Newly leaked documents reveal that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) attacked at least one candidate they believed was too “pro-police” and not a big enough support of Black Lives Matter.
The documents were published online by the hacker Guccifer 2.0.
One research document labeled “campaign overview” listed candidate for Florida’s 10th congressional district Val Demings as too “Anti-black lives matter/pro-police” and “Too conservative among other progressive Democrats.”
Take a look at the portion of the assessment below:
What is even more shocking is that Demings is a black woman.

New internal documents from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that were leaked Monday reveal that the organization is highly critical of some Democratic candidates for Congress, including one that’s too “pro-police” for national party officials.
The documents include notes about electoral demographics, fundraising and similar campaign information, but most notably include criticism of at least two of the party’s own candidates going into Florida’s Aug. 30 primary election.
In the state’s 10th district, for example, where four Democrats are vying to replace Republican Rep. Daniel Webster, the DCCC papers single out one candidate: (Val Demings), who the documents note could be viewed as “anti-black lives matter/pro-police” and as “too conservative among other progressive Democrats.”
