DWS’s opponent in the primary for her House seat has filed a federal election lawsuit against her for using DNC personnel and resources to boost her chances and to attack him, law professor Tim Canover. DWS has already had to step down from the lead position at the DNC after leaks prove she sandbagged Bernie Sanders in favor of Hillary Clinton. Now, she could be in trouble with the FEC, although I seriously doubt it because FEC commissioner Ann M. Ravel is as crooked as a dog’s hind foot.
The allegations come a week after Schultz announced she was resigning as committee chair amid fallout from the email leak suggesting the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary.
Canova called his campaign’s discovery the “tip of the iceberg” of Wasserman Schultz’s reported mismanagement at the DNC.
“A lot of folks are unhappy with her, and this is what I mean, that she’ll be a drag on the ticket at this point.”
Schultz, who has represented Florida in Congress since 2005, is leading Canova by eight points, according to a poll released by Canova’s campaign on Sunday.
Sanders announced in May that he was backing Canova’s bid against Wasserman Schultz, causing a stir as the Vermont Senator was still running for president at the time.
I’m hoping Canover and the voters will put DWS out of our misery.
