Hillary cannot have the 'high ground' after NV, after total silence on AZ and MA.

Lawsuits in both states and crickets from Hillary.

This is not Bernie, when Hillary's delegates don't show up.

2. You got it!

It is patently obvious that our democracy is at a minimum broken, possibly criminally hacked. All our candidates need to be out front demanding that it be fixed, regardless of whom was benefitted.

3. No one employing David Brock as a surrogate can claim the high ground. Sewers run underground.

7. lol How do we know you are not from right wing troll website employing

a deception to harass liberals?

You seem to have nothing bad to say against conservatives in either party.

Your over the top attack means you didn't even read the post. Or you are a python script just generating thoughtless posts by web scraping.

Signed,

p.s. Authoritarianism is a really bad look for a Democrat

6. As Hillary Clinton Pitches Voting Rights On The Trail, Her Counsel Looks To Fight For Them in Court

Marc Elias, the chief counsel for the Clinton Victory Counsel program, is busy suing the GOP and fighting GOP vote suppression http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/06/16/voting-rights-lawsuits-_n_7594960.html

The general counsel for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clintonís campaign is heading up three high-profile lawsuits against Republican-backed voting restrictions in what is shaping up to be a perfect political and legal storm leading up to the 2016 election.

The attorney, Marc Elias, is involved in lawsuits challenging measures passed in Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin, arguing that laws cutting back early voting, restricting registration and requiring photo identification to vote, among other measures, disproportionately impact racial minorities.

Conservatives have argued such measures protect against voter fraud, and have called the lawsuits a political effort to energize Democratic voters. The financial involvement of the billionaire liberal philanthropist George Soros, who is supporting the suits, has only incensed them further.

There are high stakes to the lawsuits, as the Supreme Court displayed a certain skepticism about federal voting rights legislation when it struck down a key section of the landmark Voting Rights Act in 2013. That provision had required states and localities with a history of voting discrimination to first clear any changes to their voting laws with the federal government or in federal court. The VRA still bars voting procedures that discriminate against racial minorities, but the strength of that section hasnít been tested since the courtís controversial decision two years ago.

So, while the politics of Eliasí cases have attracted most of the attention ó Clinton recently decried measures supported by Republican governors, like fellow presidential hopeful Scott Walker of Wisconsin ó there is an equivalent amount of intrigue on the legal side. Some of the provisions targeted in the lawsuits, like Wisconsinís voter identification law, have already been challenged, while others, like Virginiaís photo ID law, havenít yet seen the inside of a courtroom.

The GOP is very good at voter suppression and I am glad that Marc is fighting against the GOP. Unfortunately, the Wisconsin voer id law will be in effect for Tuesday primary.
