Floridian Democrats Counted As One-Half Persons by DNC

Remember the old canard of how slaves were only counted as 3/5 of a person back in colonial America?
It was, of course, a provision for apportionment of representatives in Congress. It was the anti- slavery forces that insisted on the 3/5 number to keep the number of representatives from slave holding states lower.

Now, we may have its modern equivalent: Democrats want to count Florida voters as ½ when it comes to seating delegates!

Two sources, including a high-ranking official with the Florida delegation, have confirmed that the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee (RBC) reached an agreement last night and will seat the state’s entire delegation but give each delegate half a vote.


Remind me again: Which party calls itself ”Democratic”? Heh.
