Should Debbie Wasserman Schultz resign as DNC chair? [View all]

It's been pretty obvious her thumb was on the scale for Hillary from the start, but that computer kerfuffle last weekend was dropping a house on the scale.

Progressive voters are the base of the Democratic Party, but we haven't had a progressive chair since Howard Dean.

We need someone in that position who more than just the fat cat donors can trust.

Should Debbie Wasserman Schultz resign?
