Paul Posse Threatens GOP Siege
While Minnesota law enforcement is focusing on anti-war and leftist demonstrations at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul next September, Minnesota Monitor reports that another group of political activists are threatening disruptions: the Ron Paul gang.
Supporters of the libertarian congressman want their man to get an invitation for a primetime speaking slot at the GOP conclave. Their appeals to Maria Cino, chief of convention arrangements, are not subtle. Said one:
"We will converge on Minnesota regardless of whether you invite Dr. Paul, but we would prefer to stay in hotels and attend the convention as members of the Republican Party rather than stay at the YMCA and protest outside as disaffected ex-Republicans. The choice is yours."
