Hispanic FL Republicans Sued Reince Priebus!



I just like saying "Reince Priebus."

But did you know a Florida Hispanic GOP group sued National GOP Chair Reince "twice and repeat" Priebus for reducing Florida's GOP delegate count in response to moving up the FL GOP primary?

Neither did I:
Appellants brought this action for declaratory and injunctive relief on the ground that the RNC’s delegate-reduction penalty violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution, as well as 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and Section Two of the Voting Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1973.2 Appellants allege that the RNC’s rules “underenfranchise[]” Hispanic Republican voters, because they allow early voting states—namely, Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada— with comparatively small percentages of Republican Hispanic voters to skew the debate toward the interests of those states’ dominant demographics. As a result of the influence the RNC’s rules bestow on those states, Appellants contend that presidential candidates adopt positions contrary to those of Hispanic voters.
Naah, the GOP just loves Hispanic voters!

But alas, just like Priebus' cerebral cortex that night at the convention, the case was dead in its tracks:
In sum, because Appellants have not shown RNC is a state actor, the district court did not err in dismissing their complaint for failure to state a cause of action. Therefore, we affirm the district court’s grant of Preibus’s Rule 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim.
Unleash the Rubio!
