In wake of scandals, DNC asks all staffers to quit

In wake of scandals, DNC asks all staffers to quit

The move comes about a month after former Labor Secretary Tom Perez was elected as the new chairman of the DNC, following a disappointing election and tumultuous campaign involving Russian hacking into their computer system. Previous year saw the abrupt resignation of then-DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz as well as a presidential primary that many believed favored Hillary Clinton. Hinojosa praised DNC staffers for that work.

The makeover will nevertheless mark yet another period of tumult for the national party, which, throughout the 2016 election was rocked by scandal and plagued by leaks exposing divisions between its left-leaning and center-leaning wings.

The overhaul will be particularly welcome to progressives, who viewed the DNC under former chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz as biased in favor of Clinton and against Sanders. "I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party", Trump tweeted gleefully.

"What we're trying to do is culture change", [Perez] told NBC News between stops of a listening tour in Michigan Friday.

The committee, whose members were told they are not eligible for DNC jobs, is also reviewing the DNC's contracts with vendors and consultants, a source of complaints from many Democrats.

Also to be determined: The roles that new deputy chair Keith Ellison - the Minnesota congressman who narrowly lost the party's chair race to Perez - and other vice chairs will play.

Sanders' remarks echoed what Perez wrote when he announced his candidacy for Democratic chair in a Mic exclusive.

The report cited "multiple sources familiar with the party's internal working" when it stated that Leah Daughtry, an adviser to disgraced outgoing chair Donna Brazile, made the request. NBC said Ellison's political director has been helping on staffing decisions in key departments.
