It's not hard to live in a New York State of Election Fraud when the candidate whom you are campaigning for is Ron Paul.  It's not that hard for someone to start an ugly rumor, "Ron Paul has dropped out of the race" and get away with it on Primary Day in New York when you have the likes of the New York Times, New York Newsday, the New York Post, the Daily News and the Wall Street Journal ignoring your candidate as if he did not exist.  When you have little choice on mainstream news radio and WABC, home of the Conservative Demi-Gods, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Laura Ingram, et al, are ignoring your choice of Presidential candidate as if he weren't even running for President.  When you have your favorite cable news channels CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, ABC, CBS or C-Span skipping over your choice of candidate during debates, polls, and even when showing primary result facts by skipping over his face and percentage in favor of the next guy running behind him.  It's not hard to believe when you have High School history teachers leaving his face off the list of Presidential candidates along with the delegates they have won thus far (http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_gigi_bow_080130_is_ron_paul_running_.htm ).   So no, it is not hard to get away with a rumor and a lie and it did not come as too much of a shock when I got a phone call from one of my meet-up members, Ron Paul delegate Gabe Razzano, that his 76 year old mother called him from her polling place at Giblyn School in Freeport, Long Island to let him know that she could not vote for her choice of candidate, Ron Paul, because she was told he had dropped out of the race.

A few weeks ago I looked at my election card that arrived in the mail telling me where to vote. I got this card because I recently moved and had to reregister.  Right on the card it asks if I want to make $160 to work in a polling place on coming election days. I guess you don't have to have any formal training for this job or even have knowledge of whom is actually running for office? You just have to be a warm body??  Well there were quite a few warm bodies with no knowledge of the candidates all over New York State who apparently were fed the same rumor "Ron Paul has dropped out of the Race" because this rumor spread far and wide!   When Gabe Razzano went to the polling place on Tuesday evening where his mother tried to vote for Ron Paul he was told the same thing, "Ron Paul has dropped out of the race"  He was actually shown the display card which by law must hang on the wall and where they had crossed out Ron Paul's name along with Rudy Giuliani's.  Gabe did the only thing he could do, he called the police.  The Freeport Police arrived and asked what the problem was.  Gabe proceeded to tell them that his mother tried to vote for Ron Paul but was told she could not because he had dropped out of the race when in fact he had not.  The police officer, Sargent Essex, went out to his car, spoke to his superior and came back in to tell Gabe that there was apparently no problem as "Ron Paul had dropped out of the Race".   *Note, when Gabe went to pick up the police report yesterday, the police officer left off the fact that he said that Ron Paul had dropped out of the race.  Gabe has 3 witnesses that the police officer said this.

Well, Ron Paul has NOT dropped out of the race for President of the United States of America.  And Freeport Long Island is not the only place where this rumor spread....... when Steve Miller, a volunteer poll watcher for Ron Paul, called in a report that a woman was trying to vote for Ron Paul at her polling place, PS 180 in Brooklyn, when her machine malfunctioned. She was given an emergency ballot and was informed by multiple poll workers that she could not vote for Ron Paul because he was not on the ballot. ( http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/supertuesday/2008/02/ron-paul-backer-cries-foul-in.html) Eventually she was able to vote when they realized they were wrong.  But what about the people who tried to vote earlier?

 Eddie in Monroe County, New York, was told by a poll monitor in his county that Ron Paul had been taken off the list.  He knew better as he is also a grass-roots volunteer for Ron Paul but he wonders at other's who were easily convinced by these misinformed people?   Tim M in Marlton, NJ --our friendly next door state-- had a member of his meet-up come to the rescue by calling the appropriate agencies when a particular polling place in his town were telling the voters that they can't vote for Ron Paul because he had dropped out.  There are more stories. I started a thread on a Ron Paul message board and stories keep coming in but there are already youtubes all over the country of this sort of thing happening in many of the Super-Tuesday states. 

On closing....my fifteen year daughter was helping at her high school on Tuesday night for Super Tuesday.  When she came home I told her about what was going on with the Ron Paul election fraud situation and her exact words were "Yeah, I heard today from lots of my friends that Ron Paul had dropped out"........
