DC ballot filed day late, Robert Brannum filed a complaint after, his response included...

Robert Brannum an alleged pro-Clinton political activist had this to say about the DNC's "minor administrative error".

It seems a bit unclear whether or not the DNC also filed the paperwork for Clinton the day after the deadline, but if they did, the Clinton campaign is not being challenged in the same way.

To complicate matters, a man has submitted a challenge to Sanders being included on the list of candidates despite his late paperwork. Robert Brannum claims that Sanders being included on the list and ultimately being put on the D.C. ballot in the face of the missed deadline is a clear violation of D.C. rules and that no exceptions should be made.

1. My lifetime with the Democratic party is, methinks, drawing to a close.

 

Don't care to be associated with this reeking pile of manure.

22. To Big Bob Brannum! The Democratic PARTY Is The RESPONSIBLE Party Who Turned The Documents...

FOR BOTH CANDIDATES IN LATE!

SO YOU SIR TOOK IT UPON YOURSELF... KNOWING THE RULES ... TO GIVE THE DC ELECTION TO YOUR GAL... WELL, THE PERCEPTION ELSEWHERE AND PROBABLY EVEN WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE DISTRICT WILL BE THAT THIS WAS A CHEAP STUNT AND WILL INFLUENCE OTHERS ELSEWHERE VOTING IN OTHER STATES TO DISMISS THE CANDIDATE WHOSE CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN ENGAGED IN ALL OF THE SHADY TACTICS DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY WITH YOUR LITTLE BAG OF TRICKS NOW MAKING THE AGENDA OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY CLEAR TO EVEN THE MOST MYOPIC MEMBERS OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY THAT THIS PROCESS HAS BEEN "COOKED" TO PROVIDE AN ADVANTAGE TO HILLARY CLINTON. Thanks A Bernie Supporter!

When he complained about reporters needing to read the complaint he filed. She asked him to send the report. She then linked the story on her feed.

8. more on this guy -- 5th Ward Dem chair in DC

But some of Brannum’s aggressive tactics have made local Democratic leaders uncomfortable.

Upset by editorials from the Washington Post, Brannum repeatedly parked his car in front of the newspaper’s building this summer to berate the editorial board via a bullhorn.

21. This article is so revealing.

If you look at his Twitter feed, he paints himself as a strong advocate for women's rights. Dude was kicked out of the Air Force, though, as a result of sexual harassment charges against him. He's been part of demonstrations advocating for voting rights, but is now attempting to deny every other Democrat in D.C. the opportunity to vote for anyone besides Hillary Clinton.

Interesting.

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders' name is not on the primary ballot in Washington, D.C., after the D.C. Democratic Party submitted registration paperwork a day late and a voter filed a challenge, News4 has learned.

...they are a branch of the DNC. They received both the required paperwork and $2,500 filing fee from both candidates ahead of the deadline, yet they somehow filed Sander's paperwork too late.

In my experience, the local party organization has a lot of autonomy; but, does not answer to, the DNC.

But I'm sure your experience has been different.

But don't let my real life experience with Democratic local organizations interrupt you ignorance.

and this whole thing smells like Hillary and her friend Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

It's just another fix they put in.

I will not give blind allegiance to a party like the Hillarians do. I can see myself unregistering over this.

26. 'Confusion appeared to reign late Wednesday over just what happened and whether it could be fixed.

D.C. Democratic Party Chairwoman Anita Bonds told The Washington Times that the party’s primary plan, which included the paperwork for all candidates, was submitted by 7 p.m. on the 16th. The D.C. Board of Elections offices closes at 4:45 p.m.'

29. The Democrat Party Office and the Board of Elections are two different things...

The paperwork for the candidates was submitted by 7 pm...it wasn't handed over to the Board of Elections till the next day.

Looks like it's been done this way for a long time:

"...But, Bonds said, the party's deadline is a few hours after the Board of Elections closes, so her staff typically delivers the filings the next day.

"This has been kind of a tradition in the District of Columbia, that the party would notify the board the following day," Bonds said.

I lived in DC for 20+ years, and am quite used to bureaucratic confusion, personal/business/political.

Thanks for catching this from Bonds.
