PHILADELPHIA — Democrats unfurled a massive banner that read “Election Fraud, #Wikileaks” as vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine took the stage Wednesday night at the Democratic National Convention.

The banner hung briefly over the railing just above the section where Vice President Joe Biden is sitting, along with his wife Jill and other VIP guests, directly across from Kaine.

The DNC was thrown off this week when Wikileaks published tens of thousands of embarrassing internal emails from the Democratic National Committee, which showed the committee collaborated with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to deny her rival Sen. Bernie Sanders the nomination.

As a result of the emails, Democrats fired DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Late Wednesday, the leak widened, as Wikileaks dumped a bunch of DNC voicemails on the web.

The leak confirmed the worst fears of many Sanders supporters, who staged a massive walkout Tuesday when Clinton was officially nominated. Protests continued inside and outside the arena Tuesday, and spilled into Wednesday, as bitterly disappointed Sanders supporters refused to give up the fight.
