Hey folks! Blogging to you live from the JSND/PUMA den. We just dispatched a throng of PUMAs to Union Station to raise hell. Riverdaughter is in tow and Rebecca Traister from Salon.com will be conducting interviews. Harriet Christian stopped by to say hello and encourage us. Will Bower rolled in. The media has been here doing interviews. Needless to say we are getting our message out in terms that even Nancy Pelosi will be able to understand...okay maybe not...but anyone not high kool-aid anyway.
I spoke to a Clinton delegate from Spokane, Cindy Schwartz. As you know, rumors are flying fast and furious about what is happening with the roll call. There is pressure being placed on HRC delegates to vote for BO on the first ballot. She feels very strongly that she was elected to vote for Hillary, and she intends to do so. She is not alone. Ballots will be distributed at the hotel, but there hasn't been clear instructions yet as to where and when voting will take place. There will be a paper trail...but who will be counting the votes?
Cindy also made it clear that HRC has NOT released her delegates!
DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT IS BEING REPORTED IN THE MEDIA!!! They do not have any idea what's happening, and to be honest, neither do we. This is a dangerous time for our democracy.
Nothing is particularly clear. Democracy is on life support.
