DNC Members Want Wasserman Schultz to “Go Away”

DNC Members Want Wasserman Schultz to “Go Away”

“This adds to Debbie being rebranded as the Democrats’ disastrous destruction.”

The last 14 months or so have not been kind to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. First the DNC had emails leaked, which led to her losing her position as chairwoman.

Then she caught fire when she kept IT aide Imran Awan on her payroll even after the FBI placed him under an investigation for stealing equipment and breaching the House IT system. She didn’t fire him until officials arrested him on bank fraud charges.

Now her party wants nothing to do with her. Some members spoke to Politico and put their names on their statements.

Democrat Frustration

Politico contacted other people, but noticed the responses showed that “Wasserman Schultz has become such a polarizing figure in her own party.” A lot of her former allies had a hard time saying “and kind words about her or explain how and why she got into this latest jam.” Politico continued:

“We wish she would go away and stop being so public by doubling down on negative stories,” said Nikki Barnes, a progressive DNC member from Florida, who believes Wasserman Schultz left the national party “in shambles” while chair, culminating with the hack of DNC servers and the release of embarrassing internal emails by WikiLeaks in the 2016 campaign. As for Wasserman Schultz’s defense, Barnes said “none of this makes sense. It doesn’t sound like racial profiling … there must have been something for her.”

To Democrats like the DNC’s Barnes, it’s a distraction the party can ill afford.

“Everything that’s going on right now is taking away from what success we’re seeing in the grass-roots movement. No one’s talking about the people’s platform or hearing our good news because the headlines are focused on Debbie, her misplaced laptop and consequences,” Barnes said.

Barnes insisted to Politico that this scandal harms the Democratic Party even more, which is what they don’t need right now. After failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lost in November, the party spun into complete chaos.

Plus, as I blogged earlier, the DNC continues to lose funding left and right. The party doesn’t need more problems:

“This adds to Debbie being rebranded as the Democrats’ disastrous destruction,” Barnes said. “Those of us on the DNC know we have to rebrand ourselves and earn the people’s trust. And unfortunately Debbie’s name does not scream trust. It screams power. It screams limited access. It screams WikiLeaks now. DNC lawsuit. It screams a lot of negative things to the public. That’s not how we want to rebrand ourselves.”

The former mayor of Minneapolis agreed:

“Debbie Wasserman Schultz is still a national figure, but unfortunately for her it’s because so many people around the country see her as playing a devastatingly bad role in the last election,” said R.T. Rybak, the former mayor of Minneapolis and former DNC vice -chair who clashed with Wasserman Schultz. “I can mention her name in Minneapolis and it gets a viscerally negative reaction, and I’ve found that to be the case in other parts of the country, too. Sadly, I think she deserves the negative reputation.”

People saw her change when she became chairwoman because the “power went to her head” and all the “mounting criticism then made her paranoid.”

Things got bad in Florida when “she picked an explosive fight with top Democratic donor and trial lawyer John Morgan after she trashed his popular medical-marijuana initiative, seemingly without cause.” He retorted:

“In politics, you’re as strong as your friends. And she doesn’t have as many as she used to. And that’s her fault,” Morgan said.

Those on Capital Hill Just as Frustrated

Last week, I blogged how people in Congress have started to pressure Wasserman Schultz to testify why she kept Awan employed even after the FBI started its investigation.

Sources told The Washington Free Beacon that her “refusal to answer questions” and continual payment to Awan “may merit her resignation.” Congressional leaders have even asked the Capital Police for an a formal briefing into its investigation:

Leading members of Congress are growing frustrated with the pace of the criminal investigation and have moved to conduct their own independent probe into the scandal, according to multiple sources who indicated that the relevant congressional committees are making moves to start an investigation, which could include compelling testimony from Wasserman Schultz, who has been accused of stonewalling on the issue.

As more information about the nature and scope of the IT staffers’ collection of privileged congressional information becomes public, lawmakers are seeking to immediately begin their own investigation into the situation.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a member of the House Oversight Committee and chair of its National Security Subcommittee, formally requested a briefing from the Capitol Police on Tuesday, telling the Free Beacon that the situation amounts to “one of the all-time congressional scandals in the last 30 years.”

DWS…the gift that keeps on giving

As bad as it sounds, all is not lost for the Dimocrat Party.

I just saw on Twitchy.com that Barack the Brave will soon be riding in on his rainbow unicorn to rebuild the party.

Or finish it off. Which ever comes first.

    little barry believes his own press.
    The rest of the planet sees him as the schumck he is.

      Well, lets be honest here…the rest of the planet that still contains the ability to rub 2 or more brain cells together. Sadly there is still a sizeable contingent of people who believe he is the black baby jesus (who all share the same trait…one or less brain cells).

So why did her personal physician commit suicide recently?

“The last 14 months or so have not been kind to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.”
Considering that she should by all rights be in a Federal prison, those 14 months have been indulgent toward her.

We all want her to “go away,” but we mean slightly different things: the dems want her to retire, but we want her in prison.

Wearing an oramge pantsuit with prison ID numbers stitched above the right pocket and bunking with Hillary for the rest of her life would be good enough for me.

I wonder where somebody like DW-S would fit in the future Democratic party.

She’d probably be OK if it remains a business-as-usual corruptocrat’s club. But that incarnation of the Party may be nearing the end of its useful lifetime.

If it goes all neo-socialist totalitarian Bernie Baby, there’s little place for her.

Ditto if it goes all divide-and-conquer “rainbow coalition” of blacks/Mexican invaders/Muslim terrorists/feminists/sexual deviates—anybody except whities and Asians. What role could she play in such a Party? Guillotine warm-up, maybe.

From her hair it is obvious that she does not use a union made UL approved vibrator.

I never understood why that lightweight ever became Chair of the DNC.

My alter-ego at HuffPo is thrashing the Dems for being sexist. Lambasting them for cowering behind their male privilege. DWS is a remarkable woman of character and integrity who has accomplished too many things to list here. We should run her for President in 2020.

You guys should get in on it, is much fun 🙂

Back on this side of the mirror… I haven’t enjoyed a fall from grace this much since that putz Anthony Weiner got busted texting his junk. Obnoxious little weasel every time a camera was pointed in his face.

Amazed at how corrupt these people are. Without an ounce of shame. I wonder what the Paki IT guys are blackmailing her over? Must be really naughty stuff.

“Rebrand ourselves and earn the people’s trust”

Sure. Just like when Comcast started calling themselves Xfinity. Or when liberals rebrand as progressives. Or when progressives rebrand as liberals. Global Cooling. Global Warming. Climate Cbange. Climate Chaos.

My tribe on the right may be full of cowards who value Civility over Liberty, but at least they are stupid like yours, DNC.

    They are upset that DWS is interfering with their attempts t rebrand themselves by publicly showing the true face of the Democratic Party ….

are NOT stupid, lol.

No, please stay, Debbie! A real life cartoon, with transparent motivations, contempt for the American people, and intellect on par with a box of rocks.

What if the DNC leaks were all because of WS;s IT guys?

Lucky we have a special prosecutor looking in to this don’t we? Im sure he will get to the bottom of everything.

I can’t wait until the Trumper gives Obama a nick name! Any suggestions out there about what would be a great nick name for Ole Barack baby?
