NBC News EXCLUSIVE: DNC chair asks all staffers for resignation letters https://t.co/CN7C6LWuzE

More from NBC News:
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major reshuffling of the party’s organization that has been stung by recent crisis — and the DNC has requested the resignation letters of all current staffers be submitted by next month.
Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and staffers were alerted earlier to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC’s headquarters from scratch. Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of layoffs in December.
Immediately after Perez’ election in late February, an adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party’s internal working.

Wait, I thought that when the new boss cleaned house that was a "Nazi move." https://t.co/nTNFfhg1Td

No, not when the Dems do it. But it is a sign that the DNC’s as hot a mess as ever.
The only folks to blame for the loss were those at top who insisted HRC be the nominee. https://t.co/KqiLlNATPv

And they'll be replaced with even more left wing staffers. https://t.co/cGd56UYEiE
