We recently published a short piece on how the Democratic Party leadership has been attempting to force progressive candidates out of state and local races in favor of their own hand picked darlings. In particular, the story revolved around Levi Tillemann, who was pressured by the Party Elite to drop out of a race for Congress in Colorado.
The problem for the party elite was that Tillemann recorded one incident where a party bigwig basically told him to withdraw or face retaliation. He released the recording to Intercept magazine, which is spreading the story widely.
In addition, the venerable progressive TV news program, DemocracyNow has picked up the story and is presenting the full and sordid tale for all to see.
