North Carolina Dem Chair Won't Step Down Immediately But Won't Seek Reelection

The Raleigh News & Observer obtained documents detailing the allegations made by the former staffer -- Adrian Ortega -- who reached a legal settlement which was approved by Parker. "I did not want to settle this case. Our lawyers settled the case differently from what I wanted to do," Parker said on Thursday. Parker defended Parmley and his record and said that he didn't feel like his decision to remain in his position is an affront to Perdue, even though she has called on him to step aside. He maintained that he bears no ill will toward members of his own party calling for his resignation and vowed to support all of them who end up as the party's nominees for public office in the fall. "There was no creation of a hostile environment nor was there was there sexual discrimination sufficient to warrant termination for cause of Mr. Parmley," he said. "David Parker made the right decision to resign effective immediately following the next executive committee meeting of the NCDP," said DNC Executive Director Patrick Gaspard. "This is in the best interest of the Party. The NCDP should convene this meeting as soon as possible."
