The reaction in the video to the election of Tom Perez as head of the DNC is fairly typical of what I’m seeing around the net. There is even a hash tag for it. #DemExit I have next to nothing in common with these folk except the desire for an end to Prohibition. But that is not the point.

After contentious debate, the Democratic Party has selected a new DNC chairman: Tom Perez.

Progressives favored Keith Ellison, who was backed by Bernie Sanders, and see Perez as another establishment tool that conspired to boost Hillary Clinton over Sanders in the 2016 primary. As The Intercept noted, Perez was overly friendly to big banks as secretary of labor under Obama, granting privileges to banks that plead guilty to market manipulation.
