Sanders to backers: Don’t Boo

Bernie Sanders is urging his supporters to back his push for party unity behind Hillary Clinton — but it’s not clear his supporters are listening. The Vermont senator sent an email to his supporters Monday afternoon asking, as a “personal courtesy to me,” that they not protest or demonstrate on the floor of the Democratic National Convention. “Our credibility as a movement will be damaged by booing, turning of backs, walking out or other similar displays,” he wrote in the email. “That’s what corporate media wants. That’s what [GOP presidential nominee] Donald Trump wants.”

Bottom line: he’s a corporate man, doing what the man says.
