    Results of Massachusetts Democratic Convention (Update: Dem Delegates knock DeFranco off ballot, hand nomination to Warren)

    Results of Massachusetts Democratic Convention (Update: Dem Delegates knock DeFranco off ballot, hand nomination to Warren)

    Results are trickling in. I’m having trouble finding any webpages with official results as of this moment, but the Twittersphere has reported that Elizabeth Warren received 95.77% of the vote.

    If this is confirmed, Warren will have successfully secured the Democratic nomination and won’t be forced into a primary battle. Official results to come as soon as they are available.

    WAJ UPDATE: It’s official, the delegates have deprived voters of a choice for the first time in history, and handed the nomination to Warren.

    It will be interesting to see how DeFranco and her supporters react. Remember, this was a delegate vote not a popular vote with heavy pressure from the Gov. Deval Patrick, former Gov. Michael Dukakis, and other Democratic leaders to avoid a primary fight. They told the over 10,000 people who signed DeFranco’s nominating petition that they don’t get to vote in the primary election, and they deprived hundreds of thousands of other voters of a choice.

    Now it’s on the Dem leadership as Warren’s drip-drip falsehoods about her family history and her personal narrative continue to play out.

    Recall this e-mail I received in response to a prior post from Kevin Franck, Communications Director of the Mass Dem Party:

    I’m kinda surprised by this line in your post that just went up:

    As indicated in the video below, DeFranco would have to get 15% of the vote at the nominating convention on June 2 in order to make it to the ballot in September.

    Three weeks ago, that prospect would have seemed dim.

    Why would you think that here prospects of passing the 15% threshold were dim?

    “Cherokeeee!

    That’s all I ever heard!

    Cherokeeeeeeee!

    How I learned to hate the word!”

    All Scott Brown need do is send out a dozen or so supporters to sing those two lines from Cher’s song at Warren rallies. Again and again.

    And then start chanting: “HOY ya HUY ya, HOY ya HUY
    ya, HOY ya HUY ya, HOY ya HUY ya, HOY ya HUY ya, HOY ya HUY
    ya…..

    Heh

    Most liberals aren’t following the race closely yet. When they start looking at Elizabeth Warren and learn the history of how she got her job at Harvard Law, they will be grossed out by her sleaze. Trust me.

    Anyone who knows how university hiring works and who considers affirmative action to be a worthwhile policy is going to have a really hard time voting for Warren. The only reason the numbers aren’t worse is because people haven’t started paying attention yet.

    Why can’t the Democratic Party understand this?
