    They appear to be arguing that because only registered Democrats can vote in Florida's primary, therefore only registered Democrats can run in Florida's primary.

    But there is no support for that supposition in the law.

    If you had bothered to even read the story you posted, you would have clearly seen that this lawsuit, which deserves to go nowhere, was raised by just two men. Not by any institution affiliated with the Democratic party.

    Which raises the question about why you are clearly bothered by this nothingburger story.
    To be entirely clear - the Democratic National Committee is listed as a defendant in the suit. These two guys are suing the Democratic party.

    According to the Florida democrat party by laws, theres certainly lots fo room for argument...specifically in regard to party membership for delegate appointment and even declared party status with 365 days of ballot status.

    But sure...some dems are pretty desperate to keep Bernie off the ballot.

    For a reason.

    True, but the OP made the spectacular leap from "two citizens are suing the DNC" to "the DNC is rigged against Sanders." It was paranoia, pure and simple. This story doesn't even deserve the time of day, but because we have people who are looking for conspiracy and rigging in all corners, we have to waste time and effort addressing this **** instead of actually uniting the party. Maybe that is what the OP writer wants.

    Florida Democratic Party bylaws are not enforceable through the courts, but even if they were, I don't see anything here that would prevent Bernie from being on the ballot.

    Especially since they stopped issuing party cards a very long time ago...

    Putting aside the very obvious fact that two Democrat drones are only doing this because the Democrats are trying to once again rig the election against Bernie Sanders, it's like the Democrats are trying to destroy every reason why anyone would bother with the Democratic party in the first place.
    Just curious if we're going to have to listen to Bernie whining about how the party he disclaims when it suits him and joins when it suits him doesn't treat him as a favorite son all the way through the election, or will it end at some point?

    The lawsuit is stupid, but the bottom lie is Bernie isn't a Democrat. He's an "independent" Senator, and filed for reelection in 2024 as an independent, but it suits him to piggy back off the Democratic party infrastructure for Presidential runs, and he's doing that. It's fine with me, but you cannot be shocked that some actual Democrats don't welcome an independent as a member of the party he refuses to join other than in election years, then leaves.

    Fidel Castro is Sander's hero because he provided a literacy program, just like Hitler wasn't all bad because he provided free pre-school childcare.
