Working Families Party Faces Abuse Over Warren Nod

The Rising reports:

An official at the Working Families Party (WFP) said Friday that he — and many of his fellow staffers — have faced a deluge of violent, racist, and sexist attacks following the progressive group’s endorsement of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

“There’s been good faith debate and conversations on the Internet — and I’m here for all of it,” Maurice Mitchell, National Director of the Working Families Party, said. “Public leadership is about public accountability and engaging in those conversations.”

“Also, there has been some of the most violent, disgusting, racist and sexist attacks against myself, against Nelini Stamp — another leader in our party — and many, many of our staff people, every day working people who are trying to make this world better and that’s unacceptable,” he added.

As I reported earlier this week, in 2016 the Working Families Party had endorsed Bernie Sanders, who yesterday tweeted a response to complaints about harassment.
