For the past few weeks now the media has been putting pressure on Bernie Sanders to bow out of the race for the Democratic nomination. Shockingly, some have even taken to vetting his policies to aid in this endeavor. So, it may not come as a surprise when ABC’s and NBC’s Sunday shows failed to report about a controversial Democratic state convention in Nevada, which ending with Sanders supporters crying foul over the alleged misconduct by party insiders.
According to reports, Hillary Clinton supporters outnumbered Sanders supporters 1,695 to 1,662, which puts Clinton in the majority. It also turns out that 58 of Sander’s backers were excluded from the vote for various reasons. If they were allowed to cast a vote it would have allowed Sanders to have a majority representing him at the convention.
To make matters worse party insiders steamed rolled Clinton opposition by ignoring their adopted parliamentary procedures in the process. Cellphone video from the event shows a party official ignoring numerous and vocal calls for “point of order,” one of the highest priority motions described in Robert’s Rules of Order, which the convention was supposed to abide by. In simple terms, point of order allows a delegate to raise a concern they have about a procedure the body is taking.
I wonder if Bernie will deploy his Soros-thugs against the Democrat convention?
@Bill: Bernies wife will stop his old foolishness about free college shut down all colleges the same way the future FLOTUS has done. http://heatst.com/politics/breaking-burlington-college-closes-due-to-crushing-weight-of-debt-acquired-by-jane-sanders/
Stated as a non-profit she from 2004 to 2011 made damn sure of that.
In August 2011, The Daily Beast and Newsweek ranked Burlington College as the #1 School in the United States for Free-Spirited Students. In October 2013, Newsweek named Burlington College as among the ten colleges in the United States to have the highest rate of participation in student internships in their study field. Seems socialists ruin everything they touch.
@kitt: They must be salivating at the prospect of getting us to the point where Venezuela is today. Bernie is just the guy that can do it.
