"Screwed the pooch" is a military term used to describe a catastrophic error. Normally, I’m focused on promoting Democrats, but when a member of the leadership does something that is blatantly against the interest of the American people, as well as the Democratic Party, integrity demands that I speak-up.

Petiton to DNC here - this one was emailed by RL Miller

I'm not aware of any petition directly to Perez, but would sign it, along with any other petition to the DNC. I'm familiar with the concept of "spoiling the Egyptians" which can be quite amusing, and I certainly do sympathize from individual workers in the industry (but I don't think they were blocked anyway), but the optics of this are as bad as they can be. And the money is not worth it.

The DNC should be using the Sanders,Cortez limited donation platform of
never being beholden to any corporation or industry
but I see the temptation to get funding is hard to resist

Shame on Perez! He is one of the reasons the Democrats have been getting their (ahem!) asses kicked.

Signed the petition (thanks, Joanne) with the following comment: Taking money from the fossil fuel industry is like taking it from the tobacco industry, as your mother lies dying of lung cancer!!!!!
THIS is how the DNC has come to be seen as an enemy the people.  Pelosi, the twit from Florida, Schultz?, who also helped screw Bernie out of the nomination, all of these are anathema to the regular person.

Really, Perez??? Many Dems don’t like the past corporate bent to the party. Perez wants to go backwards? What an idiot! This will split the party instead of bringing it together. Take a leaf out of Bernie’s and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s playbook and don’t look backwards!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

🤦 🤦 or if you don’t get my drift: 🤦‍♀️

No party should do a thing like this three months before the most important midterms in its history. Of course the Democratic party should support individuals who work in the fossil-fuel industry; the Democratic party should support all workers. Their donations are not stamped with a fossil-fuel emblem. And of course the Democratic party should support the unions of individuals who work in the fossil-fuel industry; those unions are there for the workers, not the industry; the Democratic party should all unions for workers. But the DNC should NEVER go back on banning fossil-fuel companies and PACs.

The old elite is still there and they’re just as addicted to big money as their Republican colleagues. And they couldn’t have picked a worse time to come out of the shadows again. I hope I’m wrong, but I think Perez is the tip of the iceberg.

Not his first slip up;
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has said repeatedly that the national party shouldn’t, and won’t, endorse in primaries. But on Thursday, he stood on a Long Island stage and endorsed Andrew Cuomo, the New York governor who is facing a challenge from actress Cynthia Nixon. —
Nepotism, dark money, what's next?
Signed related petition, thanks Tom, Joanne!
