Cornel West Back Stabs Dems

Cornel West endorses Jill Stein and says she – not Hillary Clinton – is the 'only progressive woman in the race' - LA Times:

Not all of Bernie Sanders' high-profile supporters are backing Hillary Clinton.

In a sharply worded op-ed article in the Guardian, Cornel West, an influential scholar and civil rights activist who was a staunch supporter of Sanders in the Democratic presidential primaries, endorsed Green Party candidate Jill Stein, calling her the "only progressive woman in the race..."
The Democrats should have never let Sanders into the race, nor should they have allowed West a seat on the platform committee. People who have worked for the party for decades were denied a chance for the Committee; West, at best, has been an irritating gadfly.
