Is Debbie Wasserman Schultz The Worst Liar In The Universe?

“The DNC did not consult with all of the campaigns on the debate schedule, and they purposefully hid debates on weekends and at the height of the holiday season to depress viewership,” O’Malley spokeswoman Lis Smith told The Daily Caller News Foundation, indicating the Wasserman Schultz statement is a lie. “What the DNC committed is nothing short of political malpractice,” Smith added.

Neither Wasserman Schultz nor the DNC immediately responded to requests for comment.

The debate schedule actually seems to have worked against Clinton’s benefit, as she continues to plummet in the polls next to Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders. In a signal of just how much influence the Clinton team did have on the schedule, The New York Times reported Monday several of her advisers now regret not pushing for more debates.

“Instead, Mrs. Clinton, who entered the race as the prohibitive favorite, played it safe, opting for as few debates as possible,” reported TheNYT.

Slate’s Ben Mathis-Lilley raked Wasserman Schultz across the coals for the statement Monday, pointing out that if she’s not lying about the intentions of the debate schedule, she’s admitting to total failure.

“If Debbie Wasserman Schultz wanted to ‘maximize the opportunity for voters to see our candidates’ she failed,” Mathis-Lilley wrote. “But she probably didn’t; she probably helped schedule the debates on purpose on nights that TV audiences would be small so as not to give too much exposure to Hillary Clinton’s rivals. And she’s probably lying about it now.”

The DNC has gotten flak from within and without over the “rigged” debate schedule, with two party vice chairs joining O’Malley early on in his criticism, and other Democrats adding to the chorus.
