Nevada voters in Clark County's Precinct 3361 say the captain called Bernie Sanders a “socialist Jew” in an attempt to garner support for Hillary Clinton, according to a video posted Sunday.

In the video, a Sanders supporter and volunteer named Brian (whose last name was obscured) drove 4 hours from California to observe and film the southern Nevada caucus on February 20th. When he started to speak about his support for Sanders, wearing a “Bernie for the Future” T-shirt, Hillary supporters booed and shouted him down.

Woodbourne, N.Y. — Summer comes to the Catskills like Creation itself, each day a revelation: The Neversink River flows to waterfalls. A moon rises over ice caves. There are salamanders in the grass, bears in the forest, a bald eagle in the sky. In the Sullivan County hamlet of Callicoon, just prior to the solstice, farmers parade 260 tractors. One trucker for Balford Farms, driving along the Delaware River on a June morning, spied a wounded bald eagle in a ditch, saving its life.
