Sounds like he needs to SPLAIN some things to his campaign.


Bad news, everybody, but the Bernie Sanders campaign seems to be doing dirty tricks. Stop doing dirty tricks, Bernie Sanders campaign!

Operatives from Bernie Sanders' campaign have donned Culinary union pins and secured access to employee areas inside Strip hotels to try to garner votes for the Feb. 20 caucus, sources confirm.

Culinary officials have been made aware of the faux union workers at four hotels -- The Rio, Paris, The Mirage and Planet Hollywood. The Sanders campaigners are wearing the distinctive yellow Local 226 pins, implying they are union members, to gain access to employee dining rooms.

That is ... not good. For Bernie staffers to deceive union workers by basically COSPLAYING AS THEM is highly, highly OMG HIGHLY unethical, under any circumstances, and the union is NOT happy about it at all:

We can confirm multiple reports of Bernie Sanders’ campaign staffers attempting and gaining access to Employee Dining Rooms at Las Vegas Strip properties where over 57,000 members that we represent work.

We are disappointed and offended. It's completely inappropriate for any campaign to attempt to mislead Culinary Union members, especially at their place of work.

The Culinary Union button that hundreds of thousands of union members have proudly worn to work every day represents 80 years of struggle and fighting for justice. We strongly condemn anyone falsifying their affiliation with the Culinary Union in order to gain access to properties and we will cooperate with casinos and hotels so that this matter is fully resolved.

No bueno, Bernie!

The Culinary Union has been very specific about how it has not endorsed either Hillary Clinton OR Bernie Sanders, by the way. The union DID endorse (Barack Obama) in 2008, and the ensuing battle was bloody. The Clinton campaign was accused of trying to suppress the Latino vote by filing a lawsuit to stop the union from caucusing inside casinos (where all those union members work). Meanwhile, the Clinton campaign stuck its nose inside the casinos to try to peel Obama-supporting union workers away, which was Not Allowed, and ugh, it was just bad.

It's gross when 2008 Hillary does it, and it's gross when 2016 Bernie does it, is the point.

Come on, guys. We know this is a competitive primary and people on both sides feel very strongly about their candidates. But one of the ways Democrats are supposed to be better than Republicans is that they're supposed to be more honest.

[contextly_sidebar id="oTdsWTYtDYacD7kV3H8sseyUd3VPGZfW"]We are certain the Sanders campaign is going to make heads roll over this, just like when they decided to "help" the DNC by snooping around in Hillary Clinton's voter database. Right?

Because we genuinely like BOTH candidates (Martin O'Malley, you do not exist) and we'd like this primary to remain focused on the important issues, like Bernie being a dirty communist and Hillary doing war-ghazi with Wall Street on her emails.

The mass murders at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, and at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, are still killing people. Two survivors of Parkland killed themselves in the past week, and this morning, the body of the father of one of the Sandy Hook children was found in Newtown. And something like 35,800 guns will be sold today, if 2019 stats are comparable to 2018 sales figures. But cheer up -- without Barack Obama scaring everyone with his promise to take all the guns, that's down 16 percent from the highest gun sales in history in 2016. Then again, despite the lower gun sales, there were nearly 40,000 deaths caused with firearms in 2018. It was the third record year in a row. We're Number One.

The news has been just horrifying. On March 17, Sydney Aiello, 19, who'd been on campus at Stoneman Douglas the day of the 2018 massacre, killed herself. She'd been a close friend of one of the girls who died in the shooting, and had been diagnosed with PTSD, according to her mother. She had started college but found it hard to just to sit in classrooms because of her fears that a gunman might burst in. Then, this weekend, another Stoneman Douglas student, a male sophomore, as yet unidentified, killed himself -- like Ms. Aiello, with a gun.

Today, police in Newtown found the body of Jeremy Richman, a neuropharmacologist and the father of Avielle Richman, who was only 6 years old when she was one of the 20 children and six adults murdered at Sandy Hook in 2012. Richman and his wife, Jennifer Hensel, had founded a nonprofit to research the neurological problems that might lead to violent behavior. The foundation had an office in the complex where Richman's body was found. The couple were also among the Sandy Hook parents suing Alex Jones for spreading the false conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook massacre was faked as part of a plot to take all the precious guns away.
