DNC A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT

These heads should have been rolling before the Hillary balloon drop.

But then, this is not about cleaning house, but more about taking the focus off the conspirators who, after successfully rigging the primaries, have accomplished their mission and are now liabilities.


The CEO of the Democratic National Committee and two other high-level staffers left the organization on Tuesday in the wake of the committee'shacked email controversy.

Amy Dacey is the highest-ranking official at the DNC to step aside due to the matter, a senior Democratic official said.


TheDNC also announced the departure of CFO Brad Marshall and and Communications Director Luis Miranda in a press release Tuesday afternoon.

Dacey is well-respected by Hillary Clinton's campaign and the DNC circle, a source familiar with the resignation said. But the committee is looking to clean house in the wake of leaked emails that appeared to show the committee favoring Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the primary. Dacey's resignation was first reported by Politico.


Interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile, who stepped in after the resignation of former Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, also announced some additions to her team, saying former Howard Dean aide Tom McMahon would lead a transition team focused on November's election. The chief of staff that joined the DNC in June, Brandon Davis, will retain his post
and oversee general election efforts, Brazile announced.


Also joining as an interim senior adviser is Doug Thornell.

Wasserman Schultz resigned after the party's convention last week as a result of the revelations, and Brazile has stepped in as interim chair through theelection.


The changes at the DNC come as the Clinton campaign is moving to take greater control of party headquarters in washington and in states across the country.


Democrats are also trying to get ahead of the disclosure of more emails and internal documents from hacked computer systems, fearful of more embarrassing revelations.


The press release made no mention of the controversy, focusing instead on gearing up for the November election.
