Off to Nevada to Oppose Some Political Whores. No, Literally.

Hookers for Hillary line up to caucus and block an old Jewish guy’s hopes.

These are some of my opponents today as I my wife and I head to Nevada.  I’m there to be a legal observer; she’s there to check out the beautiful desert bloom in Death Valley — and to protect me from my antagonists, some of whom are pictured above.  (I’m a legal observer for the Sanders campaig at what I expect will be a large — maybe even huuuuge — caucus.)

Now prostitutes are only a small part of Hillary’s army of supporters here, just as attorneys from OC are an even small portion of Bernie’s.  But if you look at the homepage of their group, HookersForHillary, you’ll notice two things (aside from the photos): (1) they actually have a pretty decent social critique and agenda and (2) their interests will be equally well-represented by Bernie.  In fact, probably better represented, because Bernie will still believe a month, six months, and a year from now what he says now — and has, for the most part, believed for 30 or more years.

So as “political whores” go, I have to admit that these are some of the better ones.  Let’s just say that in recent years in my home county, I’ve seen a lot worse.  (Also a lot less literal.)

Now these particular women are from up in Carson City.  I’m going to a place tody that’s equally famous for its prostitutes — which is why I suppose they weren’t going to send anyone without their better half — and I have to be ready for them to come out and try to influence votes at the Caucus.  So someone has to block that — and I’ll do my best.

More dispatches from Nevada — possibly as emails to Vern, which he can use to update this — as the day goes on!  Also expect some photos of what I hope is already a “superbloom” in Death Valley.

I’ll check in with you soon!  To the ramparts!

About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney. General Counsel of CATER, the Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility, a non-partisan group of people sick of local corruption. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Runs for office sometimes, so far to offer a challenge to someone nasty who would otherwise have run unopposed. Someday he might pick a fight intending to win it rather than just to dent someone. You'll know it when you see it. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. A family member works part-time as a campaign treasurer. He doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he hated. He does advise some local campaigns informally and generally without compensation. If that changes, he will declare the interest. He also runs a less frequently published blog called "The Brean," for his chosen hometown, where he is now fighting with its wealthiest and most avaricious citizen-donors. This just seems to be his way.
