Please rec if you are ready to move on from the wikileaks story [View all]

and to start getting pumped about our Democratic Convention.

An apology has been issued. Let's move on.

"I deeply regret that my insensitive, emotional emails would cause embarrassment to the DNC, the chairwoman, and all of the staffers who worked hard to make the primary a fair and open process," Marshall said. "The comments expressed do not reflect my beliefs nor do they reflect the beliefs of the DNC and its employees. I apologize to those I offended."
