ANALYSIS/OPINION:

As a mostly life-long independent and Democratic voter, I proudly cast my Massachusetts primary vote for anti-establishment change by choosing Bernie Sanders. Little did I know that the Democratic Party, as led by Clinton campaign surrogates, had other plans from Day One — and they involved direct election outcome interference (“DNC — but not Wasserman Schultz — offers ‘sincere apology’ to Sanders over leaked emails,” Web, July 25).

Mere months into this primary process, when super delegate after super delegate preemptively declared for Hillary Clinton, it was obvious to me that the DNC fix was in. My vote had been invalidated before it had even been cast.

Now, thanks to a whistleblowing hacker action, thousands of DNC emails have been provided to the public that fully underscore the truth of a rigged 2016 Democratic primary election cycle. As a taxpayer, citizen and veteran, I am utterly appalled and my faith in the Democratic Party is shattered. I am angrier than anything that my cast vote was voided by this corruption. Further, the fact that DNC Chief Financial Officer Marshall thinks exercising divisive religious bigotry (attacking Mr. Sanders’ Jewish faith) is OK is yet another unforgivable low.

The million-dollar question now is whether the Federal Election Commission will immediately open an investigation, seizing all DNC computers in order to investigate the depth of this election tampering. Sadly, the current U.S. president is a Democrat so we all know that nothing will be done by the FEC, FBI or Justice Department.

At this point, I think I am done voting unless the FEC and Congress use the remaining months before November to enact major election-processes reform.
