Evangelical Leaders Claim Rigged pro-Santorum Vote at Pressler Ranch

Over the weekend, some 150 evangelical activists met to discuss GOP primary politics at the ranch of Paul Pressler in Benham, Texas.  Pressler, a retired Texas Court of Appeals judge, is best known for his role as the architect of cheap levitra the 1980s takeover of the Southern Baptist Convention that put fundamentalists in power and generic cialis professional ousted moderates from the denomination.

It’s not surprising to see Pressler inject himself into GOP politics.  Clearly, he enjoys the buy cheap cialis soft behind-the-scenes role of strategist and Kingmaker.

But trouble is brewing in the aftermath of the get-together at Pressler’s Benham Ranch.  The conservative Washington Times reports:

A civil war is breaking out among evangelical leaders over allegations of a rigged election and ballot stuffing at a Saturday gathering of religious and social conservatives.

At the meeting about 150 religious conservative activists at the Benham, Texas, ranch of Nancy and Paul Pressler, Rick Santorum supporters claimed the former Pennsylvania senator was chosen on the third ballot as the consensus candidate to try to stop Mitt Romney’s march to the Republican presidential nomination.

The meeting was called to avoid a continued division within social conservatives’ ranks.

What’s up?  Well, according to cialis cheap no prescription the Washington Times, some pro-Newt Gingrich evangelicals are now “accusing Catholic participants of conniving to rig the vote”!!!

Here’s more:

They said they were conned into leaving after the second ballot on Saturday. They said pro-Santorum participants held a third ballot which Mr. Santorum won with more than 70 percent of cheapest generic cialis the vote — far higher than the propecia 1 mg on sale nine-vote margin he won on the first ballot.

“My view is that the vote was manipulated,” said a prominent social conservative who asked not to be named.

Now, a prominent evangelical political organizer is saying to others confidentially he has evidence that in a least one instance a participant was seen writing Mr. Santorum’s name on four separate ballots and putting them in the ballot box.

These pro-Newt Evangelicals – interestingly described as both “evangelicals” and “fundamentalists” by the Washington Times – are calling for a RECOUNT!

Of course, this is not the first time that Paul Pressler has been linked to allegations of voter fraud.  John Baugh, Texas Baptist layman and founder of the Sysco Corp., devoted a chapter titled “Voting Fraud” in his book Battle for Baptist Integrity to these allegations of voting irregularities.  Former Southern Baptist leader Grady Cauthen chronicled additional fraud allegations in his book What Happened to the Southern Baptist Convention? (For more background, see here)

No word yet on onlinr tramadol whether Pressler and cialis pfizer online other organizers will publicly deal with these allegations.

The Brody File has the complete vote breakdown for the three ballots.
