So far, DNC emails mock an African-American name, contain anti-gay slur – what’s next?

Hacked emails by Democratic National Committee officials paint a different picture of a party that bills itself as the representative of American minorities.

WikiLeaks published thousands of emails by DNC staffers just days before the launch of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

One email, addressed to DNC Finance Chief of Staff Scott Comer from Zachary Allen of TIPAH Consulting, revealed an apparently racist comment, mocking the name of a black woman, LaQueenia Gibson, an executive assistant for the company Haddad Brands.

“I’m going to have LaQueenia send out some options for next week,” wrote a Haddad executive to DNC staffers. Comer forwarded the email to Allen with the note, “Just kill me now.”

“LaQueenia is a NAME!” Allen responded. “I’m sorry, boo. I hope you got a raise with this title.”

Democratic Committee staffers have also been exposed in the WikiLeaks emails for using anti-gay language and conspiring to undermine Bernie Sanders in his failed presidential bid, going as far as planning an attack on the Vermont senator’s religious beliefs. A DNC-approved ad portraying Donald Trump as sexist was also exposed.

The email dump revealed an unethical attempt by the DNC and Hillary Clinton staffers to reward donors with promised positions in a Clinton administration if she became elected president.

Fallout from the emails and outrage from Sanders supporters led to a bumpy start to the Democratic National Convention, with the resignation of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Monday.
