The chairman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico is busy trying to help Gary King loss his race so that he can run in four years for the same position. He is busy removing women from chairmanships within the party that they were elected to in the first place. He is replacing them with men that hate women.
The party chairman is doing this at a time when he can attack anyone who stands up to him by claiming that we should all be working together during an election cycle. The chairman is planting his own male supporters in key positions within the party so that they can silences any opponent for the next election. He is also using women who hate other women to fill positions. These women are hard core attorneys who feel that normal women are too soft or weak.
I soundly dislike good old boy types that think they can dismiss women just because of their sex. I have known Gary King for years and he respects women. He listens to them and hears what they say about their issues. He is not a man who only cares about the rich in this state. He is our candidate for governor and we support him! The party chairman is everything and more that Martinez is accusing Gary King of being.
I emailed and facebooked the man that the chairman placed in Nancy Denker’s position on the platform’s committee the day before yesterday and even though he has the title of Director of Communication and Rapid Response, Mr. Harwell has still not returned my request for an answer as to why he would support a removal of a committee chairwomen without due process.
A number of women within the Democratic Party have expressed their displeasure privately with the failure on the party chairman’s part to work with women in good faith on many issues. Equality for women is an important issue that the women in the party take very seriously. Dismissing request for answers as to why a long time grassroots female democrat is being mistreated and bullied is a major concern. Refusing to speak with a blogger just because she represents the views of women is also very disturbing. Politics is not a game where women can be excluded.
