Fire DNC CFO Brad Marshall and All Staff That Broke Rules Plotting Against Bernie Sanders

The recent Wikileaks revelation exposed the fact that the now-former Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz violated Article Five, Section 4 of the DNC Charter and Bylaws that state, "The Chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic Party Presidential nominating process."
Leaked emails clearly demonstrate that Schultz did not maintain impartiality among herself or DNC officers and staff. While Schultz was forced to resign, DNC officials and staffers that did not maintain impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic primary still have jobs. Probably the most egregious example of the violation of DNC bylaws came from DNC CFO Brad Marshall, who despicably proposed utilizing Bernie Sanders religious beliefs, or possible lack thereof, against Sanders' candidacy.
The Democratic Party should not be stoking the flames of religious bigotry, including fostering ill will against anyone that may not be religious at all. In a May 2016 email to Communications Director Luis Miranda and Deputy Communications Director Mark Paustenbach, DNC CFO Brad Marshall, emailed:
"It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist."
The Democratic party is a big tent party that should include atheists, agnostics and those that are deeply religious. Tactics described in Marshall's email, implying that someone's religious belief could be worth "several points" have no place in modern politics and makes many people feel like 2nd class citizens within the party.
The DNC and the entire Democratic Party needs to uphold DNC rules and especially take a stand against all forms of religious bigotry. DNC CFO Brad Marshall should not have a position with the Democratic Party and should be fired immediately, as should every DNC official and staffer that did not demonstrate impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic primary.
