There’s trouble brewing inside the Democrat Party.
Two leaders of Milwaukee’s host committee for the 2020 Democratic National Convention were fired on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 after employees expressed their concerns about the group’s “work environment.”
The Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee revealed that Liz Gilbert, who was the president of the host committee, and Adam Alonso, the group’s chief of staff, were fired after staffers expressed complaints about their stewardship.
“Every employee has a right to feel respected in their workplace. Based on the information we have learned to date, we believe the work environment did not meet the ideals and expectations of the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee Board of Directors,” the host committee declared in a statement.
“Accordingly, Liz Gilbert and Adam Alonso are no longer employed by the organization, effective immediately.”
The move was carried out a day after the organization announced it hired the services of an attorney to look into the claims about the work environment.
Two individuals who have worked alongside the host committee, who maintained their anonymity, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the group had a toxic work environment filled with power struggles and mismanagement. They claimed that Gilbert and Alonso handed out contracts to New Jersey operatives, failed to attend meetings, and focused on building their power within the group.
Gilbert and Alonso were Democratic operatives in New Jersey.
“It’s one of the worst — if not the worst — I have worked on,” the first official said, while describing his experience with the host committee.
“The spirit of what it could be for the city might be lost,” the second official chimed in.
The host committee asserted that it was first made aware of the allegations last weekend and that no concerns of “bullying and intimidation within the work environment” were even brought up before last weekend. The group added that it will continue conducting its third party investigation and take additional steps to “ensure the Host Committee’s office culture reflects respect and dignity for each and every employee.”
“The work of the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee is critically important–but that work cannot be accomplished unless members of the staff can work collaboratively. The Board is committed to an inclusive and supportive environment at the Host Committee, and will work to ensure that all employees live up to these ideals,” the committee stated.
Wisconsin political operative Teresa Vilmain will oversee the day-to-day operations in the interim.
The Democrat Party is not in good shape.
Like in 2016, Democrat leadership is trying to run as many obstacles as possible to prevent the radical leftist candidate Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination.
Democrat brass does not care about the popular will of its constituents and would rather subvert basic democratic concepts by pushing technocratic elites who are completely out of touch with American people.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
