DEMOCRAT SCANDAL: Two National DNC Staff Members REMOVED After Internal Investigation of Misconduct

There’s trouble brewing inside the Democrat Party.

Two leaders of Milwaukee’s host committee for the 2020 Democratic National Convention were fired on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 after employees expressed their concerns about the group’s “work environment.”

The Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee revealed that Liz Gilbert, who was the president of the host committee, and Adam Alonso, the group’s chief of staff, were fired after staffers expressed complaints about their stewardship.

“Every employee has a right to feel respected in their workplace. Based on the information we have learned to date, we believe the work environment did not meet the ideals and expectations of the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee Board of Directors,” the host committee declared in a statement.

“Accordingly, Liz Gilbert and Adam Alonso are no longer employed by the organization, effective immediately.”

The move was carried out a day after the organization announced it hired the services of an attorney to look into the claims about the work environment.

Two individuals who have worked alongside the host committee, who maintained their anonymity, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the group had a toxic work environment filled with power struggles and mismanagement. They claimed that Gilbert and Alonso handed out contracts to New Jersey operatives, failed to attend meetings, and focused on building their power within the group.

Gilbert and Alonso were Democratic operatives in New Jersey.

“It’s one of the worst — if not the worst — I have worked on,” the first official said, while describing his experience with the host committee.

“The spirit of what it could be for the city might be lost,” the second official chimed in.

The host committee asserted that it was first made aware of the allegations last weekend and that no concerns of “bullying and intimidation within the work environment” were even brought up before last weekend. The group added that it will continue conducting its third party investigation and take additional steps to “ensure the Host Committee’s office culture reflects respect and dignity for each and every employee.”

“The work of the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee is critically important–but that work cannot be accomplished unless members of the staff can work collaboratively. The Board is committed to an inclusive and supportive environment at the Host Committee, and will work to ensure that all employees live up to these ideals,” the committee stated.

Wisconsin political operative Teresa Vilmain will oversee the day-to-day operations in the interim.

The Democrat Party is not in good shape.

Like in 2016, Democrat leadership is trying to run as many obstacles as possible to prevent the radical leftist candidate Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination.
Trouble in Iowa, trouble in Nevada, now trouble in Wisconsin.
