The fact that DWS resigned is a clear sign that there's some truth. If the messages were altered, then the only way to counter that would be to publish all the original messages as fast as possible and let people decide.

Of course it would be painful to publish internal communication but the damage of having false info out there would be worse. And if the messages published by Wikileaks were altered then it would cause Wikileaks to get discredited enough to lose any significance.

I think that the Democrats will lose if Hillary is nominated while they will wake up to a bad hangover combined with a possibility to win if Bernie is nominated. I think that the people supporting Hillary have it easier to accept Bernie than the other way around.

Realize that the super delegates still haven't had their final say, even though they so far have endorsed Hillary.

Not that I have much hope, and if now Hillary is nominated then Bernie supporters will spread out to many different independent candidates which will weaken the party.

Submission + - Almost Half of All TSA Employees Have Been Cited for Misconduct

schwit1 writes: Almost half of all TSA employees have been cited for misconduct, and the citations have increased by almost 30 percent since 2013.

Of the total allegations filed, 90.8 percent were against TSA officers, while 4.8 percent were filed against managers or administrators. Of the areas of misconduct, “Attendance & Leave” sees the highest number of offenders, while “Failure to Follow Instructions,” “Screening & Security,” “Neglect of Duty,” and “Disruptive Behavior” round out the top five.

It also appears that the TSA has been reducing the sanctions it has been giving out for this bad behavior.
