You know the GOP is doing bad things when the New York Yankees President Randy Levine is accusing party insiders of “foul” play in trying to keep front-runner Donald Trump from winning the party’s presidential nomination.
Levin suggested the GOP conduct they had been exhibiting was unsportsmanlike. Trump destroyed both Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Ted Cruz in the New York Primary last week, but Trump also grew his power base by calling out the GOP for creating a rigged system which caught a lot of ears.
Levin is a lifelong Republican and loves America just as much if not more than baseball. He can see what the GOP is doing, and he is not afraid to call them out for their actions.
Randy Levine knows a thing or two about fair play — and the president of the New York Yankees baseball club tells Newsmax TV it will be three strikes and out for the Republican Party if it attempts to stop Donald Trump from becoming the GOP presidential nominee.
“I think if that happens it would really be the end of the Republican Party. You would have so many disenfranchised and disaffected voters out there that it would just be very, very hard to put it all back together,” Levine said Thursday on “The Steve Malzberg Show.”
“He by far has the most delegates, yet there are some people in the party, people who I know, good people, who think that he shouldn’t get the nomination.
“[They think] for some reason you go to a convention and the delegates … can somehow forget all the people who went to the polls and voted in good faith in order to show their preference…. That’s not the way it should be. It should be one in sports on the field and it should be one at the ballot box.”
Levine — a deputy New York City mayor under Rudy Giuliani and principal associate deputy attorney general under the Reagan Administration — said he supports Trump and believes the billionaire developer will win the necessary 1,237 delegates to avoid a contested convention.

Did you know it was that many people who believed the system is rigged? I thought it would be a lot more after watching the GOP’s attempt to destroy the grassroots voice.
