Democrats' Unity Message Clouded by Chair's Resignation

Updated on

The Democratic National Committee gloated as Donald Trump struggled to project Republican unity during his national convention, but they are now facing a similar problem after their leader resigned on the eve of their own gathering.

Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was booed by pro-Bernie Sanders protesters on Monday during her remarks to delegates from her home state of Florida at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, a day after leaked e-mails showing party staffers favoring Hillary Clinton over Sanders during the primary drove the chairwoman to resign, effective at the end of the week's gathering.
