Bernie's New Book & What it Says About the Dem Primary
“This was on the surface, an absurd and undemocratic process,” he writes of New York’s early deadline to register for the closed primary, which limited the ability of independents to vote for Sanders or new voters to register closer to the primary date, a hurdle that many of Sanders backers were unable to clear.
In Arizona, where the Justice Department later investigated claims of voter suppression and the lack of polling places in predominately Latino neighborhoods, he describes a voting process that was “an absolute disaster and an embarrassment to the American democracy.”
Then there’s California, where the revolution finally expired on June 7. Sanders continues to lambaste the Associated Press for its story declaring that Clinton had enough delegates to claim the Democratic nomination — one day before the nation’s biggest state and a handful of others held their primaries. Such a move was, he wrote, “one of the more outrageous moments of the entire campaign.”
“It’s not clear to me why they did that, but I believe strongly that their action had a negative impact on voter turnout and hurt us,” he writes.
The article suggests he pulls his punches. Here's the bit they post on what he said about Clinton:
“Hillary Clinton was a key player in the centrist Democratic establishment, which had, over the years, been forged by her husband Bill Clinton,” Sanders writes. “The Clinton approach was to try to merge the interests of Wall Street and corporate America with the needs of the middle class — an impossible task.”
So, um, I guess it's not quite a 'tell all' piece.
