Massive firing current flows within the DNC and we love that everyone’s gone!
Tom Perez, who serves as the new Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman is now taking matters into his own hands and asks for a complete restructuring within the DNC rows.
As the NBC News report states, Perez has asked every staffer to submit their resignation no later than April 15th:
Party staffs typically see 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’s selection as party chairman 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 workings…
“What we’re trying to do is a cultural change,” [Perez] 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.”
As a result, the new hiring process will bring in fresh minds into the DNC. This will be led by a Transition Advisory Committee, while complaints regarding this decision are expected to arrive any time now. Perez beat Rep. Keith Ellison for his current spot since Ellison was more thought to lean towards Bernie Sanders.
Furthermore, many staffers were fired from the DNC as a result of their Sanders notes, when they addressed his lack of faith. All of this was uncovered by Wikileaks’ surge of leaked emails.
