In a massive embarrassment to Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, a delegate to the Democrat National Convention announced on the air that he would not be voting for Hillary come the fall because of her dishonesty.
Speaking with ABC reporter Jonathan Karl in Philadelphia, where the convention was being held, he dropped the bombshell: “As far as president, I will not be voting for Hillary Clinton.”
As you can imagine, Karl was shocked.
“You are a delegate to the Democratic National Convention and you are not going to be voting for Hillary Clinton. Why?” he asked.
And as one might expect, the delegate mentioned her gross mishandling of her private email server scandal as evidence of her dishonesty and impetus for voting against her.
“Well, it’s really just as simple as I feel as if she hasn’t been honest with us, and the fact of the matter is, she said for over a year there (was) no classified information sent or received on her private email server, and the FBI said that’s not true,” he said.
“She wouldn’t even call it an investigation,” he added. “She called it a security review. If she’s not even going to be honest about the nature of that investigation, what else can we expect? I have no love for (GOP nominee Donald) Trump, but I also have no love for Hillary.”
It’s nice to see some delegates with a sound head still on their shoulders, even at the Democrat convention.
Should he be able to withstand the pressure to vote for Hillary Clinton, and if GOP nominee Donald Trump isn’t an option, he will almost certainly fall to one of the two significant party candidates — Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein.
Or, he might just stay home. We’re OK with any of those options.
