Texas Democrats-Please remember that Kesha Rogers is not a Democrat

Kesha is running for the Democratic nomination for US Senate. Kesha is not a Democrat but a member of the LaRouche cult http://www.juanitajean.com/2013/12/05/some-creepy-breaking-news/ Kesha's main goal is to impeach President Obama. i have met Kesha a couple of times and she scares me.

Here is a good picture of Kesha





Please do not let Kesha get into a runoff. She is dangerous and scary.

Juanita Jean does have a way with words.

3. Is she registered as a Democrat? If so, then technically she is a Democrat. Maybe

not supportive of mainline Democratic values, and maybe a kook, but technically still a Democrat. It is like that Westboro church guy - he ran for statewide office as a registered Democrat - I believe he got about 20% of the vote.

4. In Texas, voters do register party affiliation.

For primaries, voters may select to vote in either party's primary election. However, voters do not select a party affiliation. A Texas voter's registration card may be stamped DEMOCRATIC or REPUBLICAN, but this is to help prevent the voter from then voting in the other party's primary. Again, this is not registration.

This system has been in effect for decades.

5. Thanks for that update! So since there is no party registration, I assume you don't have to

prove you are a Democrat to run in the Democratic primary? I certainly can see how this can cause mischief!

6. Yes, but the fortunate thing this year is that several of the Republican primary races are contested

this year which means that should be very few of them jumping over to elect the weakest Democrat--the GOP has to get their own house in order first.

8. The State Party has adopted a resolution that all party members and clubs are free to ignore her

In 2010 and 2012, the State Democratic Party have adopted a couple of resolutions that state that in effect that Kesha is not a member of the Democratic Party and her positions are against the best interests of the party. I understand that the SDEC (the governing body of the Texas Democratic Party) adopted a new resolution this December as to Kesha. Under these resolutions, all Democrats and democratic clubs are free to exclude Kesha and ignore her. Kesha was not a delegate for either the 2010 or 2012 state conventions and I am sure that she will not be selected this year.

My county party chair is a member of the SDEC and he told us about the resolution.

7. Bless her heart -

I cannot believe she is doing this again. And last time we had to deal with her (or her supporters) trying to sign up here to defend her craziness ...

17. I predicted a Rogers/Alameel runoff two weeks ago

in a conversation with two fellow Harris County EVBB ballot board members.

Alameel will spend enough money in the runoff to avoid being defeated -- he may even lead going into the runoff on the strength of his mailers and TV ads -- but Rogers has been on the ballot a few times, she has the highest name ID of all four candidates, and she is the only African American at the top of the statewide ballot (except for Steve Brown, who is actually downballot at the Railroad Commission position).

She's also a woman in the Year Of.

The TexTrib has had some notoriously bad polling in the past, but this race is the only one that raises my eyebrow on the D side.

The Republican numbers look believable.

18. I voted for Scheer on Saturday

I am hoping that the polling is wrong and Kesha does not make the run off.

The Fort Bend Democrats still have some Kesha is not a Democrats signs and Don Bankston has a web domain for Not a Democrat that Alameel may be using

20. The link didn't work for me.

Was it this poll:



If so, scary indeed.

Everyone needs to get out and vote! I'll be voting this week.

19. Chairman Hinojosa is getting involved

Here is an e-mail that I just received from Chairman Hinojosa about Kesha

Dear _____,
Kesha Rogers is one of the candidates on the ballot for U.S. Senator in the Democratic primary -- but do not be fooled. Kesha Rogers is not a Democrat.

Ms. Rogers is part of the “LaRouche Movement,” which has a history of violent rhetoric. The focus of her campaign is impeaching President Obama. Rogers has even paraded around Texas with a poster of the President with a Hitler mustache.

Rogers believes that the U.S. economy is secretly controlled by London financial institutions and she has advocated for colonizing Mars. That’s not what real Democrats stand for.

The Texas Democratic Party does not support the candidacy of Kesha Rogers or anyone that aligns themselves with the LaRouche Movement. Our State Democratic Executive Committee even issued a resolution against her campaign. Do not vote for Kesha Rogers in the primary.

Rogers’ candidacy is a insult to our Party, our President, our state, our Democratic values, and to all the work you are doing to move our state forward.

Do not vote for Kesha Rogers.

All my best --

Gilberto Hinojosa
Chair, Texas Democratic Primary

I would hate to see Kesha in a run off.

22. Here is the resolution adopted by the Texas Democratic Party with respect to Kesha

Here is the actual resolution adopted by the State Party http://www.txdemocrats.org/pdf/Kesha-Rogers.pdf

State Democratic Executive Committee (SDEC) Has Resolved:

WHEREAS, the rules of the Texas Democratic Party (Art. I, B, 1.) require that no test of membership, nor oaths of loyalty, to the Texas Democratic Party shall be used if those oaths or tests would have the effect of requiring members of the Democratic Party to acquiesce in, condone or support discrimination based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion and ethnic origin, now therefore be it

RESOLVED, that no Rules or Declarations of the Texas Democratic Party that require support for Party nominees shall be enforced or have any application as they relate to the candidacy of any person identifying him or herself as aligned with the LaRouche Movement or Lyndon LaRouche, and, be it further

RESOLVED, that Members, Officers and Candidates of the Texas Democratic Party are neither required nor encouraged to support the candidacy of any person indentifying him or herself as aligned with the LaRouche Movement or Lyndon LaRouche but are nevertheless free to relate to, describe and interact with any such candidates or campaigns as they individually deem appropriate, and, be it further

RESOLVED, that the Texas Democratic Party will have no relationship with the campaign of any person indentifying him or herself as aligned with the LaRouche Movement or Lyndon LaRouche; no such campaigns will have access to Party materials or data, no listing on the Party website and no position of privilege, recognition, or credentialing at Party meetings or conventions.
