Joe Biden campaign is 'suppressing the Hispanic vote' in Florida says ... group of nearly 100 Democratic organizers


Recommended Posts


Democrats often accuse Republicans of attempting to suppress the votes of American minorities. If the GOP pushes for voter ID laws, the Democrats shout "suppression!" If Republicans dare push for laws to stop election fraud — "suppression!"

On and on it goes.

But over the weekend the tables turned in Florida. Now the campaign of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is facing accusations of "suppressing the Hispanic vote" in the Sunshine State.

And accusations are coming from Democrats. Not just any Democrats — but Democratic field organizers. Nearly 100 of them.

What's that now?

A group of 94 party activists sent a seven-page internal letter to the Florida Democratic Party leadership Friday, alleging that the Biden campaign is "suppressing the Hispanic vote" in Central Florida, according to the the Miami Herald, which obtained a copy of the missive.

With just over three months to go before the presidential election, allegations of "mistreatment of field organizers, relocating trained staff members without explanation, lack of organizing resources and taking on volunteers who are then left in limbo" is not something the party or the campaign likely wants the public to hear about.

The Herald reported that the organizers claim the campaign is perpetuating a "toxic" work culture and is lacking vital infrastructure.

One of the recent party moves at issue, according to the letter, is the decision by the FDP to transfer several Spanish-speaking organizers from a region in the central part of the state that is heavily Puerto Rican to the northern region with few Hispanics.

The letter also said that input from organizers connected to Central Florida's Puerto Rican community is often dismissed, the Herald said.

"Four of five Spanish-speaking organizers along the I-4 corridor who were moved to North Florida were Puerto Rican," the letter stated, according to the Herald.

Apparently, the campaign "is suppressing the Hispanic vote by removing Spanish-speaking organizers from Central Florida without explanation, which fails to confront a system of white-dominated politics we are supposed to be working against as organizers of a progressive party," the newspaper reported.
