‘Es­tab­lish­ment hacks’ cost elec­tions, El­lis says

Los Angeles Times - - ESSENTIAL POLITICS - —Phil Wil­lon

Kim­berly El­lis, who chal­lenged the re­sults of the state Demo­cratic Party lead­er­ship elec­tion she lost, blamed party “es­tab­lish­ment hacks” for losses in con­gres­sional races in Ge­or­gia and South Carolina on Tues­day.

The pro­gres­sive Bay Area Demo­crat tweeted it’s “time for a new coali­tion.” She blamed her May loss to Eric Bau­man on vot­ing ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties and wants an in­de­pen­dent au­dit of the elec­tion. Bau­man re­jected the re­quest; the elec­tion is be­ing re­viewed by a party panel.
