Hillary has been in the hot seat, but she escaped unscathed.
But what is really going on behind the scenes? Is something big going down inside the DNC?
A high level Democratic National Committee staff member, Seth Rich, was gunned down by unknown assailants near his home in Washington, D.C. while reportedly walking home at 4 a.m.
As the Washington Post noted:
Seth Rich made such an impression as a teenage intern in Nebraska that a U.S. Senate campaign hired him before he completed high school. A young man who dreamed politics, he headed to Capitol Hill after college.
Early Sunday morning, the 27-year-old was shot to death in a crime that has shaken not only his family, colleagues and friends, but also many in his Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest. Police said they have no suspects, witnesses or motive, though they are looking at whether Rich could have been slain in an attempted robbery.
“He wanted to make a difference,” Joel Rich said of the younger of his two sons. “Politics was in his blood.” He called his son’s killing “a waste.”
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz gave condolences for a staff member described as being from a prominent Jewish family that she appears to have known personally:
“Seth Rich was a dedicated, selfless public servant who worked tirelessly to protect the most sacred right we share as Americans,” said Wasserman Schultz.
“He was a joy to have as a member of our team, and his talents, intelligence and enthusiasm will be deeply missed by many friends, colleagues and co-workers who worked by his side in service to the highest ideals of our democracy.”
Tragic. And apparently senseless. But what really happened?
Was a high level DNC staffer really just killed in a random robbery attempt in the middle of the night, coincidentally months before the 2016 election, which has been a lightning rod for controversy?
It is simply hard to believe in coincidence.
The real question, then, is: what did he know?
All we know so far is that this 27 year old was in charge of voter expansion data and had something to do with a program that tapped into the nationwide database of registered voters.
According to the Washington Post:
After graduating in 2011, Rich was quickly hired by a national polling company and moved to the District. Two years later, he went to the Democratic National Committee, where he worked on the development of a computer program that allows people to enter their names and have maps drawn to their polling places. It required data culled from every voter precinct in the country.
Given that it is election year 2016, and every sneaky thing in the world is going on, one has to wonder if there was something that needed to be covered up in the voter rosters or registration process.
It calls to mind the tragic death a top Republican IT “guru” who died in a suspicious plane crash back in 2008… all because he seemed to know quite a bit about how electronic voting machines worked.
