Bernie Sanders’ loyal supporters our outraged and are threatening to abandon the Democratic Party after a federal judge in Florida dismissed the class-action lawsuit alleging that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) illegally favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders.
The conspiracy to push Clinton in place while obstructing Sanders, was revealed in documents released after a 2016 hack into a DNC server.
The mainstream media largely appeared to ignore the hacked DNC emails although they exposed that Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC were conspiring to shut Bernie Sanders out.
The class-action suit was filed against both the DNC and its former chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida on June 28, 2016. The suit on behalf of other Sanders’ supporters across 45 states who believed that Schultz had “rigged” the primaries and exhibited “intentional, willful, wanton, and malicious” conduct in violation of Article 5, Section 4 of the DNC Charter.
However, on Friday, Judge William Zloch dismissed what Sanders’ supporters referred to as the “DNC Fraud Lawsuit” in a 28-page decision where he ruled that the plaintiffs did not present a case that is “cognizable,” or clearly within the jurisdiction of the court.
“For Sanders supporters, the lawsuit provides an opportunity for vindication for being cheated and attacked by the Democratic establishment,” Michael Sainato, a reporter for the Observer, wrote back on May 8. “Now, the DNC is on record arguing that its voters have no reason to trust it to maintain free and fair elections.”
After Zloch dismissed the suit, Sanders supporters and progressives flocked to the DNC Fraud Lawsuit’s Facebook page to voice their grievances and express their frustrations with the Democratic Party. While some pledged to never donate money to the DNC ever again, others promised to bail on the party and support other candidates.
Facebook user Vicki L Nulik Morrison argued Friday on the Facebook page that the suit “was worth it just to hear the DNC say in court that they didn’t have to play fair or even follow their own guidelines.”
“They admitted they are crooks and they will NEVER see another dime of my money,” Nulick Morrison continued. “I understand they are having a hard time raising money! That suits me just fine!! I hope they go broke.”
“This is basically the reason I Dem-exited. The party itself can do what it wants. The primaries are a sham, and the courts just upheld the sham. Sad day for voters, but they told us clearly they (the DNC) and only they can decide for us who will be the candidate for president,” Facebook user Mary Acosta Granger wrote.
“If DNC wants to dictate the leadership’s pick for candidate, then the taxpayers should not have to pay for the primary or caucuses,” user Carol Preston wrote.
“Not voting dem ever again even IF Bernie or another progressive ran as a dem,” user Jennifer Perez wrote.
“Wow! I guess the DNC does not want us to have a choice after all. Just pay back the money and give us a public apology. Then maybe I will consider voting Dem again. At least in one way the [Republican National Committee] was honest,” user Craig Hahn wrote.
“I’m sad for our democracy. They tricked and bamboozled folks that thought the [DNC] was giving us a clear choice between two candidates, but they were making their backroom deals, and knew exactly who they were going to run as their presidential candidate,” user Maya Grafmuller wrote. “Either I didn’t read the small print, or they blatantly deprived me of an actual choice of candidate! I want my money back.”
