Judge: AZ presidential preference vote can be challenged

PHOENIX — A judge on Monday ruled it’s legal to challenge last month’s presidential preference election.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge David Gass said it remains to be seen whether the Tucson man, John Brakey, contesting the election — and seeking to void the results — can prove his case that the things that went wrong merit voiding the vote.

During the first day of hearings Monday, Assistant Attorney General James Driscoll Maceachron, defending Secretary of State Michele Reagan, told the judge that Arizona law allows someone to contest the outcome of a political primaries between candidates. Ditto, he said, if the issue is something like an initiative or bond election.

But he said there is no authority to challenge the state’s presidential preference election, which is neither a primary in the traditional sense nor a ballot measure.

Poll: DO you agree with this decision?

New DNA technology helped clear man in 1989 rape

LAKE COUNTY, Ind. -- A northwest Indiana man who served nearly 25 years in prison was released on Monday after new DNA technology cleared him in a 1989 rape.

Darryl Pinkins, 63, walked out of a Lake County correctional facility shortly before 11 a.m. "48 Hours'" cameras captured Pinkins' emotional reunion with his family, including a 24-year-old son who wasn't yet born when he began his prison term. Producers have followed his story two years.

Pinkins was convicted in 1991 of raping a Hammond woman. He's always maintained he was at home in bed with his wife when the attack happened.

Since 2007, teams from the Indiana and Idaho Innocence Projects and the Indiana University Law School wrongful conviction clinic have been working to prove his innocence. The case marks the first exoneration using a new DNA analysis program called TrueAllele, according to an Innocence Project news release. The process can provide reanalysis of old DNA results to pinpoint which people contributed to DNA mixtures.

Watching town halls again. Rachel really got under Clinton's thin skin again.

She sounds so desperate. She looks so desperate. That pained look on her face told it all.

I would like to propose a new National Party rule:


I would like to propose a new National Party rule:

No delegate shall be seated who is part of the actual elections apparatus. Meaning, no one who is involved officially on any polling place or in any elections room shall be allowed to be pledged delegate at least. I have a name for the rule, but I don't want to be disruptive. I am serious about this. Let's avoid some of these coast to coast unseemly events next time, please. We are embarrassing good party members with bad behavior.

Clinton: ‘I did not put down conditions’ before supporting Obama in 2008

This has been explained over and over. The same woman who can't understand why she sounds so out of touch on the $12 minimum wage issue vs. Bernie's $15 is the same woman so out of touch she actually thinks Bernie controls his people. Wrong. Bernie's people tell him where we are, and he believes them at face value and then fights for them.

She's absolutely clueless.

Hillary Clinton on Monday dismissed the notion that she needs to adopt some of Bernie Sanders’ positions to unite the party if she becomes the Democratic nominee, arguing during an MSNBC town hall that she has millions more votes and more specific proposals than her rival.

“I have a bigger lead in pledged delegates than Senator Obama, when I ran against him in 2008, ever had over me. I am winning,” Clinton said during the town hall moderated by Rachel Maddow. “And I’m winning because of what I stand for and what I’ve done and what my ideas are.”

In an appearance on “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Sanders acknowledged he has only a “narrow path” to the Democratic presidential nomination. But he said it will be Clinton’s responsibility to win over his supporters if she captures the nomination. He has also said he feels he is the stronger candidate to run against Donald Trump, or whoever the Republican nominee is, in the general election.

During the town hall, Clinton said her battle with the eventual nominee eight years ago was “so much closer” than her current race against Sanders.

IF those Brock trolls show up here on DU, you will know how they got here.

Hillary's people paid them a huge sum of money for their services, and since this site is the Official site of my County party, I expect to hold this site to a higher standard. That is, unless they don't care about having my entire County party along. Not many people actually know that I suppose.

Is DU the Official site for any of your locals?

Mine party lists DU on heir home pages and all relevant sites as the official site.

I hope Debbiegate doesn't spread to DU.

What will *really happen here at DU the moment a nominee is announced:(edited)

1. There will be much gnashing of teeth for the losing side, with members of their own team calling for calm and unity.
2. There will be much gloating on the winning side, with members of their team calling for humility and grace.
3. There will be a call from any or all of the following for the same, and yadda yadda, rally behind our nominee: Skinner, The DLC/Third Way, and The Corporate State media outlets working in overdrive, the party leaders on at least one side of Great Political Divide that exists within our party, and of course, the Triangulator-In-Chief, Bubba Clinton himself. I fully suspect, by the way, many will be socked and stunned by the sheer lack of support for her.
4. There will be a second wave of vile and vitriolic posts, juries, hidden posts, and shit-slinging which will, as in all times prior, will re-write the rules of DU yet again to suit the soup of the day.
5. There will be a third wave of incredulity, as the realization sets in that we meant what we said. The FDR/Labor wing has one last gasp in it, and will make their stand known. They have already adopted a catch phrase "Bern It Down". They did, not me. I saw it elsewhere. I repeated it here. If you haven't seen it, just follow me here for a minute. I have stated in other posts that what I do is predict.
6. When the election goes to the other side, there will be wailing.

On edit: Whoops! Forgot the close: Please, please vote for Bernie to avoid this scenario I described! Please vote against The Corporate State and vote FOR the Constitution!

Second edit: Ignore is my friend. Once you make it to the ignore list, I will never see you again. Whoops, there went the party unity! D'oh.
