LOL: DNC Plotting to Re-Introduce "Super Delegate" Voters to Screw Bernie Sanders Again

"Superdelegates" still exist, but they only get to vote from the second ballot onwards, if the first ballot does not produce a winner.

And the first ballot almost always produces a winner.

So, effectively: there really aren't superdelegates voting for the nominee.

As it stands.

But... the DNC is scheming to f*** Bernie Sanders again.

A small group of Democratic National Committee members has privately begun gauging support for a plan to potentially weaken Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign and head off a brokered convention.

In conversations on the sidelines of a DNC executive committee meeting and in telephone calls and texts in recent days, about a half-dozen members have discussed the possibility of a policy reversal to ensure that so-called superdelegates can vote on the first ballot at the party's national convention. Such a move would increase the influence of DNC members, members of Congress and other top party officials, who now must wait until the second ballot to have their say if the convention is contested.

"I do believe we should re-open the rules. I hear it from others as well," one DNC member said in a text message last week to William Owen, a DNC member from Tennessee who does not support re-opening the rules.


Owen, who declined to identify the member, said the member added in a text that "It would be hard though. We could force a meeting or on the floor."

What did those nice Bernie Sanders' staffers say...? Oh right: If Bernie doesn't win, "cities will burn," starting with the DNC Convention in Milwaukee.

Civil war in the Democrat Party?

please please please please please please

ohhhh please please please please please please please


Update: Now that the DNC's donor threshold for participating in debates has driven out the Candidates of Color (TM) from the race -- such as Cory Booker, Juliannnn Castro, and, uh, "Beto" O'Rourke -- the DNC is now rescinding any need for a certain amount of money raised from donors, permitting Michael Bloomberg into the next debates.
