DWS resignation comes amid the release of thousand of leaked emails showing DNC staffers favoring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the party's 2016 primary contest.
But this should be a surprise to nobody. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was Co-Chair of Hillary's 2008 Presidential campaign, and is a long time personal friend of the Clintons.. How could anyone think she wouldn't show bias?... Her stepping aside now is irrelevant. She achieved her objective of making sure nobody but Hillary Clinton gets near the Democrat nomination. To her, it's mission accomplished
PHILADELPHIA — Debbie Wasserman Schultz is resigning under pressure as Democratic Party chairwoman, a stunning leadership shakeup as party officials gather in Philadelphia to nominate Hillary Clinton.
Wasserman Schultz's announcement Sunday follows a firestorm over hacked emails suggesting the Democratic National Committee favored Clinton during the primary, despite pledging neutrality. The leaked emails prompted primary runner-up Bernie Sanders to call for Wasserman Schultz's immediate resignation.
In a statement, Wasserman Schultz said she will step down at the end of the four-day convention. She said she plans to formally open and close the convention, as well as address delegates.
