In interviews with the Journal Sentinel over the weekend, two experienced political hands who have worked with the host committee described it as having a toxic culture rife with power struggles, backbiting and mismanagement.
They accused the top two officials, Gilbert and Alonso, of giving contracts to their friends in New Jersey, calling meetings and then failing to attend them and being more focused on accumulating power than promoting Milwaukee.
A New Jersey firm with strong ties to the New Jersey Democratic Party, for instance, developed the website for the host committee and manages its email platform. Both Gilbert and Alonso are top-ranking Democratic operatives in that state.
These assertions come at the same time that Alonso is being accused in his home state of New Jersey of shaking down campaign contributors for his personal consulting business.
“It’s one of the worst — if not the worst — I have worked on,” the first official said of the host committee.
The second official said they would become sick to their stomach when working with the host committee, the first time they experienced a toxic work environment, despite working on numerous campaigns. “You know it when you see it, when you feel it,” the second official said.
Everything but tech support.
Wait, wait!! We haven’t even gotten to the part where the Bernie Boyzzz burn down Milwaukee!!
Somehow, “New Jersey” is soooooooooo appropriate for this.
And the Sanders campaign has a field guy running around Iowa that is a real nut. Some people who know and work with him think he should be on some kind of watch list as a potential threat to President Trump. Wait until this crew arrives in Wisconsin.
By the way, dad29 – I am impressed that you are on the Other McCain blogroll.
When he started blogging, I encouraged him a bit.
And we want to yield real econimic power to this kind of dysfunction in health care, climate cult, etc?
God help Milwaukee at this convention.
They better have military style security for these crazy communists when establishment Dems steal nomination from communists.
Daddio sez:”…where the Bernie Boyzzz burn down Milwaukee!!”
Hope they start with the choo choo.
