"cuyahoga county democratic party" Discussed on The Takeaway

"On tuesday. Democrats voted in the primary for a special election to fill the congressional seat. In ohio's eleventh district marcia fudge vacated that seat to join president biden's cabinet as housing secretary shantelle brown the chairwoman of the cuyahoga county democratic party won the primary beating out nina turner a former state senator and co chair of senator bernie sanders presidential campaign now. Ohio eleven is a safe. Democratic district and brown is strongly favored to win the general election in november. Now this single how seat though. It's a big deal because the battle between brown and turner was billed as a surrogate showdown between the progressive and moderate forces in the national democratic party. Here to walk through the special election. Primary and ohio is julie car might and ap reporter based in ohio. Welcome julie happy to be here. And amy walter is back with us to talk politics. Amy's the editor in chief of the cook. Political report with amy walter and former host of politics with amy walter the takeaway. Welcome back amy. I am once again so very happy to be here. All right julie. I have to say. I was surprised by the results. Turner look like the front runner and had a lot more fundraising dollars. How that brown one this well. What we saw was this huge surge in the last several weeks of the campaign. And you're absolutely right. Nina turner had been campaigning. Hard here for months and She's a firebrand fiery speaker Inspires law of crowds who are favorable toward bernie sanders and all of the sudden shantelle brown became the local favourite Establishment democrats like jim clyburn and hillary clinton and others a hopped into the race and got behind her a bunch of unions And a bunch of super pacs. amy All politics are local. That's the great story. And yet this one was certainly hyper local but also very much not mobile. That's right my like now. It's all politics is local. Except when it's not and more and more. It's not and i think in many ways. It was the sort of proxy fight between the biden and bernie sanders wings of the party. But really what it. What it is is not ideological is much more about the kind of person to sit in the seat in terms of their temperament their personality. More important whether this person is going to be a team player. Which is what. Sean brown was arguing. Not only going to be a backer of joe biden. Which joe biden won this district in the primary against bernie sanders. Hilary clinton won this district overwhelmingly back in two thousand sixteen against bernie sanders. So saying i'm going to be on the team which nina turn has come out against both of those leaders when she was with the sanders campaign. I'm going to be on the team. I'm gonna be a vote with leadership. You can't count on nina turner being part of the team. She is a rogue agent and when democrats have just a narrow majority in the house. When joe biden's agenda depends on fifty. Senator sticking together in every single one of the democrats in the house sticking together. We can't afford to have a rogue individual on the democratic side Julie helped me walk through this a little bit. Because in certain ways. Nina turner is robustness is precisely why she is who she is. On a national stage it was her willingness to go against the establishment repeatedly at the state level. That is what made her so popular and also in ohio supposed to be pretty independent thinking. That's a really good point. And of course. Ironically the day ohioans made this choice was the same day that progressives in washington achieved of big goal of pressuring president biden to kind of rollback his his reticence on this eviction moratorium. So yeah they were seeing. Some huge victories and that kind of pressure was what they wanted to continue with her but I do think that is right that the idea that she might defect from a democratic majority. That's so slim. Was maybe frightening to some of these. Democrats are we at a p had had a poll that showed really the democratic party. Loyalists are very happy with their party. Right now they're happy with biden. They're happy with what's happening in terms of the agenda and they really wanted that to the extent that they poured into our state and started rallying for her and Nina turner who had had a double digit lead early on and for a long time. According to you know whatever polling was available just wasn't able to overcome. So i'm also interested amy in the kind of race gender politics of this. I mean these are the two black women running for a seat recently. Vacated by a black woman and held prior to that another. Wipe woman stephanie. Tubbs jones who passed away suddenly in quite young in two thousand eight. And i'm wondering about this idea of being an african american woman but also be a team player for the democrats. I mean that's something. We get called on all the time by the party as voters and apparently as legislators and yet the congressional black caucus has also always been kind of the conscience of the party pushing the party to be a bit more progressive than it. Otherwise would be so. Is that changing. That's a really good point and remember the cbc came out and endorsed trump l brown in this race. Jim clyburn went out and campaigned for brown. Which while we think of him as somebody who gets involved in politics obviously his endorsement of of then candidate joe biden was critical in the twenty twenty primary. And he's not the kind of person who shows up into individual house races. But i think that why you saw the cbc engaged here was the sense of. We do need a Sticking together ness