Another Democratic official charged in satanist sex crimes By Ray Gronberg : The Herald-Sun
DURHAM -- Police say they've arrested and charged a third person in connection with an ongoing rape and kidnapping investigation.
Diana Palmer, 44, is charged with being an accessory after the fact, Durham Police Department spokeswoman Kammie Michael said Wednesday afternoon.
Palmer is first vice chairwoman of the Durham County Democratic Party. Her arrest came five days after police arrested the party's third vice chairwoman, Joy Johnson, 30, and Johnson's husband, Joseph Scott Craig, 25.
Craig faces three counts of second-degree kidnapping, one count of second-degree rape, one count of second degree-forcible sex offense and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
A Durham County prosecutor said in court earlier this week that the charges stemmed from some sort of satanic ritual.
Palmer's attorney, Bill Thomas, said Wednesday that Palmer "vehemently denies any knowledge of any crime being perpetrated by the persons who have been previously arrested in this case, and further she denies any association whatsoever with a satanic cult or any other cult."

Now we are up to the first vice chair.
CD is this anywhere near you?
sounds like a nice friendly little coven they had going, no offense to fine upright witches
Now why doesn’t it surprise me Modern Democrats (Obama Supporters most likely) involved in rape, kidnapping, and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
I think I’ll keep my car doors locked on the way home tonight. Good thing I only work in Durham and don’t live here.
Seems like no one can spell Democrat Party right?
This reminds me of the Duke lacrosse scandel. I wonder if there could be any tie-in to the principles in that legal fiasco among the political/judicial leadership being involved with this?
Good lord almighty!
Nifong must be involved there somewhere............
I live here in Nifongville, and actually ate dinner last night with a friend that worked briefly with Joy Johnson and was stunned at the charges. She couldn’t believe it...said Johnson was nice and quiet, the usual sort of “he was such a nice boy” you find people saying about serial killers, I guess.
This has no national traction yet, BTW. Big story here in Durham and in the Triangle in general, but nothing nationally. Tell me if it wasn’t two biggies in the Durham County Republican Party (if we even HAVE one), it wouldn’t be all over the national news by now.
Well, this sure ain’t leading any of the local news services.
Arrest warrants allege Craig assaulted one woman with a solid wood case, “inflicting serious injury.” Another arrest warrant alleges Craig kidnapped a 16-year-old and assaulted him with a wood cane and a cable cord.
I’m sure the same people in Durham who were out holding rallies, vigils, and protest marches about those terrible Duke lacrosse players will be out in force protesting this—NOT.
More Demoncrat diversity ping.
Third person charged in satanic rituals case
Durham County is near Raleigh... about 90 miles from me. This story is unbelievable.
Speaking as someone who knows a GOP county vice chairman (heh heh), why do they need SO MANY freakin’ vice chairs? :)
I mean, Durham County is overwhelmingly Democratic. Nifong Country, you know.
Check it out... I saw your ping on the other thread but got too busy to reply.
