Pri­mary vot­ing ‘rigged’

Boston Herald - - NEWS -

As an in­de­pen­dent voter who has voted for both par­ties, I was one of those ex­cited and in­spired by U.S. Sen. Bernie San­ders (“Trump, Liz tweet barbs,” Nov. 4). No one po­lit­i­cal fam­ily should ever con­trol ei­ther of our coun­try’s two par­ties, so he rep­re­sented some­thing new.

When hack­ers re­vealed that the Demo­cratic Party’s pri­mary elec­tion was “rigged,” I was shocked. I felt that Clinton and her sur­ro­gates had be­trayed our Amer­i­can val­ues.

This rev­e­la­tion led to the ouster of Demo­cratic National Com­mit­tee chief Deb­bie Wasser­man Schultz.

At this point, ei­ther the Democrats or Repub­li­cans in Washington, D.C., could and should ini­ti­ate an in­ves­ti­ga­tion. We are owed of­fi­cial an­swers, not just ex-DNC of­fi­cial Donna Brazile’s tell-all book. — A.J. Castilla, Bos­ton
