Shakeup at Democratic National Committee, Longtime Officials Ousted
NBC (fake news) ^ | 10-18-17 | ALEX SEITZ-WALD

Posted on 10/18/2017 7:08:31 PM PDT by dynachrome

The removal and demotion of a handful of veteran operatives stood out, as did what critics charge is the over-representation of Clinton-backed members on the Rules and Bylaws Committee, which helps set the terms for the party's presidential primary, though other Sanders and Ellison backers remain represented.

Those who have been pushed out include:

Ray Buckley, the New Hampshire Democratic chairman and longtime DNC official who ran against Perez for chair before backing Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., lost his spots on the Executive Committee and DNC Rules Committee;

James Zogby, the president of the Arab American Institute and prominent Sanders backer, is no longer co-chair of the Resolutions Committee and is off the Executive Committee, a sport he has held since 2001;

Alice Germond, the party’s longtime former secretary and a vocal Ellison backer, who was removed from her at-large appointment to the DNC; and Barbra Casbar Siperstein, the first transgender member of the DNC who supported Ellison and Buckley, was tossed from the Executive Committee.

“Siperstein, the first transgender member of the DNC, said, “I can’t speak for Tom (Perez), but you talk about diversity — I’m extremely diverse: Jewish, veteran, transgender, lesbian, grandparent, small-business owner.”

Needs to be black, hispanic, muzzie or he/she/it would still be on board.

OK, I didn’t read the whole thing. Once I learned the RATS haven’t learned anything, and continue down their self destructive road, I quit reading quite satisfied we haven’t anything to worry about.

Getting rid of Zogby says they are totally devoid of any realization of the truth.

When it comes to gauging the significance of the recent revelations vis-à-vis the Clinton Crime Family Foundation, the Russian uranium deal, etc., don’t pay attention to what the Democrats say, pay attention to what they do.

This could be a tangible reaction to that whole can of worms.

almost all the names I read were supporters of Ellison. Can you give an example?

"Despite the shakeup, Zogby, is still the co-chair of the party’s Unity and Reform Commission, said, "This is a family. We’ve always operated that way.""

ROFL. Yeah, a Mafia criminal family.... racketeering, blackmail, intimidation, theft, murder, and extortion among their many specialities!

Ellison and his supporters are still in the Democrat Party. They appear to be taking a ‘time out’ from the DNC until the political climate is more favorable to their cause.

Are the Rats cleaning house so they can turn even harder left? I hope so.
