    Democratic plaintiffs sue to get Bernie Sanders disqualified from Florida primary

    Democratic plaintiffs sue to get Bernie Sanders disqualified from Florida primary

    Frank Bach and George Brown, both Democrats registered in Florida, argue state law precludes a candidate not registered as a Democrat from running in the primary.

    “Defendant Sanders is clearly an Independent, and is clearly not a Democrat, by his own definitions,” the lawsuit alleges. “His current ‘day job’ is as a United States Senator and he has consistently, proudly asserted his service in that role as Independent.”
    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.
    Democrats need to realize that "Bernie or Bust" is already a compromise position.

    i thought Sanders was nothing to worry about since, something something Fidel Castro is bad.

    Agreed. The plaintiffs don't have standing to sue, and their argument is based on nonsense anyway.
    Don't believe something just because you want to.

    Re: Democratic plaintiffs sue to get Bernie Sanders disqualified from Florida primary

    The complaint keeps saying "Florida Law" without actually specifying or citing any statutes or case law. My guess is because its unhelpful to them.

    The party gets to decide its list of candidates.

    Statutes & Constitution
    :View Statutes
    :

    Online Sunshine


    (2) By November 30 of the year preceding the presidential preference primary, each political party shall submit to the Secretary of State a list of its presidential candidates to be placed on the presidential preference primary ballot or candidates entitled to have delegates appear on the presidential preference primary ballot. The Secretary of State shall prepare and publish a list of the names of the presidential candidates submitted not later than on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in December of the year preceding the presidential preference primary. The Department of State shall immediately notify each presidential candidate listed by the Secretary of State. Such notification shall be in writing, by registered mail, with return receipt requested.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    And there it is. More whining about the Democratic "establishment."

    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.
