Sanders camp admits anti-Warren script was deployed in multiple early states

Politico

Sanders initially attributed the talking points to rogue staffers, and supporters launched an online campaign to convince people the document was fake.

DES MOINES, Iowa — The controversial talking points attacking Elizabeth Warren that Bernie Sanders' campaign deployed were given to teams in at least two early voting states on Friday, three Sanders campaign officials confirmed.

Volunteers and staffers used the script on Saturday while canvassing for votes, meaning the talking points were more official than what Sanders previously suggested after POLITICO reported on the language.

The script mostly focused on Sanders' ability to beat President Donald Trump in a general election. But one page included attacks on the electability of Warren, as well as Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg.

“The language was pulled because it was sloppily worded,” a Sanders official said, confirming that the script was an official campaign document.

1. Yet, I heard Warren, "the woman", labeled a chronic liar and embellisher.

4. Sanders is running a no holds barred campaign

 

may be he is copying how Trump operated during primaries to win nomination.
