Breaking: Sanders Could Win Majority of Colorado Delegates

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by tammywammy (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Universe Politics

What is most controversial about this issue isn’t the fact that a mistake was made, but the fact that a mistake was made and the Colorado Democratic Party tried to cover it up rather than fix it. The Sanders campaign was not informed about the miscount, while the Clinton campaign was.

Rick Palacio, Democratic Party Chairman, said that he didn’t tell the Sanders campaign about the discrepenacy “because it didn’t necessarily affect (them). It was our mistake that ended up affecting the estimation of Hillary’s campaign.”

And the hits just keep on coming....

Big woo hoo!...Because the big story is not that Senater Bernie Sanders delegate counts..keep getting closer

But that the bad form/ bad faith continues to be exposed

And the consequence was known weeks ago and involved 2 delegates.

There's more going on than just this.

So next time you say, "Well Hillary's winning..." You're just giving the middle finger to all of those who were screwed out of their vote.

People died for other's right to vote, and if you're just happy Hillary's winning, then you've got some issues.

But they had a good reason, there was another candidate from a smaller minority as an option.

It would seem male Jewish candidates don't count as a minority.

And the problem was fixed and the correct numbers were reported to the state weeks ago, and the delegates assigned to Bernie.

This is an example, state officials say, of why the very complicated caucus system, which depends on so much work by volunteers, should be replaced by a universal primary.

They tried it with the Washington district delegates. "Bernie gains 49 more delegates!"
