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.
