Democratic strategist Donna Brazile in a Time Magazine essay admitted sending presidential-primary town-hall questions to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Brazile said she will “forever regret” the decision, which was made public after WikiLeaks published emails from Clinton ally John Podesta in October.
“My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good,” Brazile wrote. “But sending those e-mails was a mistake I will forever regret.”
Brazile is a New Orleans native who had witnessed Hurricane Katrina. “Am I supposed to sit there and let people get poisoned?” she asked.
A second question was about the death penalty. She noted that Black Lives Matter was vocal during this period.
Brazile said she felt more at liberty to speak out now that she is no longer interim chair of the Democratic National Committee. In fact, she disclosed that she had been accepted as a fellow at the Joan Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard University in the fall and plans to write about punditry and journalism.
