Please welcome the new DNC Finance Chair

DNC Finance Chair Affirms Neutrality In Response To Concerns From Bernie Sanders Allies

Mouseboy must really really be all over this... How many trucks of roses this time?

The Democratic National Committee’s new finance chair, Chris Korge, affirmed his commitment to neutrality in the presidential primary in response to scrutiny of past comments criticizing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and a donation to the campaign of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).

At issue are comments Korge has made about Sanders prior to accepting the job at the DNC. He retweeted a message in December calling Sanders “dangerous to the future of the Democratic Party.”

During the 2016 primary, Korge was a major donor and bundler for Hillary Clinton, and he repeatedly blasted Sanders on social media.

For example, in March 2016, Korge tweeted, “The only Bern the middle class will feel from Bernie is the pain from all the tax increases.”

Korge also contributed $2,700 to Sen. Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign in late January.

In addition, in 2000, a former law partner of Korge’s sued him for cheating him on his share of the firm’s profits. The former partner also accused Korge of using funds from their firm to cover personal expenses, including the costs of a DNC fundraiser. Korge denied wrongdoing and settled with the former partner out of court.

(shush. In the tags is BOHICA. An outstanding member of ToP. this is not about him, but now you should google it... it's an acronym. shush.)

Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end the faster it goes.

(2) Sanders is running to be the Democratic Presidential nominee, who would be the head of the Democratic Party.
(3) (2) Korge believes that Sanders is dangerous to the future of the Democratic Party.
(4) Korge apparently believes that one of Sanders' many rivals for the Democratic Presidential nomination, Kamala Harris, would be good for the Democratic Party.
(5) From about 2014 until recently, I thought Harris would be the next anointee of the DNC for the Democratic Presidential nomination, but, lately, I've been wondering.

Korge promises to be neutral. Why, OF COURSE, "I take him at his word." Don't you?

Seriously? This dude is committing to running the primary fair and square this time? Whilst getting as many clowns in the DP clown car as possible so that no one can win during the first votes? Alrighty then.... guess I'll start paying attention to what the candidates are saying so I can be sure that my vote is counted.

Jayzus can the democrats get any more tone deaf? From appointing this dude to the DCCC having a fundraiser for the most anti abortion candidate evah right after Alabama and Missouri just passed their no abortion laws? Gee you'd think that they are trying to lose.

America is a pathetic nation; a fascist state fueled by the greed, malice, and stupidity of her own people.
