DCCC Addresses Wasserman Schultz Controversy

The DCCC's Executive Director, Brian Wolff, recently posted on Democratic efforts to take three Republican-held House seats in South Florida over at the Huffington Post. As you are probably aware, there's been a tremendous amount of controversy over the fact that Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, co-chair of the DCCC's Red to Blue program, has recused herself from these three races, despite the fact that we have quality challengers in each. (Rep. Kendrick Meek has also abandoned these candidates.) Wolff had this to say about the controversy:



This is in keeping with Wolff's prior comments on how importantly he views this issue:

Brian Wolff, executive director of the DCCC, says the bloggers are making "much ado about nothing," noting that it's "customary" for members to remain neutral in races involving GOP members of their respective congressional delegations.

If you, however, take a different view of things, I encourage you to call or write the relevant parties and let them know:

I miss Swing State Project..
This blog needs to be re-named "Everybody Hates Debbie Wasserman Schultz"...

It's just DavidNYC writing diaries left and right about this. NT

I Agree.....
This blog used to be about a number of races across the country. It recently has become a forum for all these Debbie Wasserman Schultz haters, just because she refused to put effort into 3 measly races (out of, what, 60-80 competitive contests in November?). Sounds like people here are picking fights with imaginary enemies.

And could somebody explain exactly why the Diaz-Balarts, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen deserve to be defeated? Just one reason for each, that's all I'm asking. Is it scandal? A bad policy decision? A bad vote? Some other thing? Or are we just attacking these three cause they're Republicans?

One reason?
I guess you haven't been reading all of David's posts.

A refresher:

How They Repay Us

Enough Good Things

S-CHIP, Arctic drilling, Iraq, the Military Commissions Act, the estate tax, fuel efficiency standards, warantless wiretapping, stem cell research... the list goes on and on and on.

We are still a blog that discusses races from across the country; we just happen to be giving Debbie Wasserman Schultz some special attention for embroiling herself in a serious conflict of interest as Red to Blue co-chair.  We can walk and chew gum at the same time.
