NC Democratic Party Exec. Director resigns

Monday, April 16th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP)– The executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party has resigned in the wake of frustrations by party activists over high turnover at the party headquarters and harassment allegations there.

Jay Parmley joined the party last year as its top administrator. The Associated Press on Sunday obtained a copy of his resignation letter in which Parmley vehemently denied harassing any party worker.

Party Chairman David Parker accepted the resignation and said he believes there have not been grounds to fire Parmley. Other party leaders have raised concerns after emails circulating within the media mentioned the allegations.
