In the wake of Donna Brazile stepping in to serve as interim chair of the Democratic National Committee through Election Day, the organization announced on Tuesday that three more top staffers were departing.

CEO Amy Dacey, Communications Director Luis Miranda, and CFO Brad Marshall are leaving their DNC posts. Brazile praised each outgoing staffer in a statement for their “commitment to this cause” and wished them well in the future.

“This election is the most important of my lifetime, and the DNC will continue to recruit top talent to help lead the fight to elect Hillary Clinton and Democrats across the country,” Brazile said in the statement.

The announcement comes after former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned her position before the opening of last week’s convention after thousands of stolen emails from the committee’s servers were published online by Wikileaks.

Dacey, Miranda and Marshall were each prominently featured in those emails, which included the staffers discussing a potential attack on Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) religious beliefs and insulting Sanders’ understanding of the party machinery.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
