It has come to my attention that a Democratic County Chairperson called and asked an Obama delegate to switch to at large so they could move an Alternate delegate up. Depending on the make up of the alternate pool in any county or precinct, there is no guarantee that the alternate moved up to take a delegate’s place would have the same presidential preference. This is called playing a numbers game and is deplorable.
The only time an alternate being moved up is guaranteed to be the same presidential preference is an at-large delegate who has to be replaced. I am calling on all Obama Delegates and Alternates to ignore the latest ruse being played by the Clinton campaign in Texas. You were elected as a delegate to represent the people in your precinct and should be proud to do so. I am sure you can hold fund raisers in your area to help defray cost to the convention.
There is already plans being made to help with housing and the like for delegates from out of town here in Austin and I will keep you informed as soon as I know more.
I know this is a tacky picture but a friend sent it to me and I cannot stop laughing.
