If Bernie really cares about working families, and not just self-promotion,

Last edited Sun Feb 26, 2017, 10:54 PM - Edit history (5)

then he will share his donor list with the DNC, which needs all progressives to join together to strengthen the party in all 50 states. The donor list he agreed -- by written contract -- to share with the DNC.

No if's, ands, or buts.

THE CONTRACT:

The contract is Appendix A to this document. See page 3 of that Appendix, (e).

http://www.politico.com/f/?id=00000151-b72f-d1ae-add5-f76f14db0001

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2017/01/18/at-dnc-debate-ellison-says-hell-ask-sanders-to-share-his-donor-list/?utm_term=.54de0db74c21

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said for the first time that he will ask Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to share the donor list built during his 2016 presidential campaign, answering a question that had begun to unsettle the race to run the Democratic National Committee.

“We’re gonna call on everybody to give all the resources they have,” Ellison said during a Huffington Post-hosted debate at George Washington University. “We’re in an emergency situation.”

http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/26/politics/sanders-dnc-election/

Sanders also implied in response to Tapper's questioning that he would not give the DNC his presidential campaign's massive email list, which shattered previous records by raising $218 million online from 2.8 million donors.

The list will be used "to transform the Democratic Party into a party that stands for working families," he said, implying that he wants his new group, Our Revolution, to decide which candidates will get access to that list and reap its benefits.

24. Enough with the "not a Democrat" crap.

Which Democratic members of the House and Senate have shared their donor lists with the DNC?

I'd like to know so I never give them another dollar and get my name taken off their current list.

I give to specific people. I have never given to the DNC, DSCC, or the DCCC. I would be furious if I started getting mailings and email and calls from them because one of the many candidates I have given money to shared their list.

Absolutely furious.

More on labeling and the "Not a Democrat" crap.

170. I assume he thinks he's "sending a message" or "making a point" ...

... the exact message or point that he's trying to convey remains unclear to me. But what is clear to me is that it's a snub.

In my opinion, and based on my life's experiences, behavior like that is usually done by someone who has an axe-to-grind. It emphasizes division and separateness. It suggests resentfulness and distrust. There's really nothing at all about that type of posturing that would be interpreted as being conciliatory.

Personally speaking, I know that if I had an estranged in-law who treated me with such disrespect and then that in-law started to criticize and offer unsolicited advice on my homemaking skills, I'd certainly question her sincerity or motives. That's just human nature, I guess.

Isn't it odd how some individuals insist on doing things and embracing attitudes that are clearly not in their own best interests or in the interests of things that are, overall, supposedly important to them?

In-laws are funny that way, I guess. My own mother-in-law made it exceedingly difficult not to resent her meddling and intrusive nature, and as a result I've done my best to avoid making the same mistakes she made. So, on the plus side: I took a lesson from her mistakes and was able to be a better person because of it.

With regard to the current political climate and distrust of motives and propriety ... maybe someone in the future will also be able to take a lesson and avoid making the same mistakes and missteps. As it stands now, that's likely the only possibility of finding any positive outcome.

190. That's the goal? Really? Well, that would be the wrong way to go about things (in my opinion).

Unless someone actually WANTS resistance and resentment and to be marginalized and ignored. I can't believe anyone actually likes being treated like a meddling outsider. But, if so... if that's what someone wants, then they're doing it exactly right (in my opinion.)

The way I see it you can't just put up a fight against it. I voted for Bernie in our CT primary. My husband was a strong HRC supporter. I still slept with the guy...

Obviously, something went off the wall last November. Weren't you shocked when she didn't win? Now look at what we've got!

For gawd's sake, let's all get together on this and fight the REAL enemy: the Republicans. They have control of every branch of government and we are so screwed.

195. I can work together. Many others can, too. But ...

... I think that people will find it difficult to "work together" and "bow down" and "acquiesce" simultaneously. That is just a bridge too far. I won't do it, yet, many demand nothing less. (And regarding the word "allowed" it was more of a concession that lacked enthusiasm. I "allow" myself to be subjected to a mammogram, that doesn't mean I'm enthusiastic about it ... but it's necessary to avoid other worse things.)

126. No. "Donor data" is not normally shared.

"voter data collected" is not the same as "donor data" or "volunteer data"

Candidates and entities generally keep their donor data to themselves.

169. If you would be furious if you started getting emails from organizations that you didn't donate to..

...imagine how furious I was when in December 2015 I started getting unsolicited emails from the Sanders campaign and Democracy for America without me ever giving either or anyone other than the DNC my email address.

You can guess the timing when those emails began, if I said here I'd most likely be alerted.

70. "voter contact data" is NOT "donor data" or "volunteer data"

All campaigns collect voter data from various sources counties, states, other entities (like DNC). They use various models to analyze the source data to identify potential donors and solicit contributions.

I don't know for a fact, but it would be my guess that Bernie 2016 already shared source voter data collected.

