The ‘Paulians’ disrupted our district caucus here in Wisconsin by attempting to confuse, amend, and oppose almost every resolution. Their disruptive actions appeared to be both coordinated and premeditated and accomplished nothing except to waste everyone’s time and build lasting resentments toward them and their causes.
Towards the end of the convention several delegates had questions about what went on. The chair informed us that in 1988, the Pat Robinson supporters took over the convention, and the party organization held the rump convention. It has hurt the party since that time, and they didn't want a repeat of 1988.
