DNC CEO out after less than a year on the job

The CEO of the Democratic National Committee is leaving after less than a year on the job, NBC News has learned.

Veteran Democrat operative Jess O'Connell took the helm of the DNC last May with a mandate to help newly installed Chairman Tom Perez turn around a troubled party organization that was struggling after years of neglect and a brutal 2016 that included accusations of favoritism in the primary between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, the hacking of internal emails, and the loss to President Donald Trump.

O'Connell will leave the party stabilized, if not yet fully recovered, after wins last year in Virginia and Alabama, and her decision to leave is a personal one, a DNC official told NBC News, timed to cause minimal disruption ahead of November's midterm elections.


O'Connell's departure comes just months after the DNC ousted its finance director following a period of weak fundraising, as well as a shakeup last year that reignited tensions with Sanders' allies.


The beatings will continue until morale improves. Isn't this what the DR was calling for? Demolishing the party? Here you have it. Look around that the Liberal paradise we forming.

What do I know? Maybe the marches and hashtags are the beginning of something.

"Still, the party has found itself subject to fewer negative headlines of late as fundraising started to improve and vacancies are filled."

The sky is falling!

Hows the budget?

Still looking for HRC dollars?

The DNC being bankrupt is the biggest problem, until that is solved everything is just moving chairs around....

TL;DR should be your handle.

Should I? It's all teed up and everything.
