Debbie Wasserman Schultz just can’t seem to get away from the horrible news coverage surrounding her.
Today, the Tampa Bay Times reported that a liberal group with ties to liberal firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren is targeting Wasserman Schultz for her attempting to block reforms put forth by President Obama. Wasserman Schultz’s primary opponent, who has recently gained national attention following Bernie Sanders’ endorsement of his campaign, has also highlighted Wasserman Schultz’s actions.
What’s more, CNN has reported that Democratic senators are discussing whether to remove Wasserman Schultz from her position as Democratic National Committee Chairwoman as they fear she has become “‘too toxic’ in the ongoing Democratic civil war.'”
The following sentiments were expressed by anonymous sources privy to the discussion:
Senior Senate Democratic aide: “There is a lot of sentiment that replacing her would be a good idea. It is being discussed quietly among Democratic senators on the floor, in the cloakroom and in lunches.”
Senior Senate Democratic aide: “There’s a strong sentiment that the current situation is untenable and can only be fixed by her leaving. There’s too much water under the bridge for her to be a neutral arbiter.”
“Pro-Clinton” Democratic Senator: “There have been a lot of meetings over the past 48 hours about what color plate do we deliver Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s head on… I don’t see how she can continue to the election. How can she open the convention? Sanders supporters would go nuts.”
Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s record of late has been anathema to the liberal base of the Democrat Party, and her actions as DNC Chair have proven extremely harmful to Democratic unity. With enemies across the entire spectrum of the Democrat Party, it is unforeseeable how Wasserman Schultz can be an effective leader going forward.
