On Tuesday another Democrat official, Democratic National Committee CEO Amy Dacey, resigned in the growing fallout from the recent dump of hacked emails by WikiLeaks.
The leaks, which revealed a pattern of DNC operations working against the campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and in favor of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, already cost Debbie Wasserman Schultz her post as chair of the DNC.
Donna Brazile, who is serving as the interim DNC chair, has been in the DNC’s Washington, D.C., office since Monday to begin the rebuilding process.
With more resignations and dismissals expected to follow, the ability of the DNC to carry out its normal functions in an election year has already been impacted. Now, the Clinton campaign has moved to take over key parts of DNC operations, Politico reported. According to their reports, the DNC’s research department was moved to the Clinton campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters last month and rapid response responsibilities are being handled out of New York City as well.
Since resigning, Dacey has already been hired by Squared Communications, a Democratic consulting firm based in Washington.
As news of Dacey’s resignation emerged, many linked Clinton to the shady tactics revealed by Wikileaks.
