Call me a cynic but the question is, why did NGP VAN Data Co. firewall drop?

Debbie Wasserman Schultz in driver's seat

The Observer News counts Debbie Wasserman Schultz's support of Hillary Clinton back to the 2008 election, which has mushroomed into the backing we have experienced recently where she personally cut off the life-blood of the Bernie Sanders campaign by shutting down access to their voter data. NGP VAN is the data co. holding the information in question. The publication called for her resignation immediately. The Observer also recounted other incidents of favorability and mismanagement.

  • "Schultz’s decision to limit the debate schedule of the 2016 presidential primaries to six sanctioned debates favors Hillary Clinton." 26 debates were held in 2008, possibly important in Obama's win over Clinton.
  • "Debbie Wasserman Schultz is depending on Hillary Clinton winning the Democratic nomination to further her own political career," after having fallen out of favor with Obama administration.
  • Her leadership led to catastrophic losses for the Democrats during the 2014 midterm elections. She directly assisted in losses by refusing to support three Democrats, Miami-Dade Democratic Party chair Joe Garcia, former Hialeah Mayor Raul Martinez and businesswoman Annette Taddeo.

There are others but these are the most obvious. 

The Observer closes with:  

"Ms. Wasserman Schultz has often favored her own agenda and political considerations over what would be best for the Democratic Party. If Hillary loses, she will lose one of her last remaining allies in the Democratic Party and the career benefits that are normally inherent with serving as the Chair of the DNC.

Now you decide why she, as DNC head, is holding Bernie Sander's campaign data hostage. Sander's Campaign Mgr. Jeff Weaver, has threatened to sue the DNC in Federal Court.

(As a P.S. the two sides have now settled the matter)
