Brazile’s New Book Opened Up Another Can of Worms

Former interim Chair of the DNC has tipped over an ugly can of worms onto the Democrat Party. Standing right under the can was former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her boss, candidate Hillary Clinton. You might say that there is a little name calling going on in this release.

A “body woman” is Washington-speak for a personal assistant/valet. It’s a person whose entire job is handling travel details, food, etc. for the candidate or in this case the DNC chair. At the time Brazile took over ….
