As Election Day approaches many are depressed over the fact that we’re being forced to vote for “the lesser of two evils”.
Despite the many scandals that plague Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has quite a few political scandals of her own that have turned many voters off from wanting to vote for the former First Lady and Secretary of State.
The latest scandal is made known by way of the controversial WikiLeaks email leak that confirms just how messy and low Hillary Clinton is willing to go to win an election.
Erica Garner, the daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner, ripped the Hillary Clinton campaign in a series of tweets Thursday after new campaign emails released by WikiLeaks showed how the Democratic nominee’s staffers discussed the death of her father.
“I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed ‘using’ Eric Garner … Why would you want to ‘use my dad?” Garner tweeted along with a link to emails released by WikiLeaks. “These people will co opt anything to push their agenda. Police violence is not the same as gun violence.
“I’m vey (sic) interested to know exactly what @CoreyCiorciari meant when he said ‘I know we have an Erica Garner problem’ in the #PodestaEmails19,” added Garner.
Maya Harris, another Clinton aide replied, “Eric Garner not included because not killed by gun violence.”
“I’m glad you had Maya on your team to explain why you won’t be USING my dad in you f—–g gun violence piece… Black woman saved your a–,” Garner added.
The editorial the Clinton staffers were discussing ran in the New York Daily News on March 27.
A spokesman for the Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to questions about Garner’s latest tweets.
Garner’s 43-year-old father died on July 17, 2014, after he resisted arrest for selling illegal loose cigarettes on Staten Island. Officer Daniel Pantaleo applied a chokehold to take Garner down, and he died a short time later. His death emerged as a flashpoint in police violence issues.
Erica Garner endorsed Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary and has, on multiple occasions, used her Twitter account to criticize the Clinton camp.
