    A Bernie Sanders campaign adviser made some pretty strong insinuations that the staffer who they had to fire for breaching Hillary Clinton‘s voter data was a DNC plant.
    You’ll recall that last week, the Sanders campaign got in trouble over this breach of data. The DNC cut off their access to the database, but gave it back after the Sanders camp filed a lawsuit.

    The unnamed Sanders adviser spoke with Yahoo News’ Hunter Walker and said that the staffer they fired, Josh Uretsky, came recommended by people not just close to the DNC, but to NGP VAN, the firm the DNC contracted to run the voter file. The adviser said, “It’s not as if we conjured this guy Josh from thin air.”

    He was reportedly recommended by the DNC’s National Data Director, an individual closely involved in the voter file program, and someone who had worked as the COO of NGP VAN up until a few months ago.

    The adviser calls it “utter hypocrisy” the DNC would try to punish them like that: "I mean here we are being attacked for the behavior of an individual, which we ultimately fired. We agree he acted improperly, but it’s just amazing to me that this … individual that actually caused this trouble in our campaign was recommended by these guys."

    Yahoo news is actually ok now.

    and it's just an interesting story to me because "DNC plant" means Hillary plant

    That's like the Globetrotters putting a "plant" onto the Washington Generals so that they can win.

    Sanders is nothing more to the Clinton campaign than the loyal opposition, I like the guy but he's not going to be the Democratic candidate. Clinton has it locked up already between the South and the Super delegates.

    He has a lot of youth support, she definitely wants him gone. im not saying he's going to be the candidate but she has reason to want him taken out.

    IMO, this incident helps him. no one is saying bernie did anything wrong.
    i also disagree she wants him gone. if he was gone, someone else may fill that void, someone who may beat her

    Well duh. I believe it, I think they would do anything to ensure their preferred candidate is chosen. Just like the GOP.

    i agree.
    i just dont think this does anything to help her win. i think its helping bernie and can be used against her/dnc in general election.


    i also dont think the 'anonymous source' is saying it was a plant, i think hes just saying bernies is not at fault for trusting someone the dnc trusted

    Yes he is, it shows his gullibility and weakness. What makes him think he could trust the dnc?

    The oval office is hers and at this minute she'd sell a grandkid for it. It was hers 8 years ago and they took it from her.
