Just how powerful is Joseph Ferriero? Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has no interest in telling the Bergen County Democratic Chairman to stay away from Denver next week, even though reporters are likely to focus on yesterday’s events – FBI agents appearing at Ferriero’s law offices and seizing documents from his personal files. Democrat State Chairman Joseph Cryan says the decision is Ferriero’s. Most others — even those who have not been accused of any wrong doing (see Coniglio, Joseph [Summer 2007]) would be told to stay home, with their invitation to the Democratic National Convention essentially revoked.
Ferriero is a delegate pledged to Hillary Clinton.
