Sanders campaign staffers seek ‘payback’ against former DNC chair by hitting her where it hurts

Powered by Topple

The consulting firm that helped define Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign is now working to oust Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman.

With Sanders’ presidential bid over, the firm Devine, Mulvey, Longabaugh has switched gears and is now working on behalf of Wasserman Schultz’s primary opponent Tim Canova, according to Politico.

Canova is considered an underdog in the Aug. 30 primary.

The announcement comes on the heels of Sanders’ endorsement of Canova, which resulted in a $2 million bump in campaign donations to the populist liberal South Florida law professor.

The firm, headed by Tad Devine, Mark Longabaugh and Julian Mulvey, helped drive Sanders to prominence and turn the Democratic presidential primary into a real horse race, mainly through its media ads for the Vermont independent.

Disregarding the adage that revenge is best served cold, this latest move was prompted in large part by hacked emails published by WikiLeaks proving the DNC actively worked to propel Hillary Clinton to become the Democratic presidential nominee.

Ever since those emails were made public, Sanders delegates and supporters have been waging an all-out war against the former DNC chairwoman as well as the Democratic presidential nominee.

Wasserman Schultz resigned as DNC charwoman on the final day of the Democratic National Convention because of the furor caused by the leaked emails.
