From Heidi Li's Potpourri
For some reason, the Democratic National Committee seems unwilling to act on its own rules.
Yesterday, at a strategy session I attended in Washington, DC, Clinton campaign director Terry McAuliffe alerted those present that two superdelegates from Florida had filed a formal complaint with Party's rules committee board, which is refusing to count them. Regardless of the status of the seating of the Florida delegation, it is a violation of DNC rules to refuse to seat the Florida's superdelegates (superdelegates are not chosen by primary). Guess what Howard Dean is doing? Refusing to refer the complaint to the rules committee. Terry urged everybody in the room and everybody we know to contact the DNC and specifically ask that the RCB address the complaint filed by the two Florida delegates. The telephone number for the D.N.C. is 202-863-8000. Call and simply say that you want to make sure that the Party's rules committee addresses the Florida superdelegates' recently filed complaint immediately.
UPDATE: Obama DNC Fundraising Deal
After a series of discussions, the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee have decided to file papers with the Federal Election Commission establishing a “joint fundraising agreement.” Under the law, such a committee can accept up to $28,500 from individuals, most of which would go to the DNC.
Now I wonder why the DNC is lagging in contributions? Coward Dean and the good old boyz just don't get it. I swear, if this reaches fruition, I am done with the Democratic Party.
