Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida congresswoman and Democratic Committee Chair

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been kicked out from leading the Democratic National Convention, the traditional role for the DNC chair, Fox News reported Sunday.

The move came after emails leaked by WikiLeaks revealed a bias in the party’s leadership during the primaries — which was supposed to be neutral — against Senator Bernie Sanders. The revelation prompted some 40 percent of his supporters to vow not to vote for Hillary Clinton at the polls in November.

The leaked emails supported earlier claims by Sanders and his supporters that the system was rigged in favor of Clinton.

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has maintained as well that the system was “rigged” against Sanders, and said so from the podium of the Republican National Convention during his speech accepting the nomination of his party last Thursday night.

The news was confirmed publicly shortly after noon on Sunday. She had not appeared at a rules committee meeting on Saturday, though she was slated to speak, nor did her name appear on a list of speakers for the convention.

  1. Bottom line: Israel can trust Israel. American Jewry is in decline. Evangelistic Christians more supportive of Israel than "modern" American Jewry. Traditional Jewish American pro-Israel organizations are still strong, but very little legacy to hand them down to. Blaming won't help.

  2. As embarrassing as this is for her, she has already embarrassed herself maximally with her shameful betrayal of her country ( USA) and her tribe ( the Jewish People) with her miserable, slobbering support of Obama's nefarious Iran nuclear giveaway.

  3. Great! She's been in Obama's pocket and now Hillary's and has been a nasty mouthpiece for them and her party. Not exactly honest, it's as if she's taken lessons from them both. Did you know her license plate reads "HRC"? I am not a Bernie advocate, but I think he was railroaded and I hope his crowd protests strongly. Now I hope she loses her seat in Congress. They don't need her.

  4. Quinton Kent, sad but most Jews will vote for Hillary Clintons, but this Jewish guy won’t, I wish my Jewish brothers and sisters would understand the Tanaka, and it’s not the democratic socialist liberal party, and since Hillary and Obama voted for the Iran nuclear disaster bill that put Jews and Israel in more danger that said a lone should had woke up every Jew but it won’t

  5. How many times have you heard someone has a Yiddisha Cup or a Goyisha Cup. Well Obama & Hillary (and Kerry) had Goyisha Cups when it came to Iran … They took the easy way out instead of assuring a permanent solid deal that assured Iran will never get nukes … and we had the stronger hand.
