Shenanigans in CA Democratic Party Assembly Delegate Elections



In January I covered the bi-annual CDP Assembly District Delegate elections in AD 51. I interviewed candidates and voters and talked with folks about the problems with elected officials putting together slates. This election had a surprising result. Watch to the end to see what happened.

Can I say, the only way to beat organized money is to organize money our selves. If we all gave 1% of our earnings to help candidates we believe in we could counter money from few persons. We should start a movement called the voluntarily democracy tax-movement or something and start supporting the candidates we want. If everybody did that, the bottom 90%, we could buy our democracy back and institute real change. It might be cynical, but I don't see any other option.

Ok, I honestly tried to understand what this whole thing is about and I have suffered through 17 min of this bizarre footage and am still not having a clue of what kind of election this is and what these "slates" are about and what the hell is going on all together. You really need to learn how to do reporting. Explain the issue in the beginning, take a few interviews that elaborate on your point and wrap it up with some important message. I also suggest that you go on Jimmy Dore with this. After all, he is in… Read more »

Stop thinking these politicians are stupid. If they didn't know what the people wanted, what the people needed, or what the right thing to do was…… They wouldn't know what lies to tell you to trick you and get your vote.

Just goes to show how right I was to label the democrats as criminals. Republicans are openly and blatantly stealing elections. But so are the establishment Democrats. And it is not a new thing. As they have been doing this for decades. How else would self serving criminals keep holding onto offices, or getting into office. Great work here Lauren.

I participated in the San Bernardino Assembly elections and boy was I shocked. Compelled by self-described Progressives, I went to vote only to find mostly corporate Dems, even those marketing themselves as "Progressives," or people running as Progressives who could not describe one policy position beyond "values." I connected with a supposed "Progressive" who I actually had voted for in 2018 to unseat idiot Paul Cook, only to find she was running around badmouthing the "Progressives" as "Phony Democrats." OMG! What a bad taste that whole debacle left in my mouth!! Once there, I spent an hour carefully filling out… Read more »

The Democratic Party is simply impossible to reform.

So senior centers are now considered "astroturf collection opportunity centers"? Free lunch out sounds grand compared to tapioca and weak coffee!

This drove me crazy when I went to the one in Culver City – rank and file Dems running on a slate with the word "progressive" tacked onto it. The other thing that was a total sham was registering day of – they gave me the registration form and a ballot printed on a different color paper (that was later put in a separate ballot box) with no indentifying info on it. So it was basically like a provisional ballot and once they verify my Democratic registration how are they going to tie it to my ballot? It's in with… Read more »

You're really asking people to stick around for 20 minutes without having any real idea of what your video is about? Not the best approach.

Please in future state the situation, the facts, your conclusion, then show your evidence.
