North Carolina Democrat Steps Down Amid Sex Claims

Jay Parmley, the executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party, resigned "as questions mounted about a secret agreement to pay a former staffer to keep quiet about sexual harassment allegations," the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

He denied harassing any employee and blamed right-wing political enemies for "spreading a false and misleading story."

He added, "Even though I have not done anything wrong, it is clear to me that I need to move on."
