Explicit Pressure

Usually the pressure is more subtle, but with Clinton on her last half of a leg things can get more overt.

Harvey Weinstein, the prominent movie producer and Democratic fundraiser, unleashed his legendary temper in a tirade aimed at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Weinstein, who’s backing Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, threatened to cut off the cash flow to Democratic congressional candidates if Pelosi does not get behind a proposal to fund do-over primaries in Michigan and Florida, CNN reports. Clinton’s diminishing chances to snag the Democratic nomination are essentially dependent on seating delegates from those states at this summer’s convention.

Just another day in American politics.
