Trump Supporters Lash Out Against 'Rigged' Delegate Process
It was possibly going to be one of the last things Larry Wayne Lindsey ever did.
At 66, with stage four colon cancer, Lindsey was determined to become a delegate at the Republican national convention in Cleveland this July — representing Donald J. Trump.
"This election was so important to me," he told NBC News Monday, getting emotional. "Facing my cancer and knowing my time is limited, just to leave a better place for my wife and kids."
Instead of going to the grand ol' party, Lindsey feels he was misled and shutout of the process by "pro-Cruz" officials, and took to social media over the weekend to vent his frustration — by burning his Republican registration papers.
