Maine GOP says some vote counts reportedly ended up in the spam folder

There’s a chance Ron Paul won Maine after all.

Maine’s republican party announced Friday that it will recount votes cast in the state’s non-binding GOP caucus, which initially showed a 194-vote victory for Mitt Romney.

The state’s GOP chairman Charles Webster released a statement Friday announcing the party is working “diligently to contact town chairmen throughout Maine” to independently verify the results from each of the counties’ caucuses.

Webster told Politico that the state party made clerical errors during vote tabulation Saturday, and that some E-mailed results filtered into a spam folder. [Up Close, Romney Wins Over Converts.]

Webster has said he doubts newly counted votes will change the outcome of the caucus.

The Paul campaign, which invested heavily in the Maine caucus, admonished state GOP officials for cancelling the Washington county caucus because of a snowstorm.

“That’s right. A prediction of 3-4 inches—that turned into nothing more than a dusting—was enough for a local GOP official to postpone the caucuses just so the results wouldn’t be reported tonight,” spokesman Gary Howard wrote in an E-mail to supporters.

“This is MAINE we’re talking about. The GIRL SCOUTS had an event today in Washington County that wasn’t cancelled!” he wrote. [See a slide show of who's in and out for the GOP in 2012.]

Washington county plans to hold its caucus Saturday, but Webster has said repeatedly the population is so small that he doubts it will change the results.

It’s unclear whether the party’s clerical errors and an additional county caucus will yield a victory for Paul, but a win would mark the second incorrectly called Republican contest in the 2012 election.

CNN reporter Dana Bash receives some choice words from Ron Paul supporters who object to her consistently negative and biased coverage of Dr. Paul during the 2012 presidential primary race. The title of this film references the blowback that Sean Hannity received during the 2008 race. No actual snowballs were thrown ;)

All you have on MSM is a bunch of poor quality commentators pretending to be journalists.
