The 2016 presidential election has already gone down in history as one of the most controversial elections ever. With a special prosecutor investigating the winning campaign for its dealings with Russia, many had stopped thinking about the losing campaign of Hillary Clinton. Donna Brazile, the former DNC interim chairwoman during the closing days of the election, has thrown a giant spotlight on the Clinton campaign, in an excerpt from Brazile’s new book, featured in Politico Magazine. While she does not accuse the campaign of doing anything illegal, she does accuse them of very unethical behavior. In the article, she reveals that the Obama 2012 campaign and poor mismanagement by her predecessor, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had left the DNC millions in debt. The Clinton campaign took over 80 percent of the debt for complete control of the DNC operation. Brazile claims the deal was signed in August of 2015, long before a single primary vote was cast. Brazile’s article raises the question: Was the Democratic primary rigged for Secretary Hillary Clinton?
Those who feel the primary was rigged argue that the only way Secretary Clinton could have beaten Senator Sanders out of the nomination was if the system was rigged. They feel that Senator Sanders had thoroughly beaten her in the debates. Plus, he had much more passionate supporters than she did. Also, there had been a feeling going back to the primary, among Senator Sanders’ supporters, that the establishment was continually stacking the deck against Senator Sanders. Finally, there were the leaked emails that suggested the DNC was actively working against Senator Sanders during the campaign.
views are immediately discarded because minorities feel that white people can’t possibly understand the issue since they are not a minority.
