It also puts an even more sinister light on the recent coziness between Bill Clinton and Bush senior.
I'll look for a youtube clip or a transcript to post. But WOW.
Another story running parallel to this and making me equally queasy: The Field quotes the Washington Post:
- The Nevada State Education Association, some of whose top leaders have individually endorsed Clinton, filed the suit and is using a law firm with close ties to the onetime front-runner, Kummer, Kaempfer, Bonner, Renshaw, and Ferrario. Former congressmen James H. Bilbray (D-Nev.), a lawyer at that firm, has endorsed Clinton and is stumping for her in the Silver State…
The state party quickly dismissed the lawsuit. Going back to last spring, every presidential campaign was involved in setting up the unusual casino caucus sites while state party officials and the Democratic National Committee ironed out the details. “This is a fair, legal and proper way to choose delegates under established law and legal precedent that has been reviewed by attorneys….The time for comment or complaint has passed,” the party said in a statement.
The union was more blunt, contending the arguments are only a political effort to muddy the waters in case Clinton loses. “It’s strange [the suit] is coming after our endorsement,” said D. Taylor, the secretary-treasurer of the local labor group, told the Washington Post in an interview last night after an Obama rally in his union hall.
