Bernie Sanders Sues Democrat Party

Posted on | December 19, 2015 | 15 Comments


Allegations of favoritism:

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) campaign sued the Democratic National Committee in federal court Friday evening following the suspension of his campaign from the DNC’s voter database after a security breach.
The suit claims that the campaign is losing $600,000 in donations each day that it does not have access to the data, and adds that the “damage to the campaign’s political viability as a result of being unable to communicate with constituents and voters, is far more severe, and incapable of measurement.”
The DNC barred Sanders from accessing the party’s voter file, which includes much of his campaign’s voter data, after a campaign staffer improperly accessed private data belonging to front-runner Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The vendor hired by the party to maintain the data accidentally created the security vulnerability during an update, the DNC says.
The Sanders campaign fired a supervisory staffer involved in the incident and has gone on the warpath Friday claiming that the DNC overreacted and is trying to aid Clinton’s campaign.

The question occurs: Why are rival Democrat campaigns both sharing the same database? But the finger-point goes both ways:

Brian Fallon, a Clinton campaign spokesman, called into CNN tonight, very angry about the reported 24 separate intrusions by the Sanders campaign. He said this was a clear “act of theft, stealing data from the Clinton campaign,” and Sanders isn’t living up to that “different kind of campaign” he promised.
“They were very productive,” Fallon told Wolf Blitzer. “They were like kids in a candy store, Wolf. They had about 40 minutes where they ran wild.”

The Democrat Party is a gang of thieves, organized to screw over taxpayers, but always willing to screw over each other, too. Somebody should write a book . . . Oh, wait . . .

    I know where the “anyone but Hillary” crowd is coming from but isn’t Bernie Sanders, who’s openly favors the theft & slavery of Socialism, even worse?

    1) I don’t believe this is real.
    2) It doesn’t matter if it is real or not: Bernie signaled surrender when he gave Hillary a pass on her emails.
    3) The Dem side of the debates are a farce; only slightly less so now that it’s been whittled down to Hillary and her two training wheels.

    Meh – as long as they’re busy eating each other, they’re not eating me.

    I thought he was going to use it for his bow out. I guess not.

    Hey, why should the Republicans be the only party that regularly forms circular firing squads?

    Moe Lane is predicting that Old Man Sanders will be a pussy at the debate when it comes to attacking Hillary. This is just drama theater. Still, I hope it’s more than that.

    Bernie reminds me of Fredo Corleone. Convinced that he’s smart, that he has good ideas, that he should have a larger role. Consequently it infuriates him when the DNC establishment nods politely, pats him on the head, and sends him back to the kiddies’ table.

    I think they rely on Bernie to keep Hillary “honest.”

    And they do not mean by that word what you think it means. It means reliably in bed with the big money while spouting the approved platitudes and shoveling cash and influence to the approved groups.

    Bernie’s a loose cannon. There’s every danger that he means what he says and will try to act on it.

    Just to clarify, by “worse” I mean the way that poop is worse than puke “worse.”

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Hillary were bankrolling at least O’Malley to stay in so it looks legit. Bernie has his own money from gullible followers, and Hillary is too much of a skinflint to bankroll him.
