Sharpton threatens lawsuit over FL, MI

Monday, March 10, 2008

Al Sharpton is in Florida and said he is prepared to sue if Florida and Michigan’s delegates are seated as is. He said there are people who didn’t vote because they knew their vote wouldn’t count and “there must be a formula to factor” them in.

“There were many people that did not vote, because the DNC said their vote did not count,” Sharpton said on MSNBC. “Whatever way this is resolved, they must be factored in.”

Sharpton instead called for a re-do of the voting in both states. “There must be a way that people can exercise their right to vote who did not vote.”

Called it “absurd” that Michigan where uncommitted was on the ballot, would get their delegates seated as is.

”If they try to seat as is,” Sharpton said, he and the National Action Network are prepared to file suit.

As we noted in First Read this morning, Sharpton is in Florida to meet with local National Action Network chapters in Orlando, Port St. Lucie and Miami where they will plan to sign up people who will say they didn’t vote because they were “told their vote wouldn’t count. And we’ll do it in Michigan too.”

So it looks like the Reverend has decided to throw his weight behind Mr. Obama after all.

(As if threatening to quit the Democrat party if Mrs. Clinton gets the nomination wasn’t enough.)

And of course this won’t have any affect upon the tax exempt status his non-partisan 501c3 “charity,” the National Action Network.

But what do you think he was promised by the Obama camp?
