Florida Dems Abandon Mail-In Revote Option

Can't do it on the cheap. Don't got no $12MM for a new primary vote.

What to do, what to do?

Find a tool to claim "disenfranchisement" and take it to court!

The suit was filed in August in Tampa on behalf of Floridian Victor DiMaio. It claims the DNC violated his constitutional rights when it stripped Florida's Democratic Party of all 210 of its delegates to the convention as punishment for holding its Jan. 29 presidential primary earlier than DNC rules allow.

The suit was rejected at the district court level in Tampa, but the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta has agreed to hear the case.

I'm no constitutional lawyer, nor do I play one on television, but what constitutionally protected right was violated here? Goofy as the DNC primary system might be (Sooooper-delegates!), they certainly have the right to set the rules by which the candidate that represents their party is selected.

Even if those rules put a long-legged Mack Daddy on the ballot.
