Biden Campaign 'Mistreating Latino Field Organizers And Suppressing Latino Vote' According To Scathing Letter

95 field organizers for the Florida Democratic Party have accused Joe Biden's campaign of mistreatment, and 'suppressing the Latino vote' among other things.

In a scathing seven-page letter obtained by the Miami Herald, field organizers levied eight allegations against the campaign surrounding the lack of a "fully accountable field plan."

Among the claims: mistreatment of field organizers, relocating trained staff members without explanation, lack of organizing resources and taking on volunteers who are then left in limbo. -Miami Herald

We can only imagine that for nearly 100 Florida organizers to claim the Biden campaign has neglected Latinos - an accusation which could damage the former VP just 100 days out from the general election, in a battleground state - and as polls show waning enthusiasm from Latino voters, that things must be genuinely bad.

According to the letter, Biden's campaign lacks key infrastructure and has perpetuated a "toxic" work culture that has damaged morale among staffers.

In one grievance, several organizers were recently transferred from a heavily Puerto-Rican region to another part of the state with a small percentage of Hispanics.

"Four of five Spanish-speaking organizers along the I-4 corridor who were moved to North Florida were Puerto Rican," reads the letter, adding that input from staffers in tune with Puerto Rican residents living in Central Florida is often dismissed.

"The [Coordinated Campaign of Florida] is suppressing the Hispanic vote by removing Spanish-speaking organizers from Central Florida without explanation, which fails to confront a system of white-dominated politics we are supposed to be working against as organizers of a progressive party," reads the letter.

A Democratic official familiar with internal discussions who asked not to be named said the letter comes amid negotiations between the Coordinated Campaign in Florida and the field organizers’ union, the IBEW Local 824.

The official said organizers have not been updated on their individual assignments due to the ongoing union negotiations, which predate the letter. -Miami Herald

"We are roughly 100 days out from the election, and there is no functional targeted field outreach and organizing of the Hispanic/Spanish-speaking, Brazilian/Portuguese-speaking, and Haitian/Creole-speaking communities in our state," the letter continues. "There are no targets, scripts, data infrastructure, community outreach, or phonebanks established for this.
