(WWLP) – The Democratic National Committee has suspended Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign from accessing its voter database.

According to CNN, the campaign took advantage of a software error to access rival Hillary Clinton’s confidential voter information.

The D-N-C database holds information on voters nationwide. It’s gathered by different campaigns and separated by a firewall, which was dropped briefly on Thursday.

That’s when the data was allegedly accessed. According to the Sanders team, one staffer has been fired.
