As a Democrat or more specifically, a Bernie Sanders supporter, it must be extremely frustrating to deal with the process of “superdelegates” – where Party insiders get to circumvent the will of voters.
A superdelegate gets to choose whomever they so desire, regardless of the way people vote. As it stands after last night’s contests, Hillary Clinton has amassed nearly 95% of those superdelegates.
Where once there may have been a tight race, Clinton is pulling away from Sanders easily because of a wholly un-Democratic process.
Now add this bit of news to the fray: One prominent New York superdelegate just so happens to be a convicted felon.
In November, former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was found guilty on seven counts involving corruption schemes that netted him $4 million in legal fees.
Silver is still a member in good standing with the Democratic National Committee, and as such, remains entitled to serve as a superdelegate.
Once one of the most powerful Democrats in the state, former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has long been a member of the Democratic National Committee. Despite his conviction on federal corruption charges, he’s still a DNC member and is entitled to his superdelegate slot.
The Point has learned that Silver has not resigned from the prestigious DNC post, so the party, which doesn’t have an official process for removing members who are felons, is trying to figure out how to oust him.
