DNC leaks lead the resignation of another party official

The CEO of the Democratic National Committee Amy Dacey has resigned in the wake of an email hack that roiled the party just before its presidential nominating convention.

The Associated Press reported that sources in the DNC, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told the news outlet that Dacey announced she will resign from her position at the DNC. The sources said there would be more changes coming on Tuesday.

Squared Communications, a Democratic consulting firm based in Washington, has already hired Dacey.

“As one of the top campaign strategists in our party, and with our experiences together on presidential, Senate and congressional campaigns, Amy will help our firm’s clients navigate this and future election cycles,” Michael Meehan, founder and CEO of Squared Communications, said in a statement.

Dacey’s resignation is the latest fallout from the leak of hacked emails. After the emails were released, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz announced she would resign from her position as chairwoman of the DNC after the convention concluded.

Wasserman-Schultz originally intended on opening and closing the convention but decided against doing so after Sanders supporters booed her at a breakfast meeting before the convention started.

WikiLeaks released nearly 20,000 stolen emails that appeared to show the DNC gave favorable treatment to Hillary Clinton.
