Bernie Sanders has suspected for months that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was rigging the election against him and in Clinton’s favor. This started months ago when Sanders’ campaign sued the Democratic National Committee in federal court after the party organization withheld the campaign’s access to a crucial voter database. Now, months later Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, announced her decision to resign Sunday amid controversy over leaked emails that exposed the DNC’s underhanded efforts to stifle Sen. Bernie Sanders’ popularity during the primary.
Her resignation will become effective at the end of the convention, where she had already been stripped of her prime-time speaking role as calls for her to step down grew louder over the weekend.
Wasserman Schultz had faced pressure to leave the DNC since Friday, when a massive leak of internal documents suggested DNC officials had conspired to attack Sanders on his religion ahead of primaries in West Virginia and Kentucky. Her stewardship of the party has been under near-constant fire throughout this primary season, with supporters of Sanders smelling collusion long before WikiLeaks released stolen DNC emails.
Is her resignation enough or should she face prosecution?
