It appears that Trump supporters who have rallied behind Larry Wayne Lindsey have been schlonged.
Lindsey became an overnight sensation after the
Trump Report Drudge Report highlighted a video of the wannabe Trump delegate burning his Republican party registration after pro-Cruz political insiders cast him aside. The trouble with Larry’s story is that it is a big fat lie.
Larry did not attend the county caucus, which is where he needed to go in order to get elected as a delegate to the state convention.
Crista Huff, a Republican activist in Colorado writes:
“On Saturday, April 9, 2016, a man named Larry from Douglas County, CO slandered Douglas County (CO) Republicans on Facebook. In that Facebook post, Larry claimed that he went to his neighborhood caucus meeting on March 1st, at which a precinct captain named Jan Morgan had threatened him about being a Trump supporter, with the implication that Trump supporters would not be allowed to be delegates to the April 9th State Republican Assembly.”
After some digging, Crista “learned that this ‘Jan Morgan’ person is not a precinct person in District 3, and might not exist at all…” She writes,
“On Sunday, April 10th, quite a variety of Douglas County caucus attendees, delegates, and Republican Party volunteers were interviewed, to determine exactly what took place. The paper trail was examined, from Larry’s caucus meeting, and from the Douglas County Assembly. None of the gentleman’s story holds water…”
As reported at the Federalist:
“…according to a series of conversations with party officials, while Lindsey did show up to his precinct caucus and was elected as a delegate to the county assembly, he never showed up to the county assembly, or, at the very least, never signed in for his credentials. On Facebook, he erroneously claimed he’d been elected as a delegate to the state assembly from his precinct caucus, something that is not possible under the rules in Douglas County.”
NBC News actually reported that Larry was shut out likely due to his own “lack of familiarity with the process.”
“But a sign-in sheet from his county’s March 19 assembly, the second step of the process where delegates were elected to the statewide assembly, reveals that Lindsey never showed up to that meeting, and an alternate signed in for him instead.”
And when confronted with the fact that he did not attend the correct meeting, Larry Wayne Lindsey, who regularly posts Prntly articles headlining Ted Cruz’s alleged sexual exploits and supposed ineligibility, “admits he may have missed a meeting,” but following in the footsteps of his dear leader, shockingly blames one of the “many Cruz supporters who deliberately tried to mislead him on several occasions, including on dates and times of meetings.”
And perhaps Larry forgot that he did not attend the County Caucus, which he admitted to NBC that he “may have missed,” because he explicitly says on Facebook:
I attended the Douglas County Assembly, and then the County Caucus and was elected as a delegate.
Larry seems to be enjoying the spotlight, as he posted on Facebook:
“…I am going to be interviewed this afternoon by NBC News (national), tomorrow morning by MSNBC (national), and tomorrow afternoon, live on Fox New’s Varney and Company. And there are a slew of local radio talk shows, local TV news and national blogs who are wanting interviews with me!
Not sure how I am going to be able to fit everyone in, but I am going to try!
Colorado GOP, you started this, now I am going to finish it!”
Further, Lindsey got a personal call from Donald Trump.
The story is unfortunate, but this situation is clearly Larry’s own fault, just like Trump’s inability to grab delegates is his own fault. As noted by political writer Ari Armstrong, some Trump supporters are not happy with the Colorado GOP.
Numerous Colorado Republicans received death threats today for participating in a caucus system around since 1912. Stay classy Trumpists.
