The surprise is not that Donna Brazile cheated, but that she admitted she cheated.
Despite earlier denials, the former interim chairwoman of the DNC admitted Friday in a piece published by Time that as a CNN contributor she forwarded primary town hall questions to the Clinton campaign.

The Democratic political strategist denied the charge during an October interview with Fox News, when hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta showed she had forwarded questions.

Predictably, Brazile played the victim… the irony not lost of her claiming to be “a Christian woman” while lying.
“As a Christian woman, I understand persecution,” she said. “But I will not sit here and be persecuted. Your information is totally false.”
The reaction on social media suggested Brazile may regret getting caught more than the actual cheating — unless she knows there’s more coming down the pike.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
@mmurraypolitics @brithume Shows how devious and dirty the Dem’s were in our last campaign; She had the nerve to chastise Megyn Kelly for calling her on out on it. Sad

@mmurraypolitics @cballetto And this is why Donna Brazile should be persona non grata in the Democratic Party. She’s a witless saboteur.

@mmurraypolitics @MZHemingway I remember the halcyon days when questioning her on this point was racist. Or sexist. Or somethingist.
