Chaos on the Convention Floor
By Paul Kane
The convention floor has turned into an overstuffed pinata, as staff have told delegates the floor is essentially shut down.
Staff are informing delegates no one else is allowed on the floor, meaning no one will leave the floor and risk losing their place.
Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) had to beg to be allowed to cut across the floor to find the Maryland delegation. “Jesus Christ,” Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) just yelled, denied access to finding the delegates from the first-in-the-nation caucus state.
Police yelled at delegates behind the New York section to move in one direction, only to have security on the other end send them back the way they came.
Hundreds of delegates are cordoned off under the stands, denied entry into the hall.
The confusion comes on the heels of a day’s worth of complaints from delegates and party insiders about a credentialing process run amok.
