Howard Dean insists on violating the Voting Rights Act

Now Howard Dean from up in D.C. insists on disenfranchising Florida Democrat party voters, but denies it is a violation of the Voting Rights Act so he can go ahead and do it.
Dean, DNC answer Sen. Nelson's lawsuit

The Democratic National Committee today asked a federal judge to dismiss U.S. Sen. Bill nelson's lawsuit seeking to force recognition of the Florida presidential primary and seating of state delegates to the national nominating convention next summer.

DNC Chairman Howard Dean said the party is not a state entity, so it is not violating the Voting Rights Act...

Even if voters are disenfranchised by party rules, Dean's attorneys argue, the state party could remedy the situation by holding caucuses after the Jan. 29 primary to choose delegates.
Man, if that isn't arrogance, what is?

Bait and switch is ON. Take away the vote, then tell the people you rip off to organize a caucus. What the heck is a caucus, anyway? Well, one thing is for sure: it ain't a vote in an election. And the handy part if you're Howard Dean is that you have lawyers arguing it is all perfectly legal, just like the used car salesman.
