Anti-Obamacare LaRouche Democrat leads Texas Senate primary



The Texas state Democratic Party is distancing itself from a senatorial candidate currently leading in a party primary despite being decried by party leadership.

The Hill reported on Monday that self-identified “LaRouche Democrat” Kesha Rogers was revealed as the front-runner among Democratic challengers taking on incumbent Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) in a poll released by the University of Texas-Austin and the Texas Tribune.

Rogers is a follower of perennial political gadfly Lyndon LaRouche, who mounted seven unsuccessful presidential campaigns between 1980 and 2004. He was convicted of fraud in 1988 and was paroled after serving five years of a 15-year sentence. LaRouche is the object of veneration by a small movement that some have characterized as a political cult.

Rogers’ platform includes calls for the impeachment of Obama, the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, and the re-institution of the Glass-Steagall Act. According to the Texas-based Burnt Orange Report, Rogers released a video in 2012 depicting Obama with an Adolf Hitler-styled mustache, which includes the line, “His doctor should administer some pentothal of sodium,” referring to the chemical used in lethal injections in prison.

Despite receiving less funding than opponents David Alameel and Maxey Scherr, not to mention the lack of party backing, the poll showed 35 percent of respondents said they were more likely to vote for Rogers, compared to 27 percent for Alameel and 15 percent for Scherr.

“That poll was, to put it bluntly, nonsense,” a spokesperson for Alameel’s campaign,Suzie Dundas, told The Hill. “Our internal results are showing us doing very well.”

6. How can this be?

Is this some sort of RWNJ plot, so as to have a republican-in-sheep's clothing (so to speak) running as a Democrat, filling the Democratic side of the ballot? If so, they win no matter what. Is Texas an open primary state where you don't have to declare party allegiance to vote, and are Republican voters being urged to vote for this candidate, thereby stacking the deck? This is crazy! There is NO WAY this person is a Democrat. NO EFFING WAY!!!

THIS seems like election fraud to me.
