Ohio Bernie Delegate Says She's Worried About Impact Of Leaked Emails On Fellow Sanders Support

Jul 26, 2016

One Ohio party leader who’s at the DNC as an elected delegate for Bernie Sanders says she’s very worried about the effect of the email scandal involving the outgoing Democratic Party chair.

Former state Sen. Nina Turner of Cleveland is concerned. “The facade of unity is not going to carry out until some folks really start to address this issue and give voice to the issue.”

Turner said the Democratic Party needs to address the leaked emails that show Debbie Wasserman Schultz slammed Bernie Sanders and wasn’t neutral in her role as party chair – and that pro-Bernie demonstrators might not come out to vote if they don’t hear that. “We have to say we're going to do things in a different way, that we need you. People want to be asked to the dance.”

And as for whether she’s on board with Hillary Clinton, Turner only will say she’s trying to get through this week.
