Big News: Sanders Gets More CO Delegates: Hillarians Pissed

This was posted and then locked out of LBN. It is an update on Colorado with the real important side bar ...Hillary's campaign was informed of the mistaken count ...but Bernie Sanders camp was deliberately kept out of the loop.

Hiding it from Bernie is a big frigging deal.

What is most controversial about this issue isn’t the fact that a mistake was made, but the fact that a mistake was made and the Colorado Democratic Party tried to cover it up rather than fix it. The Sanders campaign was not informed about the miscount, while the Clinton campaign was.

Rick Palacio, Democratic Party Chairman, said that he didn’t tell the Sanders campaign about the discrepenacy “because it didn’t necessarily affect (them). It was our mistake that ended up affecting the estimation of Hillary’s campaign.”

It was reported back then that one caucus volunteer in one precinct made an error; the state party corrected it. It was all over the news back then, why it's getting rehashed as "new" news is anyone's guess.

I suspect it was locked for being in the wrong forum.

My post was something like this....

If we keep adding delegates 1, 2 or 16 at a time we might catch-up. How exciting is that!

On to California ....were Bernie will get tremendous response.

When the Denver Post uncovered that the Colorado Democratic Party and the Hillary campaign kept this information secret for 5 weeks it was never reported nationally. Think about that for a minute. Incorrect voting numbers were reported on election night and the Colorado Democratic Party and the Hillary campaign kept it a secret for 5 weeks until the Denver Post uncovered it and that was not national news?

The article was posted May 7 and you posted it May 8 at 6:51 pm central time. It didn't fit with the basic guideline of "within the last 12 hours".
