    DWS resigned but was there any legal reason? Is the DNC bound by any laws to be fair?

    My understanding is that a couple more staffers resigned also over this E-Mail mess, fair??? As we have noticed over the last couple elections ,there is no fairness in Political Campaigns only the results count.

    I'm just glad that she's out. Something I'd like to strongly suggest is that all persons should speak up. When the talk started that DWS was in serious trouble because of the e mails..... I e mailed the Florida Democratic agencies. My first e mail said I'm voting for Hillary but don't like DWS at all. The next morning it was all over the news. I then e mailed again but then I said I don't like DWS and as far as Nov. is concerned, perhaps you have more votes than you need and I'll look at all options. Later that day it all started to come apart. Did I do this ? Of course not. But if my e mails were 2 out of 50,000 then maybe the 50,000 were listened to.

    Too many guys bitch over a beer among 3 friends but don't put it in writing. I am a fan of putting it in print.

    The DNC and RNC are private entities. They can force out their top management in the same way a Fortune 500 Company can force out theirs.

    What does this even mean?

    Political parties have chosen how to elect their nominees since political parties were formed hundreds of years ago. It used to be done in a back room filled with a bunch of rich old white men who let the common people believe that they were actually having a say in who the nominee would be. Now it's done by letting primary voters have their say. That is unless a state holds a caucus (which, as Schmidt has oft pointed out is pretty much the most undemocratic way to nominate someone.)


    And this whole e-mail "mess" is a bunch of bullshit anyway. Bernie Sanders is a registered Independent who attempted to hijack the Democratic Party. He only registered as a Democrat for the primary. Is anyone surprised that individuals within the Democratic National Committee were writing e-mails trying to figure out a way to push back against that?


    What we really should be talking about is how it's extremely likely that the Russian government hacked the DNC and released the emails the day before the Democratic National Convention in an attempt to tip the scales towards a candidate that has business ties with Russia and whose campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was on the payroll of former Ukrainian President (and Russian pawn) Viktor Yanukovych.
