The Democrats are undermining Bernie Sanders’ campaign to help Hillary Clinton? Shocking news?
A nasty dispute between the Democratic National Committee and Bernie Sanders’ campaign deepened on Friday, as the campaign lashed out at party leaders for blocking its access to voter data – a move done in retaliation for allegedly spying on Hillary Clinton campaign files.
“The leadership of the Democratic National Committee is now actively attempting to undermine our campaign,” Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver said at a press conference Friday afternoon. “This is unacceptable.”
The Washington Post first reported late Thursday that the Sanders camp acknowledged a low-level staffer viewed Clinton campaign voter data and was fired as a result. The DNC, in response, blocked Sanders campaign access to the party’s master list of likely Democratic voters until it provides a full explanation.
