I know there are some of you who are willing to do what it takes to win but you want to make sure you do so with character and integrity. Thereâs a line you donât want to cross. You are fine going up to that line and doing whatever you can that is within bounds but you donât want to cross that line and I am totally with you on that.
I am going to walk you through this faux outrage story regarding Ben Carson and Ted Cruz. Iâm going to walk you through a timeline but before I do, I need to make sure you know what life is like at an Iowa Caucus. Iâm on Team Cruz. I was one of the precinct captains in one of the larger precincts in Central Iowa where I live in a Des Moines suburb. I received no e-mail. I understand an e-mail went out but I didnât receive one from the Cruz campaign encouraging me to address the rumors that Carson was dropping out.
When you have turnout where 60,000 people you donât have room for show up across Iowa to vote, itâs really hectic. At my caucus site, I counted over 500 people were there yet only 291 of them were registered to vote. We had onlookers. We had observers. We had media. I just had somebody from another part of the state tell me that their precinct turnout was up 60 percent from 2012. Our infrastructure was overloaded.
Even if this was planted by the Cruz campaign (and it wasnât), and even if it was something they plotted to do to take down Ben Carson (and we are going to show you that it wasnât), it could not have been successful because of the hectic nature of what went on all across the state of Iowa with this surge of voters.
I talked to a business owner in Des Moines who knows Rick Santorum and spoke with him at his precinct site. He said he got an alert on his phone that said Carson may be dropping out. He said he took it to Rick Santorum and asked him if he thought this was something he should mention as a Cruz guy. You know what Rick Santorum told him? He said Ben Carsonâs voters should absolutely know about that because they should want their votes to count.
In my precinct, I did not have Internet access in the gym I was in.

Let the outrage continue (for some) because he took down their man Trump in Iowa and they're lashing out, but it will be over the TRUTH that they continue this stupid crap.
Well if the Douche says so, who are we to disagree?
This is now found to be SOP for Cheater Cruz.
You may think it’s not important, but how is it fake if Cruz admitted it?
I’ll tell you what’s fake -
all the Freepers who for years have bitched about voters being sleazed and slimed and manipulated -
Now are all of a sudden ok when THEIR guy does it.
Trump has helped expose so many frauds. St. Cruz being one of them. How sad to see the hypocrites in Freeperville be so proud that their guy cheated,,after having so long pretended that mattered.
I am on the verge of using ALL-CAPS on pro-Trump threads because of it.
But I’ll refrain from doing so, and take the high road.
“In my precinct, I did not have Internet access in the gym I was in.
Well then Steve, you’re one of the people being called stupid by the St. Cruz team who gasped how could anyone be fooled, all they had to do was check their phone/internet?
It would have died down by now, if the ‘good doctor’ would stop stirring the pot day after day. He travels from reporter to the next reporter venting his tales of woeful betrayal.
That’s breaking? Carson is breaking that story again? Oh wait, no,,it’s your attempt at deflection.
Did you even read the article, or just come here to complain about Cruz?
If not I suggest you do, then get back to me.
Aw, thanks for allowing us all to witness you patting yourself on the back.
Yes, damn him for being upset that he was cheated. SSSSSHHHH! Cheating is only bad when anyone but St. Cruz does it.
Wow getting irony... the old Free Republic is BACK!!!!
Yeah and this after the supposed “Christian” Doctor accepted Cruz’s apology. Real Christian thing to do, keep bashing and complaining, stirring the pot/s
I voted for Cruz twice in Texas. I know full well how to read. You will be the last person I take a suggestion from.
Well until you actually back up your B.S. with facts, you have no credibility my friend.
In other news, 0bama proposing to impose a $10 per barrel oil tax...
If it was fake, it wouldn’t be a controversy.
how petty and childish, but you have the freedom to type what ever you want and make such remarks.
Have a nice day! FRiend.
