Donald Trump is apparently making good on his threat to sue over the fact that Ted Cruz is getting delegates "unfairly" from Louisiana. Cruz has been working to pick up Marco Rubio's delegates as well as some of the unbound ones, and could come out of the state with an additional 10 over what he gained in the actual vote. He and Trump were tied at 18 delegates with Trump's narrow win, and the short-fingered vulgarian doesn't think the politics of it all are fair, so here come the lawyers.
“Well, the problem we’re having here is that there was a secret meeting in Louisiana of the convention delegation, and apparently all of the invitations for our delegates must have gotten lost in the mail," Trump adviser Barry Bennett told MSNBC's Ari Melber. "There’s a process to deal with this. It’s in the certification process, and it’s been with our legal team for most of the morning now, and we are moving forward with the complaint to decertify these delegates."
Pressed on the conditions of the lawsuit, Bennett stipulated that the document is "not something you file with a court; it’s something you file inside the party, but it’s a decertification so that these delegates and these rules committees committee members and folks don’t get seated.”
The campaign will file a complaint with the Republican National Committee to try to make sure those delegates who have gone over to Cruz's side don't get to actually vote come convention time. That will make the lead-up to the convention a whole lot of fun, not to mention the convention itself! Have fun with that, Reince Priebus. You deserve every minute of it.
