The unprecedented 20k email leak of the DNC has left Debbie Wasserman Schultz in more than a bind on the eve of the Democratic National Convention. Even the Washington Post has accepted the authenticity of the emails (how could they not with such a large amount of data?) and is calling this Schultz’s worst week in Washington.
What’s worse for Debbie is Bernie Sanders saying flat out (for the what’th time now?) to CNN that she should resign as chairwoman:
“I don’t think she is qualified to be the chair of the DNC not only for these awful emails, which revealed the prejudice of the DNC, but also because we need a party that reaches out to working people and young people, and I don’t think her leadership style is doing that.”
Today, after two days of controversy surrounding the DNC emails, it was announced via Washington correspondent Jeff Zeleny’s Twitter account that Schultz would not be speaking at the convention, which is probably the worst possible thing that could have happened to her this entire election season — after all, she is the chairwoman of the party.
