Hillary's campaign repeating dirty tricks of 2008...

With allegations of voter suppression in Arizona, as well as questions about the Clinton campaign’s tactics in Iowa, Nevada, and other states, some historical context is needed. In 2008, The Atlantic published an article explaining “dirty politics” and voting “irregularities” titled “Obama Manager Accuses Clintons of Widespread Dirty Politics”:“

David Plouffe, in a succinct statement appended to a released quotation from his boss, Barack Obama, said the Obama campaign was investigating more than 200 reporters of irregularities in Nevada.

‘We currently have reports of over 200 separate incidents of trouble at caucus sites, including doors being closed up to thirty minutes early, registration forms running out so people were turned away, and ID being requested and checked in a non-uniform fashion. This is in addition to the Clinton campaign’s efforts to confuse voters and call into question the at-large caucus sites which clearly had an affect on turnout at these locations. These kinds of Clinton campaign tactics were part of an entire week’s worth of false, divisive, attacks designed to mislead caucus-goers and discredit the caucus itself.’


Plouffe asks Nevadans to call a toll-free number… and report any other problems.”

Sound familiar? Every single one of the voting irregularities Plouffe complained about in 2008 have been experienced by the Bernie Sanders campaign.

History is repeating itself in 2016.

1. This is who the Clintons are! As parents they sent their own daughter out to lie!

 

What parents do that?

That's where my mom bailed her campaign!

11. omg such a mind blowing decision.

 

that was a dark day for Americans who watched Chelsea Clinton grow up,
even amidst the ultimate family scandal.
how could they put her through so much?

there clearly is no bottom.

4. It certainly is in terms of the way she is running her campaign...

 

She may still lose this one or the general election.

5. We know EXACTLY where that stench is coming from, same as in 2008.

She, her campaign, her puppets and minions always manage to crap where they gotta sleep.

Same as it ever was.

6. That's probably why David Plouffe endorsed Hillary

and why Obama hired her as SoS or maybe not.

8. You are claiming that Hillary was secretly chosen as

Secretary of State so she would endorse Obama. LOL

9. Yes, what land do you live in?

 

Things like that happen in politics all the time. Do you really think she conceded without extracting something?
