She didn’t even have time to get the “Et tu” out:
The controversial chair of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, announced she would resign at the end of her party’s convention this week, a victim of her toxic relationship with peers and a trove of embarrassing internal emails.
“Going forward, the best way for me to accomplish those goals [of winning the presidency for Hillary Clinton] is to step down as Party Chair at the end of this convention,” Wasserman Schultz said in a written statement. “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.”
Donna Brazile, a Democratic Party stalwart, will serve as interim chair. Brazile, who briefly served as chair in 2011, is a CNN contributor, and must forgo that contract to take the reins of the DNC. And she’s still subject to a party vote this week in Philadelphia.
President Barack Obama paid tribute to her in a statement: For the last eight years, Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has had my back. This afternoon, I called her to let her know that I am grateful.”
Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton also issued a statement: “I am grateful to Debbie for getting the Democratic Party to this year’s historic convention in Philadelphia, and I know that this week’s events will be a success thanks to her hard work and leadership. There’s simply no one better at taking the fight to the Republicans than Debbie.”
The Berners got their scalp, so we can hopefully expect less madness this week.
LOLOLOLOL who the fuck am I kidding. They’re probably already bitching she didn’t resign effective today. I see you all felt very strongly about Nina Turner. So Castro is who you all like?
