Update on Wearing Obama T-Shirt at Somervell County Democratic Conventions

31 March 2008 at 10:09:29 AM

Iwrote about this on Saturday, that I was told by someone at the county convention that it was not appropriate for me to be wearing an Obama t-shirt. When the chair asked the person to cite the rule from the TDP booklet given out at the precinct convention, he apparently could not, but he told me that, while it was okay for me to wear the t-shirt there, it was not okay for me to be wearing it while I was conducting the precinct convention a few weeks earlier. I obviously am not perfect and I can't say I know all the rules backwards and forwards, so I decided to call up the TDP today and ask them if I had violated a rule by wearing an Obama t-shirt while running the precinct convention. There is no rule against this, only against doing so during elections. The ban against electioneering definitely makes sense, but not for conventions. Why? Because anyone attending the conventions has already voted, has already formed an opinion for which person they want to support, and intends on going to convention to get as many delegates for one candidate over another as possible. So it's not like it's a voting secret. Beyond that, the rules, when you read them, continuously talk about making the whole convention process as fair and evenly divided as possible, even down to making sure that the committees are balanced, not just by candidate preference, but by sex, gender, race, etc. Anyone that went to the convention to try to skirt the rules wasn't living up to the spirit of the Democratic party. And of course, that last is the reason I called the horse's mouth, the TDP, as I certainly don't want anyone saying that I would be one that was trying to flout TDP rules.
