2 Vermont DNC delegates excluded due to gender - WCAX.COM Local Vermont News, Weather and Sports-
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Two elected Vermont delegates to the Democratic National Convention, barred because they are men, have filed a formal complaint with the convention's credentials committee.
The national party earlier this month ordered the state party to replace State Sen. Tim Ashe and longtime party stalwart Ken Dean with women to achieve gender balance.

Are you indicating a dislike of equality? I for my part am disappointed that there is no mention of equal representation of all the varying LGBT variants and combinations of mixed race parantage. It seems sooo Conservative to discriminate like that.

It's the lefties eating their own :)

Imagine that. In addition to wealth being redistributed, the DNC will redistribute people amongst the several states by gender. What's next? Racial redistribution? A new "bussing" plan on a national level? :doh :lamo

God almighty !

The good side of me hates election cycles because of all the minuscule events that gets the partisans all worked up.

But, my evil side laughs to no end.

I think all of the people who would be most affected by this news are still trying to dazzle us with their opinions on democrat party morals and ethics in other threads.
