by Nevada Democrats

Las Vegas, NVNevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement on reports Republicans may violate the integrity of the caucus process:

“After reviewing Nevada law, we believe that registering under false pretenses in order to participate in the Democratic caucuses for purposes of manipulating the presidential nominating process is a felony.  The Nevada State Democratic Party will work with law enforcement to prosecute anyone who falsely registers as a Democrat to caucus tomorrow and subsequently participates in the Republican caucuses on Tuesday.”
