WikiLeaks: Clinton Camp Called Nurses’ Union “Fringe” and “Not Real”

HeadlineOct 31, 2016

Clinton’s troubles came as WikiLeaks made public more hacked emails from the account of campaign chair John Podesta. In one email, campaign manager Robby Mook urged his staff to attack National Nurses United, which endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination, as “fringe” and “not a real union.” NNU in fact represents 185,000 members and is affiliated with the AFL-CIO. In response, NNU Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro called the comment “a preview of what we can expect in the next four years and a reminder that—from day one of the Clinton administration—NNU and our allies will need to make our voices loudly heard to advocate for social, economic, and political justice.”
