There have been numerous situations recently where supporters for Ron Paul for President in 2012 have cried foul against the mainstream media as well as the Republican Party.  Most recently, the Republican Party in Alaska refused to accept funds from Ron Paul supporters, even changing their funding structure, so that the delegates could not pay the $250required to attend the Alaska State Convention.
