Democracy Now! Show for August 25, 2016 | Democracy Now!

You can jump to start at around 46-50 minutes for the part on why Our Revolution staff resigned. Jeff Weaver, the campaign staffer of Bernie 2016, was promised that he would not be involved with the organisation, or if he was, it would only be in a token role. Weaver was given the position of president of the organisation, and established it as a 501 (c) (4) which allowed the organisation to receive funding from billionaires, which contravened the wishes of the Sanders campaign (move away from an oligarchy) and of the staffers who resigned. Claire Sandberg also stated that the organisation structure prevented them from doing effective organising for candidates (it was not legal to communicate with one candidate that she mentioned, Tim Kanova).
