100+ Bernie Bros File Class Action Lawsuit Against Debbie Wasserman Schultz, DNC
More than 100 Bernie Sanders supporters have sued the Democratic National Committee and its chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for fraud.
The suit claims that Wasserman Schultz and the DNC “knowingly made false statements and omissions” that undermined the 2016 Democratic primary process.
“Despite there being every indication that the 2016 Democratic primary would be contested by multiple candidates, including Sanders, the DNC Memo makes no mention of any Democratic candidate except Clinton, and builds the DNC’s election strategy on the assumption that Clinton will be the nominee, with no doubts attached,” reads the brief.
The Broward Palm Beach New Times notes that the filing comes just after hacked DNC emails revealed the Committee had “been planning strategies to help Hillary Clinton defeat Donald Trump in the general election.” (REPORT: Russian Hacker Accessed DNC Emails, Trump Opposition Research)
