Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee, may soon be losing her position. She could be giving up her seat as soon as the beginning of summer. At least a dozen top elected officials are on board with this decision.

“There have been a lot of meetings over the past 48 hours about what color plate do we deliver Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s head on,” a U.S. Senate Democrat supporting Hillary Clinton told The Hill on Tuesday. “I don’t see how she can continue to the election. How can she open the convention? Sanders supporters would go nuts,” the source concluded.

Wasserman Schultz has been accused of favoring Clinton because of her history with the candidate. She was the co-chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. In December, she was responsible for stripping the Sanders campaign of access to the DNC’s 50-state voter file, which caused a lot of outrage amongst the party.

The hashtag #DumpDebbie is already going viral by Twitter users to urge the removal of Wasserman Schultz.
