RIGGED? Perez Wins DNC Chair After CNN Called Him “Chairman” Days Ago
A few days ago, Chris Cuomo let a Freudian slip out during the live debate on CNN for the DNC chair. He repeatedly referred to then-candidate Tom Perez as “chairman”. Today, Perez just officially walked away with the title of Chairman of DNC, albeit after coming up one vote short in the first round of voting.
After winning, Perez started a motion to make Ellison his “deputy chair”.

This comes after a rule change to go back to paper ballots that set Democrats off, because it made the votes temporarily anonymous:
Bullshit rule-change where the voting tally for #DNCChair remains ANONYMOUS. Clinton cowards don't want to be held accountable!

Apparently, some sympathetic to Perez felt intimidated by the idea of an “open ballot”:

Here’s where CNN’s Cuomo kept calling Perez “Chairman”, just a few days ago:
Shortly before Perez was elected Chairman of the DNC, Democrats predictably voted to continue with collection of monies from corporate lobbyists.
