Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile's new book "Hacks" claims the party's apparatus tilted the nominating process toward Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders.
But in an interview with KQED on Friday, Brazile says she didn't cast a ballot for either one of them in the June 14 District of Columbia primary where she votes. By that time, Clinton had wrapped up the nomination.
"I didn't want to get involved in the primary," Brazile said on KQED's Forum. "The last time I got involved in a Democratic primary was Al Gore versus Bill Bradley in 2000.
"In 2008 they said, 'Donna, you're black you gotta be for Obama. Donna, you're a woman, you gotta be for Hillary.' And you know what I told people? 'I'm getting old and grumpy, I might support John McCain, so back off.'"
When pressed, Brazile said she wrote in the name of D.C.'s representative in Congress, Eleanor Holmes Norton, "because I'm an activist Democrat." Asked if it was a protest vote, Brazile said, "Hell yeah, it was a protest. I did not want to get involved."
