Breaking news, the Sanders campaign is disciplined for breaching Clinton voter data. For the uninformed, this sounds like a big deal. Once you dig just a bit under the surface, you find that:
– The DNC has repeatedly conspired to keep a debate schedule favorable to the front runner (Hillary Clinton)
– Independent candidates like Prof. Larry Lessig were kept out of the debates
Which goes to show that DNC is hardly the impartial arbiter it should be in this contest. And furthermore:
– NGP VAN, the contractor hired by the DNC, has in the past brought the campaign data firewall down multiple times
– The Sanders campaign had alerted months ago the DNC that the firewall was broken, and the issue kept happening
Now, the DNC has decided to teach Sanders a lesson, and suspended altogether the campaign’s access to the DNC database. “The decision by the party committee is a major blow to Sanders’ campaign. The database includes information from voters across the nation and is used by campaigns to set strategy, especially in the early voting states”, reports the Boston Globe.
Talk about cause, effect and proportionality.
Really, it sounds like the DNC is prepared to put its second and third thumb on the scale. Nothing must be left to chance. The front runner must win!
