Nurses Union Accuses Hillary Clinton Camp of Foul Play in Nevada

National Nurses United, which supports Bernie Sanders in today's Nevada caucus, has accused the Clinton campaign of trying to deceive caucus-goers by wearing red shirts that say "I'm With Her." The color red is typically associated with Nurses United, the largest Nurses Union in the United States.


Nurses United endorsed Bernie Sanders in August of last year and has been aggressively campaigning for Sanders in the early primary states. It's official twitter account and a spokesperson for the organization tweeted out the accusations this afternoon on Twitter:

Clinton supporters on twitter immediately denied the charges, insisting that the nurses Union did not have a monopoly on the color red on election days. You can see the shirts typically worn by the Nurses Union here and decide for yourself.
