Democratic Party drops donor threshold for debate, opens door to Bloomberg

The Democratic National Committee announced Friday that there will be no donor threshold for its upcoming Nevada debate on Feb. 19. This could enable Mayor Michael Bloomberg to qualify for his first debate. Previous debates had minimum numbers donors as thresholds. Since Bloomberg is not taking donations he didn’t qualify. Anyone who wins a delegate in Iowa or is above 10% in polls will be in.

Who cares about Bloomberg. Does Tulsi qualify? (Assuming she decides to participate that is.)

Wow, the DNC just openly quit Biden as their front runner. How rigged too. This legitimizes the arguments against them this entire race where they were being charged with abusing their position and making up rules as you went. If you vote for Bloomberg, you are voting to remain in this terribly corrupt cycle.

... and screw over Bernie. I hope they realize that the people pissed off enough to vote for the little commie are the ones who will now tear apart their party for this idiocy. I mean I understand the feeling Bernie is horrid. It's just that they are not propping up an alternative other than corporate stooges.
