The top spokesman in the Hillary Clinton campaign said that they are "worried about" Bernie Sanders, the 73-year-old socialist from Vermont:

One of the great July 4th speeches was delivered by a shy man who played baseball for a living. Lou Gehrig played every day, never took a game off, until he was told, at age 35, that he was dying.

While there's a case the couple violated the state's public accommodation laws, there's little doubt that the fine was excessive and the reasoning for it specious.
