Morning Roundup: Minority businesses feel slighted by DNC contract process

Most of the minority entrepreneurs polled by an advocacy group said Democratic National Convention organizers controlled who would land work and who didn’t, despite a formal bidding process.

In an email poll sent to more than 400 people, 52 percent of respondents “felt that the DNC bid/contract process was rigged,” according to the survey from the Carolina Regional Minority Partnership Coalition. Full story here.

And this is the thanks we get

These entreprenuers did not even build their own businesses.  The government built their business for them and now they complain that the bid process was rigged.   That is some gratitude for you!
