AP reports that a heated exchange between former President Clinton and KGO ABC7 reporter Mark Mathews is circulating on the Internet. (Here's raw video.) During a campaign stop for his wife in Oakland Wednesday, Clinton became visibly annoyed when Mathews asked him whether Sen. Clinton's campaign should take a stronger stand against a union's lawsuit to keep casino workers from caucusing at special precincts in Nevada.
"I had nothing to do with that lawsuit and you know it," said Bill Clinton, jabbing a finger at Mathews. "Get on your television station and say, 'I don't care about the home mortgage crisis."
A federal judge threw out the lawsuit yesterday. A union with ties to Hillary Clinton had tried to prevent casino workers from caucusing at special precincts on the Las Vegas strip.
