DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE WORKED TO DEFEAT
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) secretly
placed political operatives in the city of New
Orleans to work against the reelection efforts
of incumbent Democrat Mayor Ray Nagin, the
DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
DNC Chairman Howard Dean made the decision
himself to back mayoral candidate and sitting
Lieutenant Governor Mitch Landrieu (D-LA),
Dean came to the decision to back the white
challenger, over the African-American
incumbent Nagin, despite concerns amongst
senior black officials in the Party that
the DNC should stay neutral.
The DNC teams actively worked to defeat
Nagin under the auspice of the committee's
voting rights program.
So, the party machine that is going to retake the House and Senate in '06, and the White House in '08, couldn't beat Ray Nagin? The guy who played the blame game while his fleet of school buses drown in a parking lot, and they couldn't beat him? The most incompetent mayor in the country (and maybe the world), and they couldn't beat him? Funny, huh?
With a track record like this, I would say that the only thing standing in the way of a Republican victory in November is the Republicans themselves. Not much of a morale booster, is it?
