When is a Delegate NOT a Delegate?

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

As reported previously on DCW, Debra Bartoshevich, a current Wisconsin pledged delegate to the Democratic Convention, may lose her opportunity to attend.

This because true-PUMA Baroshevich has decided to vote for John McCain in November. The Wisconsin Democratic Party petitioned the DNC Credentials Committee to strip her of her status, and the Committee turned the decision back to the state party. There is an incredibly high probability that she will be stripped of her credentials.

Best quote:

"If they decide to strip me of my status, they decide to do something un-American," Bartoshevich said. "It’s not democracy. It doesn’t stand for unity, which the party wants."
Um, it may just be me, but I don't understand how voting for a Republican encourages in any way Democratic Party unity.
