Clinton Allies Suppress the Vote in Nevada


news.yahoo.com

On Meet the Press on Sunday, Hillary Clinton said her campaign had nothing to do with a lawsuit--written about by my editor Katrina vanden Heuvel--that threatens to prevent thousands of workers from voting in the Nevada caucus on Saturday.

Wow, this Democratic battle for the nomination is getting nastier by the minute.

It does seem strange that this lawsuit was filed after Hillary's opponent Obama secured the endorsement of the culinary union whose caucuses are being challenged.

It is also not very strange that hubby Bill supports the legal effort against the culinary workers caucuses.

How ugly will it get? It is only January.....

The Clinton's are hands down some of the nastiest political dirtbags either side has known. How anybody can trust them is beyond me. They have left a trail of graft, corruption, and yes dead bodies (Just ask the ghosts of Vince Foster and Ron Brown). How anybody could vote for her is beyond me.

We will have to see what comes of this current suit, if it follows the same path as today's court rulings the culinary union will lose their ability to vote in the Nevada primary.

It has come to the point where you evaluate a case and come to a conclusion that seems fair, then do a 180 and you arrive at the court's decision.

I thought this was the US.....


What Happened?

Hearing 17JAN08

A hearing has been set for Thursday the 17th of January.


www.washingtonpost.com

A federal judge set a hearing for tomorrow to help determine the legitimacy of the use of Las Vegas casinos as sites for the Nevada Democratic caucuses, just two days before delegates are selected in the increasingly heated battle between Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) and Barack Obama (Ill.).

Established to allow thousands of casino employees working Saturday to participate, the hotel-based caucus precincts have become enmeshed in legal and political controversy ahead of the first balloting in the nominating process that is expected to include a large percentage of Latinos.

Judge Denies Challenge to Nevada Democratic Caucuses

Good for you Judge Mahan, It looks like the Clinton campaign supporters' attempt to change the caucus, filed after Obama secured the endorsement of the culinary union has failed...


Court: Casino Caucuses Allowed

A federal judge in Las Vegas brushed aside a lawsuit trying to shut down nine casino precinct sites for the Nevada Democratic caucuses, handing an important victory to Sen. Barack Obama's bid in the Silver State Saturday.

U.S. District Judge James C. Mahan rejected the argument from a state teachers' union that participants in the at large casino precincts would be a "preferred class of voters" based on the delegates awarded at those sites vs. other neighborhood-based precincts. Mahan, siding with lawyers for the Democratic National Committee, said federal law "recognizes the parties have the right to determine how to apportion delegates," according to the Las Vegas Sun.
