Tomorrow night’s Democrat presidential debate in New Hampshire just got very, very interesting.
The DNC has suspended Bernie Sanders’ access to its voter database because one his staffers accessed data from Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Jeff Weaver (Sanders’ campaign manager, not the former big league pitcher) accused the DNC of “actively attempting to undermine our campaign.” The Sanders’ campaign has now threatened to take the DNC to court over the matter and followed through on that threat before the end of the day.
Now I’m sure if this gets raised in tomorrow night’s debate (if the moderator and panelists don’t raise, Bernie has to raise it himself), Hillary will say that Bernie’s dispute is with the DNC, not her. Of course, this assumes the DNC doesn’t have a vested interest in the outcome and also assumes Hillary didn’t have influence on this decision. This is, after all, a woman who threatened a comedy club because they dared to make fun of her. I’m sure Hillary doesn’t consider a breach of her data to be a laughing matter even if she does receive top secret e-mail on her home server.
Yet all of this could make left-wing voters, who feel the fix is in, “feel the Bern” once again. Bernie might have taken the e-mail issue off the table, but the DNC suspending his access to the voter database is for all intents and purposes a declaration fo war. If there’s any chance for Bernie to upend Hillary it has to happen tomorrow night.
The debate airs on ABC Saturday night at 8 p.m. EST.
