Democratic National Committee chief financial officer Brad Marshall and communications director Luis Miranda have joined CEO Amy Dacey in leaving the DNC in the wake of damaging emails released by Wikileaks.
One May email from Marshall that was leaked shows him suggesting that the DNC “get someone” to attend a Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ rally in Kentucky or West Virginia and question his Jewish faith. “Does he believe in God. He had skated on saying he has Jewish heritage,” Marshall said. “This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”
Multiple emails from Miranda were sure to cause worry at the DNC. In one email, he responds to an empty protest by saying, “Going forward, when our allies screw up and don’t deliver bodies in time, we either send all our interns out there or we stay away from it… we don’t want to own a bad picture.”
Miranda talked negatively of the Hillary Clinton campaign as well in leaked emails. “Clinton campaign is a mess, they’re afraid of their own shadow,” Luis Miranda said on May 19. He described Clinton’ campaign as “hobbling along unable to close it out.”
In another email, Miranda wrote, “It’s clear that Bernie messed up and we were on the right side of history.”
