DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has resigned and now won’t even appear on stage at the Dem convention this week as her primary opponent prepares to launch a legal investigation into whether her controversial actions broke the law.

According to The Hill:

“Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Florida primary opponent, Tim Canova, says he’s preparing a legal complaint against the outgoing Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman as a result of information revealed last week by WikiLeaks.

“The Wikileaks emails indicate that Debbie Wasserman Schultz used DNC resources to assist her reelection campaign in violation of federal law,” said Tim Canova, a Democratic law professor who is challenging Wasserman Schultz in Florida’s 23rd Congressional District primary on Aug. 30.

“According to the emails, top DNC officials used party resources to monitor, respond to, and impede my campaign on numerous occasions,” Canova added in a statement to reporters on Monday, the first morning of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

“My campaign election lawyers are investigating these circumstances and preparing a complaint against Wasserman Schultz with the Federal Election Commission.”
