Despite an attempt to show party unity at the Democratic convention last month, the fight between Sen. Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton continues to rage, this time in Florida.
Last week, outrage over her party’s machinations against Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primary race cost Jewish Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz her seat as chair of the Democratic National Committee. Now, along with the specter of the Iran deal, it may be coming after her seat in the House.
An email leak that led to the resignation of Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz could plague her bid for re-election to Congress, after a challenger said on Monday he would file a complaint alleging she had broken election rules.
In a career full of achievement — a seat in the House of Representatives, chair of the Democratic National Committee and captain of the House women’s softball team — Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz hit yet another milestone recently: She became a Saturday Night Live punch line, and in the season finale’s much-lauded cold open, no less.
Two of the most prominent Jewish Democrats are engaged in an ugly battle, which is playing out on national TV, at party headquarters, and on the battlefield of a Florida congressional district.
