Yvette Simpson’s leadership of Democracy for America questioned

Yvette Simpson, a former member of the Cincinnati City Council, resigned this month as executive director of Democracy for America.  Politico ran a story with former employees blaming Simpson's leadership for the organization's demise.

Former Cincinnati Councilwoman Yvette Simpson’s management of a Democratic political action committee was criticized over the weekend in a Politico article.

Five unnamed former Democracy for America staffers, in the Politico piece published Sunday, blamed Simpson’s leadership for the shutdown this month of the Democracy for America political action committee. The piece also cited internal memos and Slack messages in which employees accused Simpson of not making an effort to raise money.

In a Dec. 7 tweet, Simpson announced her resignation as executive director of Democracy for America. The tweet cited no other reason than “now is the time to turn the page and start writing the next one.”
