Vice-chair of NC Democratic Party resigns after accusations of Satanic Cult abuse

Durham, N.C. — A Durham couple charged with kidnapping, rape and assault was involved with a satanic cult, a prosecutor said on Monday.

Joy Johnson and Joseph Craig appeared at a bond hearing Monday. A judge set Craig's bond at $590,000, but refused a prosecution request to increase Johnson's bond from $270,000 to $500,000.

Prosecutors said a man and a woman met Craig through a shared interest in Satan worship, but the pair never consented to physical abuse.

Craig shackled his victims to beds, kept them in dog cages and starved them inside his Albany Street home, prosecutors said. He was charged with beating the man with a cane and a cord and with raping the woman.

"This goes well above what they were interested in doing," Assistant Durham County District Attorney Mark McCullough said.

Johnson, who was third vice-chair of the Durham County Democratic Party and vice-chair for the Young Democrats, was charged with two counts of aiding and abetting. Prosecutors said she knew her husband planned the crime and watched as they were committed.

She has resigned her positions with the Democratic Party, said state Sen. Floyd McKissick, D-Durham.

I accidentally left out “Durham, NC” (instead of NC) in title.

Please fix.

Isn’t the Democrat Party itself a satanic Cult?

You have to ping the mods if you want their help.

Pinging yourself just leads to hairy palms and blindness.

Maybe.....Maybe not.

Certainly you could look at the members’ values/morals and find much in common with an M.C. Escher drawing.

Thanks. I never knew exactly how that worked. It always seemed to ‘just happen’.

“Isn’t the Democrat Party itself a satanic Cult?”

No. Don’t you know they are the good guys. The republican with their culture of corruption are the evil ones. LOL

You think the Raleigh (DNC) Propoganda & Observer will cover it?

How ‘bout the Charlotte Un-Observer?

Nah!

Just the kind of Democrats who are trying to hoodwink evangelicals to follow them down the road to Hell, ergo “Left-wing Christians.”

I doubt this is going to get the kind of coverage the F(lds) got.

I doubt it will be covered by the Stepford Wives of the MSM at all.

Yeah, warm and fuzzy. Ugh.

Prosecutors said a man and a woman met Craig through a shared interest in Satan worship, but the pair never consented to physical abuse.

This line caught my eye. Shared interest okay, but no consent for abuse. Well, ok, then. So they might share this interest and consent to abuse? The whole thing is just sick.

Prosecutors said she knew her husband planned the crime and watched as they were committed.

So then, what?, she was innocent? Duped? Afraid of him (and I can see why) or afraid only for purposes of a defense? Ugh. I wonder what local Dem response to this is? (cue tumbleweeds and loving support)

She has resigned her positions with the Democratic Party

Why? She just qualified for promotion. Besides, no evidence that she was violating separation of church and state.

New update on the case - 3rd person has now been charged - as an accessory after the fact.

This 3rd person is FIRST SECRETARY of Durham, NC Democratic party!

Her attorney is of course denying any and all charges against this woman....who, by the way, has NOT resigned her position in the Durham Democratic party.

The allegation is she moved evidence from the home of the couple - including her fellow Democratic leader - who have had these charges leveled against them - including Rape!

We knew The demonrats were the party of rape - they have been led by the first Rapist since 1992
