July 24, 2016 (PHILADEPHIA, PA) There is increasing pressure for Florica Congresswoman and Democratic Nattional Comitte to step down. The pressure is coming from multiple sides and is a consequence of leak by wiki leaks of DNC internal email that showed at the very least the DNC was not neutral during the primary season.
This is the rule in question:
“My first priority has always been serving the people of the 23rd district of Florida and I look forward to continuing to do that as their member of Congress for years to come. As the mother of my three amazing children and the Representative of Florida’s 23rd congressional district, I know that electing Hillary Clinton as our next president is critical for America’s future. I look forward to serving as a surrogate for her campaign in Florida and across the country to ensure her victory.
“Going forward, the best way for me to accomplish those goals is to step down as Party Chair at the end of this convention. As Party Chair, this week I will open and close the Convention and I will address our delegates about the stakes involved in this election not only for Democrats, but for all Americans. We have planned a great and unified Convention this week and I hope and expect that the DNC team that has worked so hard to get us to this point will have the strong support of all Democrats in making sure this is the best convention we have ever had.”
Her resignation is an attempt to quash dissent and also to quiet down the issues raised by the leak. It also puts questions on whether the Hillary Clinton Campaign will have DWS completly step off the stage and no longer be a distraction. Democrats are going to be tested. Also this is hardly the last we have heard of this.
Update, this statement was released by the Clinton campaign:
