Debbie Wasserman Schultz probably thought she was all clear. Her resignation was tendered, the damage against the Sanders campaign done, and the presidential nomination in the books for Team Hillary.
Wasserman Schultz had ridden off into the sunset, “honorary” chair of the Clinton campaign, nothing left for her to do but ensure that Hillary Clinton becomes the next President of the United States.
Her reward for loyal servitude to the queen—extending back to time spent with the Clinton campaign prior to becoming DNC Chair—would in due time be delivered.
Then came word from the Sanders campaign. Its staff would be redirecting their focus from defeating Hillary to defeating her.
Now, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has her own election battle on her hands.
The Hill reported:
The political consulting firm run by top aides to Bernie Sanders's presidential campaign is going to work for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s primary challenger.
Sanders has already endorsed the Florida Democrat's opponent, professor Tim Canova, and the exposure helped Canova haul in more than $2 million.
The former DNC Chair's fairy tale ending may get a darker plot twist.
Regardless, if the American people have learned anything Hillary Clinton, Wasserman Schultz's willingness to cross ethical boundaries to get Madame Secretary elected will be richly rewarded should the election go their way.
