The DNC Has Asked All Of Its Staffers To Hand In Their Resignations

New DNC Chair Tom Perez seems prepared to make big changes to the committee, asking all staff at the Democratic National Committee to submit resignation letters by the end of April.

The party still is reeling from November's election defeat, and the mass resignations will allow Perez, who was elected party chairman in February, the party's third leader in a year, to remake party headquarters. A request for the resignation letters to be dated April 15 came shortly after Tom Perez was elected as the party's chair. The decision comes after a slew of electoral disasters for the Democratic Party, which Mr. Perez took over after internal threats against voting for Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison.

Democrats just couldn't capitalize on former President Obama's high favorability rating as Clinton's campaign lost to the least-liked candidate since polling began: Donald Trump.

Todd Fisher , Reynolds' son, organised the public memorial and shared family stories, bringing laughter and tears to the audience. He said: "The public is invited because that's how my mother would want it". "I'm calling it a show, not a memorial".

Perez told NBC News last Friday, "We're repairing a plane at 20,000 feet". Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (Fla.) rigged the 2016 presidential primary contest in favor of Hillary Clinton. "You can't land the plane, shut it down, and close it until further notice".

The committee, whose members were told they are not eligible for DNC jobs, is also reviewing the DNC's contracts with vendors and consultants, a source of complaints from many Democrats.

NBC News notes that Perez held a meeting with his deputy chair as well as Sanders, Schumer, and several others to flush out the roles of the DNC's five vice chairs.