right that our ability to actually get things done to shift the conversation to make sure our priorities are put on the front burner is to be united and to be united means that everybody understands that we gotta work together on this team and i think what really frustrated so many folks about turner jim clyburn said this specifically was the fact that it's not just that she wants to push the establishment or to speak her mind. It's that she publicly attacked. Kleiber publicly attacked biden was circumspect about her 2016 vote in other words that not only did was she not a supporter of hillary clinton in the primary but may not have voted for her against donald trump. And so. I do think that there was a look. We understand the important role that african american voters play in the election that play to the core of the democratic base. How important they are and at the same time. Wanna get anything done. We all have to be rowing in the same direction. All right julie. Let's talk about the general election. That is coming up now again. Ohio eleven should be a safe democratic district. But as i was just talking about around black women holding the seat turns out. The republican nominee is also an african american woman. Is that gonna make a difference in. It's very interesting isn't it. So laverne gore is her name and she's lay won. The republican primary. There wasn't really much competition but doesn't that in some ways begin to a race The ability of shantelle ground to talk about Black and women's issues in november as a way to choose her over laverne gore Gore is going to try to talk about the failure of democratic leadership in the city of cleveland..

"He didn't harass anybody even if the offensive jokes but kicked out of his seat. I mean come on down come on come on man i know your come on man thing yup. Oh oh come on come on come on you that i needed that but yeah so as usual you know i spend all day reading tweets and and taking temperature The temperature of twitter and sort of seeing where people are at an all day every day all day every day i read. You know that should happen. What should happen the what you just said right. I mean we have so many should do. You know what should happen. Trump should be in prison. Yes cuomo should be kicked out. You know what should happen. We should release by was in crisis and passing mansion. Should shut his trap. You know what should happen but none of these things seem to happen either when we want them to happen or ever know right and say should right and i agree that andrew cuomo needs to go bad guy bad dude as a environmental coffeehouse set in the chat room. A few minutes ago i bet. New yorkers are kind of bummed that its cynthia. Nixon is not governor right now because they wouldn't have these problems right right. If the lieutenant governor goes she'll be the first she'll be the first female but i got kathy hokuto about her conservative. She's about as oh give a demo. She's you know blue dog new damn all the way down she. She mansion fan mansion. I doubt it. I i mean. She's a blue dog. she's certainly not a progressive. But you know. I hope she wouldn't go all the way over to the mansion side but probably kathy hokuto was is not a great candidate. I believe she's the one who replaced kirsten gillibrand in the house when kirsten gillibrand replaced hillary clinton in the senate when hillary clinton became secretary of state And and kirsten gillibrand when she was in the house was also very blue doggy. because that's that district But kathy hokey was still kinda that blue doggie and she why she house she got house. She rose to lieutenant governor. I don't really remember exactly how it came about. But she sort of inherited that job no she's no progressive. But i can't be any worse than andrew cuomo. She certainly not going to go around grabbing men by the dick or will she know i. I have a feeling he's an joking. Thank you. I'm here all night All right so i have some tweets a whole bunch of tweets about today And then i have some from yesterday but today's are pretty much all about cuomo. Okay well just just before we get into this yes. Andrew cuomo is dominating the news but a few other things are going on today. One is election in ohio ohio. And this talking about blue dogs and progressives big test today actually on two fronts on on the on the left on the democrat side We have a primary to fill the seat vacated by marcia fudge when she joined joe biden's cabinet as secretary of how health and housing and urban development and so it's between nina turner and shoot. I'm drawing a blank on her name. Hold on to. I will tell you in a second hold on. I pull my notes on screen. I'm no. I do that all the time. Yeah i do too. Because i'm getting old in my. I can't ever remember somebody calling my phone. My ringtone is elvis costello's radio radio so case you were wondering why you heard that music okay. So it's it's nina turner on the left. And then sean tell brown who is your basic blue dog. She's she chairs the cuyahoga county democratic party. She's endorsed by jim. Clyburn hillary clinton and then you've got nina turner who is endorsed by bernie sanders and afc. And who is labeled as a firebrand a firebrand who so. That's the fight on the left. That's an ohio's eleventh district but there's another primary also going on in ohio's fifteenth to Let's see. I don't know who held that seat. Wyatt's open a. I'm drawing a blank there but it's a republican race and trump is backing a coal lobbyist to. I'm mike carey who's never run for office before But trump stepped out and did get out the vote. Tele rally for him on Last night and a big super pac operated by trump's people