Clinton Tactics Reach New Low

An Obama pledged delegate from Texas A&M wrote:
This a repost, I removed the number for callback.

A Hillary Clinton supporter just called me and asked me "Can we count on you to support Hillary Clinton"? I'm listed as a PLEDGED Obama delegate.

I said "no", then they proceeded to ask what my concerns were. I told them nothing can change my vote.

This is outrageous.

It turns out the # is to a call center that is always busy.

  1. goodness gracious.

    this is getting way too underhanded. !!

    hillary clinton cannot possibly, with a clear conscience, go after delegates that the people decided to entrust to their decision to vote Obama!!

    This is very unsettling. I thought my vote, small and simple as it is, is MY FUCKIN vote!!!! And i wanted it to count for who i voted for! The idea that someone can take my vote and overturn it is preposterous. I'm ready to riot if Clinton pulls this "I am the queen of you" shit.

  2. I heard from people in the Obama campaign that it happened the other way around too - -Texas got the version of the list that they gave to the campaigns wrong and there were some people listed as being delegates for the wrong candidate. So it may have been a mistake to call you in the first place. But if they then tried to get you to switch that was low, and pretty much to be expected, the Clinton campaign have said they could go after pledged delegates.
