    The chair of the Democratic National Committee Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced she will resign at the end of the convention after leaked emails suggested members of the committee favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders.

    Sanders supporters were furious following the leaked emails and many called for Wasserman's immediate resignation.

    Kathy Leonard posted on the necn Facebook page and said, "she should step down NOW, not at the end of the convention."

    Peter Hill said "her departure is a must" and Carole Klempa-Risler added, "She should be out of there immediately...she did her damage already. I cannot understand why she is allowed to stay."

    The vice chair of the DNC, Donna Brazile will serve as the interim chair through the election.
