Two Democratic operatives are out of a job after a controversial conservative activist released undercover footage showing discussions of "busing" in voters and inciting violence at Republican rallies.
Scott Foval, the national field director of Americans United for Change, was booted on Monday and Democracy Partners head Robert Creamer announced on Tuesday he was "stepping back" from efforts to elect Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
"I am unwilling to become a distraction to the important task of electing [Hillary] Clinton, and defeating Donald Trump in the upcoming election," Creamer said in a statement.
"It's a very easy thing for Republicans to say, Well, they're busing people in.' We've been busing people in to deal with you f----- a------- for fifty years and we're not going to stop now, we're just going to find a different way to do it," says Foval, who indicates using personal vehicles for each voter arouses less suspicion than busing in a large number of people from out of state at once.
"I mean honestly, it is not hard to get some of these a------- to pop off," Foval says. "It's a matter of showing up, to want to get into the rally, in a Planned Parenthood t-shirt. Or, Trump is a Nazi, you know? You can message to draw them out, and draw them to punch you."
