What Clinton is saying.
This is incredibly disappointing,” said Mook. “Someone who said they’d run a different kind of campaign, and their staff stole data from us and is seeking to fundraise off this. It’s very serious and not something to be fundraising off of.”
The Clinton campaign dismissed the notion, put forth by the Sanders campaign, that a lone staffer had happened upon the data, insisting that on 25 occasions at least four Sanders staffers made inquiries into their data tables and sought to save or export the data to maintain possession of it once the system was repaired.
A single person getting fired as opposed to the 4 that did the deed.
What's really important to notice on this topic, is that you are willing to believe what the Clinton camp says.
Good job, Neo. That's a first.
We knew you could do it.
Whats really important is I love people taking pot shots for AGREEING with my first link here.
Politico that quoted the EXACT same thing.
Do people not even READ ?
Here’s what happened.
On Wednesday morning, there was a release of VAN code. Unfortunately, it contained a bug. For a brief window, the voter data that is always searchable across campaigns in VoteBuilder included client scores it should not have, on a specific part of the VAN system. So for voters that a user already had access to, that user was able to search by and view (but not export or save or act on) some attributes that came from another campaign.
As soon as we realized that there was an issue, we immediately mobilized our engineers to investigate the source of the issue. While we investigated the issue, we restricted access to affected areas of the VAN product for all users and limited access to data exports. Engineers quickly discovered the problem, and developed a fix.
We immediately began an audit to determine if any users had intentionally or unintentionally gained access to data they normally would not have access to within the limited timeframe when the bug was live. Our team removed access to the affected data, and determined that only one campaign took actions that could possibly have led to it retaining data to which it should not have had access.
We are honored to work with the DNC, the Clinton campaign, and the Sanders campaign. At the request of the DNC on Thursday, Sanders campaign access was suspended pending the campaign reporting on its access of the data; NGP VAN played no role in making that decision, and contractually could not. Again, this bug was a brief isolated issue, and we are not aware of any previous reports of such data being inappropriately available. We look forward to supporting all our Democratic clients, and in particular apologize to the DNC, Clinton and Sanders campaigns for our bug Wednesday. We will continue to work with and report to the DNC regarding this issue to ensure that this isolated incident does not recur. We have and will do better.
“Personally — and I can’t speak for the organization on this — if I were in his situation I can’t see that I would have any choice,” aded DeMoro, whose union was the first to endorse Sanders. If he is denied access to his voter base, what choice does he have. If the process in the Democratic party is this rigged, how can he be loyal?”
“This campaign has been so biased from the beginning. It’s sabotage. It’s continuous. They make the Republicans look Democratic,” she said. “We are at a rupture here in democracy and the Democratic party.
“It’s a strategy for demobilization, but what it’s going to do is have exactly the opposite effect,” she added. “They have mis-stepped so severely with the populist base that they could lose this base forever. If the DNC is this disloyal to us, why should we be loyal to the DNC?”
Its current president and CEO, Stuart Trevelyan, was a veteran of the 1992 Clinton-Gore War Room, providing research, analysis, and whip counts to the Clinton Administration as a member of the White House Office of Legislative Affairs.
We made history tonight. The Bernie Sanders campaign has collected over 2,000,000. individual donations as of 8 pm. More than any other presidential campaign in history at this point in the campaign. Even Obama 2008 didn’t collect 1 million donations until after the Iowa caucuses.
This gives an indication of the massive grassroots support actively working to elect President Bernie Sanders.

A deal has been reached between the Bernie Sanders campaign and the Democratic National Committee to allow the campaign to regain access to voter files, Sanders' spokesman Michael Briggs told CNN.
We demand that DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz immediately reinstate the Bernie Sanders campaign's access to the DNC's 50-state voter file, which is crucial for voter outreach in the last weeks before the first Democratic caucuses. Shutting down Sanders' tools to reach voters is an infringement on democracy.
