The WikiLeaks email scandal that embroiled the Democrats just before their convention caused DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to step down. Now it appears that hers was only the first of several heads to roll. The DNC’s CEO Amy Dacey resigned in disgrace earlier today, along with two lieutenants. From Politico:
Also out are Communications Director Luis Miranda and Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall. Marshall has been heavily criticized after a mass hack of DNC emails revealed he had suggested questioning Sen. Bernie Sanders’ religion during his primary contest with Hillary Clinton.
The departures were formally announced in a Tuesday afternoon memo from new DNC head Donna Brazile, but news of Dacey’s resignation broke earlier in the day, before many people in the building had been alerted to her departure.
