Interesting in-depth article on primaries , super delegates, etc.

In August 2015, at the Democratic Party convention in Minneapolis, 33 democratic state parties made deals with the Hillary Clinton campaign and a joint fundraising entity called The Hillary Victory Fund. The deal allowed many of her core billionaire and inner circle individual donors to run the maximum amounts of money allowed through those state parties to the Hillary Victory Fund in New York and the DNC in Washington...

1. My guess is that some of those super-delegates are starting to regret that deal now.

 

Hence why the contested convention may become a reality.

The Alaska state party raised $43,500. Guess how much went to Alaska downticket Dems? A big fat $0. They wrote a check to the DNC for the full $43,500 which is being funneled over into Hillary's campaign.

It's just a scam to get around the $2700 campaign cap. I'm betting some state Dems are a little pissed about it now.

3. yep. And on this site.

 

I refuse to vote for her no matter what.

I expect to be leaving this site soon because if the DNC nominates Hillary, I go independent and won't come here any more.

I won't vote for that. I will write in Bernie Sanders.
