“Clinton campaign sweats out data breach damage”


Accusing your opponent of committing evil and unpardonable crimes is basic presidential campaign jujitsu. But Hillary’s Clinton’s team is genuinely jittery about the sneak peek taken by Bernie Sanders staffers into their secret voter file.
The unauthorized fishing expedition into the database housing the names and demographic information of voters Clinton plans to target – which led to the sacking of a top Sanders staffer and the suspension of two more — has embittered the campaigns against one another, even if the two principals made nice on the debate stage Saturday night.

And it’s a source of real and deepening concern for Clinton’s data and voter targeting teams in Iowa – where Clinton leads by single digits — and New Hampshire, where she trails neighboring-state Sen. Sanders by a similar spread.
