Delegate Dennis Rothacker from FL opened this story when he sent the following urgent text message:

*"We just had a group shot of all the RP delegates and alternates, the secret service came and started searching everyone and took anything RP related. We got it on video though..."*

Today at the Republican National Convention, as the Ron Paul Delegates were taking a picture in front of the model White House inside the Convention Center, they were surrounded by Secret Service which proceeded to search the bags of all the delegates. They took everything related to Ron Paul including signs, buttons, videos, slim jims, cards, even books. "This is an obvious and outrageous violation of our first amendment rights" said
Nathan Hanson, attorney and Delegate from MN.
Alternate Delegate Dennis Rothacker from Florida said "We were done taking the picture when Secret Service started walking into the room and surrounded us. There were about 30 of them. When they searched my bags they took my Ron Paul sign and turned a deaf ear to my complaints, they just walked away."
Another delegate said that the people surrounding them were wearing red McCain hats and identified themselves as police to him.

Delegate Ron Warner from Fairbanks, Alaska added that as he was walking into the convention center today with about 15 Revolution Manifesto books, 20DVD's for Delegates, 20 Ron Paul buttons and a handful of other things, he was stopped by security which called on upon an apparent supervisor, who directed all the materials to be confiscated. She told him, "You can't bring that in here, this is McCain territory. "

Dennis, Ron and the other delegates report being openly followed by Secret Service. Dennis says that delegates known to support Ron Paul had been openly monitored from the beginning of the convention, but that now they are being shadowed constantly by these people.
There are also reports of delegates being approached by security and told that they will be summarily thrown out if they leave their assigned chair, and are advised not to walk around.

Delegate Corey Sax From MN's district five was on the floor and he witnessed six oral votes for Ron Paul out of a forty something total delegation. These votes were counted, but not read aloud by the RNC in the count or shown in
the screen. He and others said that they thought there was an obvious attempt to suppress the votes casted for Ron Paul.

Corey says that Ron Carey and Tim (last name missing) witnessed the RNC tell them that they had technical difficulties and that was the reason for not reading the votes for Ron Paul. He says that the same happened to the Texas delegation and the delegation from other states. He clearly stated that illegal under-counting of delegates votes was going on across many states
delegations. It appears that the number of votes casted for Ron Paul were not read aloud or posted on the screen.

Adam Weigold, Delegate from MN, reported that today he has been approached at least five times by other delegates at large who ask him to borrow his pass to go the bathroom. From his conversation with other delegates, he believes that this is part of an orchestrated effort because many of them have been approached. Without their pass credentials, they would not be able to claim their seat or remain at the convention.

Other delegates who gave interviews were Jeff Austin, from NC, and Nathan Hanson, a delegate and attorney from MN.

The delegates remain at the convention center till 10:30 or 11:00PM. They were planning to approach the media and demand that this obvious disregard for the first amendment and for their votes in a national US election for president be reported by the national media.

Delegate Thomas McMahon, Pledged Ron Paul Delegate for North Carolina's District 12 was present at the incident in front of the mock White House inside the Convention Center. He said that they were surrounded by "black, white and yellow hats." These colored McCain hats were worn by RNC personnel, who asked to the delegates to show the contents of their bags.
McMahon said that a fellow delegate from OK asked to see a security badge and refused to be searched. The RNC personnel then called an uniformed police officer who told the OK delegate that he had to consent to the search because he was on private property . McMahon added that in addition to the "colored hats" surrounding them, there were uniformed police officers, security guards, men wearing identifying Secret Service jackets, as well as personnel from the RNC Committee on Arrangement, . He says that he saw the S.S. observing the proceedings, but not conducting any searches.
Thomas McMahon added that the he voted for Ron Paul at the national convention. That the NC Republican party negotiated with the RNC to have the votes be read aloud and shown in the screen. He says that the RNC didn't read the Ron Paul votes aloud, and they claimed that the speaker system malfunctioned.
This adds North Carolina to the list of States in which the RNC claims that the speaker system "malfunctioned" at the exact time that Ron Paul votes were being read. So far this has been confirmed for Minnesota, Texas, and North Carolina.
The press may contact me for the phone numbers of the delegates to talk to them directly.
