Graphic representation: Case of severe mail ego


What should’ve been Hillary Clinton’s victory lap at the Democratic National Convention has been clouded by the Wikileaks release of a massive cache of Democratic National Committee emails, confirmed that the party was actively working against Bernie Sanders.

Also included in the cache were emails disparaging a black committee staffer’s name, homophobic slurs, and much more.

Needless to say, it’s all fodder for editorial cartoonists [as in today’s earlier post].

We begin with an offering from the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Steve Sack: Hillary’s pillory

A similar take from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Mike Luckovich: Confetti?

The FBI suspects Russian hackers were involved, as in this offering from the Arizona Republic:

Steven Benson: Hillary’s Red State bombshell

But Edward Snowden remains agnostic, tweeting that “If Russia hacked the #DNC, they should be condemned for it. But during the #Sony hack, the FBI presented evidence.”

The Philadelphia Daily News editorial cartoonist portrayed the first casualty of the attack in the forced resignation of the Democratic National Committee chair:

From the San Diego Union-Tribune, evidence in the emails depicted the former chair as actively working against Clinton’s rival, with a decisive result:

But Donna Brazile, her replacement as DNC chair, has been just as adamant in her opposition to Sanders, as revealed in an email Snowden Tweeted, with the message “Did the #DNC seriously just swap the Chair fired for anti-Sanders bias with a different anti-Sanders official?”:
