On Saturday, during in an appearance on WSUM 91.7, the University of Wisconsins student radio station located in Madison, Darcy Richardson encouraged his supporters in neighboring Iowa to come out and caucus for the Occupy Iowa and Healthcare NOT Warfare efforts to elect a slate of progressive, uncommitted delegates in this Tuesdays caucuses.
Ive been encouraging my supporters in Iowa to join with the Occupy Iowa and Healthcare Not Warfare organizations in sending the strongest possible message to the Obama administration, Richardson told the listening audience. Supporting an uncommitted slate in Iowa gives progressives the best chance to make their voices heard because of the unique procedural rules employed by Iowa Democrats. Even then, he cautioned, its still entirely possible that the Iowa Democratic Party will refuse to report any results indicating opposition to President Obamas renomination.
Former state legislator Ed Fallon is organizing the Occupy the Caucuses group, while University of Iowa professor Jeffrey Cox has been spearheading the Iowa Healthcare NOT Warfare group.
Darcy Richardson has qualified for the ballot in New Hampshire, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. Efforts are underway to secure ballot access in another half-dozen primary and caucus states.
And possibly while some play spoiler and cross party to vote for Ron Paul, others will be supporting uncommitted, could be interesting to see if it has legs.
Both supporters or his jock-strap?
