Obama Campaign Wants Disenfranchisement

State Sen. Tupac Hunter, D-Detroit, said a mail-in caucus "is clearly the wrong path.
"We don't like it one bit," Hunter said. "It disenfranchises people who need to participate and there are many questions with regard to security."
Hunter said the Obama campaign will accept nothing but a 50-50 split of Michigan delegates between Clinton and Obama, who removed his name from the January ballot here in protest of the early date.
Hmm... if that doesnt smell like disenfranchisement, then I do not know what does.
I can understand objections to a mail in vote, but 50/50? Come on. Is Obama's camp feeling the heat because a mail in will allow more people to vote than a caucus will?
