Over the weekend, a DNC committee reinstated delegates from Florida and Michigan, awarding them half a vote each as punishment for holding their respective primaries before February 5 in violation of party rules. The committee awarded Barack Obama 59 delegates from Michigan, despite his name not appearing on the ballot. It has been reported that “Many Obama supporters voted for “uncommitted” on the ballot as a way of showing support for Obama.” Yea, that’s what I would say if I wanted to hand some delegates to him too.
You may recall a few years back when the Democrats lost an election based on the outcome of the Florida vote they were strong, or you might say the strongest advocates of protecting every vote as being essential and that somehow the voters of Florida were being disenfranchised. Fast forward to present day, the DNC is totally willing to disenfranchise Democrat voters, ie Michigan and Florida. Just seems inconsistent, what do you think?
