Members Demand Resignation of Democrat Party of New Mexico Chairman for Rigging Election for Clinton
Albuquerque, NM – A petition signed by Democrat State Central Committee members in New Mexico is calling for the removal of Debra Haaland as chairman of the Democrat Party of New Mexico, alleging she broke party rules by actively supporting Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders.
The allegations center on a presidential preference poll that was announced and scheduled to take place during DPNM’s pre-primary convention in early March. Once it was clear that the majority in attendance at the convention were supporters of Sanders, the presidential preference poll, which had been announced and scheduled, was cancelled to protect Hillary Clinton from the humiliation of losing the vote. This clear favoritism toward one candidate is a direct violation of DPNM rules.
“Much like Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC, Haaland’s and the DPNM establishment’s bias toward Clinton was clear throughout the primary,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Spokesman Tucker Keene. “Haaland broke party rules to shelter her favored candidate from the embarrassment of losing a straw poll. The Sanders supporters in New Mexico, of which there were many, deserved the entire primary system to be fair, and neither candidate should have been given preference that may have affected the vote.”
Haaland previously came under fire for her bias toward Clinton back in June, when she and several other members of the DPNM establishment publicly endorsed Clinton while Sanders was still in the race, also against party rules and against the desires of nearly half of Democrat primary voters.
