DNC Asks Entire Staff For Resignation Letters

Tyler Durden's picture

Former Labor Secretary Tom Perez, who took over as the chair of the Democratic National Committee in late February following Hillary's stunning November defeat, has asked for his entire staff to submit their resignation letters by no later than April 15th.

Of course, the move comes after a series of scandals plagued the DNC throughout the 2016 election cycle, including rather undeniable evidence that former Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz intentionally undermined the campaign of Bernie Sanders while her replacement, Donna Brazile, seemingly did the same by passing Hillary's team debate questions in advance of Town Hall discussions with Bernie. 

According to NBC, Tom Perez decided to clean house at the DNC shortly after taking over the leadership role from Donna Brazile and will use the mass firing as an opportunity to restructure how the party will be run going forward. 

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major reshuffling of the party's organization that has been stung by recent crisis — and the DNC has requested the resignation letters of all current staffers be submitted by next month.


Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and staffers were alerted earlier to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC's headquarters from scratch. Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of layoffs in December.


Immediately after Perez' election in late February, an 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.

Back in late February, Perez appeared on Meet the Press to tell Chuck Todd that he would look to implement a "culture change" at the DNC before comparing his own party to a busted plane traveling at 20,000 feet.

Perez has spent his first weeks on the job in "active listening mode," hearing from Democrats in Washington and in small group meetings across the country before making any big moves.


"What we're trying to do is culture change," he told NBC News between stops of a listening tour in Michigan Friday. "We're repairing a plane at 20,000 feet. You can't land the plane, shut it down, and close it until further notice."


"If your goal is you have to please everyone then you end up pleasing no one," he added.


We're still awaiting confirmation from Rachel Maddow that this mass firing came after the discovery that the DNC was infiltrated by Russian spies coordinating with the Trump campaign.

This is also known as a coup by the non-whites inside the Democratic Party.

The first step on the road to recovery is admitting you have a problem. One wonders if they actually know what the problem is. Might just be switching meth for heroin here.

"GET THE FUCK OUT, whitey."

Some of the ultra a$$holes should refuse to resign like that NY prosecutor who refused. Think that the "news" will make a big deal out of it? LOL!

All the crackas have to go. The DNC only represents "the oppressed" [aka, the entitled affirmative action peeples].

The Dem honkeys will have to move over to the RNC or attempt to stay with the DNC but MUST ... self-identify as a dindu with dredlocks, drive a purple Escalade, enroll in neighborhood gang banging, nightly shootouts, and hip-hop muzik....and apply fo' welfare and swear a hatred for the American middle class.

What a great idea! Trump should do the same with the entire federal government, and thank Perez for the inspiration.

The Democratic Party is in the process of eating its own tail to oblivion. It's all over, except for the corpse hitting the floor. One of the better results in this process is that the many pustules of liberalistic scum are concentrating and encysting themselves into cancers which can be excised quickly. Whatever replaces it will be sure to not allow these lunatics to be involved in any way, shape or form lest the new corpus again becomes a corpse in quick fashion.

at least it is still just forced resignation, unless you are too close to a clinton, for now.  9 grains coming to future purges soon.

2016 were the last elections anyway. October 2017 is the 100th Golden Jubilee Centennial of the Red Bolshevik slaughter of 40,000,000 Orthodox Christians, and Trump, his entire family, and FED-MIC are the reincarnation of these New Red Bolsheviks who already pushed 95,000,000 American Christians onto the streets. Do yourself a favor. Take a health day off from work, head downtown, and just walk around. If it's a nice day and you have comfortable shoes, you can probably walk 10 miles of city streets. On every block, every block, you will find 10 homeless people, and that's the day shift. What's Trump or Mnuchin done for them? That's right. Nothing. He cut their healthcare, and Congress is gonna impose a $30 trillion debt-ceiling, more than the value of all real property and savings in USA. Then it's game over. Then it's perpetual debt serfdom. Then all the health and human services spending that MIC hasn't already consumed, will be diverted into interest-only payments to the Private Fed Bank of Red Bolshevism. You think the Pentagon is gonna 'defend' America? 'When the end of the Nation comes, it won't be from outside, but from inside.' And with Trump, that End is already here.

Trump's been in office less than 100 days, and doesn't even have his full cabinet approved yet.  But it's all his fault.

As of 3/27/2017, XYTHRAS has been banned.  Chronic spammer XYTHRAS has "reincarnated" in a Truth-in-Advertising new handle as "TrollAndDump."

3/28:  "TrollAndDump"  is now "blue fin"


Take a minute and write to abuse@zerohedge.com and ask that this SICK, SPAMMING FREAK SHOW of a TOXIC DUMPSTER FIRE who suffers from a serious case of SPAMMING COMPULSIVE BEHAVIOR and request that  "blue fin"  "TrollAndDump" and "XYTHRAS" be permanently banned for chronic spamming

You're going to need to purchase a new domain name and repoint it, in order to avoid getting all these fucking accounts banned, dude.  We're onto your shenanigans.

