Brazile, who joined the show’s panel, criticized Bloomberg’s support of stop-and-frisk policies which disproportionately targeted people of color in New York, saying it has taken him years to apologize for it.
“He has the resources, but I’m very uncomfortable with his record,” she said.
Bloomberg has been gaining in national polls, coming in third in last week’s Morning Consult survey, but backlash against his record has stepped up in the last week.
A recording surfaced of the former mayor defending stop and frisk in 2015, saying that “95 percent” of “murders and murderers and murder victims” are male minorities between 16 and 25 years old.
