5. The DCCC and Chairman Rahm Emanuel
I have been extremely worried about DLC (Corporate) influence in the Democratic Primaries.
Is this the Big Link?

About the DCCC (from their website):

"The DCCC is supported by the contributions of individuals and other groups from throughout the country who are committed to returning the People's House to the People of this country. We are not an affiliate of the Democratic National Committee and do not receive regular funding from the DNC." /

Who are these "other groups" that fund the DCCC, and are they the same "other groups" that fund the DLC?
Is the DCCC a "Private Organization" directing funds and support to their personal "chosen" candidates?

"The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) serves as the official national Democratic campaign committee charged with recruiting, assisting, funding, and electing Democrats to the U. S. House of Representatives. We provide services ranging from designing and helping execute field operations, to polling, creating radio and television commercials, fund raising, communications, and management consulting." /

The use of the phrase "serves as the official" bothers me.
It seems to me that this is a way for this organization to avoid accountability to the Democratic Party or Democratic Party members.
It is clear from the above statement that they are a powerful, active influence in Democratic Party Primaries.

The Chairman of the DCCC IS a direct link to the DLC!!!

"The DCCC is now chaired by Congressman Rahm Emanuel from the 5th district of Illinois in Chicago. In the 1980s, Mr. Emanuel held senior staff positions at the DCCC, and helped the Democrats win and maintain their House majorities." /

Rahm Emanuel IS a proud member of the DLC!

Mr. Emanuel is featured prominently on the NDOL (DLC)Website. He is a regular Featured Speaker on Economic Policy at DLC conventions and conferences. It is clear that he supports the Economic Policies pushed by the DLC and the Corporate Leadership in America.

I am currently websearching for more info on the funding, membership, history, and influence of the DCCC in Democratic Primaries. I am especially interested in DCCC connections to the DLC.

How much REAL POWER is in the hands of the DCCC?
Who are THEY?...and to whom does the DCCC answer?
I may be overly paranoid, but I am suspicious of DLC (Corporate) rigging of Primary elections!

If you can add to the data I have here, please do so!
