That WikiLeaks dump of Democratic National Committee emails happened as promised Friday. And one email allegedly shows DNC staffers plotting to attack Bernie Sanders' religious beliefs.
The message from May says, "He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. ... My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist."
Sanders isn't actually named in the email, but in May, he was the only candidate with a Jewish heritage from either party. It's also not really clear if he's even an atheist.
