Bernie Sanders Campaign: Staffer That Breached Voter Data May Have Been DNC Plant

The Democratic primary has been rattled by a breach of Hillary Clinton’s voter data by the Bernie Sanders campaign. And now, the Sanders campaign is blaming it on a DNC plant.

The unnamed Sanders adviser spoke with Yahoo News’ Hunter Walker and said that the staffer they fired, Josh Uretsky, came recommended by people not just close to the DNC, but to NGP VAN, the firm the DNC contracted to run the voter file. The adviser said, “It’s not as if we conjured this guy Josh from thin air.”

He was reportedly recommended by the DNC’s National Data Director, an individual closely involved in the voter file program, and someone who had worked as the COO of NGP VAN up until a few months ago.

The adviser calls it “utter hypocrisy” the DNC would try to punish them like that:

I mean here we are being attacked for the behavior of an individual, which we ultimately fired. We agree he acted improperly, but it’s just amazing to me that this … individual that actually caused this trouble in our campaign was recommended by these guys.

It’s a little hard to know what to think here. On the one hand, Bernie Sanders seems more than a little paranoid here… but on the other, the Clinton campaign is certainly corrupt enough to engineer this entire scheme with the DNC’s blessing. Who knows what actually happened?
