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."
“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.
