Pete Buttigieg's presidential campaign is being slammed for misuse of black leaders names.
The campaign falsely said that three prominent black figures in South Carolina supported his Plan for Black America.
In late October, Buttigieg's campaign released an article published in the HBCU Times praising the plan.
The campaign cited an open letter on behalf of three prominent South Carolina black leaders.
The letter was also signed by more than 400 Douglass Plan endorsers.
