DNC Resignations Requested as Tom Perez Seeks Party Overhaul

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman, Tom Perez, has taken all the steps to revamp the DNC starting with asking all staff members for their resignation.

New DNC Chair Tom Perez tells WDET's Quinn Klinefelter his party needs to go door-to-door throughout the year to reach voters, not just prior to an election.

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.

"Together we'll right the ship and get the Democratic Party in a position to take the fight to Donald Trump and the Republican Party and win, " Perez said in a March 15 announcement. A transition committee assembled by Perez will then recommend which staffers the DNC will keep as part of a massive reorganization, the Hill reported.

It began with accusations of favoritism leveled by two presidential candidates, continued with the wrenching exposure of hacked emails and abrupt resignation of former chair Rep.

The overhaul will be particularly welcome to progressives, who viewed the DNC under former chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz as biased in favor of Clinton and against Sanders. He has held meetings with Democrats inside the Beltway and around the country to gather ideas.

Another source with deep knowledge of the committee's operations confirmed that every employee had to turn them in.

Although it is normal practice for a new party chairman to seek resignations from some staffers, some fear this move may lead to filling the party with those who aligned with Perez, leaving out progressives who backed his opponent, Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota).

Sanders' remarks echoed what Perez wrote when he announced his candidacy for Democratic chair in a Mic exclusive. NBC said Ellison's political director has been helping on staffing decisions in key departments.
