The Daily Caller notes that the state Board of Elections still hasn’t responded to the Civitas Institute’s call for an investigation of how the North Carolina Democratic Party funded a settlement of a sexual harassment case.
“It’s unclear as of now if the North Carolina Democratic Party used taxpayer funds in the financial settlement it made with former communications staffer Adriadn Ortega after he alleged former NCDP executive director Jay Parmley sexually harassed him.
“Parmley resigned a little over a week ago after Ortega’s allegations surfaced publicly several months after they were made. With the revelation of Ortega’s allegations came the news that the NCDP made a financial settlement with Ortega and had both Ortega and Parmley sign non-disclosure agreements to keep the issue quiet.
“To this day, it’s unclear if taxpayer money was used to make that financial settlement and the NCDP won’t answer questions.”
