Bernie Sanders Will Get His Data Access Back

Bernie Sanders will have his voter file access restored to him Saturday morning, according to the DNC and the Sanders campaign.

Buzzfeed has the statements:

“The Sanders campaign has now complied with the DNC’s request to provide the information that we have requested of them,” DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in her statement. “Based on this information, we are restoring the Sanders campaign’s access to the voter file, but will continue to investigate to ensure that the data that was inappropriately accessed has been deleted and is no longer in possession of the Sanders campaign.”

The Sanders campaign statement, on the other hand, declared that the DNC “capitulated and agreed to reinstate” access to the database.

Whichever is more correct, the bottom line is that data access is restored. Now we can all go back to grousing about the fact that the Democratic debate is on the Saturday night before Christmas.
