DEMOCRATS IN DISARRAY: Bernie Sanders Threatens To Sue DNC.

Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) campaign manager said it would take the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to federal court Friday afternoon if it does not lift the suspension to the campaign’s voter database.

“If the Democratic National Committee holds our data hostage … we will be in federal court this afternoon seeking relief,” said Jeff Weaver, the campaign manager. He added that the party had an “inappropriate reaction” to reports that a Sanders campaign staffer accessed Hillary Clinton voter data.

The DNC suspended its access to the party’s voter database, which includes the Sanders campaign’s own data, after revelations that a campaign staffer obtained private data from rival Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Weaver told reporters that the campaign alerted the DNC about this problem two months ago, when it believed that some of its data had been “lost to one of the other campaigns.”

In an interview with CNN’s “Wolf” immediately after the Sanders campaign’s press conference, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz denied that Sanders’s voter information had been compromised two months ago, as Weaver claimed.

You know, Democrats don’t seem very good at handling data securely.
