Emails: Resigning is not enough

Elections are serious business, and the people who run them are charged with a serious responsibility. The major political parties’ National Committees are by far the most prominent of those people.

The DNC handles massive quantities of money on the behalf of contributors for the purpose of promoting and furthering the agreed upon agenda in a fair and balanced manner.

When the DNC colluded through emails to the advantage of one candidate to the disadvantage of another they committed fraud. I believe those responsible committed a crime and should be punished accordingly.

For the DNC to simply allow Debbie Wasserman Schultz to step down and call it a day is not enough and unacceptable. Thousands, if not millions, of contributors have been financially harmed and possibly disenfranchised.

I also believe Schultz, and the others, of which there are probably many, should be sanctioned and excluded from further political activities, at least throughout the remainder of this political cycle .To do otherwise, after practically admitting to participating in this scandal, would be tantamount to a slap on the wrist and tacit permission to go ahead and capitalize on the damage that was done.
