Multiple Errors In Louisiana Caucus Creates GOP Challenge -
The Louisiana State GOP changed the rules at the eleventh hour to allow other candidates to file more delegates, even though there were plenty of delegates to compose full slates in each congressional district. At the time of the original January 10 deadline, Ron Paul had the largest number of delegates pledged to him. The party then changed the rules to give other candidates until January 12 to file more delegates.

In addition, due to mistakes by the Louisiana GOP, hundreds of voters were forced to file provisional ballots, including nearly 500 that could change the outcome of the election. According to the LA GOP, caucus locations relied on a voter list from November 1, 2007 or perhaps earlier despite the fact that under the caucus rules, voters need only have registered Republican before November 30, 2007.

Republicans changing the rules of the game mid-stream to shoehorn their favorite in? Tell me it ain't so! I mean, they never did this before, now did they?

Louisiana repubs want Paul b/c he's the most honest out of the "Rich White Man's Club".
