But the Florida congresswoman, who faces a newly emboldened primary challenge in her home state, could barely be heard over the ruckus.

DNC Chairwoman Won’t Speak or Preside at Convention
America thanks the DNC Rules Committee at the DNC for not making us listen to her.
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz will not be speaking at nor presiding over the Democratic convention this week, CNN reported.
Wasserman Schultz’s position as the convention chairwoman was rescinded Saturday by the DNC Rules Committee, according to the network.
Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) instead will assume the role as the permanent chair of the convention.
The news comes after a trove of emails was released by WikiLeaks last week that appeared to show top officials at the DNC planning how to undermine Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign.
I wonder which media outlets will continue to give her a voice during the convention.
