Coulter, a prolific New York Times bestselling author, will appear Sept. 17 at the Egan Center. The book release date is this Tuesday.

More than 100 Bernie Sanders supporters have sued the Democratic National Committee and its former chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for fraud.

The suit, which has been served on Wasserman Schultz and the DNC, says the Florida congresswoman made “knowingly made false statements and omissions” that undermined the 2016 Democratic primary process, while serving as the DNC chairwoman.

The case is now a class action lawsuit, and those who supported Sanders over Clinton can get involved at
