It appears that Donna Brazile may have mixed up a 2015 with a 2016 document on which she rests her case in excerpts from her new book in which she alleges the DNC ‘rigged’ the primary in Hillary Rodham Clinton’s favor over Bernie Sanders. Various twitter threads, all less than a day old, refute the primary narrative being put forth in the media, and several of the most notable are contained herein, for your perusal and judgment.
The first, by a presumed attorney, self-described as a “commercial litigator”, a/k/a @WalktheTalkBern, lays out the case on twitter, & has called for Donna to respond, but has not heard from her. Check the first tweet (on twitter) for the whole thread; the majority of the most pertinent ones are here, and that same pattern repeats below:
A link goes to wikileaks there, if you want it, check the tweetstream; I won’t link to rus sites, as I’m Ukrainian ethnically, and won’t sully my own PC with rus treachery, even real data documents are hacked.
Also, another woman, Elizabeth Rogers, a/k/a @humorlessRants talks about HFA (Hillary for America) with receipts, and makes the case that Donna’s assumptions/calculations/suppositions are wrong.
i.e. State parties
Also, from one of HFA’s digital organizers:
Also, a television journalist with her own punditry show on weekend mornings on MSNBC, Joy Ann Reid, @JoyAnnReid, also discusses:
Then she goes on to explain mechanics of primaries & elections for a bit, which are not included.
Someone who responds to Joy also says that superdelegates “actually result in more rank & file folks getting to be delegates”.
I thought I would put together all of these tweet threads in the most influential progressive blog in response to so many voices echoing Ms. Brazile.
