At least they had enough votes to have a floor vote though!

And Hillary's DNC rams another fat one up Bernie's backside.

The meeting of 187 rules committee members took place inside a small room at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center that was apparently at capacity from the start, meaning that even leading national political reporters like the Washington Post’s David Weigel couldn’t get in.


So much for FREEDOM of the press.

That's what the Republican delegates thought too. It was already on the TelePrompter in Cleveland to say "the yeas have it", it was seen on the floor.

Pathetic.

There's no reason for Bernie to endorse a criminal, especially after this parade.

And to think that some members actually expect something good from Democratic party, while bashing on GOP. Well, at least during RNC people were allowed to speak their mind, and oppose Trump, while the same won't be allowed at DNC.

Pathetic. And I expect a warning because I insulted Democratic party

I don't get it. Isn't it a crime or something to tamper with elections???

How is this allowed exactly???

Although I guess they locked Ron Paul out of the debates too so maybe nothing is illegal in politics anymore.

We should just give them all swords and put them in a room together and whoever makes it out alive wins.

Because Hillary was predestined to be the candidate from the beginning. Bernie had no chance. What fine choices we have for this election; the lying Queen of Mean vs. the hip-shooting Master of Bloviation. He of Reality TV meets she who lives in her own reality. I wanted no Clinton or Bush to select from. I never thought that the Donald would make it this far. Can we have a do-over and get rid of both of these losers? Maybe Biden-Warren vs. Kasich-Rubio.

I see many angry Bernie supporters either not voting or spite voting for Trump because of the treachery of the DNC and Wasserman-Schulz.

There wasn't a criminal intention behind it.

That's my only guess. And I am not even joking

Shouldn't locking delegates out of a vote be illegal though??

If so then there is criminal intent isn't there??

The intent to falsify a vote by locking out certain members from their lawful right to cast their vote???

Hey, I agree with you, but the FBI director wouldn't.

Wasserman was simply extremely careless...

This isn't an election. It is a political party choosing a candidate making up rules as they go along. They could make up a rule that said anyone named Hillary would be the candidate. If all agreed [read if the committee were stacked, 'all' would agree] then that is what would happen.

I'm fine with that even. I'm sure incompetence is still a valid reason for her dismissal and to hold another vote. Her dismissal at the very least.

This is why this stuff happens in the first place. Because people are allowed to be corrupt and plead that it was a mistake, or an error and just say sorry. But last time I checked people all over the world get fired or removed from important positions for making mistakes in their job. So why not politics??? Incompetence might explain it but it doesn't excuse it.

Fire the b*tch.

No, this vote was for members of the Rules & Bylaws Committee. Bernie delegates were removed for *ahem* lack of space, although I am sure their chanting "One person, One vote!" had something to do with it.

The delegates will get to vote on the proposed amendment on the floor of the convention.

So the rules committee chose a room with a small occupancy limit...stuffed it with Hillary supporters and locked the majority of Bernie delegates and press out...for safety reasons. Brilliant.

Yeah I know. That's what I'm asking. So there are no laws over the conduct of how this part of it is run???

They can literally just do anything like lock out delegates and cheat within this part of the process and it's perfectly legal??
