Julian Bond to Howard Dean: Seat the Delegates!

Former Georgia state Representative and current Chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Julian Bond wrote to DNC Chairman Howard Dean arguing the same thing I and many others have been arguing. The DNC MUST seat the delegates from both Florida and Michigan. Bond is specific in stating "we are deeply concerned that not finding a solution to this dilemma that recognizes the will and intent of Florida and Michigan voters could cast troubling aspirations on the democratic process of selecting candidates in a fully and equally inclusive manner."

Politico.com has the letter he wrote.

It's what I've been saying all along. We must seat the delegates. We are disenfranchising our own if we don't.
