Martin O'Malley has continued to be a thorn in the side of the Democratic National Committee. Over the past few weeks, he's publicly criticized the DNC and its chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, for limiting debates in order to help Hillary Clinton. Schultz hasn't taken it lightly.

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was spotted in the background of the Red Carpet show leading up to tonight's Grammys. She was joined by Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas.
