Bernie Sanders Supporter Tries to Place Hillary Clinton Obit in Las Vegas Newspaper

Bernie Sanders supporter Don Schubert attempted to place a Hillary Clinton obit in the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper, prompting a Secret Service alert.

Schubert claimed that the obit attempt was meant to be “political humor.” Only, it’s wasn’t funny in the least.

Las Vegas Review-Journal:  The man, who identified himself as Don Schubert, was asked to leave the newspaper building’s lobby after he filled out a standard obituary form identifying the deceased as Hillary Rodham Clinton, and listing her date of death as Feb. 20, 2016, the date of Saturday’s Democratic Party presidential caucuses. Previously he had called the newsroom to complain about the coin flips that determined the outcome of some Iowa caucuses last month.

The man was seen leaving the RJ parking lot in a maroon Toyota Prius bearing several Bernie Sanders campaign stickers. A security guard said he was also wearing a Sanders sticker on his shirt. The official Sanders campaign website lists “Don Schubert’s House” in Long Beach, Calif., as the site of a volunteer phone bank.

This is just shameful and I am not surprised the Sanders campaign hasn’t said a word.
