After five long years of running the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is finally out as her party’s chairwoman.
We say she is finally out because it has appeared that throughout her tenure as DNC chairwoman, her days were numbered.
Read more about Wasserman Schultz’s past brushes with getting fired here.
Wasserman Schultz announced this weekend that she would resigning as chairwoman after Wikileaks published DNC emails in which she and other party committee staffers were caught red handed trying to sabotage the Bernie Sanders for President campaign.
“Going forward, the best way for me to accomplish those goals [which include electing Clinton president] is to step down as Party Chair at the end of this convention…”As Party Chair, this week I will open and close the Convention and I will address our delegates about the stakes involved in this election not only for Democrats, but for all Americans.”-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) (CNN)
Wasserman Schultz’s fall came in her response to an email sent to her by a DNC staffer, where the staffer told her that Bernie Sanders would not drop out of the presidential primary race against Hillary Clinton:
Spoken like someone who has never been a member of the Democratic Party and has no understanding of what we do.
Wasserman Schultz has also gone on record of calling Sanders’ Campaign Manager Jeff Weaver “scummy,” a “damn liar” and an “ass.”
But what quite possibly is the most damning of the leaked emails is the communication sent by DNC CFO Brad Marshall.
For KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in God. He had skated on saying he had a Jewish Heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference… My Southern Baptists peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.-DNC CFO Brad Marshall
Sanders echoed his concerns to all that would listen, saying that the DNC “was not running a fair operation” saying that what he “suggested to be true six months ago” actually “turned out to be true.”
Vice Chair Donna Brazile will act as interim chairwoman of the DNC
And of course there is Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s response to the news of ‘DWS’ resignation:
The highly neurotic Debbie Wasserman Schultz is angry that, after stealing and cheating her way to a Crooked Hillary victory, she’s out!
