Voting on the Strip a no-no, suit says

A lawsuit filed late Friday in federal court seeks to stop the Democratic Party from holding caucus meetings at nine Strip hotels, which would diminish the influence of casino workers and hamper Illinois Sen. Barack Obama's campaign.
"This has been a fully transparent process," party spokeswoman Kirsten Searer said. "These rules have been approved by the Democratic National Committee and the campaigns have been fully informed throughout this process, which started in May."
Warne acknowledged that she did not approach the state party about the problem. "We're approaching them now," she said.

Add this to my list of voting shenanigans that need to change (though I'm not sure how you'd do this one) - you can bet that if Clinton had won, they would have stayed conveniently silent, but now it's all outrage because Obama could benefit.  This is nothing against Hillary herself, but just shady tactics.
