NC Dem official sexually harrassed staffer; Party fears credibility ‘doomed’
The Daily Caller ^ | 4/13/12 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 04/13/2012 12:09:34 PM PDT by hope

A former North Carolina Democratic Party staffer was sexually harassed by a party official, made a financial settlement with the party and signed a non-disclosure agreement to keep the incident quiet.

“If this hits the media, the Democratic Party, our candidates, and our credibility are doomed in this election,” reads one email exchange between state Democratic leaders.

An email chain between those Democratic leaders, obtained by The Daily Caller, indicates the executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party, Jay Parmley, and the alleged sexual harassment victim both signed non-disclosure agreements.

re: “Party fears credibility ‘doomed’”

Yeah, right. Teason’s Ok. Killing jobs are Ok. Trashing our military is OK. Continuous lying about the economy, the threat from militant Islam, and illegal immigration is Ok. Also, having sex with a female staffer by a president is Ok - but, this. This (whatever it is) is going to destroy the Dems credibility?????

Didn’t that loss of credibility already happen to the Democrat party decades ago? - at least with anyone who has real values and a moral foundation?

These are DEMOCRATS, so it’s OK.
This would only be a ‘Real’ story if a Republican was doing the harassing.

Just ask anyone at CNN/CBS/NBC/ABC/MSNBC/WashTimes/NYTimes about this.

North Carolina is considered THE make-or-break state for the scumbag Democrats.
This is going to leave a skidmark in the scumbags’ panty wear.

“The Democratic party will always be okay in La Republica Popular de Chapel Hill”

One of several such growing blights on the landscape, unfortunately.

In order for their credibility to be doomed, it would first have to exist.

The chairman of the NC state board of elections, Larry Leake, Democrat, was himself arrested for making obscene phone calls to a child.

When the rats do it it becomes a ‘significant achievement’ bullet on their resume.

“Even with an agreed non-disclosure statement and financial settlement, that appears to be short-lived,” Jones wrote. “It’s making its rounds all over the state and beyond. Is the person responsible still employed? Many questions are unanswered. With a Democratic Party which is suppose [sic] to be fighting to defeat Amendment One [which describes marriage as between one man and one woman] on the May 8 ballot, yet we have this in Goodwin House? How does that look?”

The question of appearances by Jones may imply that the harassment was same-sex in nature, which might complicate Democratic messaging in the party’s efforts to defeat the anti-gay-marriage amendment.

“Rest assured there is a statewide gathering (I am told) that are upset over this and want people held accountable,” Jones continued. “In all honesty, I am being told by several reliable sources that the Associated Press is itching to get this out. Thankfully, some are trying to stop it. Do we want the Republicans to get this information? They are also asking questions.”

Jones added that he expects that the “Democratic Party, our Candidates, and our credibility are doomed in this election,” if the alleged sexual harassment story is made public.

What is the problem? Their constituents are DEMOCRATS. “Sexual Harassment” should be a resume enhancer for a Democrat.

Y’all have a bunch of them over there, for sure. I think there are some leaks though- they seem to be seeping into the rest of the state.

This is (or, at least as of a few minutes ago, was) the #1 link on Drudge below his lead stories (tax returns of POTUS and VPOTUS).

North Carolina Democrats are still in a state of shock after the 2010 elections, and the subsequent redistricting which should keep them out of power for at least the next decade. So, they have to engage in some fun pursuits to while the time away -- like chasing skirts -- or pants, as the case may be.

Will the two big (Dem) papers in North Carolina, the [Raleigh] News & Observer, and the Charlotte Observer, cover this story, or do any digging on it?

Well, maybe I owe the News & Observer an apology; they're going with the story: Click.

And the money quote:

"If this hits the media, the Democratic Party, our candidates and our credibility are doomed in this election,” wrote Jones, according to a copy obtained by The News & Observer.

Doomed, he said. Bwahahaha.

Well I wasn't contradicting you.
You didn't even add a snippet with any name in it so I don't see why you're bothering to jump on me.
As you can see I checked it too to make sure it was right.
It's pretty easy to get a name like that wrong by mistakenly adding a letter.

Congratulations to him.
