Perez was installed by Obama loyalists to hold off Bernie Bro Keith Ellison, a radical firebrand and loose cannon who would transform the DNC after Debbie Wasserman Shultz turned it into an arm of the Clinton campaign.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the forum. Perez soon proved to be an incompetent boob who did nothing to repair the damage and even worse, was clueless when it came to fundraising.
Establishment types are grousing over the lack of money, a huge concern now that the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal has erupted and wary Dems have to wonder how many more Hollywood perverts who are donors may be exposed.

Via The Hill “DNC chief attracts criticism from Dem insiders”:
Democrats are pointing the finger at the man tasked with rebuilding their party: Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez.
As the party undergoes a facelift after last year’s disastrous election, some DNC members and fundraisers say Perez hasn’t done enough to improve fundraising or build enthusiasm since taking the helm in February.
In July, the DNC raised just $3.8 million, its worst fundraising month since 2007. Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee raised $10.2 million the same month. The DNC also added $154,000 to its debt, bringing its total debt load to $3.4 million.
“A lot of us feel like there’s nothing exciting, nothing invigorating coming from that building and particularly from Tom Perez,” said one top Democratic bundler, who complained that the DNC chairman didn’t even coordinate the first meeting for fundraisers until several weeks ago.
Once again, Democrats have nowhere to look for someone to blame but in the mirror. The reliance on identity politics effectively eliminated anyone of fair complexion from the equation and there are years of documented cases of the failure of affirmative action where more qualified candidates are discriminated against.
This party of race-obsessed conspiracy theorists made their own beds and now must sleep in them. Perez has always been an incompetent Obama stooge and only managed to worm his way into the gig to stop Ellison whose anti-Israel views would have alienated the Hollywood donor class, many who are Jewish like Haim Saban who has vowed that he would never support the Minnesota Democrat who he has openly accused of being an anti-Semite.
Nice job Dems, it’s all over but the crying now.
