Sanders, Clinton Camps Spar Over Breached Firewall
A software error at the Democratic National Committee has led to a lawsuit from Bernie Sanders' campaign, and accusations of theft from Clinton's.By Matt Picht | December 18, 2015
"The leadership of the Democratic National Committee is now actively attempting to undermine our campaign," campaign manager Jeff Weaver told reporters.
Right before its final debate of the year, the Democratic presidential field is getting some serious drama. Bernie Sanders' campaign has filed a lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee and is butting heads with Hillary Clinton's campaign over some mishandled voter data.
The dispute centers on the DNC's database on Democratic voters, which is ordinarily partitioned to prevent rival candidates from rifling through opponents' files. A vendor mistake briefly took that firewall down — allowing four Sanders staffers to access Clinton's information. One of those staffers has been fired.