An agreement to share source voter data collected is NOT the same as an agreement to share donor information. (Donor information is generally a subset of the larger source pool, but also includes people who donated without solicitation, plus email, and other information the donor provided. It is not customary to share donor data.)

The data licensing agreement referenced as "Bernie's agreement" is found in Exhibit A of the Complaint Bernie 2016 filed against the DNC (and later withdrew).

It clearly talks about "voter data collected." The agreement does not specify "donor data" explicitly. I does explicitly name "volunteer data" and "models" used. In absence of any specification of "donor data," this does not appear to be an agreement to share "donor data."

The fact that "donor v. volunteer v. voter data" are separate things is clear from the agreement with the Iowa State Party (Exbibit A-2 of above referenced complaint.)

For the avoidance of doubt, Licensor does not obtain any license or right to Licensee's donor
database or mass email list, other than volunteer email addresses recorded in VAN, under
this Agreement.

173. Didn't think proof was necessary. And I dont really mind if you call bullshit.

 

Most of his stops since his last loss have been for his book tour. He has spent most of the rest of his time yelling at walls which is really tailored to his spending base. These things are well known. It's what career politicians do on their way out.

Have you really missed all of his book tour dates. Donkees has kept somewhat good track of them in the Sanders forum. Though some are incorrectly labeled as campaign events. That goes hand in hand with the career politician aspect.

Have fun calling bullshit on reality. Seems that is your main concern. Sanders own group here at DU will open your eyes to his cash grab. I don't see it as a negative. It's simply the status quo for career politicians.

9. It won't help. Those donors aren't going to necessarily donate to the DNC

 

And the DNC's usual way of requesting money would only harden opposition.

That list is only beneficial for certain issues and candidates now and just amorphously requesting $$ for the DNC isn't it imo.

129. For future claims like this...

... in the "industry" there is a distinction between "voter data collected," "donor data," and "volunteer data."

The agreement (assuming it was actually executed -- the version in the complaint was not signed by DNC) does not appear to cover "donor data."

187. How is that "parsing"? The contract is the contract as pointed out.

Would you like to see a list of "ham handed Sanders fundraising appeals"* that I received even though I never contacted them or gave them my my email address?

I began receiving email requests for money from both DFA (Democracy for America) and the Sanders campaign on Friday, December 18 2015, asking for donations. I continued to get them just about every day until June 2016. Some days I received four or five of them.

He says "we" when talking about the party he hates but wants to take over via coup.
Speaking of coups is that a Socialistic tactic too?

Then Exhibit A-1 - blank page.
Then Exhibit A-2 - blank page, then language on the voter file - 6 pages
then schedule B and more lawsuit stuff.

16. Everyone knows I'm a Bernie fanatic

But that list is worth MILLIONS, possibly hundreds of millions. Just giving it away? That's a real test of character -- and probably one I, personally, would fail (as I wave bye to North America from the deck of my yacht ).

Personally, I hope he loans the list out, but only to candidates he believes in. It would help Democrats AND be true to his values.

was critical to his own campaign efforts, in exchange for sharing his data with the DNC.

Their data was also worth millions. Now he needs to honor his word.

Whether Bernie hands over his list or doesn't, those votes will have to be earned.

In fact, those voters getting emails from the DNC right now might be a very bad thing.

And because the best way to lessen the DNC's dependence on corporate donors is to share a list that doesn't include them.

The contract is Appendix A to this document. See page 3 of that Appendix, (e).

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said for the first time that he will ask Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to share the donor list built during his 2016 presidential campaign, answering a question that had begun to unsettle the race to run the Democratic National Committee.

“We’re gonna call on everybody to give all the resources they have,” Ellison said during a Huffington Post-hosted debate at George Washington University. “We’re in an emergency situation.”

The claim the Bernie 2016 campaign agreed to share donor data is spurious because the contract does not appear to cover donor data at all.

It is my understanding that campaigns don't normally share donor data. They do what Kerry did -- send mail to donors soliciting on behalf of another entity/candidate.

I took note of it several weeks ago.

Ellison's expressed intention to ask Sanders for his list has absolutely NOTHING to do with your false assertion (in post after post) that Sanders is in breach of an agreement with the DNC.

I fully expect Ellison to follow through with his expressed intention to ask. I imagine he already has.

At the time I thought it was extremely unlikely that Sanders would agree to hand over the Bernie 2016 donor/email list. I still think it is very doubtful.

I do think Sanders is very likely to leverage his list to call on those who supported him to get involved in efforts to respond to the emergency situation we are in. As a member of the list, I know he has already made use of it for a number of worthwhile calls to action.

So, when will you be withdrawing your erroneous claim that Sanders is in violation with an agreement to share donor data?

153. What you quote is irrelevant.

You quote my speculation that he probably has complied with what the agreement called for.

