DNC Gets Underway Amid Boos by Bernie Supporters
It didn’t exactly feel like the City of Brotherly (or sisterly) Love today in Philly, where the Democratic National Convention opened amid anti-Hillary Clinton sentiment. The boos from Bernie Sanders supporters hit after Wikileaks email revelations — allegedly brought to us by Russian hackers — forced DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz’s resignation. One email appeared to show staffers discussing how to weaken Sanders’ southern primary support by referencing his faith. But the bespectacled Vermont senator asked those gathered to pipe down as delegates prepared to hear remarks from Cory Booker, Michelle Obama and Elizabeth Warren.
