Bernie’s Backers Prevail At Democratic State Convention

On Sunday, on the second and final day of the state party convention at the Sheraton Waikiki, party members elected a new chair, Tim Vandeveer, a grassroots activist best known for his activism in “keeping the country country” on Oahu’s North Shore.

Vandeveer is also an unrelenting supporter of Bernie Sanders for president, the independent senator from Vermont known for his views on socialism.


But it was clear from the strong support for Vandeveer in the Sheraton ballroom that a Bernie tide had swept him into office.

“When the people lead, our leaders will follow, and that absolutely applies to me,” said Vandeveer. “I am going to need your support to put this party back on track. No matter what side of the debate you are on, we must always engage in civil discourse and treat each other with aloha.”

3. At least he did not

get punched in the face. Now, only one of those violent acts actually happened. Maybe you should let this go. Really.
