Will Dellums Pay for Snubbing Obama?

That’s what Matier and Ross want to know. Although congresswoman Barbara Lee may be able to leverage her Obama support to become chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, Ron Dellums treated Obama rather shabbily during the primaries, and the city may pay a price.”the Obama campaign say the Illinois senator tried repeatedly during the critical California primary to meet with Dellums – and although Dellums agreed, the meeting never happened,” they report. “Then, without so much as a courtesy call, Dellums endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton. Slights like that are not forgotten.” The only thing Dellums had going for him was his Washington connections, and now he’s gone and pissed off the most powerful person in Washington? This guy just keeps hitting ’em out of the park.
