I was at radio row at the RNC when I came across Bettyjean Kling and Robin Robinson. Their story is remarkable.
Bettyjean Kling of Pennsylvania and her friend Robin Robinson of Wilmington, Delaware, are PUMAs for Palin.
Staunch Hillary supporters with a long history of activism, they headed to Denver. Bettyjean purchased a 27′ RV and drove to Denver with her friend Robin Robinson as part of the “300″ to get Hillary a nomination and roll call at the Democratic National Convention last week.
They had worked on the Hillary campaign for months, Bettyjean in Pennsylvania and Robin in Delaware, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
But once they got to Denver they found delegates who told them that they were bein pressured to vote for Obama, and who were being told that they would never have a future in politics if they didn’t. “Their arms were twisted”, said Betty Jean.
During the primaries, the delegates told them, their uncommitted votes were changed for Obama.
Once in the convention, there was a legitimate roll call after the delegates had been made to change their votes.
We’ll talk about that at 11AM Eastern.
