Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s primary opponent Tim Canova to file FEC complaint against her


Ebattled DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz faced more controversy Monday morning when her primary opponent, Tim Canova, told local Florida newspapers he was filing a complaint against her.

“Our lawyers are preparing a complaint against Wasserman Schultz that we will file with the FEC for her wrongful use of DNC resources in her campaign against me, based on the wikileaks disclosures,” Canova said.

Debbie's been hurting the party for years and needs to fade out of the picture.

Oh shit, it just got worse. Documents Show Plans To Reward Big Donors With Federal Appointments

Sorry about the source, but this is just breaking ...


Leaked DNC Documents Show Plans To Reward Big Donors With Federal Appointments

Democratic National Committee documents recently released by WikiLeaks include spreadsheets and emails that appear to show party officials planning which donors and prominent fundraisers to provide with appointments to federal boards and commissions.


The spreadsheet — which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team — contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political action committees.


The proposed appointments also provide more evidence that the DNC favored Clinton over her former primary challenger, Bernie Sanders. Most of the donors listed on the spreadsheet have given to Clinton’s campaign. None gave to Sanders.

The donor spreadsheet is included in an email chain in which Jordan Kaplan, DNC’s national finance director, asks other officials to provide names of donors they want to propose for federal commissions. “Last call for boards and commissions,” Kaplan wrote on April 20.

Here's an example ...


If true, this is likely illegal ....

Link to US Code

Whoever, being a candidate, directly or indirectly promises or pledges the appointment, or the use of his influence or support for the appointment of any person to any public or private position or employment, for the purpose of procuring support in his candidacy shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if the violation was willful, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.

If we lose this election because of the DNC's bad behavior I'll never forgive them.

We will all suffer should Republicans control all three branches of government.

I'm voting for Hillary and encouraging everyone I know to do the same.

I live in Wisconsin, so I've seen first-hand what happens when Republicans get full control over government. They've got the State Assembly, State Senate, Governor's mansion and even the State Supreme Court here. Since Day One, when Squat Wanker "dropped the bomb," they've been working on changing the rules so they never lose that control.

Wisconsin is also a "purple" state, and I know that every vote matters. There's a very real threat that Trump could win the White House while Republicans maintain control of Congress. You can say goodbye to the "supermajority" rule in the Senate if that happens.

That said, I will continue my efforts to get much more progressive candidates elected, and to rid our party of those who would try to rig our party's primaries in any direction. The Democratic Party should stand for fairness and democracy.

Some even receding the other thread.

Next time I commit a crime I'm going to get Charles Manson to announce it to the world.

That way it'll be OK.

Please rec if you want the DNC to comply with their own impartiality rule.

So Debbie had Miranda at DNC request that CNN remove Tim Canova's name from a headline

Tim is of course running against Debbie in the Florida Democratic primary.


Also noteworthy that CNN complied.

Please rec if you're OK with the DNC violating their own impartiality rule.

Other threads suggest a lot of members are OK with this. Please rec if you think such rule can be violated if it's for a good cause, or provide other justification if you feel it's OK for other reasons.

Please make room under the bus for Robert Reich

He obviously wants Trump as President (sarcasm thingy here for those w/o the gene)


Robert Reich is furious with Debbie Wasserman Schultz after alleged email leak: ‘Fire her now’

The alleged leaks reveal emails from staffers questioning former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ faith, Wasserman Schultz contacting NBC political news director Chuck Todd questioning commentary on “Morning Joe” and calling Republican nominee Donald Trump names.

Reich wrote on a Facebook post Saturday that the alleged emails “clearly show the DNC tried to sandbag Bernie’s campaign. As such, he believes “Hillary should fire Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Now. Don’t wait until next week to replace her.”

Reich continues, giving examples of alleged Clinton preference when the party should have remained impartial. “When the director of communications wanted to complain to CNN about a segment the network aired in which Bernie said he would oust the chairwoman if he were elected, Wasserman Schultz emails back, ‘he isn’t going to be president,'” he wrote.

“Other emails show officials of the DNC using ‘us’ language when referring to Hillary supporters and ‘them’ language in reference to Bernie’s,” Reich believes this is further evidence that the DNC was secretly working behind closed doors to help Clinton in the primary over Sanders.
