DNC Announces Members Of Unity Reform Commission

WASHINGTON ― Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez announced the complete list of people on the 21-member Unity Reform Commission on Monday.

The panel was created at the party’s national convention in July as a last-minute compromise between supporters of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and those of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who were demanding the elimination of super-delegates from presidential primaries. The commission will now begin the process of discussing reforms to the party’s presidential nominating process, including hot-button issues like the role of super-delegates and caucuses. It will present its recommendations to the DNC by January 2018.

The 21-member commission includes nine members selected by Clinton, seven members picked by Sanders, three picked by Perez, and the chair and vice chair ― selected by Clinton and Sanders, respectively.

Below is a complete list of the commission members:

My thoughts:

1. I can't go into detail without getting deleted, but I will say that Weaver, Konst and Turner are liabilities to this commission and I mean Cornel West-sized liabilities...

2. Nice of the author to interview two Sanders folks, one of whom still has an axe to grind from the primaries, and the other is chasing "Hillary's unseen hand of power" -conspiracies... I have a sneaking suspicion there's not going to be a lot of "unity" here...

Final answer: *NOBODY* trolls half as well as the Russians

Rachel Maddow gets thrown under the bus by you-know-who

How many liberals and Dems has the Intercept (and The Young Turks after a huge infusion of GOP cash) smeared for doing the right thing in their short history? How long can they keep up this "Just because we hate the anti-Trump people doesn't mean we actually support Trump!" bullshit with a straight face?