bought three hundred and fifty thousand dollars in text messages and adds to support this guy and But but the other guy who is the other guy. I don't even know who the other guy who is running against I i don't have that information here. But see trump just lost a similar special election in texas last week where he backed the widow of the guy who was elected to that seat but he died of covert before he could take off and so his wife ran in in a special election. It was it was it went to a runoff trump. Back the wife over the you know the guy who's been in political circles and run for office before and that's who won so it was trump's first real defeat and now a lot of democrats voted for the opponent out. I'm sure just to make sure that you know so to give trump loss and that could happen again tonight in ohio and that's what the trump people are fearing. I hope he loses. I and again. I don't even know who the other. I don't have it in my notes. I did a bad job this morning. Apparently i have the guy who trump is endorsing. His never run for office before a coal lobbyist in ohio. And we'll see the other person. I i don't know i gotta find out who's running in ohio's fifteenth district ohio. Yeah in the meantime you can talk laughing and and and tell us something else. That's going on today. Oh well nothing is going on. That's the only thing is going on in the news. olympics olympics Simone biles our will. Yeah she's the she's an amazing person. I am so too. i'm glad she got the bronze. I'm glad that that she came back. people were all over. I don't know how she has such a strong constitution. I'd be like a roll up in a little ball and crying and saying do you guys not only you know. She went through obviously personal turmoil. I mean she's been working for this for so long with all the accolades and the goat. And the you know. And then she she got the twisties and can't tell up from down when she's twisting in the air and that's very dangerous so she dropped out. Well apparently on the balance beam. She's not affected by the twisties for whatever reason and for those cynics out there who thinking of course she just does the one that she feels most comfortable one. Apparently the bean is her worst apparatus. It's it's the one she's least comfortable doing and she got lebron's and she had to relearn apparently from what i saw. She had to relearn being in the you know doing her own team. Censure since her Stepping out for short time so it was like a quick learning curve for her to get back in. And how she she got back in and did it okay so here are trashing her trashing or and you know what i give her so much credit and in the long run I think she'll come out smelling like a rose. She she was there. He's amazing in every every one of those competitions that she had to back out of that she was supposed to win golden. She was there rooting for team. And i think she she just showed such a great character Yeah i think you know. She just a mentored her legacy by Being magnanimous being who she is apparently in good for her art. So here's the deal with ohio's fifteenth a district race. The today's the primaries general be held november second special election fills the vacancy left by. Steve stivers republican who resigned to become president and ceo of the ohio chamber of commerce. All right so that's why he's out so who's running is Oh there's a whole shitload of republicans So that's why. I didn't know so we have my carry i but there are other names..

"With you guys giant show ahead so we've got heroes and villains. I mean Probably more so than any other day. We've got here nina. Turner and other just democrats for different stories And then unfortunately a lot of democratic villains Including nancy pelosi. Joe mansion krista cinema. Jim clyburn. There's a lot to fight back against and touch republicans as well but the big interface. Party fight between democrats is gigantic today and and the main topic of conversation. This this details on the stories are amazing. Stay tuned for each and every one of them are cassie. Let's get started all right. Well let's talk about the congressional race for ohio's eleventh district shantelle brown the corporate democrat who's running against progressive candidate nina turner for ohio's congressional seat in the eleventh district is facing ethics investigation. Potentially over her handling of government contracts when she was part of the county council in ohio. Now she's currently part of the same council while simultaneously serving as the head of the cuyahoga county democratic party and Recently the intercept reported on some of the you know sweetheart deals that took place That her donors and also a romantic partner of hers Got to take advantage of so here. The details on that ten weeks later one of the firms owners well. This is in february. Twentieth of twenty seventeen brown had deemed. Ricky said that she would recuse herself from any decisions regarding government grants to people that she knew now. Ten weeks later one of the firms owners helped organize a fundraiser. That bankrolled a significant portion of a reelection campaign making an in kind donation of two thousand dollars at a fundraiser. For brown that netted her over seven thousand dollars a significant sum in a low budget world of cleveland area council races. So that's what happened after she had already approved some funding to a general contractor called perk and perk was actually associated with her her a romantic partner. A man named mark perkins so. She makes that decision immediately. After that about ten weeks later she offers another seven. Thousand dollar. grant You know to the organization that had given