Here's what the agreement calls on him to share:

-- voter contact data (which is not donor data)

-- updated phone number and address information (which is not donor data)

-- any models created using volunteer data (which is not donor data)

-- volunteer data (which is not donor data)

-- acquired demographic and specialty data (which is not donor data)

-- modeling scores (which is not donor data)

Whether or not he shared the above -- and I am guessing he did -- is irrelevant to your erroneous claim that Sanders is violating the agreement by not handing over donor data. The agreement does not call for him to share donor data. Your assertion is wrong. You should withdraw the assertion that he signed an agreement to share donor data. He didn't sign such an agreement.

155. "Voter contact data" IS NOT donor data. "Volunteer data" IS NOT donor data.

In response to the second quote (apparently added on edit), "Voter contact data" is the data compiled from state and county registration and voting records. It is public data, but the formats are so variable that campaigns pay companies for versions of the information compiled into more usable database form.

NO RELATION to donor data.

Volunteer data IS NOT donor data. Sure, some people may both volunteer and donate, but they are separate databases.

On edit: Data brokers that deal in "voter contact data" make the data more valuable by combining it with other public information they can connect to the voters -- information that can be very helpful when creating analytical models for targeting those most likely to donate.

The agreement being referenced appears to be for voter data, volunteer data, and models the Bernie 2016 campaign used to analyze the voter data to identify potential donors.

I don't know if they passed along the voter data they collected from states, counties, and what have you, or their volunteer information, or their analytical models, but as far as I can tell, there never was an agreement to share donor data.

because of the pages and pages of inquiry from the FEC for unexplained donations. I assume this has not been resolved and apparently the FEC is basically no longer functioning.

Why would he want the Democratic party to see his donor data? He wouldn't.

But I think coming from him, and emphasizing efforts jugded as boldest -- and perhaps the ways "people power" can influence DNC focus -- would be a more effective means of engaging.

Many Sanders supporters feel alienated from the party; that feel their "go big" frame is not heard. Perhaps if the DNC did a better job of "going big," solicitations direct from the would be more effective.

It could of course have a "backfire" effect and prompt people to unsubscribe, and lessen power.

Don't know. All I know is that there's a risk of further alienating those who are dedicated to pushing the party to bolder action if he just hands over donor list.

This can be sorted without too many hissy fits.

1) Contact all the donors, and ask them would they allow their details be passed to the DNC.

2) The people who deny access can then continue to be emailed for support by Bernie, for specific requests on behalf of the DNC, but Bernie would hold their details.

165. Oh please... what a stupid post.

 


Bernie has spent his entire life fighting the good fight. Your purity test is insane.

The truth is that the Democratic party has too many corporate interests asserting influence. Bernie is more liberal than the Democratic establishment and I support anything he can do to help move our party to the left. That includes withholding the list which I am on.

Maybe if Hillary supporters cared about working families as much as Bernie's does then her donor list would be as important to the party as Bernie's is.

167. This infighting is what will destroy the party. Screw the list. Just develop a new one.

It is time wasted begging for something you are not going to get. MOVE ON!

168. I suspect much of that donor list is already on the DNC server.

177. Yup.

What's the big deal here?

The only ones who aren't are not registered as Democrats -- and some of those would probably object to their email address being handed over to the DNC. Build the list from the bottom up -- from local D Party organizations -- there's growing membership at that level in response to Nov 8th/45. I'm seeing it here where I am. Just build up from there for crying out loud.

178. What's the point of this OP other than to bash Bernie.

Good grief! Can't we just move on folks?

The DNC would be better served to build its list out from the ground up. Update based on updates of local D Party email lists. They are growing as we speak. I know my local organization is seeing a lot more involvement and membership since Nov. 8th/45's so-called election.

186. There is none.

Some people simply can't let go of the primaries.

218. Tell that to BS.. Keith is asking him for his donor list..

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said for the first time that he will ask Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to share the donor list built during his 2016 presidential campaign, answering a question that had begun to unsettle the race to run the Democratic National Committee.

“We’re gonna call on everybody to give all the resources they have,” Ellison said during a Huffington Post-hosted debate at George Washington University. “We’re in an emergency situation.”

203. Sanders needs to either support the Democratic Party wholeheartedly

 

or put his money where his mouth is and start his own party that looks exactly the way he wants it to. He is not a Democrat. He doesn't get to say "I need a party, so I'm going to tell the Democratic Party how they need to change to accommodate me". If he and his supporters aren't willing to put in the hard work that entails, then they need to STFU.

205. At this point, the list is the only leverage

that Sanders has left. He failed to turn out his faction sufficiently on election day, and that probably weakened any claim he could have made about his influence with getting that bloc of voters to the polls for the Democrats.

My guess is that Sanders is holding on to the list so he doesn't have to ask for and accept DSCC funding for his senate race. He might also be waiting to see whether or not Giordano makes good on his threat to run against him in 2018.

221. I've gotten enough spammy, clickbaiting DNC fundraising emails to know...

That Bernie handing over his donor list would be a yuge mistake.

If the DNC wants to keep chasing big donors and lobbyist money. That's fine. Good luck to them. Leave me the fuck out of it.
