Sanders fails to oust Clinton backers from convention roles


WASHINGTON (AP) ó Democratic officials have rejected Bernie Sanders' request to remove two high-profile Hillary Clinton supporters from leadership positions at the party's summer convention.

Sanders' presidential campaign said in a letter Friday to the Democratic National Committee that Dannel Malloy, Connecticut's governor, and Barney Frank, a former Massachusetts congressman, couldn't be relied upon to perform their roles "fairly and capably while laboring under such deeply held bias."

Malloy is Platform Committee co-chairman. Frank is co-chairman of the Rules Committee.

Democratic officials responded to Sanders' request on Saturday, saying in a letter that Malloy and Frank were elected under party rules and that Sanders wasn't alleging any violations of that process.

The DNC says it reviewed the challenge, found it failed to meet the criteria and "we are compelled to dismiss it."

2/2 for Failed Stunts this week.

Desperation thy name is Sanders/Nader.


"We need a campaign, an election, coming up which does not have two candidates who are really very, very strongly disliked. I don't want to see the American people voting for the lesser of two evils," the senator told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos during an interview that will air on "This Week" Sunday. "I want the American people to be voting for a vision of economic justice, of social justice, of environmental justice, of racial justice."

Democratic Backlash After Sanders' Supporters Violence in Nevada

Asked by Stephanopoulos whether he would describe Clinton as the lesser of two evils against Donald Trump, Sanders responded, "No, I wouldn't describe it, but that's what the American people are saying."

His new methods of ignoring the votes of Democrats and especially PoC...

Sanders added that he will use Hillary Clinton's low favorability ratings as part of his case to Democratic party super delegates that they should back him over her.

I hope the Clinton team hits back hard. And apparently, Democrats don't hate Clinton enough to vote for him instead. Must bruise that inflated ego.

MSNBC's new tactic to make it seem like a horse race.

They've decided to pick March 22nd as the day for their primary win count. That way they can say Bernie has won 10 of the last 16 states. Why the 22nd and no territories? Because if they chose the 15th and included Guam, Clinton would be in the lead. Disgraceful.

Sample of voicemails left for state Democratic Chairwoman Roberta Lange

And they said we were making the threats of violence and misogyny up.


One caller suggested she would be hung or burned. (He brilliantly left a callback number.)

Another suggested she is a "corrupt b--tch."

Still another said it will come "back to bite you in the ass."

This is what State Democratic Party Chairwoman Roberta Lange has been subjected to since Bernie Sanders supporters became incensed at Saturday's state convention.

I have posted three of the vociemails here -- there are more to come. They are incredible. Warning: Language.

UPDATED: Here are transcripts of some of the voicemails -- and I have attached some horrific texts Lange received, too.

MALE CALLER: Hi Roberta Lange. This is a citizen of the United States of America and I just wanted to let you know that I think people like you should be hung in a public execution to show this world that we wonít stand for this sort of corruption. I donít know what kind of money they are paying to you, but I donít know how you sleep at night. You are a sick, twisted piece of shit and I hope you burn for this! You can return my call at [edited out for TOS]. Iíd love to go into further detail with you about this, though I am sure you donít have courage to do so. You cowardless bitch, running off the stage! I hope people find you.

New Jersey Monmouth Poll: Clinton 60, Sanders 32


But Bernie is definitely going to win New Jersey by 30 points

Two Losers have gotten out of the race. When will the third join them?

California, DC, or the convention?

New "Why Bernie will win conspiracy" that will be making the rounds

Trump voters will cross over and vote for Bernie now that Ted Cruz is out of the race. Even though as it is constantly pointed out, Bernie would beat Trump. So now instead of arguing that the democratic nominee should be picked by the voters, the Sanders' crowd is arguing that party leaders, independents, and rat screwing republicans should pick the democratic nominee.
