|'Mook Mafia' Meltdown at 'Ready for Hillary' HQ|

The self-proclaimed campaign manager for the "Ready for Hillary" campaign, Robby Mook has been unceremoniously ousted from his position. He was the Godfather of Hillary Clinton's 'Mook Mafia' political operatives team.
The Washington Post reports that, "A cache of emails from a private listserv maintained by Democratic operatives Robby Mook and Marlon Marshall — contenders for top positions on Hillary Clinton's potential presidential campaign — was leaked to ABC News and published Friday. But rather than coming from Republican rivals, which wouldn't be terribly surprising, the leak reportedly came from within the group's ranks."
A Wall Street banker-driven power struggle ensued at Hillary Clinton's campaign headquarters in Westchester County N.Y.
According to the Washington Post, "The episode does more than showcase the jockeying that's already happening in Hillaryland before a would-be campaign has even been announced. It's also a vivid reminder that Clinton's 2008 race was frequently cited as a case study in how behind-the-scenes squabbling can derail a frontrunner. And it contributes to an already-existing narrative that the new Clinton campaign is highly susceptible to similar infighting."
No word yet on which mafia organization will replace Godfather Robby Mook's team.
