Outgoing DNC Chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz heckled during Florida speech
WATCH ABOVE: Bernie Sanders supporters booed and jeered Debbie Wasserman Schultz at a Florida event on Monday, less than a day after her resignation as DNC chairwoman.

Outgoing Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is being heckled at a breakfast of Florida delegates, with opponents shouting, “Shame!”

The Florida congresswoman announced Sunday that she would resign as the party’s chair at the end of this week’s Democratic National Convention.

Wasserman Schultz is telling the crowd during a raucous scene that “we have to make sure that we move together in a unified way.” But supporters of Bernie Sanders shouted at her during her brief remarks to the breakfast.

Her ouster came after a firestorm over hacked emails that suggested the DNC favoured Hillary Clinton in the presidential primaries against Bernie Sanders.
