Jay Parmley, North Carolina Democratic Party Director, Resigns Amid Harassment Allegations


RALEIGH, N.C. -- The executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party has resigned amid concern among party activists about high turnover at the party headquarters and harassment allegations there.

Jay Parmley, who became the top administrator last year after holding a similar post in South Carolina, resigned Sunday.

He wrote in a resignation letter that he had "never harassed any employee at any time at the (state party) or in any other job."

1. ...allegations, which the party has not detailed.

If it was getting to the point of being a distraction, particularly in that state, where the convention will be, it was good that he stepped down.

Even if he's pure as the driven snow, he can clear his name on his own time under his own auspices. It's just too close to NOV for that kind of stuff.

Does anyone have details about these allegations?

“And after Jay and I broke up, the biggest concern that I had was, ‘what if this happened to somebody else? Would he do this to someone else?’ … My biggest concern is for anybody else that has had a relationship with him that he did not tell,” Rebecca Burgin, 29, told The Daily Caller.
