On Tuesday night the Miami-Dade Democratic Executive Committee tried to convene for the umpteenth time to pass a resolution -- a resolution that would call for the resignation of State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle.
Katherine Fernandez Rundle, the woman who refused to charge Miami-Dade corrections officers with the scalding-death of Darren Rainey.
Katherine Fernandez Rundle, who seems to go out of her way to protect the bad apples that exist in law enforcement.
Katherine Fernandez Rundle, who needs to resign, or be voted out.
To go along with the umpteenth time a resolution has been called to condemn Fernandez Rundle, a quorum of DEC members could not be reached for the umpteenth time.
All of those members who Stephanie Grutman (remember her email?), Bret Berlin, and Juan Cuba helped stack the deck to ensure Stephen Bittel got elected party chairman, don't seem too interested in the DEC anymore.
Where is Stephanie Grutman? She's an appointed at-large chair now, thanks to Bittel.
Where is Bret Berlin? He's a 2nd vice chair of the Florida Democratic Party, thanks to Bittel.
For that matter, where is Stephen Bittel?
Is it no longer important that those members they rounded up attend?
Miami-Dade, depending on the week, has more Democrats than any other county, and the DEC can't get a quorum together to actually conduct business?
Clearly that December election of Bittel was a farce. The people who voted for him had no interest in actually participating in that DEC ever again.
Remind me why a vote of no confidence in Juan Cuba hasn't occurred?
Oh yeah, no FREAKING quorum. Why hasn't the membership been purged? Perhaps Cuba doesn't WANT a quorum.
Darren Rainey received no justice from Fernandez Rundle.
Darren Rainey is receiving no support from "the big tent" party.
You want to know who rarely gets support from "the big tent" party?
The black community.
Tom Perez held a conference call with the DNC Black Caucus yesterday, where concerns were aired about the Democratic Party and its lack of appreciation for the black community.
Perez wholeheartedly agreed that the Democratic Party has taken the black community for granted, and wanted input on how to change things.
One of the DNC Black Caucus members pointed out that no matter how much the black community votes, things don't change for the person on the ground.
This black man was murdered, and Democrats can't come together to pass a resolution that basically just shows support?
I'm sure Democrats will want black people to come out and vote, though.
The Miami Herald showed photos of Rainey's body.
Hot showers burn.
