Bernie supporters leaving vile voicemails for Nevada chair
It’s time for Sanders’ supporters to tamp it down and for Bernie Sanders, himself, to lead the way.
…the state Democratic Chairwoman Roberta Lange has been receiving vile threats. One male caller suggested Lange be “hung in a public execution” and said “I hope you burn for this” — while leaving his phone number and hoping to go into further detail with her. Bernie Sanders released a statement complaining of poor treatment in Nevada and denying accusations that his campaign supporters are violence-prone. “Within the last few days there have been a number of criticisms made against my campaign organization,” the statement reads. “Party leaders in Nevada, for example, claim that the Sanders campaign has a ‘penchant for violence.’ That is nonsense.”
