And so it begins: Bounced – One drunken Dem delegate hospitalized, another causes disturbance
A California delegate to the Democratic National Convention was hospitalized early this morning, after apparently falling unconscious in a hotel lobby following a night of drinking, while another delegate became confrontational with hotel staff and has since left the delegation, a party official said.
“Oftentimes at conventions, people who have not seen each other for a long time gather and sometimes people have too much to drink,” Flores said. “That appears to have been the case here, and we’re gathering more information.”
The statement said the delegate apologized to hotel staff and agreed to “forgo official delegation activities.”
