A Lawsuit to Watch

It isn’t over  until  we win.   This explains why Bernie  is still  out there, fighting for medicare for all, while most Democrats are doing diddly squat outside of whining.  Because we  are still  trying to win, and they are still  crying about their well deserved loss.

It’s a slogan I quite like, because it gives  me hope for the future, long term.

My short term hope is a court case which begins tomorrow.  It’s the class action lawsuit that was  brought against the DNC back in June, before the Democratic convention even, by  people who donated to  the DNC and are pissed off that that money went straight into the Clinton campaign.  The suit claims that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the head of the DNC at that time,  and her staff overtly violated article four, section 5 of the DNC Charter, which says “The Chairperson shall exercise impartiality and evenhandedness between the Presidential candidates and campaigns. The Chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic Party Presidential nominating process.”

I sure hope the court rules against the DNC.  I doubt that anybody’s going to jail, but if it’s at least entered into the official  record that they cheated, that will make things a lot  easier.

If the court  finds against us, which is a definite possibility,  (right is on our side, but courts are capricious institutions, no doubt about it) then our struggle  will  continue.  Because it will not  be over until we’ve won.

    Assuming there are some younger (under 60) Democrats that have learned a lot of lessons from this last election… and
    Looking forward, are there ANY candidates (under 60) that will excite or inspire your country? (At least 2 hopefully)
    I live in Canada, and we had our Trudeau moment, and people got excited (after 2 lackluster candidates losing to the Conservatives).
    Is there any hope for the future? Any YOUNG Bernies in the DNC?
