The Democratic National Convention began Monday and is already full of frustrated attendees upset with the poor logistics.

At one entrance to the Wells Fargo Center Monday, a line of uncomfortable, sweating conference attendees seethed after being told they could not enter. When one person pressed the staff member as to why they were waiting, the staff member replied that he needed to call someone but didn’t have a walkie talkie. Around the corner, one man could be heard yelling “Who’s in charge?!” to an employee seemingly incapable of providing help.

“No one knows what they’re doing here,” another attendee shot in the air. This reporter was told conflicting information from multiple employees, many of whom had no idea which entrance to go to or where the media tent was located.

When TheDCNF asked a worker at the media info table about wireless internet, his face fell. He said there was was wi-fi, but it wasn’t really working in part of the media tent. The media tent is where reporters get Internet access to write their stories.

The criticism comes after former chairwoman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, did not gavel the convention and announced she would resign.
