Hillary Clinton’s
Department has been revealed to be indefensibly unethical. From the Clinton
to the highly questionable defenses Clinton
during her FBI investigation
extent to which similar dirty politics were used to help her win the
Democratic primaries merits further attention. After the releases
 by Wikileaks
 and Guccifer 2.0
the role in which Nevada—a crucial early voting state—played in stopping Bernie
against Clinton
brought into light. The undemocratic nature by which Clinton
<http://observer.com/2016/08/how-much-corruption-can-clinton-laugh-off/> won
the Democratic primaries sets a dangerous precedent.

On September 15, former Congressional candidate
<https://ballotpedia.org/Dan_Rolle> in Nevada’s fourth district, Dan Rolle
took to Twitter <https://twitter.com/danrolle/status/776419353822498816> to
explain how, starting in 2012, the Nevada Democratic Party began changing
the state’s voter registration system as a means to rig
caucuses for Clinton
Most state Democratic parties—including Nevada—moved to NGPVAN
which Rolle says facilitated the monopolization of voter data in favor of

“So now, if you are @HillaryClinton <https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton> and
you have @NGPVAN <https://twitter.com/NGPVAN>, you know everything about
every democrat. Including who WON’T vote for you,” Rolle tweeted. “So how
do you fix that? Simple. Vote Builder. A piece of software that can change
the state voter file. And you do that with: @NGPVAN

Rolle attended a fundraising call before the Nevada caucuses, between
Manager Robby Mook
Nevada Democratic Party
who were worried she would lose the state, as 70 percent of newly
registered voters were expected to support Sanders
According to Rolle, there was a meeting with donors in New York leading up
to the Nevada caucus, where donors threatened to pull out.

“I met with Nevada Democratic Party executive board members who told me
they were aware of caucus members being bussed in from California
Rolle told the Observer, noting there were significant discrepancies with
the Nevada Democratic Party’s voter file. “When I pressed on the accuracy
in the voter file, I was told ‘it’s garbage’ by an executive board member.”

Over the course of Rolle’s campaign for Congress in Nevada this year, his
team found anywhere between five to 10 percent discrepancies and higher in
the voter file. “You reach a point, statistically, where if you say, ‘Hey,
we are running for congress and 20 percent of this voter file is garbage.’
On the voter file <https://twitter.com/xavvypls/status/776476136406675456>,
names were incorrect, phone numbers didn’t work. So you call someone on the
file and they say, ‘That’s not me’ or ‘I moved three years ago.’ One or two
of those you expect—but 15 in 100 calls? That’s election swinging right
there.” Clinton
 defeated Sanders
the Nevada caucuses 52.6 percent to 47.3 percent, a margin lower than the
accuracy of the voter file.

The process for recording results at the Nevada caucus was unreliable and
easily subject to manipulation. The Young Turks’ host Jimmy Dore posted a
video <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bv-8xtgpjV8&feature=youtu.be> on
Youtube shortly after the Nevada caucuses, pointing out an inept chairman
of a caucus site in Las Vegas. Dore narrated as the chairman forgot to
nominate delegates to go to the state convention after tallying the vote,
and let people caucus who weren’t registered. A separate video
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ug9hHe_iZg&feature=youtu.be> posted on
Youtube revealed unregistered Clinton
entering a caucus site in Nevada.

“The process of recording results from the Nevada Caucus just involved a
person (usually sent out there by the Nevada Democratic Party) entering the
results into a website on a phone. No cross-referencing. No validation. You
have people entering, voting, and leaving before business concludes, with
no verification.”

Rolle confronted the Nevada Democratic Party
the disorganization and lack of communication at several Nevada caucus
sites. “I was told, ‘We are working on it, we are learning.’ Not ‘there
isn’t fraud.’ ” Rolle noted that the Nevada caucuses could have easily
swung one or two delegates at several different sites, swaying the state in
Hillary Clinton’s favor.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid played a major role in tipping the Nevada
caucuses in favor of Hillary Clinton
Reid, who maintained neutrality until shortly after the caucuses—at which
point he endorsed
—called <http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2016/02/18/union/> in
favors to casino owners, asking for workers to be sent to caucus sites in
Las Vegas. “If Harry Reid is going to push the needle with union workers
going to the polls (on paid time), Nevada is the state to do it,” Rolle
added. The Culinary Workers Union, for example, did not intend to
participate in the Nevada caucuses—until a call
<http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2016/02/18/union/> from Reid
to the union’s leader changed their mind.

Following the caucuses, 64 of Sanders delegates were rejected at the Nevada
State Democratic Party Convention by a board chosen by Clinton
The delegates would have given Sanders an edge. Roberta Lange, the state
party’s chair, denied a recount of delegates and ended the convention at
her own discretion, therefore breaking the party’s own rules to ensure
more delegates from Nevada than Sanders.

While Sanders supporters were understandably outraged, biased
mainstream media coverage portrayed them as violent. Some went so far as to
falsely claim Sanders supporters threw chairs in protest—a narrative
the DNC
intentionally pushed <https://wikileaks.org/dnc-emails/emailid/9423> to
discredit the Sanders campaign. The allegations were eventually debunked,
yet *The New York Times
<https://www.rt.com/usa/343379-nonsense-sanders-nevada-democratic/>, *among
other publications
failed to publish retractions or make edits to correct the story.

What happened at the Nevada State Convention is essentially a microcosm of
the entire Democratic primaries. The Democratic Party leadership breaks,
bends and circumvent the rules to help Hillary Clinton
<http://observer.com/2016/03/hillary-has-an-nsa-problem/>—and when Sanders
supporters protest, mainstream media outlets

The victory Nevada Democrat officials were able to squeeze out for Clinton
enabled the media to continue portraying Bernie Sanders as the
“unrealistic” underdog in a Democratic primary that belonged to Clinton
single vote was cast.
