AP: The Wisconsin Democratic Party is trying to strip a woman of her position as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention. That’s after she told a newspaper she would vote for Republican Senator John McCain for president in November.

…When Clinton bowed out of the race last weekend, she urged her supporters to do all they can to elect Obama. But Bartoshevich told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Clinton was treated unfairly by the party and she has deep reservations about Obama’s experience, so she’ll vote for McCain.The report caused quite a stir at the state Democratic convention. The party members voted to ask the national party’s credentials committee to refuse to seat her at the convention.

The superdelegate flood for presumptive Democratic Party nominee Barack Obama continues:
