WASHINGTON, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- The Democratic National Committee restored voter data access to Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign late Friday, hours after the campaign sued the DNC in federal court.
The DNC blocked Sanders', I-Vt, access to the crucial data early Friday after the campaign accessed voter information belonging to rival Hillary Clinton. Sander's campaign acknowledged the breach, but swiftly moved to sue in federal court and launched a media blitz opposing the DNC's decision. Late Friday, the DNC backed down. Sanders' campaign blamed the breach on the DNC's software provider NPG VAN and accused the DNC of sabotaging the campaign.
