BERNIE SANDERS WINS WISCONSIN PRIMARY, ADDS TO MOMENTUM

Bernie Sanders Wins Wisconsin Democratic Primary, Adding to Momentum

By ALAN RAPPORT
APRIL 5, 2016

Senator Bernie Sanders won Wisconsin’s Democratic primary on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press, eating into Hillary Clinton’s delegate lead and extending his recent stretch of victories.

Mr. Sanders still faces an uphill fight for the Democratic nomination, but his message of economic populism continues to resonate with progressive voters.

While Mrs. Clinton was trailing in recent Wisconsin polls, she was working hard for a victory in the state. She now faces an important contest in New York later this month and will be under increased pressure to get her campaign back on track.

There were 96 delegates at stake for Democrats in Wisconsin.

California Lawmakers OK Nation's Highest Minimum Wage

California Lawmakers OK Highest Minimum Wage

Update at 5:38 PM

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The Latest on a proposal to raise California's minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022 (all times local):
2:35 p.m.

California lawmakers have approved the nation's highest statewide minimum wage of $15 an hour to take effect by 2022.

The legislation passed Thursday now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown, who is expected to sign it into law after previously working out the plan with labor unions.

Democrats who control both legislative chambers hailed the increase as a boon to more than 2 million of California's poorest workers and an example to the nation as it struggles with a growing gap between rich and poor.

The Assembly passed SB3 with a 48-26 vote. The Senate followed, 26-12. The increases would start with a boost from $10 to $10.50 on Jan. 1. Businesses with 25 or fewer employees would have an extra year to comply.

LOL

I dreamed last night Birdie Sanders came to visit me, and I couldn't wait to get on DU and tell everyone.

True story.

Nate Silver Defends Torture Methods Used To Make Election Projections

Nate Silver Defends Torture Methods Used To Make Election Projections

NEWS IN BRIEF March 21, 2016
VOL 52 ISSUE 11 · Politics · Election 2016

NEW YORK—Responding to critics who contend that safer and more humane techniques exist to ascertain voters’ political positions, statistician Nate Silver appeared on several cable news programs Monday to defend the controversial torture methods he uses to project election results.

“It’s not easy to accurately forecast how a given state or demographic will vote, and sometimes there is simply no other option than enclosing blindfolded voters in a confinement box and blaring loud, continuous music at them to keep them awake for 100 hours or more,” said Silver, stressing that he had extracted many crucial responses that helped him correctly predict all 50 states’ results during the 2012 general election by shackling registered voters from the ceiling in stress positions until they finally divulged the issues that mattered to them most.

“What you have to understand is that we’re working on a highly time-sensitive schedule and need to get these projections right. So, yes, if stripping a second-generation Latino millennial voter naked, forcing him to stand in his own excrement, and then holding back a snarling German shepherd inches from his throat gives us a clearer understanding of where the nation stands on immigration reform, then that’s a choice I would gladly make every time.”

Silver added that, with the exception of occasionally using pliers to tear out the fingernails of those he suspected of lying to him about their preferred candidate, none of his methods have ever been proven to cause permanent damage.
