Last week Donna Brazile revealed excerpts from her tell-all book, in which she accuses Hillary Clinton and her campaign of seizing control of the Democratic National Committee prior to receiving the party nomination, and for stealing that party nomination away from Bernie Sanders. Later Brazile had to backpedal, admitting she did not have evidence to back all her claims. Now the former DNC interim chair is once more making accusations, on the eve of her book's release, and this time she's targeting Clinton's former aides and campaign manager Robby Mook.
In her book, Hacks, Brazile says Clinton's senior male aides exhibited enough sexist behavior toward her that she felt compelled to call them out during a conference call. She said, “Gentlemen, let’s just put our dicks out on the table and see who’s got the bigger one, because I know mine is bigger than all of yours.”
NEW: Donna Brazile Says She Faced Sexism From Top Hillary Clinton Aides. https://t.co/BmC6A7gOEC— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@Yashar Ali 🐘)1509985789.0
Her book releases today, on election day, which has numerous states and municipalities facing critical elections. Her timing is just as good as former FBI director James Comey on the eve of the presidential election last year.
The book is highly critical of Clinton’s former campaign manager Robby Mook, saying, “He had the habit of nodding when you are talking, leaving you with the impression that he has listened to you, but then never seeming to follow up on what you thought you agreed on.” But then she goes on to say that other times Mook was “warm and treated me with respect.”
Regarding Mook's top aides, who were all men: “The young men that surrounded Robby Mook ― and they were all men in his inner circle ― had mastered a cool and removed style of politics.” She neglects to mention in this passage that Mook’s chief of staff, campaign chief operating officer, communications director and rapid response director were all women.
One former Clinton aide read the excerpts and had this to say: “Given that she already had to walk back her claims about a rigged nomination and was caught buying into a right-wing conspiracy about Hillary’s health, I’m not sure how much more of this book people should take seriously.”
Hillary supporters have not been forgiving, while Bernie supporters seized the opportunity to further vilify Clinton and her ilk.

It was noted that Brazile admits to resorting to sexist behavior, to combat sexist behavior.

And someone else asked where the examples of sexist behavior, aside from Brazile's own admitted choice of words, are mentioned in the article.
But at least some people still believes Brazile.
