Sanders Campaign Accuses DNC of Attempting to 'Undermine' White House Bid
After the Democratic National Committee suspended Bernie Sanders campaign’s access to its voter data, the Vermont senator’s campaign threatened to take the DNC to federal court.
The development came after the DNC cut Sanders off from the voter database after a software error allowed a Sanders staffer to view the Hillary Clinton campaign’s own proprietary data.
In a press conference today, Sanders' campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, accused the DNC of trying to sabotage the campaign.
"The DNC, in an inappropriate overreaction, has denied us access to our own data," Weaver said. "In other words, the leadership of the Democratic National Committee is actively trying to undermine our campaign ... If they hold our data hostage, we will be in federal court this afternoon seeking immediate relief."
Weaver also called for an independent audit of the DNC's "mishandling" of the Sanders campaign's data.
