DNC members reportedly considering last minute rule change to hurt Bernie Sanders at convention


The Democrat Party IS a party of organized corruption.  I by no means am a Bernie fan but this is alarming. Socialism is what Bernie is promoting and that's exactly, ironically, what he's getting a taste of.

DNC members reportedly considering last minute rule change to hurt Bernie Sanders at convention

 According to Politico, a small group of DNC members has begun discussing a plan aimed at harming Sen. Bernie Sanders' chances of winning the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

From Politico:

    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.

The DNC chose to relegate superdelegates to the second ballot following the 2016 convention because they were widely seen to hold too much power.

That is because, despite Sanders' overwhelming popular support, Hillary Clinton handily won the party's nomination in 2016 due to the majority of superdelegates backing her campaign. Giving the superdelegates — which the DNC now calls "automatic delegates" — less power means voters have more say in who wins the nomination..........

I am now hearing that the Sanders campaign sent workers to every caucus to record the live results.

The DNC was unaware of this. When their early tallies did not match the recorded results from campaign workers, his campaign had 5 lawyers contact the DNC. Now they’re meeting.
