When we saw that they were asking media to register, we thought that sounded great. But when we tried, the True the Vote folks told us they weren't credentialing journalists. Then they sat on our request to attend for long enough that when they finally got back to us the whole event was oversubscribed and they weren't letting any more people register. Anyway, we figured we'd send Ryan down anyway, figuring they'd probably let him attend. But the word seemed to be out to all the major attendees not to let Ryan in the hall under any circumstances.
