I can see her coming after us for leaving him out of the piece,” wrote Nick Merrill, a spokesman for the campaign.After the leak Erica wrote:”I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed ‘using’ Eric Garner… Why would you want to ‘use’ my dad,” tweeted Erica Garner.
Clinton staffer Maya Harris wrote that Garner should not be included as he was not killed by gun violence. “I’m glad you had Maya on your team to explain why you won’t be USING my dad in you f—–g gun violence piece… Black woman saved your a–” Garner tweetedAfter her tweets, she started responding to tweets of her supporters and people against her stance.
