A South Carolina aide for Tom Steyers 2020 presidential campaign stole valuable volunteer data collected by Kamala Harris campaign using an account from when he worked with the S.C. Democratic Party, according to multiple state and national party officials.
The Steyer campaign said that it does not have possession of the data and that Democratic officials were only aware of the download, which they said was inadvertent, because they proactively notified them. Both the Democratic National Committee and S.C. Democratic Party denied that.
The Democratic National Committee said they quickly caught the attempt on Friday by Steyers deputy S.C. state director Dwane Sims to export Harris data, which contained thousands of volunteer contacts collected over the course of the campaign in this critical early-voting primary state.
The party sent a cease-and-desist letter and has since received certification from Sims that he destroyed the stolen data, S.C. Democratic Party chairman Trav Robertson told The Post and Courier.
We take this matter very seriously, and that is why we immediately worked with the DNC to disable this employees access to Vote Builder, said S.C. Democratic Party chairman Trav Robertson, referring to the voter file system. It is critical that the Steyer campaign take immediate action regarding their employee.

Now we know how Steyer got his money, he stole it.
No honor among thieves.
Didnt realize Steyer was Russian...
He should be thankful that he did not try this with the Hildabeast.
Maybe wikileaks has it
“Democrat”, not “Democratic”.
Because they’re not.
He must not be using the Stolen Booty then, because most people still never heard of him.
“Now we know how Steyer got his money, he stole it.”
Right. All this does is make your boss/candidate look bad.
Forget the Russians hacking the DNC...they’re hacking themselves.
Is there such a creature as an honest Democrat? Reminds me of the old trick we used to play on people who were “less than informed”. Remember Snipe Hunting? I do believe that honest Democrats are as hard to find as Snipes.
Throw them all in jail just to be sure.
I remember snipe hunting from Boys Scouts many decades ago.
The older guys would take the newbies out to snipe hunt and then go back to their tents to bed, leaving the new kids out there all night looking for the snipes to capture.
A simpleton's initiation rite.
i don’t see what difference it’s gonna make: Kamala won’t make it to the S.C. primaries anyway: she’ll probably drop out right after she’s crushed in Iowa and can’t raise anymore money ...
And they immediately regretted it -- not the stealing part, the stolen info part. Thanks yesthatjallen.
