On July 22, 2016 Wikileaks released another batch of leaked DNC emails. One of them was an email from DNC National Press Secretary Mark Paustenbach to Luis Miranda, the national communications director for the DNC, with the subject header “Bernie Narrative” in which it is discussed planting stories to the press about how Bernie’s campaign was a mess.
This is disgusting, corrupt, Orwellian shit and it’s the reason we must focus our energies on destroying Hillary and the DNC.
Here is the full text of that email:
From:firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com Date: 2016-05-21 22:23 Subject: Bernie narrative
Wondering if there’s a good Bernie narrative for a story, which is that Bernie never ever had his act together, that his campaign was a mess.
Specifically, DWS had to call Bernie directly in order to get the campaign to do things because they’d either ignored or forgotten to something critical.
She had to call Bernie after the data breach to make his staff to respond to our concerns. Even then they didn’t get back to us, which is why we had to shut off their access in order to get them to finally let us know exactly how they snooped around HFA’s data.
Same was true with the standing committee appointments. They never got back to us with their names (HFA and even O’Malley got there’s in six weeks earlier) for the committees. So, again, the chair had to call Bernie personally for his staff to finally get us critical information. So, they gave us an awful list just a few days before we had to make the announcements.
It’s not a DNC conspiracy, it’s because they never had their act together.
Fuck these people. Fuck their party.
