Tell me about Tom Perez - running for DNC Chair

Silly season is upon us, keep it civil, but this lets folks who don't want to watch the train wreck more easily avoid forced rubber necking.

I'm not totally enamored with Ellison - but I know almost nothing about this guy. Anyone know anything about him?https://www.yahoo.com/news/labor-secret ... ction.html

Lawyer, former head of DOJ Civil Rights Division. Education: Brown, Harvard, KSG. From the Hill article it looks like he was asked to run. It appears some unease with Ellison who doesn't have it locked up. Besides Ellison, South Carolina Chairman Jaime Harrison and New Hampshire Chairman Ray Buckley also running. Howard Dean withdrew.

Just give me any Democrat that isn't a weenie or a Wiener.
