Andrew Yang sues over the cancellation of NY Democrat primary

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang is suing the New York State Board of Elections over their decision to cancel the Democratic presidential primary.

Nothing like seeing the Democrats get their knickers in a knot. If New York is anything like our state, there are numerous other candidates on the primary ballot as well as “questions” to be approved or disapproved. How about the opportunity for “write in” candidates? No doubt removal of Sanders name would take the starch out of Sanders voters and “suppress the turnout”…….. smile here..  🙂 This will not cancel the primary itself.

Then what happens to his delegates?  Therein lies the mystery and and intrigue begins as many wonder if and when the democrats will dump Biden.

The canceling of the primary – which was originally scheduled to be held Tuesday before being postponed to June 23 — complicates the delegate selection process as there were 274 convention delegates at stake in New York’s primary. While it’s clear Biden’s the presumptive nominee, there are other things — like party platform and rules –that delegates vote on at conventions.

“Any substantive change to a state’s first determining step in allocating delegates like this one will need to be reviewed by the DNC’s Rules and By-Laws Committee,” David Bergstein, a Democratic National Committee spokesman, told Fox News. “Once the state party submits an updated selection plan on how they plan on allocating delegates, the committee will look at that plan and make a determination.”

The lawsuit, filed on Monday, argues that Yang should be kept on the ballot as he has met all the requirements and did not ask to be removed. Yang and seven other New Yorkers who filed to serve the former candidate as delegates to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) are the plaintiffs of the suit, as well as Jonathan Herzog, a longshot contender running against Democratic New York Congressman Jerry Nadler.

Yang’s removal “denies voters due process and denies voters the right to vote, and therefore must be invalidated removing the authority for the Defendant to take the actions complained of herein,” they wrote in the suit, first reported by Politico.

Yang criticized New York’s presidential primary cancelation in the lawsuit. It would be “suppressing voter turnout as voters will have less incentive to vote if they cannot cast a vote for the highest office in the land, and thereby negatively impact challenger candidates,” he wrote.

Sanders’ campaign has also condemned the decision and called for it to be overturned.

Meanwhile Biden is being held hostage by his wife, yes, I can see why Sanders wants to hang on to his delegates.

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.
