Sen. Bernard Sanders’ campaign has reportedly accused Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton of violating the rules in Wednesday night’s Univision debate.

There are rules forbidding candidates to mingle with staff during breaks in the debate, the Weekly Standard reported. A photo tweeted by Fox News reporter Ed Henry apparently shows Mrs. Clinton doing just that.

Jeff Weaver, Mr. Sanders’ campaign manager, “told me photo circulating of @HillaryClinton w/staff during debate break violates DNC rules,” Mr. Henry wrote.

Mr. Henry followed up with a comment from Mrs. Clinton’s campaign.

“Candidates are not supposed to confer w staff during commercial breaks — Clinton aide Jen Palmieri told me she wasn’t aware of pic,” he tweeted.
