“Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won’t be getting to the Greek during his presidential campaign’s final swing through California.
Sanders was scheduled to hold a Saturday concert at Los Angeles’ famed Greek Theater, but on the day before the event, his campaign sent an email to supporters saying they were forced to change venues. The Sanders campaign’s email attributed the switch to intervention from a local politician.
“Unfortunately, after reaching terms with the professional staff at the Greek to host our rally, interference from a local Los Angeles City Council member forced us to move from this iconic venue,” the email said.
The council member was not named in the message, but a Sanders campaign source said it was David Ryu, a Democrat whose district includes the theater. Ryu is a supporter of Sanders’ Democratic primary rival, Hillary Clinton. In the email announcing the venue change, the Sanders campaign noted that Clinton had “scheduled an identical event” at the Greek Theater next week and “no objection has been raised.
“I will tell you that in every state that we have gone into, we have taken on the entire Democratic establishment,” Sanders said. “It’s not surprising to me that, you know, we will have the Democratic establishment supporting Hillary Clinton.”
Yup…Same ol B.S.
