Text begins here: My original letter emailed 10 days ago to Bernie's lawyer, Brad Deutsch [email@example.com]; still waiting for an answer. I published this letter in a communique to all 6700 signers of the moveon.org petition concerning getting a new New York Primary, and within a few hours, these are a few of the excellent and incisive responses, from just the ones who copied me on their letter to Mr. Deutsch.
My original letter:
Dear Mr. Deutsch:
Honestly, the only real way to shake the super delegates loose is via news, and the big news really now is whether or not Bernie will challenge the eleven (and maybe 12, if you count CA) states with documented fraud, purging, flipping, and all the other dirty tricks you should have been screaming about all along.
If you agree with what I am saying about contesting and de-certifying election results, PLEASE CALL BERNIE TODAY; if you and he will move forward with that, it could flip all of those pledged Super D's to Bernie's column, but time is running out.
Thanks for your efforts! Stephen Fox copy to Jeff Weaver [firstname.lastname@example.org]
I completely agree with Stephen Fox that the Sanders campaign should and MUST challenge the 12 states with documented fraud, purging, flipping, and all the other dirty tricks you should have been screaming about all along. I've signed many petitions regarding this issue!
I'm assuming, of course, that if the pending lawsuits already in existence as to contesting and de-certifying election results can prove fraud, all primary and caucus results would become null and void. Depending on where the trail leads, the supposed presumptive democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, should be disqualified and Bernie Sanders declared the nominee.
I now understand that the primary election process is mostly for the two parties which are not democratic but private, which is very unfair to the people who are independent or non-affiliated since THEIR TAX DOLLARS PAY FOR THE PRIVATE PARTIES' primaries & caucuses! By the DNC deciding in advance who they wanted for their candidate, they have defrauded the millions of people who pledged their heart, passion, votes and MONEY to a campaign which they deemed unviable!
At the very least, I expect the Democrats to have a contested nomination process at the convention. Bernie Sanders deserves to have every one of the votes cast for him in the primary represented. I will not support the bought and paid for nomination of Sec. Clinton. I will not support her in the election if it comes to that, nor will I vote for Trump. Bernie Sanders is the man who is right for the job.

>>Thank you for the efforts -- I am highly disappointed in the progress of these situations. It appears that the objective is to let the time pass, and soon enough there will be no time left for action.
There are still 106 undecided Superdelegates, 107 if one includes a declared for Martin O'Malley.
Why don't we mail each, a very nice letter requesting their serious consideration for their pledge for Bernie. Or one letter with all their names. At least that could be a start.

Dear Mr. Deutsch:
Hi Stephen. Thanks for the good work you're doing in surfacing instances of fraud, vote flipping and suppression of pro-Bernie speech on Facebook.
We've already emailed Attorney Deutsch and signed the Move on petition requesting a new, honest primary. Hope our collective voices make a difference.
Would like to report my own experience with Facebook jail. Like you and many other Bernie supporters, I post comments defending Bernie on online news articles. (These are individual comments posted only about one article, not reproduced and posted elsewhere). Sometimes I use my Facebook account to sign in quickly. This account is linked to a sideline business selling vintage silver jewelry; the business logo features a vintage female nude strategically covered in spectacular silver jewelry. Nothing prurient.
You can guess what happened next. An HRC troll posted a comment threatening to report * all * pro-Sanders comments as spam, adding, We can and will take them down through Facebook, which will remove any linked comments as well. While none of my posts were linked, they were obviously targeted along with others.
I received a notice that I'd violated Facebook's Community Standards, but no example was given of the offending post. Instead there appeared an enlargement of the semi-nude avatar for the online store and Facebook account. I assume the avatar was used as a pretext for the action, but the real reason must have been my flamboyant Sanders support.
My punishment turned out to be a slap on the wrist: I simply had to type in a captcha to regain account access within 24 hours. It was a first offense and I havent used Facebook to sign in since. But then, it's only been about a week.
For what it's worth: Keep up the good work
The passivity of the Bernie campaign is monumental and it encourages our foes to continue.
I realized this along time ago and honestly think our leadership doesn't have the stones to fight back, and therefore we will lose. I hope I am wrong.
Letter to Bernie's Lawyer Brad Deutsch on Decertification of Stolen Primaries
I agree with a the enclosed letter that I received. I was excited and happy to contribute to Bernie's campaign because I believe in his message and what he stands for. If you don't bring the fraud and voter suppression issues out in the open, I think it will be difficult to replicate the many donations received in this campaign in future campaigns.
This situation is very damaging to the political process. After all, how can citizens contribute their hard earned money to bogus elections? The DNC is extremely corrupt! If this issue is not dealt with, I think many people will walk away from the party.
My parents were democrats and I have been a democrat my whole life but I will vote for Jill Stein in November if Bernie is not on the ticket.
Dear Brad - if one loses a contest fair and square, it is right to be graceful and accept defeat. If we lose this election because of voting fraud and election theft, then we must not accept defeat. PLEASE - there are at least 11 state results that should be contested.
If we wish to fight all the inequities of our society, can we afford not to fight for our chances of doing that by allowing a corrupt election?
Please act soon and appropriately to right these wrongs, by immediate Federal Court action!