her two thousand dollars in fundraising money. and total brown has approved more than seventeen million dollars to perk and has received thirteen thousand dollars in campaign donations from the perkins family and perks. Current owners the family and so these are illegal. They're very clear. Laws preventing this type of dealing from happening one more graphic for you because it gives you a sense of what she was. Engaged in which again goes against The state laws besides the seven million dollar contract in two thousand seventeen brown also voted on three other occasions to approve cuyahoga city contracts for perk totally an additional ten million dollars between two thousand fifteen and twenty nineteen and an august of two thousand twenty. She voted in favor of contracts of one point. Eight seven five million to two firms one headed by mark perkins's sister remember mark perkins Is associated that's a romantic partner associated with perc So this is mark. Perkins's sister and a second who's former vice president is another family member of perkins perk and mc tech a company owned by mark perkins are frequent and longtime business associates. So tell you all that. Because clearly she's offering or approving government contracts to her love interest She's doing favors very clear. Favors in the form of government grants to The individuals who have funded her campaigns. And so that kind of dealing is is unacceptable according to state law. Which i'll read to you in just a minute okay. So there's two levels of corruption here by the way we don't care about her personal care this she's giving contracts someone who's our partner and so the one see corruption is obvious here one hundred. Ub tens of millions of dollars in contracts with my official position And you know their partners. That's number one and number two. I'll get money from your campaign contributions from that business. I mean getting the campaign. contributions is corruption one. Oh one in. America i know a lot of the media has gotten used to well. Of course corporations give money and then the politicians serve them and not the. That's normal they don't even report on an intercept doing a fantastic job of actually pointing out something. That's illegal in this case. And now apparently they're following up in cleveland to see she did in fact break the law and there should be consequences. Meanwhile by the corporate democrats thin almost the entire democratic establishment seeing this huge corruption scandal. Go way to go with. And they're pouring more money into her campaign not less if a progressive had the slightest little bit of controversy. All you gotta get you gotta get out other. Endorse cetera right. There's a massive ethics controversy but for corporate democrats which is almost all democratic leadership. That's not the bug that's a feature but the second level of the corruption is remember. A brown is the head of the democratic party in this county. And everybody knows if you're going to run for office you have to step down from me. And they had a democratic party. Because obviously you can't run the party in a neutral way when you're in a race within the party like i want to know i'm just gonna run the democratic party completely corruptly and to my own benefit and that by the way that's why a lot of locals endorsed nina turner. Because they're like no well. That's obviously not right. I don't care who comes in from washington and tells me that corruption is awesome. I know that if you're had a democratic party in your primary you have to step down you can't rig the entire party in your own favor and a primary race that's insane. Well wait till they get a load of this ethics probe and a lot of them have and a lot of the The endorsers have now switched to nina. Turn right so the daily poster Reviewed emails showing that the ohio state auditor has reviewed the allegations and they have referred the matter to the state ethics commission. And just so you know. The details of what. The state laws in ohio indicate under ohio law. Public officials are prohibited from knowingly authorizing or using their authority or influence to secure authorization of any public contract in which the public official a member of the public officials family or any of the public officials. Business associates has an interest violation of the statute is actually a felony and penalties can include prison. Time now do i. She's actually going to serve prison time. No but this is something you know after they do investigation investigation and they further confirm The intercepts reporting on this yes. She broke the law. And it is a felony in that state. And you're right jank if anything even remotely controversial happens like for progressives. If nina turner had allegedly done something controversial you have no doubt that democrats would focus on that. They would have like laser beams like focused on that. But here's the thing since. Tina doesn't have any controversies attached to her. They're just manufacturing. Controversies in fact Jim clyburn representative jim. Clyburn apparently became incredibly upset over a town hall that featured The young turks jank. Was there killer. Mike and nina turner. It was a town hall. Ford nina turner and clyburn was going to endorse her anyway. But shantelle browns team found this snippet from the townhall sent it to clyburn and he got very upset about it allegedly. So let's take a quick look at that what i realize as we were in south carolina and sixtee- and i saw the dmc. Dnc tried to sabotage strongest candidate. What i realized when i saw people like clyborn which i don't have a problem with south carolina for the good work. He's done..

