Sanders sues party with US Democrats on verge of open warfare

US Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders' campaign has been punished by the party after at least one its staffers used a computer glitch to peek at Hillary Clinton voter dataDemocratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders’ campaign filed a lawsuit against his party, setting up a potentially fiery showdown with rival and frontrunner Hillary Clinton at their prime-time televised debate on Saturday. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Thursday temporarily suspended the Sanders campaign’s access to the party’s voter database, after at least one of its staffers took advantage of a computer glitch to peek at crucial Clinton voter data. The suspension is a slap to Sanders’ hopes of scoring an upset over Clinton for the Democratic nomination because the trove features information on voters nationwide and candidates use it to plan strategy, as they vie to replace Barack Obama.
