5/22/2012 at about 5:10 pm: Oklahoma GOP chairman Matt Pinnell evicted me from HQ bldg shortly after I entered building. This was after he told another republican that National non-delegates could enter building with video cameras. Apparently Pinnell & others in the building were shocked that I showed up. Pinnell indicated it was a private club, even though Im a card carrying republican since 1973 when I 1st joined Army during Vietnam War. Pinnell went so far as to ask me if I needed help in leaving building. I guess I was not moving fast enough. I went back to parking lot & told Conservative slate delegates & Paul supporters what happened. They were shocked. After Ron Paul folks got their cameras & live feed gear charged up about 20 minutes later they all (about 70 of them) marched down to the GOP headquarters & Pinnell did not say a word about the cameras nor about non-executive member delegates. Everybody (including me) got inside building for conservative slate caucus in another meeting room in the building.
I dont know why Pinnell had the nerve to mess w/me. But I’m not going to stand idly by & let him and any other personnel at Oklahoma GOP prejudice me as payback for me not prejudicing Ron Paul folks. If he has a problem with me not prejudicing Ron Paul folks, then he better get over it real quick.
The address of the Oklahoma GOP Headquarters where all this occurred is: 4031 N Lincoln Blvd, Oklahoma City, OK
