This week two Democrats in Florida filed a lawsuit aimed at keeping Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., from being listed on the state’s presidential primary ballot.

Registered Democrats Frank Bach and George Brown argue in their lawsuit that Sanders cannot be allowed on the ballot because he is a registered independent, not a Democrat, pointing out that he has also raised campaign funding as an independent. Sanders does caucus with Democrats in the Senate, however.

Former circuit court judge Karen Givers is representing the two plaintiffs. Speaking with Politico, Givers argued that “Florida is a closed primary state, yet here we have someone who is an independent on the Democratic ballot. You can’t be an independent and be a member of the party.”

Givers said that Bach and Brown are military veterans registered as Democrats.

Looks like Bernie will have to run his campaign in 49 states conceding Florida to Trump, no contest.

Stupid. Not sure anyone has the legal standing to successfully bring such a suit.

Expect more shenanigans from the D Party and MSM, if Sanders continues to win. They don’t want a progressive candidate. They want another corporatist warmonger like Ears and Her.

Sadly, I agree with occupied on this one. It is a frivolous lawsuit brought for by moderate Democrats to make a political statement. It will be tossed.

Yeah it's kind of sad that the first serious candidate that actually stands for what the democratic party says it does is getting so much resistance from the party.

Just proves once again, both criminal parties are very much alike. Both are owned and controlled by the extreme wealthy. Bernie threatens this lucrative arrangement.

They don’t want the public getting a real choice for potus.

Americans have always lived in a plutocracy. It seems way too many think that's how it is supposed to be.

So true. Proof state controlled propaganda works.

I'm way too cynical to believe Bernie can change the American people's laziness when it comes to politics. Everyone is looking for a hero to fix things for them.

Oh I’m skeptical too. Always skeptical. However with Bernie there’s a chance change can occur. With Donnie, it’s more of the same.
