The outgoing chair of the Democratic National Committee faced jeers from critics at a breakfast during the kickoff of the DNC

Outgoing Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been 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 told 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 favored Hillary Clinton in the presidential primaries against Bernie Sanders.
