Former Minnesota Mayor R-T Rybak says he has “tremendous respect” for the woman who will serve as interim leader of the Democratic National Committee. Rybak is vice chair of the Democratic National Committee. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the party’s chairwoman, announced her resignation Sunday, after leaked emails showed party staff favoring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. Rybak tweeted Saturday that any party staffer who used office computers or email “to talk against” a Democratic candidate “should be fired. Period.” Donna Brazile is stepping in to lead the party. Rybak says he’s worked closed with her in the past and she is just what the party needs right now. Rybak also joked on Sunday that he would be “starting a second career as a scalper” — selling tickets to the debate between new Democratic Party chairwoman Brazile and the Republican Party’s chairman.
