By Breitbart. Presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) criticized the Iowa Democratic Party Tuesday for botching its first-in-the-nation caucus, accusing the Democrat National Committee (DNC) of “rigging” its primary contest in favor of billionaire candidates like former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
“Thousands of people turned out to cast the first votes of this presidential primary in the Iowa Caucuses last night,” Gabbard said in a statement. “Unfortunately, the voices of the people of Iowa have yet to be heard as the vote count continues, leaving voters frustrated and without the transparency and integrity in this process that they expect and deserve.”

She continued: “It’s clear that the corporate media, the military-industrial complex, and the party establishment are threatened by [my] message, because it challenges their grip on power. They will do everything to silence us, while also rigging the primary process for billionaire candidates who think they can bypass the kind of grassroots campaigning that is the fuel of our movement.” (Read more from “Tulsi Gabbard: DNC ‘Rigging’ Primary” HERE)
Two DNC Host Committee Leaders Fired
By ABC News. Two Democratic National Convention host committee leaders have been fired, according to the host committee board.
“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. Accordingly, Liz Gilbert and Adam Alonso are no longer employed by the organization, effective immediately,” the host committee board said in a statement Tuesday night.
Accusations spelled out in a letter, which WISN 12 News obtained, claimed the two top leaders of the host committee created an office culture that was toxic, that eroded trust and damaged morale.
“Whenever there are issues like this, I take them very seriously,” Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said.
Barrett praised the Milwaukee Host Committee’s board for its action addressing claims of a toxic work culture leveled against the committee’s president and its chief of staff. (Read more from “Two DNC Host Committee Leaders Fired” HERE)
