sexual tension

Word has it that there was some drama in the selection of the delegates to the national convention in district 31. The district was able to select one Obama delegate and one Clinton delegate, and the rules required that one be male and one be female. The chair of the Clinton caucus was advised by a district chair that a coin toss should determine which caucus got which.

A couple of sources have stated that most of the Clinton caucus had agreed to vote for a specific potential delegate...who happened to be male. When the coin flip ruled that the Clinton caucus must nominate a woman, there were suddenly several potential delegates. The caucus decided on one, but the men felt disenfranchised.

Panhandle Truth Squad has learned that the men in the Clinton caucus from District 31 have already filed a complaint to the credentials committee. Although the men admit that the possible remedies for this situation are extremely limited at this point, apparently some of the men were pretty upset about the situation and the complaint will be filed.
