Bernie endorses Muslim congressman for DNC chairman

Keith Ellison was early supporter of Sanders campaign

(The Hill) Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is endorsing Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota to be the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, was an early supporter of Sanders’s Democratic primary bid.

The co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus has expressed interest in the DNC chairmanship for some time and according to a report from Politico, Ellison had previously reached out to Hillary Clinton campaign officials and state party chairmen.

Sanders told Minnesota Public Radio that he supports Ellison to fill the position of party chairman.

Bernie who? The guy who endorsed Clinton?

That's because Bernie is an extreme left socialist. Muslim democrats are like-minded.

What would you expect from a dummy that campaigns for a corrupt nasty fat democrat that had already kicked him in the teeth and out of the race?
