If ONLY Democrat Activists in California Believed in Voter ID

The party is already in bad shape. If we show peo­ple we’re a bunch of thieves, it will destroy us. In the name of party unity, please drop this fight.

Paul Dever 1948 to Tip O’Neill after steal­ing a party pri­mary from him

Then per­haps they wouldn’t have to worry about this:

At the heart of this mat­ter is a know­able fact: are the votes of the DSCC del­e­gates that were cast and counted on Sat­ur­day, May 20 in the Cal­i­for­nia Demo­c­ra­tic Party elec­tions accu­rate and valid?

To answer this ques­tion, the Cal­i­for­nia Demo­c­ra­tic Party will need to inves­ti­gate the pos­si­bil­ity that indi­vid­u­als who secured del­e­gate badges were not, in fact, those actual del­e­gates. Addi­tion­ally, the CDP will need to deter­mine why inel­i­gi­ble indi­vid­u­als were awarded del­e­gate badges as prox­ies and were not

screened out. The CDP will also need to explain why finan­cial eli­gi­bil­ity is not clearly marked on cre­den­tial­ing mate­ri­als. Finally, the CDP will have to answer how mul­ti­ple indi­vid­u­als were able to obtain mul­ti­ple bal­lots and vote more than once.

This is what we’re get­ting Kim­berly Ellis a San Fran­cisco activist con­cern­ing her run for state chair against Eric C. Bau­man as the NYT reports

The party is expected to issue a final rul­ing on Ms. Ellis’s alle­ga­tions by Aug. 20; in an inter­view, she said she would go to court if the party ruled against her. This has left Mr. Bau­man, who encoun­tered a bar­rage of shouts of “not my chair­man” when he deliv­ered his vic­tory speech, strug­gling to put behind him a con­test that has been the sub­ject of recounts even as he seeks to posi­tion Democ­rats for a chal­leng­ing con­gres­sional elec­tion in 2018.

The irony of the same Demo­c­rat activists who have insisted for years that voter ID is racism and that voter fraud is a myth are going whole hog into this fight is delight­ful, but what’s really inter­est­ing is the con­trast to 1948 when James Michael Curly and his machine stole a del­e­gate elec­tion from Tip O’Neill and fig­ured (cor­rectly) that O’Neill would in the end drop his con­test­ing of the elec­tion because such a rev­e­la­tion would have destroyed the Demo­c­rat party in Mass­a­chu­setts at a time when the party had never held a major­ity in the Mass­a­chu­setts House of Representatives.

That will­ing­ness to hide cor­rup­tion paid off. Other than a brief period from 19531954 the Democ­rats had had the major­ity in the state ever since from that point on Tip O’Neill’s was set on a path that would lead him to the Speak­er­ship of the House of Representatives.

Of course Cal­i­for­nia circa 2017 is not Mass­a­chu­setts circa 1948 and I seri­ously doubt that a A black woman who sup­ports Bernie Sanders with a cam­paign slo­gan “Unbought and Unbossed” is going to left the party steal an elec­tion ( assum­ing they actu­ally did ). With the Democ­rats super­ma­jor­ity in the state and cur­rent demo­graph­ics I doubt even being exposed as a bunch of thieves can cost them the Major­ity in California.

But we can still hope can’t we?

A quick Lay­off bleg update. Yes­ter­day was the sched­uled end to my lay­off bleg and I’m sorry to say we didn’t man­age half of the goal I had set although we did man­age to raise enough to get me a pay­check this week and next week. This will make August a very lean month.

So if you are inclined and at all able I would ask you to hit DaTip­Jar at this time even if we don’t make the goal another $315 will mean a full pay­check for August 25th.

Update: At the last minute a tip jar hit brought us to $1365 (not count­ing pay­pal fees of course) that makes us only 2 $15 tip­jar hits away from that Aug 25th pay­check and just 12 $100 tip­jar hits from mak­ing the entire goal and guar­an­tee­ing me a pay­check till the day Stacy McCain Makes his speech in Leomin­ster MA Sept 9th.

Please con­sider get­ting us to that point.

The party is already in bad shape. If we show people we’re a bunch of thieves, it will destroy us. In the name of party unity, please drop this fight.

Paul Dever 1948 to Tip O’Neill after stealing a party primary from him

Then perhaps they wouldn’t have to worry about this:

At the heart of this matter is a knowable fact: are the votes of the DSCC delegates that were cast and counted on Saturday, May 20 in the California Democratic Party elections accurate and valid?

To answer this question, the California Democratic Party will need to investigate the possibility that individuals who secured delegate badges were not, in fact, those actual delegates. Additionally, the CDP will need to determine why ineligible individuals were awarded delegate badges as proxies and were not

screened out. The CDP will also need to explain why financial eligibility is not clearly marked on credentialing materials. Finally, the CDP will have to answer how multiple individuals were able to obtain multiple ballots and vote more than once.

This is what we’re getting Kimberly Ellis a San Francisco activist concerning her run for state chair against Eric C. Bauman as the NYT reports

The party is expected to issue a final ruling on Ms. Ellis’s allegations by Aug. 20; in an interview, she said she would go to court if the party ruled against her. This has left Mr. Bauman, who encountered a barrage of shouts of “not my chairman” when he delivered his victory speech, struggling to put behind him a contest that has been the subject of recounts even as he seeks to position Democrats for a challenging congressional election in 2018.

The irony of the same Democrat activists who have insisted for years that voter ID is racism and that voter fraud is a myth are going whole hog into this fight is delightful, but what’s really interesting is the contrast to 1948 when James Michael Curly and his machine stole a delegate election from Tip O’Neill and figured (correctly) that O’Neill would in the end drop his contesting of the election because such a revelation would have destroyed the Democrat party in Massachusetts at a time when the party had never held a majority in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

That willingness to hide corruption paid off.  Other than a brief period from 1953-1954 the Democrats had had the majority in the state ever since from that point on Tip O’Neill’s was set on a path that would lead him to the Speakership of the House of Representatives.

Of course California circa 2017 is not Massachusetts circa 1948 and I seriously doubt that a A black woman who supports Bernie Sanders with a campaign slogan “Unbought and Unbossed” is going to left the party steal an election ( assuming they actually did ). With the Democrats supermajority in the state and current demographics  I doubt even being exposed as a bunch of thieves can cost them the Majority in California.

But we can still hope can’t we?
