More from The New York Times:
R.T. Rybak, the former mayor of Minneapolis and a vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee, on Thursday accused the party’s leader, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, of making “flat-out not true” statements about another top party officer, questioned her political skills and said he had “serious questions” about her suitability for the job.
The broadside from Mr. Rybak, which came in an interview late Thursday afternoon, followed weeks of internal party dissension over the number and timing of the presidential primary debates it has scheduled, capped by an acrimonious public dispute over whether Ms. Wasserman Schultz had punitively barred another Democratic vice chair, Tulsi Gabbard, from the first debate, held on Tuesday in Las Vegas.
“The Democratic National Committee staff has never been stronger,” said Mr. Rybak in an interview. ”The one thing that could stop us from having a great election coming up is if the chair continues to create these self-made dramas that are below what a chair should be doing.”
Debbie? Lying? Creating drama? Ya don’t say!

They didn't get mad at her every other time. She's like a lie machine. The energizer bunny of lies. https://t.co/Kw7P1qYeaq
