Democratic National Committee CEO Amy Dacey has resigned following the embarrassing email leak scandal that also cost Debbie Wasserman Schultz her job as DNC Chair.
According to the Associated Press, Dacey is stepping down in the wake of the controversy surrounding leaked emails that suggest that party leadership heavily favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary.
Dacey is just one of several staffing changes expected on Tuesday, all of which follow the resignation of Wasserman Schultz ahead of the party’s national convention last week.
Dacey is now employed by the Democratic consulting firm Squared communications.
“As one of the top campaign strategists in our party, and with our experiences together on presidential, Senate and congressional campaigns, Amy will help our firm’s clients navigate this and future election cycles,” Michael Meehan, founder and CEO Squared Communications, said in a statement to the AP.
