Federal Judge Forces Kucinich On MSNBC

Democrat Dennis Kucinich knows how to get his way. The presidential candidate successfully petitioned a federal judge to get him into MSNBC’s Democratic debate in Nevada tonight.

Charles Thompson, a senior district court judge for Clark County, Nevada, said he would issue an injunction stopping the debate if Mr. Kucinich is excluded.

In a statement, MSNBC responded: “We disagree with the judge’s decision and are filing an appeal.”

The Kucinich campaign said it received an invitation to the debate on Jan. 9, only to have the offer revoked two days later by NBC.

We’re all about the democratic process and equal access, but if Kucinich is so concerned, why didn’t he sue on behalf of his other long shot peers?
