Bernie is demanding a recanvass in Kentucky over ONE delegate ...

... seriously??

They're gonna split the delegate count regardless of what a recount determines.

He's just trolling at this point.

What a jackass move.

The state has to foot the bill for a recanvass all over 1 delegate.

97. The goal of the primary is to win delegates, which he already did in Washington

 

There was no need for him to go back and re-campaign and put forth a GOTV campaign to make sure everyone voted in a primary that had no meaning in the primary. I would be pissed if he had and had wasted money on a beauty contest. Hillary supporters are fond of saying it doesn't matter who shows up at rallies, it matters who shows up to vote when it counts. The caucus counted and Bernie supporters showed up. The primary was meaningless.

which is why he chose that instead of a recount.

Candidates have to pay for a recount.

This move doesn't reflect well on Sanders especially since it's only about a 1 delegate swing.

Guess that $27 spigot of donations is running dry.

It's about election fraud.

60. Desperation. That's all it is.

One delegate? If the recanvass indicates it, which it probably won't. One delegate. A waste of Kentucky taxpayer dollars, it seems to me. Sour grapes, too, it seems to me. It doesn't matter, so why bother?

64. Anyone can only request a recount if the margin is narrow. That's how it goes.

 

Soooo, what's your point? Obviously, there's not much need for a recount if the margin is wide. You're effectively arguing that anyone who ever requests a recount is an asshole.

Gore seems like an alright guy.

74. As I was properly corrected, he's not asking for a recount, he's asking for a ...

... recanvass.

The difference being that he'd have to pay for a recount, and the taxpayers of Kentucky are forced to pay for a recanvass.

This is nothing more than a publicity stunt to allow Bernie to continue to cry foul and bitch about corruption.

Really cynical and petty.

66. Curious. Is there any rules for automatic recount?

I'm here in Canada, and there is an automatic recount for any election where the results are 1/1000 difference. My math brain is dead this morning. What's 212555 vs 210631? Brain hurts. Argh!

73. I think it has more to do with checking vote integrity, than 1 delegate.

 

Sander's supporters have been asking him to have ballot checks... Verify the paper trail since AZ... That's when people started noticing the exit polls vs the machine count. Then the audit in IL showed that the machine count varied wildly from the hand count. Instead of flagging that check and adding additional audits or checking an entire district wide paper ballot vote, the board changed the hand count to match the machine and verified the election.

So, take a close count in KY and check the paper trail. Let's just see how "verifiable" the machines really are. And if there has been screwy results, then perhaps those other states were in error as well, as many suspect.

And notice, since people have been making a big stink about exit polls vs machine counts, they have decided there will be no further exit polling conducted in the remaining peimary elections. So, is anyone going to trust the vote from CA? Will anyone trust any of this primary? Many Bernie supporters are being called CT over this issue, but we know that 2000 and 2004 was stollen (2004 being a direct vote flip in OH). And the exit polls this time around have the Republican race matching quite accurately, however, in the same primaries, the Demicratic primary exit and machine vote totals are off? Along with the establishment being against Bernie the entire time, manipulating debates, media ignoring or doing "hit" pieces on Bernie, super delegates lining up behind Hillary before anyone announced, the DNC creating that Hillary PAC deal with 33 states.... It's been really disgusting how "rigged" the Dem Primaries have been for 2016.... All to prop up an unpopular candidate that the public doesn't trust or like, and who is running while under FBI investigation. The audacity to run while under investigation is absolute hubris... And the Democratic Party to hold up such a nominee like this is absolutely devastating to the brand!

86. Yes.

I get tired of people using the same narratives. Bernie is a sore loser, whiner, big ego, wasting taxpayer money (god that one sounds like a Repuke), he's not even a real Democrat, he shouldn't complain when he's treated shoddily by the DNC because he shouldn't even be in the primary so he should STFU, his supporters are young and don't know how to vote or are too lazy to vote and that's why the vote counts don't match the rallies, are not Democrats, are privileged white people, are fringe, are violent and unpredictable (I suppose that's to scare old people), are youngsters who just want everything for free and there's no such thing as a free lunch (another Repuke meme) etc.

I feel like I got stuck, like Kathleen Bates in American Horror Stories where her detached head had to watch tv, I feel like I got stuck watching fox memes over and over and. over. Here in DU.

I remember Colbert doing an episode where the Fox meme of the day for Obamacare was that the huge paper document was put together with a giant paper clip. Show after show featured Fox personalities moaning over a big paper clip, like obviously that was bad. The paper clip proved Obamacare was a joke.

These Bernie comments feel like the paper clip episode. Ridiculous. Purposely misunderstanding the importance of things or what Bernie and his supporters represent, marginalizing progressives who are part of the Democratic Party, purposely ignoring the negatives of Clinton or the evidence of election fraud... they want to push through their narrative of the day. Over and over and over.

Stupid paper clips.

87. They learned their Brock and DNC daily memes well. And included a double

dose of hate, bigotry and scorn for all those desperately needing change and having to fight through all of this just to be recognized.

Purposeful misunderstanding is putting it kindly, imo.

The question is, should he exercise those rights and to what end?

I'm not sure standardization is necessarily to be desired, but Sanders is the only reason any attention is being paid this cycle to the vagaries of the system. It makes us all smarter, and I approve.

Bernie probably won Iowa, Missouri and a few more of the razor thin outcomes. It's time to fight for the "winner" appellation.

98. Why not just admit that Bernie Sanders gaining an extra delegate isn't the problem

you have with a recanvass in Kentucky but, rather, the potential "horror" of Bernie winning 21 rather than 20 states to Hillary's 23 so far? Of course it won't make a difference to Hillary's significant delegate lead; however, 21 states to 23 states just doesn't sound as good, does it?
