Approximately 1,500 precinct delegates from seven legislative districts across Pierce County, WA gathered Saturday to elect delegates to the state Republican convention.
**Update** We have received this photo of the proposed “Unity Slate,” Alex Hayes tried to persuade Washington voters to choose. The slate definitely appears to convey the slate is endorsed by Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.
In this undercover video, Alex Hayes decried dishonesty in politics while attempting to deceive Santorum supporters into casting ballots for Romney delegates. This is no way to treat so many hundreds of grassroots conservatives involved in politics for the first time. His brazen attempt to fool those who aren’t professional politicos such as himself into handing over a massive win to his preferred candidate is disturbing.

The big question now is whether Romney campaign officials will disavow their surrogate’s behavior at the Pierce County Republican Convention. While claiming to be “pretty blunt” and “honest,” he failed to disclose his affiliation with this organization that already endorsed Mitt Romney. Claiming Santorum’s campaign prefers its supporters elect a Romney majority to the convention represents a new low by the entrenched establishment. Do they really think grassroots voters are this gullible? Apparently so.
