DNC Chair: Alabama Democrats not getting party-building funds

Source: Montgomery Advertiser

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee Monday said the DNC has been withholding some payments from the Alabama Democratic Party due to a failure to develop a strategic plan or invest in state party infrastructure.

In a letter to Jefferson County Democratic Party chair Richard Mauk, Tom Perez wrote that the party held up at least $10,000 a month in payments to the state party.

“Alabama has fallen far short of meeting its basic obligations to develop an effective strategic plan and build the necessary infrastructure for success,” Perez wrote in the letter. “The ADP has chronically underperformed in virtually every aspect of operation.”

The letter is the latest sign of mounting impatience from the national party with the current leadership of the Alabama Democratic Party. The DNC last month stripped Alabama Democratic Party chair Nancy Worley and vice-chair Randy Kelley of their credentials, accusing the leaders of dragging their feet in implementing by-law changes and holding new leadership elections, as ordered by the national party in February.

FWIW - the Dean "50 State Strategy" did not simply throw money at State Parties; support was contingent on organizational restructuring and building campaign infrastructure.

4. How much was the party

And how mich was Jones himself, and the favorable electoral conditions of going up against a sexual predator?

2. Sounds like a great job for a Stacey Abrams campaign staffer

imho. Her Georgia staff really knew how to organize and build an organization. I'm sure that can be exported to Alabama.

3. Gov. Don Siegelman was trending DEMs up statewide.

Until Rove, Fuller, Riley, Canary and Co. railroaded him.
