Bernie wins: Sanders campaign gets data access back

Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign announced that it regained access to crucial voter data shortly before midnight Friday night.

The Democratic National Committee had suspended that access because at least one Sanders aide had inappropriately viewed data belonging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, but backed down shortly before a federal judge was to hear an emergency injunction filed by the Sanders campaign.

"We are extremely pleased the DNC has reversed its outrageous decision to take Sanders' data," said Sanders campaign Jeff Weaver in a statement. "Clearly they were very concerned about their prospects in court."

The moves comes only after the Clinton campaign sharply contested Sanders' version of events, accusing the democratic socialist's supporters of stealing their data and then fundraising off the ensuing controversy once caught.
