Nevada Politics Explodes

shutterstock_153445907It is not politics as usual in Nevada. The usually peaceful Democratic Convention digressed into mob violence this past weekend. At this point the headquarters of the Democratic Party is closed. The violence started when supporters of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders started to protest.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal:

The convention is over, but the wider battle for order continues within the Nevada State Democratic Party. It’s playing out not in the shuttered headquarters, but on social media, where some Sanders backers relentlessly criticize and insult state party Chairwoman Roberta Lange. The outcry turned ugly over the weekend, when Lange’s cell number was posted online and she received death threats.

It’s early in the Presidential race and things are heating up all over especially here in Nevada. Read the full story here.
