Randy Levine started our day with an interview in which he claimed that Yankee Stadium did not get any public subsidies even though it got TONS of public subsidies. Like, hundreds of millions of dollars.
We end the afternoon with a link to an editorial he wrote for NewsMax railing against proposed changes to the delegate procedures at the Republican National Convention. It’s an editorial that, in essence, argues that the GOP is trying to rob Donald Trump of the nomination.
And, to be fair to Levine — who has a long history and a lot of experience in Republican politics — he’s probably right. I don’t really care about what goes on internally in the Republican Party, but it does seem like whatever is happening there is aimed at doing harm to the guy who has gotten more votes and won more primaries than anyone. To be clear, ALL of these sorts of rules, in both the Democratic and Republican party are written like this to support and help the candidates preferred by the party establishment. Hillary Clinton, while she also happens to have gotten far more votes than Bernie Sanders, is nonetheless getting a greater boost in delegates than some are pleased with due to some rules set by the party.
Still, even if Levine has a valid point, at the end of the day, he’s carrying a brief for Donald Trump. And that can’t feel particularly fulfilling, can it?
