|Fighting Voter Suppression|
The Alabama Democratic Party has 90 days to hold an election for its chairman and vice chairman positions.That's right (pun intended) the party that Booed Representative Maxine Waters and mocked members of the House of Representatives who were trying to tell them there were voting irregularities not once but twice, overturned an election over alleged voting irregularities.
That’s according to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which has vacated the state party’s 2018 officer elections following a vote by the credentials committee on Thursday afternoon.
Current Party Chair Nancy Worley and her Vice Chair Randy Kelley will also be allowed to continue serving in their respective roles until the election, which will be overseen by the DNC, takes places.
The DNC’s decisions follows an evidentiary hearing held Monday regarding two complaints lodged against the 2018 officer elections.
“With (Worley) and (Kelley) presiding over the meeting,” one complaint read. “The elections were conducted in a sloppy and haphazard manner that was easily susceptible to manipulation. The elections were deliberately manipulated in order to favor Worley, Kelley and all other incumbent SDEC officers.”
Worley had won re-election in August by a narrow margin of 101-89 against a challenger who was backed by U.S. Sen. Doug Jones. According to the AP, one challenge alleges that, while these 190 votes were recorded only 142 state committee members signed in to the meeting.
“Is there one United States senator who will join me in this letter of objection?” Waters said to boos from Republicans. None did.Although the white male dominated media claims the DNC (Democratic National Committee) overturned the ADP it was the DNC Credentials Committee who did the dirty deed. There is just one problem...EYE can't find where the DNC Credential Committee has the authority to overturn and supervise a state party election.
As Waters began to speak, House Speaker Paul Ryan was seen seated behind Biden laughing at the overture.
After the vote, Biden told some of the House Democrats who tried to object why he had cut them off.
“Basically, it was the rules and we understand that,” said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, who led the effort to object to Trump’s election.
Trump received 304 electoral votes, compared with the 227 won by his Democratic challenger, Hillary Clinton, according to the official vote tally.
Credentials Committee:The DNC Credentials Committee made a recommendation but the DNC has the final say so it's not over.
The Credentials Committee is responsible for resolving any questions regarding the seating of delegates and alternates to the Convention. This committee is expected to meet sometime prior to the Convention.
Assumes jurisdiction over any credentials challenges not resolved by the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee 57 days before the Convention, or challenges filed after that date.
Recommends final resolution of any outstanding challenge or dispute related to the seating of delegates and alternates.
Issues a report that is considered as the first item of business at the National Convention.
HOW IS BUSINESS BROUGHT BEFORE THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE?
DNC members often make proposals on national issues, Party policies, and procedures. Before a matter is considered by the full membership, it is reviewed by one of the DNC’s standing committees. Each of the DNC’s standing committees have about 30 members who represent a cross-section of the membership of the full committee. These committees report their recommendations on the matters before them to the full DNC, which in turn debates and votes on the recommendations.So time will tell if the DNC is going to overthrow the election of Nancy Worley and Randy Kelly and supervise a new election. And if they do vote to overturn the election, who is going to supervise the DNC Credentials Committee? If the recommendation to overturn the election due to alleged voting irregularities is upheld by the DNC it will set the ADP on a course of no return.
The Credentials Committee is responsible for hearing disputes about the credentials of National Committee members, and making a recommendation about whom the DNC should seat.
And what do you have if you get rid of Reed and his bunch of people?Be careful what you ask for.
The Dixiecrats were a political party organized in the summer of 1948 by conservative white southern Democrats committed to states' rights and the maintenance of segregation and opposed to federal intervention into race, and to a lesser degree, labor relations. The Dixiecrats, formally known as the States' Rights Democratic Party, were disturbed by their region's declining influence within the national Democratic Party. The Dixiecrats held their one and only convention in Birmingham.
