It completely supports the Santorum team’s contention. Saul Anuzis, who engineered the theft, lamely explained that a memo sent out that explained the rules in advance was “in error.” But MSNBC refutes that notion entirely:
But in an interview with NBC News three weeks ago — on Feb. 8 — Michigan GOP Chair Robert Schostak clearly stated that Michigan’s at-large delegates would be awarded PROPORTIONALLY.
“We start off with, after the penalty, 30 voting delegates. Okay? Each district-congressional district – you can win individually. So you have 14 districts you can win two delegates. That takes you to 28. Okay? The two at-large that remain, provided the individual candidate won at least 15 percent of the statewide vote – okay so with four candidates that’s likely to happen. Then they get awarded proportionally, those delegates, and then rounded to the nearest decimal point so there won’t be any half delegates or quarter delegates.”
Is it really worth it to the Romney team to so blatantly, well, cheat? For one delegate?!?
