Rep. Gabbard: DNC Rigged the Presidential Primary, Damaged the Party

By    |   Friday, 03 November 2017 12:52 PM

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, released a video Friday calling for a complete overhaul of the Democratic Party following revelations about the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

"The DNC secretly chose their nominee over a year before the primary elections even occurred. This shines a light on how deeply broken our campaign finance laws are, and how they've weakened individual candidates while strengthening and empowering political parties and special interested," says Gabbard, who resigned from her position as DNC vice chair to support Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and has openly criticized the committee for how it operated during the election.

"These laws allowed the Clinton campaign to bypass individual campaign contribution limits by funneling millions of dollars through the DNC and state parties — taking control of the DNC in the process," she added.

The congresswoman said Thursday, "I was not surprised to read about what she wrote. I was surprised to see that it had been written about," referring to interim DNC chair Donna Brazile's new book, in which she reveals the extent of the control that the Clinton campaign held over the party.

"I wasn't privy to many of the detailed things that she talked about while I was serving there as vice chair," she continued, according to the Washington Examiner. 

"It was something that, you know, had been spoken about in kind of vague terms that, 'Hey this is a potential course of action that may be taken.' But to have it laid out in such stark, blunt terms — again, I was not surprised that that happened, but I was a little bit surprised that it was put out there as it was today."

In the video, Gabbard calls for the elimination of "superdelegates," and the implementation of same-day voter registration.

"No more games, no more retaliation, no more picking of winners or losers — we must act now to take back our party."
