?:whistling:

    There's always a temporary chairman at the start of convention, usually appointed by the committee. The problem arises when this temporary chairman tries to avoid giving up the chair if and when a vote happens and that temporary chair loses. We've already seen several chairman get sour when they get booted. So point is, this guy may be the legally appointed temp chair and there's nothing wrong with that. If he's challenged and cheats then bust his balls.

    We shall see, that's already been the case in Missouri.
