Now if this happened in 49 more states the Dems might thrive.

It has been mentioned previously but this article might give it the attention it deserves.

NOT LONG AFTER Judith Whitmer won her election on Saturday to become chair of the Nevada Democratic Party, she got an email from the party’s executive director, Alana Mounce. The message from Mounce began with a note of congratulations, before getting to her main point.

She was quitting. So was every other employee. And so were all the consultants. And the staff would be taking severance checks with them, thank you very much.

On March 6, a coalition of progressive candidates backed by the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America took over the leadership of the Nevada Democratic Party, sweeping all five party leadership positions in a contested election that evening. Whitmer, who had been chair of the Clark County Democratic Party, was elected chair. The incumbents had prepared for the loss, having recently moved $450,000 out of the party’s coffers and into the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s account. The DSCC will put the money toward the 2022 reelection bid of Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, a vulnerable first-term Democrat.

While Whitmer’s opponents say she was planning to fire them anyway, Whitmer denies that claim. “I’ve been putting in the work,” Whitmer told The Intercept for the latest episode of Deconstructed. “What they just didn’t expect is that we got better and better at organizing and out-organizing them at every turn.”

THE BATTLE BETWEEN the insurgent progressive wing of the party and what’s known in Nevada as the Reid machine — a tightly run operation still guided by former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — began five years ago, when Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders organized support for his 2016 presidential primary run, while Reid was working behind the scenes to help his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The present Democratic party is corrupt and this has to happen multiple times.

The whole article is worth a read as it is quite revealing.

Losers proved their corruption by moving a lot of money once they knew they would lose. I guess they left enough to cover severance checks for everyone. Interesting to learn some of these details.

institutional knowledge on the day to day running of things and going home. Oh, and the money. What a bunch of a-holes! I hope the new brooms can overcome these underhanded tactics and that more states can follow their example.

but am wondering what the "more and better democrats, vote blue no matter who" pack of fools are saying about it. Probably some thing along the lines of how they're not real democrats.

@The Liberal Moonbat

has either left or been banned and all that is left is an echo chamber of people saying that Biden-Harris walk on water. Quite a few did try to talk about the Manch screwing everything up, but they got swatted down by the democrat gatekeepers. Machin gives democrats the majority but then he blocks every decent bill to give democrats cover to not pass anything. Point out that he’s the current Lieberman and bam you’re gone. It’s a f’cking möbius circle jerk.

The donor class doesn’t want it, and Americans elect the bribed. So suck it up.

for the old guard. They’re having a sad and taking their shit and going home. Perhaps this means the dimwits can change from the inside. Only time will prove it out.

But the national party will make sure this will NEVER happen again in any State by simply changing their bylaws. The courts have already given them carte balance to do so.

Bar anyone from holding party leadership positions who:
-Ever used the word “Socalist” in public.
-Ever voted for, worked for or endorsed Bernie Sanders or Ralph Nader.
-Ever implied that capitalism was anything less than a perfect economic system.
-Ever worked to primary an incumbent (of either party)

Problem solved.

1: DSA has done a whole lotta talking, but when push comes to shoving Pelosi out the door or getting a floor vote on M4A, not even a little bit of walking.
2: this is The Intercept reporting on this. They sold out.
3: see #1 again. DSA all talk no walk.

They said that the Manch was being misogynistic and sexist by not voting for her. They seem to be in the lesser evil voting category of democrats.

The woman with the poison keyboard is now the Executive Directory of the DNC. The gold old boys/girls of the establishment know how to take care of their own (which doesn't include the rank and file of the party).
