Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s (D., Fla.) primary challenger has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Committee claiming that the former Democratic National Committee chair wrongfully used DNC resources to target his campaign.
Tim Canova, a law professor and Bernie Sanders supporter, claimed his campaign lawyers found evidence in the recent Wikileaks that Schultz violated FEC rules.
“It’s very clear that Wasserman Schultz was using the DNC resources to monitor my campaign and to strategize on how to crush the campaign,” Canova said Monday night during an interview with MSNBC, according to Free Beacon. “That’s a violation of federal law.”
This came a week after Schultz announced she was resigning as committee chair amid fallout from the email leak suggesting the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary. Canova said his recent discovery was just the “tip of the iceberg” of Schultz’s mismanagement of the campaign.
“A lot of folks are unhappy with her, and this is what I mean, that she’ll be a drag on the ticket at this point,” he said.
A poll released by Canova’s campaign on Sunday had him trailing Schultz by 8 points. What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
