chase martyn (on display): Florida GOP Screwing Democrats -- and Iowa

Excerpted from this post at chase martyn (on display)

The Florida Democratic Party just can't catch a break. First, Florida's GOP-controlled legislature passed a bill to move the state's primary to January 29, 2008, in violation of agreed-upon national political party rules. The Democratic National Committee then announced that if Florida went ahead with its plans, it would be stripped of its delegates to the DNC... Florida Democrats opposed the move from the moment they heard the DNC's threats (at least superficially), but the state GOP once again forced their hand by getting a constitutional referendum lowering property taxes onto the January 29 ballot. Moving the Democratic nominating contest to a different date would result in lower Democratic turnout on January 29
