No Democratic Party Endorsement in AD43!

Kassakhian Fails To Receive Democratic Party Endorsement Despite Attempt To Stuff Ballot Box
With 18 Illegal Ballots 

Contact: Parke Skelton 626-535-9616

The delegates of the California Democratic Party reconfirmed that they were not going to make an endorsement in the contested race between Laura Friedman and Ardy Kassakhian.

Kassakhian failed to receive the required 60% of the eligible voters. The vote was almost exactly the same as the pre-primary endorsement vote.

However, the Kassakhian campaign attempted to stuff the ballot box with 18 illegal votes by transferring in delegates from outside the District at the last minute.

These “delegates” were submitted to the Party on 8/3 and 8/5.  However, the ballots cast by the illegal 18 were signed, voted and dated from 7/16 to 7/19! Before these individuals were even submitted as delegates!


The State Party’s Credential Review Committee will meet this Wednesday to decide whether to accept or reject these illegal ballots.

It is inconceivable to us that these ballots will be accepted, however, if you want your voice to be heard in this matter contact Chris Myers, Executive Director of the California Democratic Party, and let him know that the credentials should be rejected to preserve the integrity of the Party’s endorsement process.

You can reach him at:
Please do so before 5 pm on Tuesday, August 9.
