Riley has more on the processing of delegate applications for the 51st District convention over at Virtucon:
We’ve received some additional information on some of the convention delegate filings for the 51st Dist. GOP convo. Among the filings said to have been accepted were three from one family where the signatures were all the same — not the same handwriting mind you — one person signed three forms with his own name. When contacted, this individual admitted to signing all three forms, yet apparently all three were still allowed.
I’m hearing rumors about a number of problems with delegate forms submitted by the Faisal Gill campaign. Some of these may just be honest mistakes, but the number of these problems is far above the norm. My understanding is that more than one hundred of Faisal Gill’s delegates have already been disqualified, and questions regarding a substantial number of those that remain still haven’t been resolved. Either there’s a problem with attention to detail here, or something more insidious going on.
Also of note is that Gill’s request to allow unqualified voters to submit voter registration applications up until the day before the convention has been disallowed by RPV. A person signing a delegate form which says that they are a legal and qualified voter who then still needs to register to vote after the fact clearly isn’t qualified to participate, and I can’t imagine anyone rationally claiming that they are. With some of the nuttiness we’ve seen in the past few days, maybe that kind of illogic shouldn’t be surprising.
