DNC Asks Entire Staff to Resign

Tom Perez

Immediately following the hotly contested DNC chair race in February, the victor Tom Perez, a former labor secretary under President Barack Obama, asked the entire DNC staff to submit their letters of resignation by April 15, NBC News reported Tuesday.

Shortly after former Labor Secretary Tom Perez became the party's chair in late February, the DNC requested resignation letters to be dated April 15, giving Perez the ability - should he choose - to launch a large-scale reorganization.

Additionally, a committee is advising Perez on not only who should be fired, but also how the Democratic Party should be structured from the inside.

After a campaign beset by deep fractures between the party establishment and its more progressive wing, Democrats suffered brutal election defeats, including Hillary Clinton's stunning loss to Donald Trump.

The party will now search to fill key posts supervised by around 30 members of the transition advisory committee.

There is no indication as to which staffers will remain and which will go, as that is up to the DNC and Perez.

Veteran party operative Donna Brazile acted as interim chairman before Perez was elected.

It's no secret this past year the DNC has had its fair share of scandals and crisis, and according to NBC News, "the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC's headquarters from scratch".

"We're repairing a plane at 20,000 feet", he told the network, suggesting his view of the magnitude of the task in front of him.

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