Tom Perez is the chair of the DNC. And Tom Perez pushed for Democratic Party Primary elections to commence in Florida, Illinois and Arizona.
Ohio postponed theirs on health and safety grounds in the midst of the US being in partial lock-down.
Look. I’ve got nothing much to say that most people with half a brain and a quarter ounce of humanity aren’t already thinking.
I wouldn’t normally post such a long video presentation, but Nomiki Konst sat on the Democratic Unity Commission and so is able to offer some valuable insight as to the processes and reality behind the Democratic Party’s reckless disregard for human health and welfare. She hits her stride at about three minutes in.
That neither Sanders nor Biden, regardless of any possible optics, saw fit to display robust leadership on this issue is unlikely to be (shouldn’t be) a forgivable lapse of judgement in my opinion.
The interview of Tom Perez that Nomiki Konst refers to isn’t up on youtube or available through MSNBCs site at the moment. So this kinda annoying link is all I can provide. Perez is pretty good at washing his hands and keenly deflects to the “bigger picture” beyond people congregating to vote in the middle of a pandemic.
update: As per usual these days, it’s independent media/commentators providing useful context and commentary…
