I’m pretty sure every Berniecrat with a blog is writing about this same thing tonight, but I don’t care. This is important.
The judge, Judge Zloch, in the Beck v. DNC lawsuit which has already been dragged out over a year (justice delayed is justice denied, it seems quite literally in this case) has ruled not to hear the case, even though he wrote in his ruling: “In evaluating Plaintiffs’ claims at this stage, the Court assumes their allegations are true—that the DNC and Wasserman Schultz held a palpable bias in favor of Clinton and sought to propel her ahead of her Democratic opponent”
In other words, he knows they are guilty, but doesn’t care. It’s outrageous.
His justifications were more technical than substantial. “No concrete injury?” What did he expect, for the plaintiffs to roll in in wheelchairs with fake neck braces or something? If you don’t actually get run over by a truck, you’re not allowed to sue?
What the DNC did was way beyond garden variety dirty politics. They decided the winner before the primaries had started. Of course, they still had primaries, because they wanted the voters to think they had a choice, even though we didn’t. If this had been professional sports, somebody would be banned for life.
I certainly hope there is an appeal, and this horrible, horrible decision is overturned. But today is a dark day. No doubt about that.
