The glorious purge begins. They thought they had a front row seat for the new boss. Instead they're finding themselves under the bus.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major overhaul of the party's organization, which has been stung by recent crises — and the DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers.
Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and they had been alerted 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 post-election layoffs in December.
Forget the spin.
The Clintons layered the DNC and a whole lot of organizations with their people. Now Obama has taken over the DNC. And Clintonites are being handed a mass purge. One mob is out. The new mob is in. All that means is that any plans for Chelsea Clinton have a new barrier. Aside from her own general unfitness.
The DNC isn't being cleaned up. Instead we will likely find that it will be even more closely integrated with Obama's OFA and that it will financially benefit Obama Inc. the way that the DNC benefited Hillary Inc. And all this will further clear the Clintons out of politics.
