Three top Democratic National Committee officials resign as fallout from the hacked emails continue
In the wake of the release of Democratic National Committee emails which showed the collusion between the party and Hillary Clinton Debbie Wasserman-Schultz stepped down in disgrace on the eve of the Democratic National Convention.
Today three more top officials have resigned in disgrace, here is more:
The chief executive of the Democratic National Committee and two other top officials have resigned in the wake of an email hack that embarrassed the party on the eve of its presidential nominating convention.
CEO Amy Dacey, chief finance officer Brad Marshall and communications director Luis Miranda left their jobs on Tuesday, the party said in a statement.
The resignations are the latest fallout from the hacked emails, which exposed an apparent lack of neutrality in the primary race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, with some party officials disparaging Sanders.
Marshall wrote the most explosive email, questioning Sanders’ Jewish faith and suggesting he could be portrayed as an atheist. He has apologized for the missive.
According to the story linked above Amy Dacey has already secured a new job working for a Democratic consulting firm but it will be interesting to see where the other two disgraced officials end up. My money is on Hillary Clinton finding spots for them on her campaign staff as a reward for a job well done–e.g. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
