I've been writing for years and years that Debbie Wasserman Schultz should never have been made the head of the DNC and for the way she operated in Florida before being tapped for the post.

She hasn't been long for the job, especially after the complaints lodged by Bernie Sanders today, but after the release of the hacked emails of the DNC by Comrade Trump's friends, her tenure has came to an abrupt end at the Philly convention.

Our webmaster, Jamie heard CNN report this and now Fox News is reporting the same.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been ousted from her convention role, Fox News has confirmed, after leaked emails indicating an anti-Bernie Sanders bias inflamed the left flank of the party.

Fox News has learned she will not preside over the convention set to kick off Monday.

Sanders will be joined Monday night on stage at the Wells Fargo Center by first lady Michelle Obama and several other speakers, according to the Democratic National Committee.

Wasserman Schultz was nowhere to be found, however, on the list released by the DNC. And CNN reported that Wasserman Schultz would in fact not have a speaking role in Philadelphia, either.A Democratic source told the network that she had been “quarantined.”

UPDATE I: I was a little ahead of myself earlier today, but it appears that DWS is under enormous pressure to resign.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz faced intense pressure Sunday to resign her post and was meeting with party honchos about her future, several Democratic leaders told CNN, urging her to quell a growing controversy threatening to disrupt Hillary Clinton's nominating convention.

UPDATE II: It appears Debbie has stepped down!
