Perez asks for Democratic Party staff resignations

The Democratic National Committee requested resignations from all current staffers as new chairman Tom Perez tries to recreate the troubled party headquarters with a clean slate.

Perez is now taking meetings all over the country, engaging in "active listening" and working to fix and rebuild his party.

The call for the resignations, with a deadline of April 15, comes "as the DNC attempts a makeover following the 2016 election cycle that left many in the party jaded not only about Democrats' electoral prospects, but the party's campaign competency" as Slate puts it.

As the DNC begins its search to fill key party positions, Perez has begun his chairmanship traveling the country in "active listening mode".

Amidst internal conflict and a push for party reorganization, reports that the DNC asked all staffers to submit their resignations by next month have emerged. The committee is chaired by Leah Daughtry, CEO of the 2016 national convention in Philadelphia.

"After the loss in last year's election we want make sure they come into every state across the nation rebuilding the party", James said.

What then unfolded was a pleasant back and forth with the New Jersey senator apparently asking her out on a dinner date. Booker, ever the gentlemen, offered to spring for a Lyft for the actress. "Anything to get out of Newark".

It was not immediately clear how many shots were fired. "We're not going to get into that right now", she said. The Botanical Gardens were cordoned off and Capitol Hill was said to have been temporarily locked down.

Perez told NBC News last Friday, "We're repairing a plane at 20,000 feet".

The overhaul will be particularly welcome to progressives, who viewed the DNC under former chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz as biased in favor of Clinton and against Sanders. "You can't land the plane, shut it down, and close it until further notice".

Bernie Saners, (I-Vt.) who had backed Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) in the DNC race, thinks is in order.

Sanders' remarks echoed what Perez wrote when he announced his candidacy for Democratic chair in a Mic exclusive.

Perez has requested that all DNC staffers agree to step down by mid-April and is reportedly in the process of finding replacements.

Schumer, pointing to Ellison and Sanders, told Perez, "If he's happy, and if he's happy, then I'm happy", according to two sources. That could be fixed by naming the Minnesota congressman to one of the 75 slots the chairman gets to appoint to the national committee.
