Newly leaked documents from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) reveal that members of the organization are concerned that some of the party’s candidates for Congress are too “pro-police”:
The documents include notes about electoral demographics, fundraising and similar campaign information, but most notably include criticism of at least two of the party’s own candidates going into Florida’s Aug. 30 primary election.
In the state’s 10th district, for example, where four Democrats are vying to replace Republican Rep. Daniel Webster, the DCCC papers single out one candidate: Bob Poe, who the documents note could be viewed as “anti-black lives matter/pro-police” and as “too conservative among other progressive Democrats.”
How have we reached a place where supporting the people who put their lives on the line to protect ours is a bad thing?
The DCCC documents were released by “Guccifer 2.0,” the hacker who allegedly accessed emails from both the DCCC and the Democratic National Committee.
