Any comment, Senator Clinton?
Update A pro-Clinton reader writes:
Why is it always assumed that anything supporters of a candidate do
is the candidate acting through them as surrogates?
Meanwhile, various commenters on Daily Kos are fervently denying that the lawsuit is linked to the Clinton campaign.
The suit was filed on behalf of the Nevada Education Association, which has made no formal endorsement in the race. The Deputy Executive Director of the Association, Debbie Cahill, is a founding member of Hillary Clinton’s “Nevada Women’s Leadership Council.” Cahill, before becoming Deputy ED, was the union’s Director of Government Relations.
Even if this lawsuit wasn’t invented at Clinton HQ, it’s hard to believe that a phone call from the candidate turn it off? If HRC can’t lead her own followers, how can she lead the country?
Another claim made by the Clintonites is that the allocation formula was changed at the last minute to favor the Culinary Workers, and that the suit was filed in reaction to that last-minute change. In fact, the formula was approved in early November. Obama got the Culinary Workers’ endorsement on Wednesday. The suit was filed on Friday. Any questions?
