Good stuff, Sleuth.

One question—is it even legal for his campaign to transfer funds for this little escapade? Seems shady, but then, we’re talking about Dnar Luap.

Also—he’s talking about charging all presidential candidates a $15,000
filing fee to be part of the caucuses. What was the filing fee for being on the primary ballot going to be?

(so, two questions!)

Good question and one that I have asked already and still waiting to hear an answer.
Usual filing fee in Kentucky for president is $1,000 for the primary and $500 for the general.
The caucus system and filing fees are ridiculous.

So for the privilege of being part of the Rand Paul Caucus adventure, primary candidates get a 1500% cost increase. Seems reasonable.

And the RPK somehow believes that going to the caucus system will lure other candidates to campaign in Kentucky.

The clueless logic is gobsmaking.

It looks like Rand Paul is borrowing a trick from his dad’s playbook.

Ron Paul consistently had downright horrible numbers in states that had primaries - typically never getting more than five percent of the total popular vote. However, in states that used the caucus method of nominating delegates, it was a certainty that the fanatical faithful would stack the caucus meetings, and in cases where they didn’t have numbers, would game the system with obscure rules that would muddle the voting process, and consequently greatly inflate his delegate totals .

An example of what to expect from the Rand Paul strategy:
