With temps in Philadelphia in the mid-to-high 90s this week during the Democratic National Convention, police are expecting “much larger and potentially more turbulent demonstrations.” One burning issue the police will not be able to monitor, however, is the heat rising from hopping mad Bernie supporters who feel their candidate has been cheated out of a fair nomination process. Thanks to WikiLeaks, we now know how the DNC and specifically its chief financial officer, Brad Marshall, play ball:
It might may [sic] no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief [sic]. Does he believe in a God. … He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.
Jim Geraghty of NRO notes, “There are no e-mails of any of Marshall’s colleagues reacting with shock or disapproval or rebuking him for suggesting such a course.”
