RIGGED DEMOCRACY – NEARLY 10% OF DEMOCRATIC PARTY SUPERDELEGATES ARE LOBBYISTS

On July 25, these superdelegates will cast votes at the Democratic National Convention for whomever they want, regardless of primary and caucus outcomes. Democrats like to describe superdelegates as mostly elected officials and prominent party members, including President Obama and former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.

But this group, which consists of 21 governors, 40 senators and 193 representatives, only makes up about a third of the superdelegates. Many of the remaining 463 convention delegates are establishment insiders who get their status after years of donations and service to the party. Dozens of the 437 delegates in the DNC member category are registered federal and state lobbyists, according to an ABC News analysis.

I'd almost forgotten about Blacklisted News site. Unbelievable that these lobbyists have infiltrated the delegate scene, but then, these people never miss a trick to pervert the political system in America, do they? This should be strictly forbidden.

Agreed! But that's how they like it. And now with electronic voting machines they can sway the votes any way they please. Oh and yeah blacklisted news is my #2 site. Here being #1! Lol!?
