Subverting the MoveOn Primary?

Benedict Spinoza points to some evidence that a few right wingers are intending to sabotage this coming Tuesday's primary.

He notes, "The attempt is at least in part the brainchild of Jimmy Moore on the right wing Common Voice website. His plan is to enlist fellow Republicans to join MoveOn and then cast a vote for Al Sharpton, hoping to force that organization to then have to endorse Mr. Sharpton's candidacy."

Presumably, if MoveOn had to support Sharpton, these right wingers think that its campaign work would then be politically discredited.
