Tom Perez Dodges Question 3 Times When Asked if Dem Primary Was Rigged
Cuomo asked Perez about his recent claim that the Democratic Party worked against Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I., Vt.) presidential bid.
“Secretary Perez, recently you said that the primary was rigged against Bernie Sanders. Later the same day you said you misspoke when you made those comments. Which is it?” Cuomo asked.
“Well, you know, here are the facts,” Perez said. “Hillary Clinton won the Democratic primary. Hillary Clinton also won the popular vote. At the same time, because of the absence of transparency in the Democratic primary, there was a crisis of trust that ensued. And what we need in the chair of the Democratic Party is to make sure that in fact, and in perception, every single day, you are fair and neutral. That’s why when you asked a question before about primaries, you have to let that primary process go.”
“If I were the chair–if I have the privilege of winning, for instance, one of the things I would recommend would be that we set the primary debate schedule long in advance of when we know who the candidates are,” Perez continued. “We have to do everything to make sure we’re fair and transparent. And it’s not only in how we set the primary process; the DNC is black hole. And we have a crisis of confidence because it is. And that’s why the leader of the DNC needs to make sure–”
“Hold on a second. Secretary, 10 seconds, was it rigged or not?” Cuomo interjected.
