WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) - A former GOP state committeewoman who was rebuked for challenging the election of Maine's Ron Paul delegates says Paul's supporters have no interest in hearing her side of the story.
The state committee met Saturday in Waterville to approve several resolutions attacking Jan Staples, a long-time GOP activist and member of the national and state rules committees.
Jonathan Pfaff, who helped draft the resolutions, said the votes put the committee on record as saying the state convention elections were run fairly.
But Staples told The Associated Press on Sunday that there were multiple problems at the state convention and that she was obligated to point them out. She said Paul supporters in Maine are fired up but that there's "a lot of passion and not a lot of wisdom."
