Hillary has been in the hot seat, but she escaped unscathed.
But what is really going on behind the scenes? Is something big going down inside the DNC?
A high-level Democratic National Committee staff member, Seth Rich, was gunned down by unknown assailants near his home in Washington, D.C. while reportedly walking home at 4 a.m.
As the Washington Post noted:
Seth Rich made such an impression as a teenage intern in Nebraska that a U.S. Senate campaign hired him before he completed high school. A young man who dreamed politics, he headed to Capitol Hill after college.
Early Sunday morning, the 27-year-old was shot to death in a crime that has shaken not only his family, colleagues and friends, but also many in his Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest. Police said they have no suspects, witnesses or motive, though they are looking at whether Rich could have been slain in an attempted robbery.
“He wanted to make a difference,” Joel Rich said of the younger of his two sons. “Politics was in his blood.” He called his son’s killing “a waste.”
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz gave condolences for a staff member described as being from a prominent Jewish family that she appears to have known personally:
“Seth Rich was a dedicated, selfless public servant who worked tirelessly to protect the most sacred right we share as Americans,” said Wasserman Schultz.
“He was a joy to have as a member of our team, and his talents, intelligence and enthusiasm will be deeply missed by many friends, colleagues and co-workers who worked by his side in service to the highest ideals of our democracy.”
