Things don’t look good for the Democrat Party.
Even though Democrats pretend they have it all together, and contend Trump’s victory was just a “minor setback”, the latest staffing move at the Democratic National Committee tells a different story.
In fact, this latest move at the DNC proves what Republicans have been saying all along – the Democrat Party is on life support, and they might not be able to recover.
After scandal-ridden Debbie Wasserman Shultz was forced to resign over the hacked email controversy and her blatant favoritism of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, the Democrats were forced to lick their wounds and carry on.
But after Donald Trump crushed Hillary on election night, Democrats had a sheer meltdown.
And after a brutal DNC Chairman race, the reality of the chaos in the Democratic Party is finally coming to light.
Tom Perez, the new DNC Chairman, is the third person within the past year tasked with leading the DNC.
But Perez is so determined to change the culture at the DNC, he asked for the resignation of every single DNC employee.
This change comes after election layoffs already took place once Hillary lost in November.
And he’s only giving DNC employees one month to make it happen.
“Party staffs typically sees major turnover with a new boss, but the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC’s headquarters from scratch after staffing had already reached unusual low following a round of layoffs in December.
Immediately after Perez’ election in late February, a to adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party’s internal working.
A committee advising Perez on his transition is now interviewing staff and others as part of a top-to-bottom review process to help decide not only who will stay and who will go, but how the party should be structured in the future.
Major staffing and structure changes will be announced in coming weeks, one aide said.”
Attempting to downplay their party’s chaos, Democrats insist this is standard protocol, and happens after every transition.
But as The Hill reports, the DNC faced massive criticism over their failed leadership and inability to win elections.
The Hill reported:
“Democrats suffered a damaging loss in 2016, with Donald Trump’s stunning defeat of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the White House race and the party failing to recapture a majority in the Senate.
The DNC faced heavy criticism over the leadership of former Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), as well as the large role Clinton’s campaign had in running the party last year.
Earlier this month, Perez announced a transition committee that has been tasked with advising him on all aspects of that transition, including staffing.
And next month, the party’s unity commission will also begin work on recommendations for a slew of party issues, including changes to the nominating process as well as broader questions about how to reorganize the party structure to make it more competitive.”
With Republicans in charge, and Democrats undergoing a serious identity crisis, it looks like Republicans will continue to drive the nation’s policies.
