Martin said Wolfe won’t get any delegates for the convention because he had failed to file two documents, Martins said. Wolfe is “completely non-compliant. … He has not followed the procedures,” she said.
One document certifies compliance with the party’s affirmative-action plan for delegates, and the other identifies an “authorized representative,” she said. The documents were due in December and February, she said.
“The qualifying deadline is March 1,“ countered Wolfe. “I came in and paid my $2,500, I filled out a lot of forms for them that day. … I filled out one form after another,” he said.
The party officials “were just stunned — you could tell from the moment I signed those papers there would be animosity,” he said.
Democrats “are using the state machinery … [to] put on the primary, and now they saying it doesn’t mean anything,” to voters who want to support an alternative to Obama, Wolfe said.
“They’re trying to deceive every voter in Arkansas.”
