Fact-checking claims about the Nevada convention chaos

POLITIFACT (note - this was posted in LBN and deemed off topic)

Sanders supporters loudly protested both during and after the convention, where Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton officially claimed a 20-15 delegate advantage. Sanders supporters have accused the state Democratic Party of various crimes including ignoring attempts to change the rules, rigging the process in favor of Clinton and disqualifying several dozen delegates that supported Sanders.

Campaign manager Jeff Weaver reiterated those concerns during a May 18 interview on CNN.

"There was a horrendous breakdown, where the leadership there in Nevada hijacked the process on the floor, created a tremendous amount of angst among people who were there attending the convention, who were supporters of Sen. Sanders, by ignoring the regular procedure and ramming through what they wanted to do," he said.

PolitiFact Nevada rated Weaver’s claim False. Read the full fact-check for all the details.
