Bernie Sanders’ campaign has filed a lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over a ban on voting information. Campaign manager Jeff Weaver admitted that four Sanders staffers illegally accessed information Hillary Clinton’s campaign had acquired. One of the staffers behind the illegal access of Clinton’s data has been fired and the others are under review.
However, Weaver argued that the DNC overreacted when it banned the Sanders campaign from accessing critical voter information, including info it collected itself. He blasted the DNC for “trying to help the Clinton campaign” as the ban will put Sanders at a serious disadvantage. The DNC has long been accused of unfairly supporting Clinton, especially by Sanders’ supporters.
