Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner, a black man who was killed in a chokehold by a NYPD officer in 2014, is slamming Hillary Clinton’s campaign Thursday, over leaked emails from the server of John Podesta, the Democratic campaign chairman, which revealed email conversations about using her father's death to protest gun violence. In the email, he wrote:
“I know we have Erica Garner issues but we don’t want to mention Eric at all? 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.
After her tweets, she started responding to tweets of her supporters and people against her stance.
