Mich DNC member says 69-59 delegate plan flawed
(2008-05-29)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A top Michigan Democrat has broken ranks
with state party leaders, saying a plan to split the state's
national convention delegates 69-59 between Hillary Rodham Clinton
and Barack Obama is "fatally flawed."
Democratic National Committee member Joel Ferguson sent a letter
Thursday to the co-chairs of the DNC's Rules and Bylaws Committee
seeking to seat all of Michigan's delegates based on the results of
the disputed Jan. 15 election.
Clinton won; Obama was not on the ballot.
Failing that, he says the pledged delegates should get a
half-vote each and superdelegates should get a full vote.
Ferguson is a superdelegate pledged to Clinton.
A message seeking comment was left Thursday afternoon with state
Democratic Chairman Mark Brewer.
