Today’s WikiLeaks dump of over 19,000 emails from the Democratic National Committee has vindicated a longstanding complaint of Bernie Sanders — that the DNC actively worked against him and his campaign against Hillary Clinton.
In one email, dated May 5, 2016, DNC Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall suggested emphasizing Sanders’ atheism, as the information would damage his image with Southern Baptists.
It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.
In another email, to DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda, Democrat national press secretary Mark Paustenbach suggested that the DNC could craft a good “Bernie narrative” about how the Vermont Senator’s campaign was “a mess.”
Wondering if there’s a good Bernie narrative for a story, which is that Bernie never ever had his act together, that his campaign was “a mess.”
Specifically, DWS had to call Bernie directly in order to get the campaign to do things because they’d either ignored or forgotten to something critical.She had to call Bernie after the data breach to make his staff to respond to our concerns. Even then they didn’t get back to us, which is why we had to shut off their access in order to get them to finally let us know exactly how they snooped around HFA’s data.Same was true with the standing committee appointments. They never got back to us with their names (HFA and even O’Malley got there’s in six weeks earlier) for the committees. So, again, the chair had to call Bernie personally for his staff to finally get us critical information.So, they gave us an awful list just a few days before we had to make the announcements. It’s not a DNC conspiracy, it’s because they never had their act together.
These leaks are sure to anger supporters of Sanders, who long supported the Senator’s allegations that the DNC establishment was biased against him. It is likely to deepen disappointment among Sanders supporters at the candidate’s recent endorsement of Hillary Clinton.
