Pressure Rising for DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to Resign

Pressure Rising for DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to Resign

Who else could bankrupt their party and still have a job?

The McGlynn: In April of last year Ms. Wasserman-Schultz made the following statement:
“Secretary Clinton, I think is arguably one of the most qualified people—assuming she announces her candidacy—who have ever run for president. I was proud to support her in 2008. Of course, as DNC chair, I will neutrally manage our primary nomination contest, assuming we have one.”


She lied and continues to do so. Schultz didn’t count on Senator Bernie Sanders becoming a serious contender in the Democratic primaries. In response, Ms. Wasserman-Schultz has ceded her stance of neutrality to aid Hillary Clinton’s run for president.


Under Schultz The Democratic National Committee has amply demonstrated itself to be morally bankrupt – corrupt to the very core of its being.

Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has faced intense scrutiny over the past year, as Democrats have grown weary of her inability to recoup party losses in the House and Senate, and are tired of her blatant favoritism of Hillary Clinton.

This past week, a Democratic challenger to Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s congressional seat, Tim Canova, announced his candidacy. Mr. Canova, a Georgetown University Law Center graduate, served as a legislative aide to U.S. Senator Paul Tsongas. The New York-born Jewish-Italian is also a fervent Bernie Sanders supporter and according to his campaign website, in 2011 was “selected by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders to serve on an advisory committee on Federal Reserve reform.”

Calls for the resignation of Ms. Wasserman Schultz are rapidly increasing in both frequency and intensity. Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s most recent gaffe, accusing millennials of complacency on abortion rights, inspired progressive group Credo Action to petition for her resignation—reaching over 61,000 signatures so far.

‘In Congress, she has served as a pro-militarist and corporatist tool of the high bidders.’

Another group, Roots Action, has accumulated over 30,000 signatures in a separate petition. “In addition to her recent attempt to deny the Bernie Sanders campaign access to its own voter files, Wasserman Schultz has tried in other ways to minimize competition for her candidate, Hillary Clinton,” states the Roots Action petition. “In Congress, she has served as a pro-militarist and corporatist tool of the high bidders.”

MoveOn.Org has collected over 60,000 signatures, and Change.org has over 47,000 signatures calling for Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s resignation.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s weak leadership brings nothing but negative attention to the Democratic Party. Democrats must stop delaying the inevitable, and either fire Ms. Wasserman Schultz or push her to resign. She has essentially bankrupted the DNC during her tenure, and is unreliable in helping Democrats win congressional and senate elections. It is in the best interests of the party to rid itself of Ms. Wasserman Schultz as quickly as possible.
