Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., announces presidential run [VIDEO]CLICK HERE TO READ THE LAW SUIT Bernie Sanders is suing the Democratic party for $600,000 a day in damages, claiming it breached its contract with the campaign by dramatically removing all access to crucial voter records just days before the Iowa caucus.

A copy of the lawsuit filed with a federal court in Washington reveals that the agreement to use a shared computer system for voter registration and supporter data included a provision for a 10-day notice period for any changes to access.


It comes as the Democratic National Committee immediately suspended all access for the Sanders team to a shared database system as punishment for a data breach in which a number of staff accessed records belonging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign during a software glitch.
