Dem mix-up let woman run for job she can't have

So much for it being a man's job to serve as the 11th Congressional District's alternate delegate to the Democratic National Convention. Read more

Democratic Party rules reserve the position for a man to keep gender balance, and the ballot reminded voters of that.
A rule like this still exits? I'm surprised.

Rules aimed at inclusion were put into place around 1972 for election of delegates to the Democratic National Convention. They allow the convention delegates to be a better reflection a diverse electorate. It is ironic that rules placed to provide opportunities for women and others to serve as delegates led to this woman's exclusion, but a 50/50 gender split is the goal of the rules. Now that women comprise more than 50% of the electorate, men who resisted the rule at the outset might be relieved there is such a rule.

What does it matter if one is a woman or not. Every one should have the right to run or not, no matter what sex gender one is. What a discrimination this article is saying on what the ruling is.

Yah!

Who cares! It is is only a rule.

Rules & Laws are only a pain in the butt for Democrats. Just look at the Democrat Primaries in Florida & Michigan.

Anyway, in the Democrat Party, what really is is a man???
I think most Dems would say that Hillary Rotten Clinton qualifies as a man. Certainly HRC was the only candidate the have with a set of balls.

So much for Democracy in the Democratic Party.

So much for selecting the best candidate for office regardless of gender or race.

Finally, if Mrs. Clinton can't run the campaign any better than this, who still thinks she can do a good job running the executive branch of our national government and do a better job than the Doctors when she takes over your health care?

Why are you surprised? The Democratic Party is the party of quotas for race and gender. This rule made not to ensure a man gets a spot, but to ensure there are "enough" women and racial minorities, what voters want be damned.

Democratic enough for ya? ;)

Did Rush know,
and when did he set this up????
hahahahahahahahaha

The Lehigh County Voter Reg office let a disbarred attorney run for re-election for the district judge seat that she currently held and had to vacate by law while she was trying to dispute it.
The Pa. Constitution says clearly that an attorney who loses their license to practice law SHALL be immediately expelled from their bench and NEVER judge anyone again.
It also says it the Pa. judicial code as well.
No one kicked her fat @ss off of the bench for 14 months, and when it came before the Pa. Supreme Court they told her that she had no right to appeal because she gave up that right when she voluntarily gave up her law license to avoid 6 hearing s for the 6 different complaint cases against her by her private legal clients that she screwed over.

That pig never had to pay back a dime of the 14 months salary that she took and wasn't entitled to, nor did the courts recall any of the cases that she wrongfully decided illegally from the bench when she didn't belong on it.
The President Judge of Lehigh County never got censured for NOT doing his job and getting her off of the bench right away.
And because she was allowed to run illegally for the same bench and won, when she demanded to be sworn in, she was and the Pa. Supreme Court ordered her off of the bench the same day.
BUT, we had to hold another DJ election in the next municipal election 2 years later.

These were ALL DEMOCRATS folks!!!!!
Except for the idiot that ran the Voter Reg, she was just a fat @ss lazy POS.

I would like to see everyone with a complaint do the job they are complaining about for one month. They had better do it better than the person currently assigned and not make any errors or ommissions. It had better be absolutely perfect, and so should the background of each of them and their families. There should be no skeletons in closets, no misrepresentations, no slips of the tongue, no mistakes in judgement or any of that. EVER, in the past or during their tenure in the position. THEN, I would like to hear what they have to say. You know, there is too much finger pointing in this world, and it takes valuable time and energy away from the things that really need to be done. Shame on all of us for participating.

The 1 hour documentary entitled Hillary!Uncensored debuted on youperview.com (a pay per view site) on November 5, after its unedited 13 minute trailer became an internet phenomenon in October, ranking #1 on Google’s Top 100 internationally when more than 3 million views were recoded over a four week period.

The 1 hour documentary, unlike the trailer, presents detailed evidence that a series of crimes may have been directed by Hillary Clinton, with the help of Bill Clinton, to win her Senate seat in 2000 and then win re-election in 2006. The most serious of these alleged illegalities relate to the most comprehensive obstruction of justice since Watergate- since all three branches of government are alleged to have been compromised by the Clintons in the investigations and prosecutions they engaged in surrounding the underlying campaign finance illegalities attributed to Hillary and Bill.

The documentary reveals and documents for the first time evidence of possible corruption of the Department of Justice, Office of Public Integrity, as directed by its Chief, Noel Hillman, from 2001-2006.

While Mr Hillman led the investigation and subsequent “non-prosecution” of Clinton National Security adviser Sandy Berger (2003-2006) for destroying unique hand annotated documents by Clinton that established Clinton’s refusal to permit capture or assassination of Bin Laden pre-911, Hillman was also directing the investigation and subsequent trial in (2003-2005) of Hillary’s finance director, David Rosen for doing something Hillman knew he did not and could not do- hiding the cost of the Hollywood fundraising Gala that he knew Hillary and her staff coordinated with Peter Paul.

Hillman obtained Rosen’s sealed Los Angeles Grand Jury indictment in November, 2003,(coincidentally just two months after Peter Paul survived his two year ordeal in Brazilian dungeons and returned to the US to refile his civil fraud suit against the Clintons and Rosen in October, 2003) three counts of Rosen’s causing false FEC reports to be filed by Hillary’s Senate campaign because the campaign allegedly relied exclusively on false information Rosen provided.

Hillman and the Department of Justice knew Rosen could not be legally culpable for these indicted acts because of proffers and complaints made by Peter Paul and Aaron Tonken and published newspaper reports quoting Hillary’s spokesman Howard Wolfson.

The Grand Jury and the Judge in the case were apparently never presented with the statement by Hillary’s spokesman, Howard Wolfson, who also spoke on behalf of Hillary’s Senate campaign, that was published in the Washington Post three months before the first false FEC report was ever filed attributed to Rosen’s concealment of the true $1 million plus cost of the Gala. Wolfson acknowledged to the Post that the campaign knew the Gala’s true cost was over $1 million (not $377,000 as reported 2 months later by Rosen) and that it was an “in kind” contribution. Wolfson and his statement was never referred to or presented as a witness before the grand jury that indicted Rosen in 2003, or the Judge and jury that tried him in 2005. Yet Wolfson’s statement- and the facts surrounding how he knew the cost of the event, was included in Peter Paul’s FEC complaint filed in July, 2001.
