Super Secret Scheme to Slip in Romney: Cause Delegates aren't bound

Much hullabaloo is afoot about the fact that the plots & ploys to 'Dump Trump' are no, all over. As proof of point, The Donald has now nominated the lessor known Pence for VP. Already, Politico (who spelled Pence as Spence, in the URL) makes note that the brand ne Trump/Pence TP logo is sexually suggestive (acutally, they're more than, er, spot on - it looks like a handling, to me). Meanwhile, many pundits claims Romney's quest is a goosey over cooked.

But - could they be - all wrong?

All Delegates are Unbound

Let me explain.

In a recent, prior thread, titled " It's Official -The Hill: RNC Delegates are Unbound " - As pointed out by the Congressional insider "The Hill", Scholars Curly Haughland and Sean Parnell, in their bok "Unbound: The Conscience of a Republican Delegate", the well versed in the legal particulars, broke down the history of pledged and unpledged delegates, as far as the RNC is concerned.

According to a Rolling Stone quote on Amazon


Unbound: The Conscience of a Republican Delegate
makes a powerful case that delegates to the Republican Party convention are not bound to vote for any particular candidate based on primary and caucus results, state party rules, or even state law. Co-authors Sean Parnell and Curly Haugland document nearly 240 instances at past conventions in which delegates invoked their right to vote their conscience.

"All that matters are rules, and the RNC’s rules, according to Haugland — who has pored over them with painstaking attention to detail — offer a surprisingly large amount of leeway when it comes to how the 2,472 Republican delegates must act in Cleveland come July."

— Rolling Stone, May 11, 2016

This notion of delegates being able to vote their conscience is also corroborated by other online articles, such as The National Law Review story - titled " Not a Single Republican Delegate Is ‘Bound’ to Donald Trump "

The article states

Those who claim otherwise would evade
responsibility for his nomination.


Specifically:

Let’s begin with a simple proposition: As a matter of law and history, there is not a single “bound” delegate to the Republican National Convention. Not one delegate is required to vote for Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, or any other individual who “won” votes in the primary process. Each delegate will have to make his or her own choice. They — and they alone — will choose the Republican nominee.

All they have to do, to blindside The Donald, is to cajole enough people, to fail to step up and vote, for the 1st round. If Trump falls just 1 single, solitary, vote, short, of the 1237

BINGO!

A new round of civil, {UN}convential - war - will begin.

That's when Mitt can come in (in case no one has noticed, Mitt's not said chit, on Twit, for dayzzzz).

Just sayin.....

4. Dump Trump movrments main gal has...reportedly..failed

 

But..according to the scholars who wrote the book and other corroborating pieces (such as the one above) the effort is wacked....because they are unbound in the first place.

It is real strange that Mitt Romney is so absent from the discussions; because he can't let ppl know where he is...right now.

And his Twitter page is dead silent. Even about France

We'll soon see.