Last week House minority leader Kevin McCarthy pulled all his recommended committee members 5 of them after House speaker Nancy Pelosi vetoed two of his picks. U.S. capitol police sergeant aquilino gonal spoke first during the insurrection. He was beaten with a flagpole and attacked with chemical spray. Canal is a Dominican immigrant who served in the U.S. Army in Iraq. While we were subjected was like something from a medieval bottle we forehand to him inch by inch to prevent an invasion of the care provided intent on subordinating our democratic process. My fellow officers and I were committed to not letting any writers breach the capital. It was a prolonged and desperate struggle. The writers attempted to breach the capital were shouting Trump send us. Pick the right side. We want Trump. I baby her officers screaming in agony and pain just an arm left from me. I didn't know at that time that was officer Hodges. And he's here today to testify. I too was being crushed by the writers. I could feel my myself losing oxygen and recall thinking to myself this is how I'm going to die defending this entrance. U.S. capitol police sergeant aquilino gunnel testifying Tuesday before the House select committee investigating the January 6th insurrection at the capitol. During his testimony Gino referenced D.C. Metropolitan Police department officer Daniel Hodges who also testified at the hearing describing how Trump supporters almost crushed him to death. On my left was a man with a clear ride shield stolen during the assault. He slammed it against me and with all the weight of the body is pushing behind him trapped me. My arms were pinned and effectively useless trapped against either the shield on my left or the door frame on my right. With my posture granting me no functional strength or freedom of movement. I was effectively defenseless. And gradually sustaining injury from the increasing pressure of the mob. Directly in front of me a man seized the opportunity of my vulnerability. Grabbed the front of my gas mask and used it to beat my head against the door. He switched to pulling it off my head the strap stretching against my skull and straining my neck. He never entered uttered any words I recognized but opted instead for guttural screams. I remember him foaming at the mouth. He also put his cell phone as mouths so they had both fans free to assault me. Eventually he succeeded in stripping away my gas mask and a new rush of exposure to CS and OC spray hit me. The mob of terrorists were coordinating their efforts now shouting heave Ho. As a synchronized pushing their weight forward crushingly further against the metal door frame. The man in front of me grabbed my baton that I still held in my hands. And my current state I was unable to retain my weapon. He bashed me in the head and faced with rupturing my lip and adding additional injury to my skull. That was D.C. Metropolitan Police department officer Daniel Hodges. And this is Mike phenom who is also an officer with the D.C. Metropolitan Police. He suffered a heart.

"cuyahoga county democratic party" Discussed on The Young Turks

"I'll give you those details in just a second but the new york times just covered this race and i wanted to share their framing on it but also some of the information that we know regarding who's supporting what and where everyone stands on this particular race. I an interesting excerpt from the new york times piece democrats. There's no specificity here. just democrats democrats say. There is little broader significance to this individual house primary contest. One that pits to black women against each other in a safe democratic district that had been represented by marcia fudge before she was confirmed as president biden secretary of housing and urban development by the way position that fudge before being named for that position thought she didn't want because typically it just goes to Someone who's black when reality she wanted to be in charge of the agriculture department. Anyway i wanted to give you guys that context. I think it's important but with that. Said what are your thoughts. On that. First excerpt that i read. So why are we talking about it. I mean this is. What's amazing right. You're like lights largely non important in the grand democratic strategy but we gotta stick it to the progressives and keep them in their place literally all they're just admitting that it's not strategic and yet hundreds of thousands of dollars from from like democrats. I mean is the d triple c involved at this point And actually pro israeli forces the united states have been just funneling money into nina turner's opponent. So that's all you need to know right. There is that actually they want other democrats to lose. Meanwhile progressives are always being told. Oh you hate unity. Why do you eight unity honey. Nina turner was leading by double digits. Up until you funneled all that money our opponent so we were fine with you before that. Think you're against unity anyway. Yeah no that's exactly right. So you know nina turner and her campaign had done a poll just to see where everyone stood. In this race and she was leading i mean chantal brown was so far behind and that was when hillary clinton got involved in did her endorsement. At first i was like who cares. I mean hillary clinton