Murphy resigns (GOP) political posts; cooperating with police in apparent criminal investigation

UPDATE: Murphy resigns political posts; cooperating with police in apparent criminal investigation

Party chair says in letter resignation was for "business reasons"

By LARRY THOMAS

The chairman of the Clark County Republican Party — who last month was elected president of the Young Republican National Federation — has resigned both posts, apparently in the wake of a criminal investigation.

On Tuesday afternoon, Glenn Murphy Jr. e-mailed media outlets a letter announcing his resignation from both positions, citing an unexpected business opportunity that would prohibit him from holding a partisan political office.

However, the Clark County Sheriff’s Department on Friday began investigating Murphy for alleged criminal deviate conduct — potentially a class B felony — after speaking with a 22-year-old man who claimed that on July 31, Murphy performed an unwanted sex act on him while the man slept in a relative’s Jeffersonville home.

Larry Wilder, Murphy’s attorney, said Murphy is cooperating with police and Prosecutor Steve Stewart. Wilder said Murphy contends the sex act was consensual.

A reporter was unable to reach Stewart on Tuesday evening.

In 1998, a 21-year-old male filed a similar report with Clarksville police claiming Murphy attempted to perform a sex act on him while he was sleeping. Charges were never filed in that case.

Hey! What about the “big tent.” The Republicans don’t want to draw the line at sexual deviancy do they? Don’t they want to be like the Demorats?

This sickening story occurs right across the river from Kentucky, involves the Young Republicans National Federation Chairman, and is worthy of a

Yegh, whenever they start arguing it was consensual, they’ve lost any of my respect anyway.

Business opportunity? Perhaps an assistant under Jeff Gannon.

The big tent includes all private sexual activity by CONSENTING adults. People who commit sexual assaults on unwilling victims go OUTSIDE the tent.

LOL. Yeah, I joked about that with a friend at dinner last night. We said maybe Murphy can transition from his leadership role in Young Republicans to the Log Cabin Republicans.

What ever happened to all those other odd balls over the last 10 years that were connected at the hip with the weasel as neocon/RINO cool aid drinkers in this organization of Rockerfeller Republicans?

Faith Murkey comes to mind.
