    DNC Fires Three Top Officials

    DNC Fires Three Top Officials

    In today’s edition of “Democrats in Disarray”

    It was bound to happen. Massive data breech, emails that sure do look like the DNC favored Hillary over Bernie, astronomical debt, a contentious, unified convention — someone was going to lose their job.

    Prior to the Democratic National Convention, Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz resigned in disgrace after Wikileaks posted more than 19,000 hacked DNC emails. Post-convention, even more heads are rolling.

    The DNC’s Chief Executive and two other top officials resigned today.

    The AP reports:

    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.

    Earlier, party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned her position and, after being booed at a pre-convention appearance last week in Philadelphia, chose not to speak from the convention stage.

    Longtime Democratic operative Donna Brazile is serving as the party’s interim chair. Brazile said Tuesday that she has created a “transition team” to help prepare the party for its post-election mission. She said Tom McMahon, a former DNC executive director under then-Chair Howard Dean, will lead that group.

    Clinton operatives who moved over to party headquarters after she had effectively secured the nomination in June will continue in their roles; that group includes DNC chief of staff Brandon Davis. Additionally, veteran Democratic strategist Doug Thornell will serve as an interim senior adviser to the party.

    Dacey already has a new job. She has been hired by Squared Communications, a Democratic consulting firm based in Washington.

    “As one of the top campaign strategists in our party, and with our experiences together on presidential, Senate and congressional campaigns, Amy will help our firm’s clients navigate this and future election cycles,” Michael Meehan, founder and CEO Squared Communications, said in a statement.

    You stated Paul Nehlen had no chance. You declared Ryan would win in a walk. Sounds pretty much to me you’ve written Paul Nehlen off. Did you send him any of your pile you’ve bragged about?

    You’re Sideshow Bob on the Simpsons. You think you’re the smartest man in the room but you continually step on rakes.

      2ndWind: Like what you’re doing, yet syntax can mean everything when replying on blogs structured like this one. Using the “Reply” button when actually replying works wonders in tying your response to “whom-so-every” you’re responding.

      So, 2ndWind, when you’re on target, fire for effect; else, shots off range, hitting wind, mostly.

      Your target needs to understand that between him and his alter ego, Miller’s Home, he’s working hard to destroy the very fine blog built by our host; as though Ragspierre gives a rip; poor fool probably knows his own blog would have zip readers, so he hijacks a great one.

      Oh, geeeeeez…!!!

      How embarrassing for you T-rump sucking myrmidons. You didn’t get the memo.

      Now you have to reverse positions to keep up with your little yellow god.

      Don’t do yourself an injury. Ya morons…

        Jeez, all those ever flowing stream of Ad hominems drooling down onto your raggedy ass clothes. Little wonder that your small teeny bit of brain cannot respond without resorting to your usual bitter, obscene, irrelevant invective. Rags, grow a pair and start your own blog, you and your buddy can shout verbally at each other; or, perhaps it will be a love fest of mutual admonishment.

        To quote that well known old philosopher: “What a Maroon;” the phrase that describes Ragsalot perfectly!

        Look, the sky is blue! Drum roll.

    Your grammar is slipping, along with your addled mind, too much drool mixed with your personal invective and increased use of casual Ad hominem phrases; “communicate with my, now…” What? You “my” is what? Jeez, slow down, kluntz.

    OBTW: When you came after me, you deserved this! Ragsalot Punk!
