Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida congresswoman and former Democratic National Committee Chair.

Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz says she’s stepping down after the party convention this week.

The Florida Congresswoman would have led the Democratic National Convention this week, but instead was disgraced after emails linking her to a campaign against Senator Bernie Sanders were leaked by the WikiLeaks watchdog group.

The emails revealed the party leadership actively worked to defeat Sanders and support Hillary Clinton during the primary elections.

Sanders called for Wasserman-Schultz’s resignation, saying it was not the first time he had seen the system was corrupt.

Wasserman-Schultz was a no-show at a rules committee meeting on Saturday where she was to speak, nor was she listed to speak on any of the days of the convention this week in Philadelphia. It was later announced she would not lead the Democratic National Convention, but at best would introduce speakers — if that.

After growing calls for her resignation over the weekend, Wasserman Schultz said in a statement, “I know that electing Hillary Clinton as our next president is critical for America’s future,” Ms. Wasserman Schultz said in a statement published by the New York Times. “I look forward to serving as a surrogate for her campaign in Florida and across the country to ensure her victory.”

  1. I fear the anti- Semites will have a field day because of these two conventions. Every where I look Jews are in leading positions and fighting each other publicly. The latest democrat farce involving the e mails is an example. G-d please watch over our people. GUARD OUR COUNTRY, the world and especially Israel. Perhaps it is because of my holocaust back ground that I fear more anti-Semitism here and around the world.

    The Destruction of the Second Holy Temple

    The Second Holy Temple stood in Jerusalem for 420 years (349 BCE–70 CE). Unlike the period of the First Temple, when the Jews were for the most part autonomous, for the vast majority of the Second Temple era the Jews were subject to foreign rule: by the Persians, the Greeks, and eventually the Romans.
    Aside for the troubles caused by these external powers, the Jews were also plagued internally by tumultuous politics, and they divided into many factions—a phenomenon that ultimately led to the Temple’s destruction and our nation’s torturous exile.
    The destruction of the Temple, and the subsequent destruction of the national entity of the Jewish people, occurred to a great degree because of warfare among the Jews themselves. The warring groups besieged in Jerusalem destroyed all hopes of victory.
