The Sanders lawsuit against the DNC over the alleged data breach. DON'T FALL FOR ALL THE LIES!
First, let's remember that the employee most responsible for the breach was one the DNC had recommended to the Sanders' campaign.
Second, on first learning of the breach, the Sanders' campaign reported it to the DNC and asked the DNC to take steps to secure data, which the DNC did not do.
Months ago, the Sanders campaign fired the four employees it believed to be responsible for the breach, apologized for the breach and asked for a complete investigation, agreeing to pay a share of the costs of the investigation. I don't know what more anyone could have reasonably expected from the Sanders campaign?
A DNC investigation, the results of which were also released Friday (meaning April 29), concluded that the wrongdoing did not go beyond the four Sanders staffers who accessed the database and were fired soon after the incident came to light.Sanders campaign drops lawsuit against DNC over voter database breach
The DNC immediately deprived the Sanders campaign of access to the Sanders' campaign own data. Sanders sued for access. After some shilly shallying, the DNC gave Sanders access. Withdrawing the suit after the DNC gave the campaign access (months ago) and the investigation was completed (very recently) does not show the suit had no merit to begin with. Just the opposite. It shows only that the things the campaign sued for in the first place had been completed.
Bernie Sanders Withdraws Lawsuit Against DNC After Being Proven Correct About Data Breach

After an independent investigation into the data breach before the Iowa caucuses concluded that the Sanders campaign told the truth, Bernie Sanders has withdrawn his lawsuit against the DNC.
Statement from the Sanders's campaign:
Independent Investigation Confirms Sanders Campaign Told the Truth

BURLINGTON, Vt. Four months ago, in an impulsive overreaction and at a critical point in the campaign just weeks before the closest Iowa caucus results in history, the DNC shut down the Sanders campaigns access to its own voter file data, only restoring access after the campaign filed a lawsuit in Federal court.
Now, four months later, an independent investigation of the firewall failures in the DNCs shared voter file database has definitively confirmed that the original claims by the DNC and the Clinton campaign were wholly inaccurate the Sanders campaign never stole any voter file data; the Sanders campaign never exported any unauthorized voter file data; and the Sanders campaign certainly never had access to the Clinton campaigns strategic road map.
In fact, the independent investigation has confirmed what the Sanders campaign said from the start:
the DNCs security failures allowed four Sanders campaign staffers three junior-level staffers led by a manager who had been hired at the recommendation of the DNC and who was immediately terminated after the incident to have extremely short-lived access for one hour to Hillary for Americas scoring models, but not to any of Hillary for Americas proprietary voter data.
No one else in the Sanders campaign, outside these four staffers, accessed the Hillary for Americas scoring models or had knowledge that the activity was taking place until well after the incident was over.
With one exception, all unauthorized access took place within the DNCs own system. While there is evidence that the terminated staffer may have exported a summary data table, the independent investigation of Sanders campaign computers could not locate that file and no one in the Sanders campaign has ever seen that file.
With the investigation behind us, the campaign has withdrawn its lawsuit against the DNC today but continues to implore the DNC to address the systemic instability that remains in its voter file system. It is imperative that the DNC make it a top priority to prevent future data security failures in the voter file system, failures that only serve as unnecessary distractions to the democratic process.
Bernie Sanders Campaign Manager Jeff Weaver said We are gratified by the results of this independent investigation.
At this point in the campaign I think most of us are used to seeing the Clinton camp spin the truth into some self-serving propaganda for them. I just consider the source and ignore it or laugh at them.
They can't handle the truth. I've put about 20 on ignore in the last 2 days.
That is not what I usually do. However, there was just so much bs on the board about this, I wanted to get something, anything, up as fast as I could.
Good to see you, though!
is your devotion and supplication???
for the dim witted:
Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
to whom you responded - those whom spout brockian memes and attempt to claim it is sarcasm to be despicably offensive. they know exactly what and why they post those statements and it is not to be cynical. they have a very conscious intent and it is all too prevalent on du.
My response was in jest. I cannot recall having posted about feeling the Bern, but I see nothing wrong with posting about feeling the Bern.
(Posting about feeling the Bernie, however, might be pervy.)
of bernie supporters. my experience is the try to win us over with a supportive post of berne every now and then - but their intent is to disrupt and repeat the rovian memes.
sorry, merrily. i've been on forums for many years and the whiff in the air is not sweet.
They know damned well Bernie Sanders would be the last one to want to game any system, unlike DWS and Clinton herself, imo. So many dirty tricks.
Their hate knows no bounds though. He dared to challenge the annointed one and because of that all the dirty past was brought up - not by Sanders, but by the millions that support him who did their research. - THAT is what they find unforgivable.
And I fully believe Sanders' voter information was stolen and used to canvass to and possibly disenfranchise certain voters before and at the polls.
What was said in How to Win Friends and Influence People never.
starting in November or December of last year.
I'm sure you will (a) get a reply and (b) any reply provided won't be total bullshit.
See? I still have faith in the system!
