**********Spring break wound down with an El Paso County democratic caucus yesterday. Perhaps you remember the March 4 Texas presidential primary? Erroneously called the Texas two-step because Texans got to vote twice, once during the day at the polls and again that night at precinct caucuses. Yesterday, local delegates from those earlier caucuses, in a huge March Madness pep rally like atmosphere, gathered again to decide the outcome of the March caucuses with another vote (the third for those still counting) to determine who they will send to Austin to vote yet again (a fourth time)!
Mrs. Dada was a delegate to the chaos, er, convention. Well, due to some problems with her precinct's credentials, she wasn't actually legitimized as a delegate until late in the day.
One of the anomalies Mrs. Dada noted in her precinct's turnout was Obama delegates who didn't show up had been suspiciously replaced with alternate delegates sporting Billary buttons!
Apparently the Clinton's were better organized to overturn the March 4th caucus results than the Obamaites.
Exclusive Dada video smuggled out of El Paso County's March 29th democratic caucus!
I managed to get a taped portion of the day long, into-the-evening, process smuggled out and am proud to be the first to post it here, a Dada exclusive! (NOTE: Any resemblance to any other historical event is strictly coincidental, yet testament to the theory "history repeats itself," I suppose.)
**********Final result of yesterday's chaos, or grass roots democracy: Obama ended up with 7 of the 127 delegates up for grabs. There were challenges to the delegate process as conducted by El Paso County's democratic Chairman that some fear place the county's entire delegate representation at risk at the state convention later in Austin.
"Because of what he did, El Paso may not get any delegates at the state convention," state Rep. Norma Chávez, D-El Paso (and Obama supporter) said.
