Debbie Wasserman has officially been banned from speaking at the Democratic National Convention. The head of the Democratic National Committee will not “preside” over the party or have a “speaking role” at the convention, according to major media networks.
The DNC Rules Committee ruled on Saturday that Wasserman would no longer be allowed to take part in the convention because of the recently leaked emails from DNC leaders. Those emails contained information that proved that the DNC plotted against the Sanders campaign for the last year.
Sanders called for Wasserman to resign after the emails came to light, emails like the one below:
According to CNN:
“The DNC Rules Committee on Saturday rescinded Wasserman Schultz’s position as convention chairwoman, instead naming Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, as permanent chair of the convention, according to a DNC source. She will gavel each session to order and will gavel each session closed, a role that had been expected to be held by Wasserman Schultz.”
After the meeting convened Saturday night, a top Democrat told a reporter that Wasserman had been “quarantined.” Wasserman has seen more media spotlight than any other DNC leader in history after Bernie Sanders called her out countless times for her less than moral actions while steering the committee, and her clear favoritism of Hillary Clinton.
Sanders says he was angry, but not shocked at the release of the emails because this is what he has been trying to say every time you heard the word “rigged” come out of his mouth. Wasserman’s attempts to further rig the convention have now been thwarted.
Media outlets are speculating that a resignation may be coming soon for the committee chairwoman, and this last leak of information may have been the nail in the coffin of Wasserman’s political career. One thing is for certain, Debbie Schultz Wasserman is a big reason Americans no longer trust the Democratic party.
