PENNSYLVANIA - Another black eye for the Democratic Party as Bernie Sanders announces a huge change. In 2015 Sanders announced he was no longer an Independent and intended to run as a Democrat in all future elections. Sanders quickly changed his mind after leaked documents appear to show the Democratic Party unfairly worked to elect Hillary Clinton.
With the Democratic National Convention in full swing, former candiate Bernie Sanders officially confirmed to reporters he will return to the United States Senate as an Independent. Sanders was elected as an Independent but promised last year to file paperwork changing his party affiliation. The Senator from Vermont has held the office since January 3, 2007.
Leaked documents published by WikiLeaks reveal the Democratic Party unfairly favored Hillary Clinton in the primary. Fallout from the #DNCLeaks led to the resignation of party leader Debbie Wasserman Schultz who was then immediately hired by Hillary Clinton.
