The Alabama Democratic Party: "We're broke, broke, broke."
Birmingham News ^ | May 12, 2013 | Charles J. Dean

Posted on 05/12/2013 9:49:37 AM PDT by Zakeet

Acting state Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy Worley lowered her head and slowly shook it side to side when summing up the financial condition of her once powerful party.

"We're broke, broke, broke," Worley told the party's Executive Board in a special called meeting Frida.

How broke is broke? Worley didn't sugar coat the answer.

"This is my 18th day as chair and thirty minutes after I took over on April 22nd the landlord of the building where our party headquarters are came in and said he wanted us out, that the rent was overdue and was always overdue," said Worley.

Next came the water company with a message, said Worley: pay up by the next day or we're cutting off the water. Next came the same warning from Alabama Power. Next came news from banks that party credit cards had been maxed out and were now cancelled.

"I didn't even know where the checkbook was, not that it would have made much difference," said Worley.

Worley said she dealt with each demand for back payments the same way.

"I begged them to give me a few more days, that I had just taken over the job and needed a little time" said Worley. "I have never done that much begging in my life."

Have they thought about printing more money? Doesn’t that always work?

Their financial problems are the least of their brokenness; indeed, their financial problems are the result of their moral brokenness.

Several weeks ago I read an article about a dem starting a new dem party. Wonder if he knew about this. Of course, he did. I also wonder if the libs who post on al.com donate to their party.

Silly woman! All she has to do is contact the Chinese or SA and they will send all the money (in amounts under $100) in ficticious names.

The dems will be rolling in cash in no time.

(and NO, I’m not being sarcastic.)

Hasn’t there been some kind of ‘under breath’ moaning and groaning because BO is STILL out running fund raisers and sucking the money away from the party?

If these people ever ‘wake up’ BO will be in a heap of feces.

But I don’t see that happening anytime soon, they still think Jimmy Carter and Willy Clinton were GREAT.

What a GREAT idea! He should make it even further left, with open use of the hammer and sickle and Karl Marx's image. I'm sure they'd fare even better than the current Democrat Party if they would just tell the people who they really are.

America once the dollar collapses (Cloward-Piven, communism and QE-X inflation). Hussein is to US what Kennedy was to the Alabama Rats. Pity the fools: no jobs, no ammo, no party, no garden, no brains, no morals, no nuttin’ but troubles and savages for neighbors. The water has boiled out of the pan and it is getting hot; their fat a$$’s will sizzel and pop.

I'm so sad... ask the CT Democratic party for cash... (and maybe you can help them become broke --- Fiscally, they are MORALLY BROKE)

She took the job and then immediately found out the accounts were empty, the credit cards maxed out and the bills unpaid. Sounds to me like the last President of the AL Dem Party slipped out the back door with full bags.

Now she knows what it will be like for the next Republican President of the United States.
