DNC Chair Tom Perez unilaterally changed the Democratic Debate Rules to pave the way for Billionaire Michael Bloomberg to participate. He removed the individual donor threshold, which ensured that candidates had adequate grassroots support. This was clearly done to pave the way for a nominee bought and paid for by the top one tenth of one percent. In point of fact, Bloomberg only has one donor - himself!

 

Before Michael Bloomberg entered the race, he made a large-dollar donation to none other than the Democratic National Committee. This reeks of pay-to-play and undermines the democratic process. Candidates of color like Julian Castro, Cory Booker, and Tulsi Gabbard all did not qualify for the debates because they failed to meet either the polling or the individual donor thresholds, but the rules were not changed for them. Why the rules should be changed for a billionaire is beyond comprehension.

 

Sign this petition to force Tom Perez to resign, and to keep the Democratic in Democratic National Committee.
