Jim Burn: Democratic Committee = "a paramilitary operation"

According to a source who attended Tuesday night's Democratic City Committee election meeting, Jim Burn, Chair of the Allegheny County Democratic Committee, let it be known that the Democratic Committee is a "paramilitary operation" with a clear chain of command and no room for dissent (even in a Democratic primary).

He also compared supporting someone other than an endorsed candidate to crossing a union picket line. If you follow Burn's logic, the late Pittsburgh Mayor Dick Caliguiri was a scab.

Nice one, Jim!

Looks like they're back to marching in lockstep (guess we should forget any previous musings from Burn on the possibility of ever having an "open primary").


The Ideal Committee Member (according to Burn):

Holy cow. Chairman Jim Burn just declared a bloodhunt on Mayor Ravenstahl??

Because he crossed the picket line and endorsed an unendorsed candidate...

At the very least he's calling lukey a SCAB.