is not a popular figure so if. I were nina turner. I'd be elated about this. Jake made an important point. And i think he was right. That was hillary clinton essentially doing like a allowed call to corporate democrats and their you know their funders to get involved in this race and show their support for shantelle brown. And that's exactly what happened. So that excerpt. I read you from the new york. Times was immediately followed with this it in the final weeks of the campaign. The party establishment is throwing copious. This is correct. Copious amounts of time and money into an effort to stop miss turner a fiery former cleveland councilwoman and ohio state senator. And let's be clear on the differences between a turner and sean brown nina turner fights for everything that we experienced during the bernie sanders campaign. Not just in two thousand sixteen but also in two thousand twenty medicare for all a living wage free college. You know all of the bread and butter issues that progressives find incredibly important i think the majority of americans find incredibly important to be honest Shantelle brown though even in this article in the context of this Legacy outlet has Made it clear like she's just this laid back you know won't go against the grain candidate. The congressional black caucus political action committee though has endorsed chantal brown. That's turner's main rival The cuyahoga county democratic party chairwoman so of hillary clinton and the highest ranking black highest ranking black member of the house. Jim clyburn who will be campaigning. This weekend for brown they argue. That brown is the better candidate with a unifying message. Reference that Franchesca beta little earlier but to be fair. Nina turner also has backing representative andrea cossio. Cortez of new york. We'll be knocking on doors for the first or four her the same weekend representative clyburn will be in town bernie. Sanders will join the fray in person the last weekend before the election and I should also note that. The working families party is Forming a pack in order to provide some funding for nina turner's campaign. They're going to give at least one hundred fifty thousand dollars up to two hundred thousand dollars. We'll see what the end result is but the money is one thing i think the the support is incredibly important. Getting people motivated and excited is incredibly important and Yet i mean nina turner. Winning is very important okay. I don't think that electoral politics or the end all be all in fact i cringe anytime. Anyone tries to say that electoral politics or the mo- like it's the most important thing nothing else matters. No grassroots organizing matters pressure from outside Matters right like there needs to be this outside inside a strategy. We need more labor unions. We need to empower labour. That's a huge part of the equation. Something that you talk about quite a bit Franchesca and and you know if you care to elaborate on it. I'd love to hear it. Well yeah. I think you're you're totally right about inside out strategy and what this shows. Is that the democratic party is deathly afraid of the outside strategy. They are terrified of the grassroots right. Where is the republican party. Love their grassroots. Oyo you've got extremist views. Love it now. Democrats don't have extremist views. Right like democrats are like you know. Hey we want healthcare. Hey we want a green new deal you know. You see the amazon's burning stop that as soon as possible. Thanks hey i wanna live. I wanna family and maybe grandchildren anyway like. That's that is that is seen as extreme. And i will also say this clyburn man couldn't involve once again clyburn. Aw thank you mr middle of the road and unlike and here. Here's what we the lesson of. Two thousand twenty is very interesting curious. What you think but i feel like this. This says to us that democrats are taking away from twenty twenty that once again the way to go is middle of the road is keep it safe is don't cause too many waves. Republicans think that joe biden is a communist. Think he is a social. It doesn't matter then if you put up an actual democratic socialist. You're still going to get the same critiques. And i would argue that. Like look i think getting headlines as good of meat. Turner is in congress. She'll get headlines and that will benefit the movements for all of the things that we're talking about in the we want to win. It's just that they're so afraid. And and i don't know i think the last my last point is one thing that keeps on getting trotted out. All you hear it all the time on mainstream media de fund. The police really hurt democrats de fund. The police really heard black lives matter really hurting the debt. Really because actually if you look at the studies there was more voter energy Because of the black lives matter movement in twenty. Twenty because of everything. that's that popped off after. George floyd was murdered that galvanized people to the polls rights. I wanna say biden was your choice. I say that that movement energy that outside energy also propelled you into victory. So don't turn your nose a turn your back on that roots. No the corporate wing of the democratic party doesn't get called out enough regarding the gas lighting that they engage in on a regular basis..
