DNC Fires Finance Director After Abysmal Fiscal Year

DC: The Democratic National Committee (DNC) fired its finance director Thursday due to low fundraising numbers, according to a Politico report.

Emily Mellencamp Smith was fired during the committee’s senior leadership’s efforts to reorganize and boost fundraising, Politico reported Thursday.

“We are grateful for Emily Mellencamp Smith’s work to help build a fundraising team that will raise the funds to win in 2017, 2018 and beyond. Emily is going back to consulting and helping elect Democrats in upcoming races, including staying on in a consulting role for the DNC at this time,” the DNC’s press secretary, Michael Tyler, told Politico.

From January to September under the leadership of DNC chairman Tom Perez, the DNC has only raised $51 million, compared to the Republican National Committee (RNC) which has raised more than $104 million during the same time period.

The RNC raised $7.3 million in the month of August, while the DNC raised only $4.35 million, according to FEC filings. This gives the RNC a total of $45.8 million cash on hand, while the DNC has only $6.8 million.

In addition, the RNC had no debt, while the DNC now owes slightly above $4 million.  MORE

  1. Why don’t they ask the “Foundation” to bail them out? After all, the Clintons won’t be needing it…

  2. DNC is destitute and bankrupt in spite of support by fake news cheerleaders. This is largely due to corrupt slimeballs like Maxine, Pelousy and Waterman-Schlitz. Perhaps the major factor was Cankle’s implosion.

    But don’t worry about Cankles. She still has plenty of money…

  3. #BlueWave!


    Nobody tell ole Sleep Eyes Chuck Todd. His food stamp Money Ball impersonation every Sunday has him contorting facts and figures about fundraising that have him riding high atop his clairvoyant surfboard – The Big Kunthuna – riding that Blue Wave onto a shore filled with loving embraces in November. High fives as far as the eye can see.

    With zero bias perceived by the naked eye whatsoever.

  4. Speaking from a capitalist view, this is like changing the equipment manager because the team is losing. All the finance director does is track the numbers, it’s the sales team Perez & Co. who are failing. Well, they do have a lousy product, that’s really the primary reason.

  5. The last straw (plastic of course) wuz when he told ’em “Ya just can’t polish that turd you keep trying to pick up by the “clean” end!”

  6. What an incompetent bookkeeper! Doesn’t she know about shifting the decimal place to make the books balance?

  7. They fired the last one, too. Without the compulsory union dues from government workers and slush funds from EPA and Consumer Finance Protection – among other gov’t agencies – Democrat finances are dire and can only get worse.

    Democrats don’t give their own money. They steal yours.

  8. Sooner or later, the snake oil salesman runs out of gullible customers.
    Waiting for the tar, feathers, and rail to be ridden out on here…
