DWS will continue to push the corrupt brand of politics she perfected as DNC chair. On July 22, Wikileaks released 20,000 DNC emails, exposing DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC staff of sabotaging Bernie Sanders’ campaign. In the wake of the fallout, Wasserman Schultz formally resigned from her position asDNC chair, only to be replaced by another Clinton surrogate, DNC vice chair Donna Brazile.
Rather than allowing Wasserman Schultz’s career to go down with her resignation, Clinton has awarded Wasserman Schultz a new role as honorary chair to the Clinton campaign’s 50-state program. “There’s simply no one better at taking the fight to Republicans than Debbie—which is why I am glad that she has agreed to serve as honorary chair of my campaign’s 50-state program to gain ground and elect democrats in every part of the country, and will continue to serve as a surrogate for my campaign nationally, in Florida, and other key states,” Clinton announced.
Wasserman Schultz, who also served as Clinton’s 2008 campaign co-chair, should be banned from the Democratic Party for overtly violating the DNC Charter. Instead, she has been rewarded for rigging the Democratic primaries, with a new job where she can continue the corrupt brand of politics she perfected as DNC chair.
Of course, Wasserman Schultz’s resignation won’t serve as a catalyst for reform in the Democratic Party. By moving Wasserman Schultz to a different role within the party, her duties and authority will remain essentially the same.
