At a pro-Bernie Sanders rally on Tuesday at the Democratic National Convention, MSNBC interviewed a delegate from Nebraska who supports the Vermont senator but would not show her face on TV for fear that the Democratic National Committee would pull her credential for not being “loyal to the party.”
Noting that there were several hundred Sanders supporters protesting against the Democratic National Committee, MSNBC’s Kerry Sanders said, “These are the people who say that they feel that the Democratic National Committee has hoodwinked them, they feel betrayed and they’re upset and they’re unwilling to accept that Bernie Sanders’s role is not larger as this election proceeds.” (RELATED: Leaked DNC Documents Show Plans To Reward Big Donors With Federal Appointments)
Sanders asked one of Bernie Sanders’s supporters, “Do you feel betrayed and why?”
“Yes, definitely betrayed by the Democratic Party because of the corruption and the fraud that’s been happening behind the scenes,” one Sanders supporter said who was willing to show her face. She said, “We’ll see” if Clinton gets her support in the election.
However, another supporter of Bernie Sanders would not show her face on TV. She said, “The process needs to be completely overhauled. It’s ridiculous that I can’t show my face or I’ll lose my credentials.”
“And that’s why you can’t show your face on camera now,” Sanders followed up.
“That’s correct,” the Nebraska delegate said, adding that if she showed her face as a Bernie Sanders supporter and said something critical of the DNC, she believed her “credentials will be removed for not being loyal to the party.”
