Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is accusing the Democratic National Committee and the New York Times of essentially hijacking democracy.
Her latest criticism follows a new article published by the Times this week, which profiles her as a presidential candidate backed by many right-wing voters. [RELATED: BOOM! Project Veritas Drops Long-Awaited CNN Exposé]
The piece is titled: “What Exactly is Tulsi Gabbard Up To?” It also has a sub-headline citing alt-right internet personalities, white nationalists, and Russians all praising Gabbard’s bid for the White House.
The 2020 hopeful took to Twitter with her criticism, saying the Times article is a “greatest hits smear piece.” She also reminded supporters the Times would be the so-called neutral questioners of the upcoming presidential primary debate.

In an interview with The Hill this week, the congresswoman claimed the DNC and its “corporate media partners” are trying to hijack the election process away from voters. She said the DNC is trying to hold its own election through pseudo-polls, fundraising numbers, and by blocking voters from hearing from all the candidates.
Her comments came after announcing she’s considering boycotting the Tuesday debate.
“The influence of the rich and powerful and the corporate special interests are rampant, and this is the result that we’re seeing is an election process…that does not serve the interests of voters, for their own interest,” she stated.

Gabbard faces a fight to keep her congressional seat back in Hawaii, which will be up for grabs if she continues vying for the Democrat nomination.
