In response to last week’s Democratic View, once again we have the DTC chair throwing out fact-twisting, dishonest diatribes. Rep. John Frey detailed some of those traits in his letter in the same paper.
How can you say that the RNC supporting Trump for re-election is unprecedented and irregular — his approval/disapproval ratings are the same as Obama’s at this point in his administration. Are you going to tell me that the DNC was not 100% behind Obama, barring any other candidate, as he made a try for his second term?
And how about the scandal at the DNC? By August 2015, the DNC was essentially bankrupt, so the Clinton campaign bailed it out and effectively took it over.
“The agreement — signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias — specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff,” Donna Brazile wrote in an explosive excerpt of her book.
In 2016, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz did everything she could to tilt the primary process towards Hillary Clinton, despite DNC rules that the chairperson remain neutral, after which she resigned in disgrace. No problem with that?
Two thirds of the Democratic column is spent disparaging John Frey, saying that he is advancing an agenda opposed by the vast majority of the community he was elected to serve. Wrong. John has been voted into office 10 times, including in the 2018 election. I think he represents our interests pretty well, and I’ll take him over clowns like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez any day of the week.
