Despite a commanding win by Hillary, which came despite the all-important Obama endorsement by the Culinary Workers Union and the allowance for voting in casinos, Bill Clinton is claiming to have seen strong-arming by the Culinary Workers Union.
Today when my daughter and I were wandering through the hotel, and all these culinary workers were mobbing us telling us they didn’t care what the union told them to do, they were gonna caucus for Hillary.

There was a representative of the organization following along behind us going up to everybody who said that, saying 'if you’re not gonna vote for our guy were gonna give you a schedule tomorrow so you can’t be there.' So, is this the new politics? I haven’t seen anything like that in America in 35 years. So I will say it again – they think they're better than you.
The Politico is doubtful of the charges and the Culinary Workers Union reps, of course, say nothing untoward happened. But man, ain't it great to see the specters of both union thuggery and racial demagoguery haunt the Democratic race in one week? Serves 'em right after using both of them to their advantage for years.

Also, Bill Clinton is gonna be a joy to watch fume over the next 10 months if Hillary gets the nomination.
