The DNC Cleans House, Fires Top Staffers

As the Clinton campaign transitions into taking over the DNC, some housekeeping chores are under way.

The Washington Post reports that three more staffers have resigned their positions.

Chief executive Amy Dacey, Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall and Communications Director Luis Miranda will leave the DNC just days after a new leader took the helm.

That new leader is Donna Brazile, who is clearing out the last vestiges of those who were in charge of a lax, loose, and ridiculous email system, among other things. I've long been frustrated with the lack of attention Debbie Wasserman Schultz gave to downticket races. Like others, I was also frustrated at her lack of balance in the primary. Even if she didn't actually do anything overt, it was frustrating that she gave that impression. Neither candidate needed her finger on or off the scale for their benefit.

At any rate, there is fresh leadership inside the DNC, and that's a very, very good thing. Onward.
