While the media focuses on the supposed “race-card” battle between the candidates (the latest, sexy narrative….and, despite the fact that it’s been entirely Clinton supporters involved — rather than her campaign — and Obama only responding, it’s portrayed in the media as somehow both candidates fault for “dirty politics.”)….keep your eye on the things that are actually happening.
Remember when Clinton complained that the caucus process in Iowa disenfranchised voters who “worked at night”, etc.?
Well, isn’t it funny that the Nevada State Teachers Union (who have endorsed Clinton) has filed a lawsuit to block the Nevada law that creates “at-large” precincts inside nine Las Vegas resorts on caucus day — created primarily so that casino and resort employees have a place to have their vote counted.
Entirely coincidental, I’m sure, that the lawsuit was filed two days after the 60,000-member Culinary Workers Union, whose members work (and would caucus) at those sites, endorsed Obama.
I guess the caucus process is only unfair if it means that you lose. Then it’s OK to disenfranchise voters.
