Response to nadinbrzezinski (Reply #45)

54. I've never heard of a caucus that wasn't staffed by fully volunteers.

Each and every person having a candidate in mind as they volunteer and participating in the process fully.

I've never heard of translators hired (who were "politically neutral" or ASL translators hired or anything like that.

It's always been in my experience a purely volunteer driven affair, largely by people attending the caucus.

The moderator was fully within his power to invite the first person down to the stage to translate. The only failure of the moderator was his mishandling the event, allowing the mob to shut down the translation action. They could have stayed up another hour discussing who would get to translate. Hell, if I was that moderator, I would've tabled a poll on whether or not Huerta was "neutral enough" to translate in a room full of bilingual people.

Guarantee you that would've gone a completely different way.
