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.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump
Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.
Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.
On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.
“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto. “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not, he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”
Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil. No, no, it’s not true. I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”
“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019. Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.
The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago. According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.
Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.
However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
