A Colorado Donald Trump delegate left the convention hall in disgust Saturday after his name was removed from the ballot and replaced with that of a Sen. Ted Cruz supporter.

Larry Wayne Lindsey said in a video posted to YouTube that he’d been a Republican delegate representing Douglas County for 15 years, as well as a lifelong member of the party — but he’s had it.

“I’ve been a lifelong Republican all of my life. And this corrupt bunch of thieves is not even worth fighting for,” Lindsey said.

“I’ll find another party that believes more like I do. I’ve had it with them. But Jan Morgan, you’re not going to get away with this. I’ll find somebody to listen to me. I’ll find someway to hold you accountable for this.”

Questions first arose about the convention when “We did it. #NeverTrump” was posted on the Colorado GOP’s Twitter account. The tweet was later removed and the party claimed that the tweet was the result of a hacker.
