There were reports of chaos and confusion last weekend in Park County, Wyoming, where Rick Santorum won a delegate on a vote of 29-27. The Powell (WY) Tribune investigated what happened. And it's not pretty:
The Wyoming Republican Party’s Presidential delegate selection process is, when running smoothly, complex and potentially confusing. But at Park County’s Republican convention Saturday, it was much more so.
Park County Republican Party officials initially declared a Rick Santorum delegate to the Republican National Convention the winner after a poll of convention delegates, then realized he hadn’t received a majority and announced they’d made a mistake.
A second run-off vote was then held and narrowly went to a Mitt Romney delegate, but those results were then voided because of errors in the way ballots were distributed and confusing instructions that resulted in one man apparently voting twice.
The Santorum delegate then narrowly won a third vote and was declared the winner — only to have Romney’s campaign launch a legal challenge.
“It’s to be determined,” said State Republican Chairwoman Tammy Hooper of Park County’s delegate in a brief interview on Monday.
Hooper said the matter is being mulled by a committee of Republican National Committee officials who handle contested delegates and is out of her hands.
The article has all the gory details of the voting. And this the nomination goes into the summer, this won't be the only contested delegate we'll be writing about.
