Update on Green Party candidate Jeremy Cloward, recently interviewed by Irregular Times: Local TV station KCBS describes 11 candidates participating in a debate in the special election to succeed Ellen Tauscher as California’s 10th district representative in Congress. What the article doesn’t state: Only Democrats and Republicans were allowed to take part in the debate. The four other candidates, including Cloward, showed up but were shut out.
Why? Who concluded that an eleven candidate debate would be manageable, but having fifteen candidates in a debate would be completely out of hand?
