Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This is not only the head of the Democratic National Committee, she is a serving United States Congresswoman. This would,
one would think, carry a level of dignity and integrity with it.
Apparently, in her case, that assumption is absurdly misplaced. She would appear to have no integrity and from past events, she has more than shown
she has no honor, in my view. Florida, please, help see that she has no JOB at your earliest convenience. House of Reps are up every 2 years. She can
be bounced out and shown the street that often. This? This is why.
DNC Chair Involved in Altercation Outside Polling Location
A group of sign-waving campaign ralliers comprised of both Democrat and Republican supporters outside an Aventura, Florida polling location
witnessed Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz get involved in a heated altercation with an Aventura policeman after she apparently took issue with
his request to not engage in campaign activities in the street which would hold up oncoming traffic.
There are laws. VERY clear, very serious and absolutely without exceptions. Campaigning, "electioneering" or disrupting the polling place in *ANY*
way is responded to quickly and severely in places which take it seriously. That's been everywhere I've been. 2 years ago I saw someone thrown out
for making what I'd take as a casual comment regarding the candidates just loudly enough to be overheard while in line. That's all it took.
Enter...what Debbie did:
She listened to the police officer’s respectful and reasonable request, but Wasserman Schultz continued to argue with the police officer,
according to several people who witnessed the incident.
Wasserman Schultz was greeting voters and waiving her campaign signs on a street that leading into the polling site and was obstructing traffic by
stopping cars before they could even enter the parking area.
As noted, this is in absolute, clear and certain violation of federal law regarding the free and fair operation of polling places during the general
election. As a Congresswoman, she's literally a member of the body who passes such laws. As the leader of the party, second only to Obama himself for
political position in that respect, she should set an example for others to follow...not be shamed by.
Unnerved by the simple request from a police officer, Wasserman Schultz made a “well placed” phone call to some unknown individual in a
position of authority. Five minutes later, the Aventura City Mayor came to the scene and was confronted by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and proceeded to
get an earful from her as well.
In this crazy election cycle we are being treated to the worst of both sides embodied by the worst of both side's political extremes. On one hand, we
are seeing Republicans who apparently got their biology education from pornographic magazines and videos. I have no idea where else some of their
stupid crap is coming from. On the other, we have this. While demanding, screeching and outright preaching the NEED for completely fair and
unrestricted access to vote and a friendly polling place, she proceeds to BECOME the very problem she has been crusading against.
Hypocrisy runs rampant both directions and deeper than the oceans. If it's too much to toss this example of corruption (that phone call to SUMMON the
mayor is corruption. Outright. On it's ugly face) in favor of a Republican of whatever flavor is is running against her...then please, next time she
comes up, bounce her right at the Primary and get someone in that does have honor and integrity. Our nation never improves while those who lead it are
so blatantly placing themselves above even the basic, common laws we all must follow or be called down for.
We're a nation of laws or we are not. If we are, then flaunting them cannot stand by either party, for any reason. The top levels of leadership are
not simply ones who should have no exception made, they are ones who should never NEED excuses made. Their conduct should be kept..by their own
standards...above such examples.
