My momma taught me that character is who you are in the dark when nobody is watching
The cognitive dissonance here is astounding. How apoplectic would Sanders supporters be if Hillary's campaign had been the one stealing data? Now they are making up all kinds of conspiracy theories about Clinton and the DNC? And they are angry that the DNC might even want to take action against the Sanders' campaign?
At work, I know that if I get some inadvertent computer access (even if the IT administrator screwed up) and use it to poke around files that I'm not supposed to look at, I get fired immediately and may even face criminal charges.
This is the National Data Director, not some low level staffers. He represents the campaign. It's extremely easy to tell from log files whether it was just "hey that isn't supposed to be here. let's take a look. whoa...let's get out of there immediately and tell the DNC" or "hey look what we found! let's look for their super-secret plan for xxx".
Cheating is wrong, no matter which side you are on. Just ask Tom Brady.
I do not care whose campaign is cheating because cheating is simply bad. The Tom Brady comparison in the OP is apt
Hart's campaign dissolved when it was revealed just who he really was.
Let's hope this is not one of those moments. Let's hope that the fired staffer, like so many Bernie supporters at DU, does not represent in any way the character of Sanders.
Talk about cognitive dissonance.
They would be yelling for her to suspend her campaign. Get ready for an influx of IT experts posts to explain this away.
Only now, when it is most harmful for ONE campaign in particular, does she take action. And it is a massive overreaction. Her bias is showing: it is ugly and evil.
What did your momma tell you about the moment to do the right thing? And about proportionality?
