Humor Has It... that the Rules and Bylaws Committee of the DNC thinks we are going to let them get away with breaking their own rules, fraud, unfair reflection, and vote stealing, all scott free. Not while I'm living and breathing here in Michigan. NO!, HELL NO!, and OH HELL NO!
The infamous meeting on May 31, 2008 was a complete farce. But I do understand why the "votes" were allowed to go through to screw over both Michigan and Florida. I suspect there were enough people on the committee that thought if these idiots want to push insane and unethical resolutions that go completely against the Democratic voting principles well then let us just get them officially on record. The legal stepping stone to the coming downfall of the DNC.
After this travesty of justice Harold Ickes and Tina Flournoy made the following statement for Senator Hillary Clinton:
Decision on Florida and Michigan
by Maggie Williams, Campaign Manager
Today’s results are a victory for the people of Florida who will have a voice in selecting our Party’s nominee and will see its delegates seated at our party’s convention. The decision by the Rules and Bylaws Committee honors the votes that were cast by the people of Florida and allocates the delegates accordingly.
We strongly object to the Committee’s decision to undercut its own rules in seating Michigan’s delegates without reflecting the votes of the people of Michigan.
The Committee awarded to Senator Obama not only the delegates won by Uncommitted, but four of the delegates won by Senator Clinton. This decision violates the bedrock principles of our democracy and our Party.
We reserve the right to challenge this decision before the Credentials Committee and appeal for a fair allocation of Michigan’s delegates that actually reflect the votes as they were cast.
I'll be posting much more about this as the summer wears on. And we will take this to the convention in Denver. You didn't count my valid vote but you can count on this.
