Emily's list misrepresenting the Sanders Clinton qualifications conflict.

I received the following email from Emily's list last night that presented Sanders comments about Hillary's qualifications without context. Mainly that it was Clinton that started the conflict by dismissing Sanders qualifications. At fist I just deleted. Then I decided I was going to unsubscribe so I could have the chance to tell them my opinion about their misleading email. If I didn't visit this Bernie Sanders Group I would not have known that the email I received was not the complete truth. How many others will this email mislead?

Can you guess which candidate Bernie Sanders and his campaign just called ambitious and unqualified to be president?

If you guessed Donald Trump, you'd be wrong.

On Tuesday, Sanders' campaign manager said Hillary Clinton's ambition could destroy the Democratic Party. And Sanders himself said she was not "qualified" to be president at a rally in Philadelphia last night.

I don't know about you, but I'm GLAD the most qualified person to ever run for the presidency threw her hat into the ring nearly a year ago. And I'm proud that EMILY's List threw our full support behind Hillary the moment she did.

Let's do it again donate $3 directly to Hillary's campaign right now if you believe she's the best and most qualified person to be president (100% of your donation will go to her).

Plenty of women know a thing or two about being called ambitious, as much as they know about being told they're too brash, abrasive, or bossy when they act assertively. We also know scientifically that women are assumed to be less competent and trustworthy overall than men, regardless of their experience.

I don't need to rehash Hillary Clinton's 40 years of experience fighting for women and families, or why she's absolutely qualified to be our president and commander-in-chief.

But while this kind of language is all too familiar when it's used to describe someone running to be the first woman president, it is a surprise when it comes from Democrats in our own party.

And it deserves a response.

Donate $3 to Hillary today 100% of your donation will go directly to her campaign:


Thanks for having Hillary's back,

Stephanie Schriock
President, EMILY's List

1. Politicing at it's most loathsome.
