Debbie Wasserman Schultz implied Thursday that Bernie Sanders’ supporters are engaging in harassment tactics in order to win over superdelegates.

CNN “New Day” host Chris Cuomo observed that a pro-Sanders website called SuperdelegateList.com lists the names and contact information of every Democratic delegate who can vote however he or she wishes at the convention.

“The concern is this is a harassment dynamic going on,” Cuomo said. “What is your take?”

“It’s certainly completely fine because superdelegates are up for grabs,” the Democratic National chairwoman said. “But using tactics that border on harassment, that feel like stalking is really something that I hope, you know, our campaigns really condemn.”

“That we make sure that their supporters’ enthusiasm is fantastic, making sure we have appropriate contact and outreach is just great, but intimidation is not okay,” she said.

“And I am not suggesting that that’s occurring right now,” she cautioned. “But I think we need to make sure that we are careful about how we persuade, so to speak.”
