Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign violated Democratic Party rules and engaged in improper and possibly illegal actions to steal the 2008 Democratic Party presidential nomination from Hillary Clinton, according to a worker for Hillary’s campaign.
Michele Thomas, a professional photographer in Hollywood, told WND in an exclusive interview that her resistance to the Obama campaign made her a target of intimidation.
“I have received death threats from Obama’s people,” she said. “I think I was called a ‘racist’ a thousand times. If you didn’t stand for Obama, you were a racist. It was a way to intimidate you.”
As WND reported yesterday, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has expanded the scope of his law enforcement investigation into President Obama’s presidential eligibility to include evidence of criminal activity by the Obama campaign in the 2008 Democratic Party primary race.
Thomas’ charges were affirmed by a Hollywood producer who spoke to WND, Bettina Viviano, who claims that it was a common belief inside Hillary Clinton’s campaign that Obama was not eligible to be president and that she heard Bill Clinton say it in a telephone conference call.
Thomas started out as a volunteer for Hillary in Los Angeles, making thousands of phone calls from the local campaign office.
What she witnessed while volunteering for Hillary in the Nevada Democratic Party caucuses eventually turned her into an activist.
“The Obama campaign people were stealing the caucuses – throwing away votes, intimidating people from entering the caucus locations,” she said. “It was very systematic. The Obama supporters got control over the caucus packages and they manipulated the vote.”
She said she was astounded that the media was not interested in covering the alleged abuses.
“Everyone knew the Obama people were stealing the election,” she charged.
Howard Dean, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee at time, and then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi changed the rules in Obama’s favor as the primaries went on, Thomas said.
“The leadership of the Democratic Party were not going to let Hillary win the nomination; it didn’t matter what Democratic voters wanted,” she said.
By June 2008, Thomas said, the Democratic Party and the media declared Obama the winner of the Democratic Party presidential nomination even though Obama did not have the necessary number of delegates and Clinton, at most, was only a few behind Obama in the delegate count.
