Leading Democrats Continue to Destroy the Party
The new leader of the Dim party in California is the same man that told the audience to “Shut the F*ck Up” earlier this week. Big surprise, his election was controversial — and has brought out charges of ballot stuffing, and a lack of ID!, from other Dims.
You can’t make this stuff up.
If the national mainstream media was reporting on how dysfunctional — the Democratic Party really is at the top level – the caucus size would be even more of an emergency.
This is from Politico, so the truth had to be much worse.
SAN FRANCISCO — Supporters of the losing candidate in a bitterly disputed election to serve as chair of the California Democratic Party say they’ll begin a detailed audit of the votes on Tuesday.
The move comes after protests, allegations of ballot stuffing and bitter disputes after votes at a weekend party convention.
Longtime party operative Eric Bauman won the chairmanship of the California Democratic Party over the weekend — but his victory was marred by complaints of ballot-stuffing and floor protests. Backers of the Kimberly Ellis, a favorite of the “Berniecrat,” activist wing of the party — say efforts to scrutinize the votes will begin immediately.
The unprecedented effort to examine the documentation of the disputed state party’s election results was announced by outgoing California Democratic Party chair John Burton at the close of a raucous state Democratic convention this weekend.
Ellis, the former director of Emerge America, a women’s political organization, lost the election by a narrow margin of 62 votes out of 3,000 cast. Her loss immediately set off protests from hundreds of her backers, many of whom charged that there were irregularities that included allowing voters to cast proxy ballots without proper ID.
Some Democratic insiders are already worried the dispute has potential to do long-term damage, creating a rift in the state party as it heads into crucial 2018 elections, where as many as nine GOP House seats could be at stake in California.