Pay ZH for advertising if that's your goal.  Quit it with the spam.  It is not welcome, not by me, or many others here.

RE:  Spammer Mano-a-Mano, Kavlar (the same person):

You have NO IDEA how troubled this individual, the Spammer With One Hundred Log-ons, really is.  He has trolled and spammed his website crap on here forever, always with the same macabre conversations with a long series of "imaginary playmates." It really is quite perverse and whoever "he" is, he seems to really get his rocks off voting himself up arrows and replying to his own comments, and also appears to have no life beyond making off-topic comments with his link to the SPAM-, TROJAN-, VIRUS-INFESTED  "biblicisminstitute,wordpress,com"

He shares this pathology with TrollAndDump (formerly known as XYTHRAS - since banned) whose "dailywesterner,com" is, if anything WORSE than the biblicism fetishist, also SPAM-, TROJAN-, VIRUS-INFESTED.

Other ZHers  may wish to take one minute to send an email to abuse@zerohedge.com requesting that all of the "imaginary friends" (in the list below; copy and paste)   be permanently banned for spamming.

As you do that, use your imagination to try to conceive of what type of whackadoo would spend their life in pajamas, eating stale chips and drinking cheap soda from the dollar store, popping zits, and spamming zerohedge. 

Many of the following have been banned but, like crabs and cockroaches, they just seem to come back.  The "short list of imaginary playmates" includes:

Yippee Kiyay

King Tut

As much as I understand that this will end in a disaster of one variety or another, this is the first time I've agreed with a decision of a Demoncrap as far back as I can remember.

If they clean out and kick out the leftist fanatics; then they're on the correct road.

If they up the fanaticism level with new recruits; it's Trump for the win in 2020.

It really doesn't matter,  if the same big money donors still give to the DNC nothing has changed. 

swmnguy's picture

I disagree with you, but I wonder if it's a matter of definitions.

I don't think the Democratic Party has nearly enough ACTUAL leftists.  I think America is well to the Left of what conventional wisdom would say.  But the Corporatists have done a good job draining words of their meanings.

When I talk about Left, I don't mean the media-friendly Identity Politics so beloved of the corporatists.  Those separate people and divide them, promoting competing interests among the serfs.  I'm talking about economic issues.  Why is it so damn hard to make a decent living on a full-time job?  Where is all the money going from this supposed "recovery"?  Where did all the money go from the "productivity" revolution?

If the Democrats were to pick up on those issues, they'd have a landslide in 2018, never mind 2020.

But they won't.  They'll stick with the Clintonian "triangulation," pander to their corporate paymasters, bump up the silly-ass Identity Politics nonsense spearheaded by coastal twenty-somethings who've never experienced more pressing problems, and fail utterly.

I respectfully disagree.  Let's call it the politics of blackmail.

What does every government fear most?  Popular rebellion.

How do you stop the pops from rebbing?  Bread and circuses.

So we have now the organized voice of the "Pay us not to destroy you" class.

As long as the Clintons, and their minions, are at the top of the party; they will need someone "worse" than Trump if they have any hope of winning next time.

The Podesto email and the Pied Piper Strategy...the press focus on the R candidate that has no chance of winning...they thought it was Trump...LOL!

Another failure on Hillary's "Gold Plated Resume"...more like blood soaked resume.

Not to be a party pooper (heh) but this is standard operating procedure for many organizations during a 'restructuring'.

Most or possibly all will be allowed to stay.  Sometimes people have to reapply for their own jobs but not usually. 

Perez can kick out a few, or a lot if he chooses.  But.......this isn't really that big of a deal.

Standard practice agreed and completly demoralizing and soul destroying for those who remain. Seen it happen.  Nastiest thing that could happen.

It's funny, it would not be that hard to develop a bot (I already have one) that could read the comments every minute, and when an account pops up that points to one of the known spammer sites, it auto-blocks the account and alerts an admin that it happened.

Alternatively, it could trigger the Miserable Member module: https://www.drupal.org/project/misery

I've suggested via the abuse email that Tyler deputize some of the readers here to termnate accounts and/or have the Posting code filter for known bad websites and deny the Post originating based on said content. Would really clean up all the crap we see.


Relax. All of these DNC trolls will have no time on their hands for spamming while they are looking for work, or signing up for EBT cards.

Under this guy the DNC is going total anti-white.

Whites were fools to stay with the Dems all will be fired now.

Let them try and get government jobs, no chance for whites anymore.

Congrats, you won your own suicide brainwashed acid heads!

Thank Wavy Gravy and your hippie professors.

Thank the CIA too for creating the 60s and the Frankfurt School Jews who started it all including MKULTRA which was applied to generations in all white nations.
