Nevada Democrat Teachers Do Not Want To Count Every Vote

Via Memeorandum

Nevada’s state teachers union and six Las Vegas area residents filed a lawsuit late Friday that could make it harder for many members of the state’s huge hotel workers union to vote in the hotly contested Jan. 19 Democratic caucus in Nevada.

The 13-page lawsuit in federal district court here comes two days after the 60,000-member Culinary Workers Union Local 226 in Nevada endorsed Senator Barack Obama, a blow to Mrs. Clinton. Mr. Obama addressed the Culinary Union at their hall earlier Friday.

The lawsuit argues that the Nevada Democratic Party’s decision, decided late last year, to create at-large precincts inside nine Las Vegas resorts on caucus day violates the state’s election laws and creates a system in which voters at the at-large precincts can elect more delegates than voters at other precincts. The lawsuit employs a complex mathematical formula to show that voters at the other 1,754 precincts would have less influence with their votes.

Sounds more like Democrat whining and a violation of their  “count every vote” mantra bullshit. But requiring picture ID to make it harder for people to vote illegally is strictly off the table with the progressive crowd.

Karl at Protein Wisdom: Clinton has long maintained that the caucus system disenfranchises certain types of voters.   But altering the status quo in Nevada may be seen by others as an act of disenfranchisement also — and one from which Clinton may not be able to credibly distance herself.

Jeralyn at Talk Left: Which leaves the question, should one group of workers be given special voting privileges just because there are so many of them?

I don’t have an answer, but it does seem there is a problem.

Good point, but, if they were so worried about it being fair, they should have filed suit long ago.
