The Hillary Clinton campaign leaks just keep dripping.

Wikileaks released the long list of Clinton VP picks other than Tim Kaine, which were divided into categories based on race, gender, wealth and profession.

The Washington Times reports:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign team considered naming Bill Gates or Melinda Gates as her nominee for vice president — two of nearly 40 names on the initial long-list submitted by campaign chief John Podesta, according to hacked emails released by WikiLeaks on Tuesday. Mr. Podesta broke the names down by what he called “food groups” — which appears to be his euphemism for the various demographic coalitions that make up Democrats’ electoral machine: Five Hispanic men, seven white men, seven black men, three former high-ranking military officers, nine rich people and seven white women senators. Sen. Bernard Sanders made the list at the very bottom, in his own category.

Here are the top Democrats who made the cut:

Javier Becerra

Amy Klobuchar

Julian Assange’s internet access might have been shut off in the Ecuadorian Embassy, but it doesn’t appear that Wikileaks is anywhere close to slowing down between now and Election Day.
