"Count All the Votes" says Ron Paul Campaign to Louisiana GOP

I thought New Labour was the only party to be capable of serving up a dog's breakfast as haute cuisine. The Republican Party of Louisiana may have been preparing a starter for the meal in their conduct of the caucus. The Ron Paul Campaign is appealing for ALL THE VOTES to be counted now. All this talk of provisional ballots and the dubious nature of allowing more delegates to be filed at the last minute is unsettling.

As I've said before, not a recipe for export. Ron Paul campaign manager Lew Moore says, “The failure of the Louisiana GOP to properly determine who was and wasn’t eligible to vote threw this entire process into disarray. The party needs to correct this mistake by counting all the votes immediately, and releasing the results.” I say hear hear to that.

It surely must be the desired hope of all democratic (with a small "D"!) Americans that this year of all years gives an unflawed honest election result. It's no good running around the world checking up on Arabs and Africans, when the home grown variety of election may seem slightly off colour. We had the hanging chads fiasco in Florida before, we surely don't want smoke-filled room stitch-ups to enter into the spirit of the democratic debate.

Honesty and transparency!
