Dem Bosses Want A Mail-in Re-Do For FL

From the DNC’s Associated Press:

Fla. mail-in primary plan gains traction

By JOHN DUNBAR Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON—A consensus began to emerge Sunday that the best way to give Florida’s Democrats a voice in electing a candidate for president lies with the U.S. Postal Service…

DNC Chairman Howard Dean said a mail-in primary is “actually a very good process.”

“Every voter gets a ballot in the mail,” the former Vermont governor said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “It’s comprehensive, you get to vote if you’re in Iraq or in a nursing home. It’s not a bad way to do this.” …

Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., appeared to be amenable to a mail-in solution for his state, though with less enthusiasm.

Speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” Levin said doing the election again would be against state law. “That can’t be changed, and that can’t be paid for,” he said. Levin also said caucuses would be difficult, with 500 potential sites.

“The one possibility would be some kind of a mail-in caucus,” he said. “But there’s some real problems with that, too. Not just cost, but the security issue. How do you make sure that hundreds of thousands, perhaps a million or more ballots can be properly counted and that duplicate ballots can be avoided?” …

Mr. Levin is pleased to be amusing.

It’s clear that the Democrat bosses now think that Mrs. Clinton may well make their best candidate after all.

So they are pushing for the approach that will give them the best opportunity to stuff the ballot boxes and throw the nomination to Hillary. (Free of any tint of racism.)

But oh the irony of having the Democrat nomination being stolen in Florida.
