DNC Dumps Top Staff Over Emails

CEO, CFO and comms boss out!

In the wake of the email leak scandal that exposed top-party brass at the Democratic National Committee pushing for Hillary Clinton and against Bernie Sanders, the party is clearing house. DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to walk the plank during the convention; now Associated Press reports that top executives have been shown the door.

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.

Don't feel too bad for Dacey, though; she's already been hired by a top Democratic firm that provides advice to candidates, Squared Communications. 

A transition team is also being assembled and for now, Donna Brazile, a long-time party backroomer is leading the DNC as interim chair.
