Bernie Sanders Repudiates ‘Whores’ Comment At His Rally But The Damage Is Done


Bernie Sanders Repudiates ‘Whores’ Comment At His Rally But The Damage Is Done
By Jason Easley on Thu, Apr 14th, 2016 at 10:55 am

Dr. Song sounded like an insensitive extremist, and that, in a nutshell, is the overarching problem that the Sanders campaign is facing. In open primaries, Independents can be courted with outsider rhetoric. In a series of closed Democratic primaries, in a party where women are the majority, comments like Dr. Song’s lose votes for the candidates that they support.

Song was criticizing Democrats in a closed Democratic primary. Needless to say, this is not a winning strategy. His comments only fanned the doubts of Democrats who believe that Sen. Sanders is not a real Democrat.

In practical terms, Bernie Sanders isn’t going to win closed Democratic primaries without Democratic votes. It is also not good to enrage the very superdelegates that Sen. Sanders needs if he is going to win the Democratic nomination by calling them corporate whores.

Bernie Sanders Says Democratic Primary Schedule ‘Distorts Reality’

Bernie Sanders Says Democratic Primary Schedule ‘Distorts Reality’
Sam Frizell @Sam_Frizell 6:43 PM ET

"I think that having so many Southern states go first kind of distorts reality"

Bernie Sanders told “Nightly Show” host Larry Wilmore at a taping Wednesday evening that scheduling Southern states early in the Democratic primary “distorts reality.”

Black voters make up a disproportionate share of the Democratic electorate in those Southern states, and constitute a voting bloc in which Sanders has consistently underperformed.

The Vermont senator has been more successful in smaller, whiter and more liberal states like Maine, Washington and Minnesota. Sanders has also been able to win a slightly larger portion of black voters in northern states like Michigan and Illinois, exit polls showed.

Sanders wants to disenfranchise the base of the democratic party!

New York City's largest public employee union, endorses Hillary Clinton for president.

Hillary Clinton for President
Posted on April 13, 2016 by gheires in Newsroom, Politics, unions, 2016 Election

Our national union, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, and DC 37 have worked closely with Clinton for decades. When she was first lady in Washington, D.C., Clinton welcomed AFSCME’s input as she led the effort to develop the Clinton administration’s health-care plan.

As senator, Clinton supported key issues of concern to DC 37 members and poor and middle-class New Yorkers.

This editorial is from the April issue of Public Employee Press, DC 37 official publication.
