I’m starting a new open thread, with the hopes that our fearless LD is doing well after some surgery. Hope no one minds.
News is breaking that the DNC’s CEO and CFO have resigned. From
Democratic National Committee CEO Amy Dacey resigned Tuesday, sources with knowledge of the move confirm to POLITICO. Dacey is the first senior aide to depart in the wake of last week’s dump of hacked emails to WikiLeaks, though she follows the resignation of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz on the eve of the Democratic convention.
Other heads rolling at the DNC:
Also out are Communications Director Luis Miranda and Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall. Marshall has been heavily criticized after a mass hack of DNC emails revealed he had suggested questioning Sen. Bernie Sanders’ religion during his primary contest with Hillary Clinton.
The departures were formally announced in a Tuesday afternoon memo from new DNC head Donna Brazile, but news of Dacey’s resignation broke earlier in the day, before many people in the building had been alerted to her departure.
Dacey was quick to get another position at Squared Communications, a Democratic consulting firm based in Washington.
“As one of the top campaign strategists in our party, and with our experiences together on presidential, Senate and congressional campaigns, Amy will help our firm’s clients navigate this and future election cycles,” Michael Meehan, founder and CEO Squared Communications, said in a statement.

No apologies to Senator Bernie Sanders were made by Dacey or Miranda.
