According to the Associated Press, the outgoing Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz revealed to a Florida newspaper she will no longer gavel the party’s convention which kicks off Monday.
“I have decided that in the interest of making sure that we can start the Democratic convention on a high note, that I am not going to gavel the convention,” the disgraced Schultz said.
Schultz was one of many DNC employees and members of the national media who was implicated in e-mails released by Wikileaks conspiring against the campaign of former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. The e-mails also referenced planting fake and inappropriate Craigslist adds on behalf of Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump.
