Donna Brazile, the former CNN “analyst” who snuck debate question to Hillary Clinton, is on her way out as DNC Chairman.
So a new candidate steps up in Labor Secretary Tom Perez, who’s battled his own email scandal — which is incredibly similar to Hillary Clinton’s.
Perez, 55, announced his bid for Chair of the DNC this week amid the flameout of the candidacy of Keith Ellison, the Muslim congressman from Minnesota.
But with renewed focus on Perez and his career comes a reminder that, just like Hilary Clinton, Perez repeatedly broke America’s security laws and the Federal Records Act by using a private email address to hide his activities from public scrutiny.
In 2013, when Perez was angling behind the scenes to replace Eric Holder as U.S. Attorney General, the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees, along with the minority staff on the Senate Judiciary Committee, launched an investigation into Perez’s activities and found that he did a lot of business at DOJ using a private email address. The investigation determined that Perez “likely violated both the spirit and letter of the Federal Records Act” by using his private email to hide what he was doing from federal officials, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Acting more like Clinton with every step during the investigation, Perez refused to obey a subpoena and supply his emails to the committee. He even refused when Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) demanded that Perez turn over his emails, the Washington Examiner reported in May of 2013.
