    Will the endorsement of a political money operation play into Sanders' hands?

    (excerpt)

    ........“I want to make it clear there’s a clear distinction between the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus PAC,” Lee said. “We actually have a Republican in the Congressional Black Caucus. I don’t want the viewers, your viewers, to believe that the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus PAC are one and the same.”

    The decision did not come without two abstentions on the PAC’s 20-member board, TheIntercept.com
    reported, adding the board “includes 11 lobbyists, seven elected officials, and two officials who work for the PAC.”

    Some of board’s corporate lobbyists have clients in industries that have been attacked by Sanders in the campaign. Intercept cited
    “Daron Watts, a lobbyist for Purdue Pharma, the makers of highly addictive opioid OxyContin; Mike Mckay and Chaka Burgess, both lobbyists for Navient, the student loan giant that was spun off of Sallie Mae; former Rep. Al Wynn, D-Md., a lobbyist who represents a range of clients, including work last year on behalf of Lorillard Tobacco, the makers of Newport cigarettes; and William A. Kirk, who lobbies for a cigar industry trade group on a range of tobacco regulations.”

    Something smells’: Top Iowa paper calls for ‘complete audit’ of Clinton’s win over Sanders



    A Iowa newspaper is calling for a “complete audit” of the state’s Democratic caucuses to sniff out “even the whiff of impropriety or error.”

    The Des Moines Register‘s editorial board called for state officials to closely examine Hillary Clinton’s razor-thin margin of victory over Bernie Sanders in Monday’s caucuses, reported The Hill.
