DEMOCRATS IN DISARRAY: DNC Vice chair Tulsi Gabbard resigns, endorses Sanders. “Things have been fairly rocky on the DNC ranch through most of this election cycle. This was, in no small part, due to the continued erratic behavior of their chair, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and her mystifying public statements and decisions on how best to win an election. Her endless efforts to stack the election in Hillary Clinton’s favor have not only raised the hackles of her opponents, but some on her own team. She’s got a few lieutenants who will toe the party line and repeat all the talking points – Donna Brazile is an excellent example – but there’s been trouble among the rank and file. One of her other committee vice-chairs, Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard, had her invitation rescinded for one of the few debates originally scheduled because she dared to suggest that there should be few more. That relationship apparently hasn’t gotten any better since then.”
