Erica Garner ripped on the Clinton campaign over emails about her father's death


Erica Garner, the daughter of NYC police chokehold victim Eric Garner, criticized the Hillary Clinton campaign in a series of tweets on Thursday after new campaign emails released by WikiLeaks showed the staff discussing the death of her late father. 

Clinton aide Maya Harris eventually put an end to campaign's discussion of using Garner by pointing out that he was not applicable when discussing gun violence because he was not killed by a gun. 

This email prompted Erica Garner to tweet, "I'm glad you had Maya on your team to explain why you won't be USING my dad in your f*****g gun violence piece... Black woman saved your ass."
