    In a story on News 14′s website, Perdue is quoted as saying that she thinks Parker should resign for the “good of the party.”

    “I told him that the party had to get back to focusing on our core values: strengthening schools, creating jobs and expanding opportunities for all North Carolinians,” Perdue said.

    Perdue’s call for Parker’s resignation comes after she told a different local news reporter to “get over it” earlier on Tuesday when asked about the ongoing sexual harassment scandal roiling her state’s party. Perdue is the de facto head of the NCDP as she’s the highest-ranking elected official in the state and a Democrat.

    It’s unclear if Parker will actually resign. NCDP spokesman Walton Robinson has not returned any of The Daily Caller’s requests for comment on the issue.

    This scandal has begun spreading up the chain into the national political realm in recent days, and may have national implications as President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party head to Charlotte, N.C. in just a few months for the Democratic National Convention.

    So first she tells a reporter to "get over it" and now she acknowledges she's been aware of the scandal brewing since late last year.

    NC Gov. Bev Perdue admits first learning about Dem sexual harassment allegations ‘late last year’

    North Carolina Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue admitted late Tuesday evening that she has known about the allegations of sexual harassment within her state’s Democratic Party for at least several months.

    “My team first heard of the personnel matter at the State Party late last year,” Perdue said in a statement. “They promptly relayed these rumors to the party officials responsible for handling personnel matters — the Chairman and the party’s legal counsel, who were already aware of the issue.”

    According to local news outlet WRAL, Perdue spokesman Marc Farinella added that Perdue was made aware of the nature of the allegations back then as well.

    “The governor was told that a party employee was alleging harassment by the executive director and that the executive director was categorically denying the allegation,” Farinella said. “She was also told that the chairman and legal counsel had launched a process to address the issue in an appropriate manner consistent with applicable law.”

    You mean what happened decades ago and where the allegations were pretty murky? Funny how you haven't seemed all that concerned about John Edwards and that ongoing disaster that the party you spin for wanted to make Vice President.

    Leading NC Democrat, already accused of sexual harassment, now faces ex-girlfriend’s HIV accusation

    Rebecca Burgin, a long-time former girlfriend of former North Carolina Democratic Party executive director Jay Parmley, told The Daily Caller that she believes Parmley infected her with HIV.

    Parmley resigned on April 15 amid sexual harassment allegations from a former young male staffer.

    Burgin, a 29-year-old Oklahoman, has shared her story with TheDC, including the revelation that Parmley’s lawyer offered her health coverage, paid for by the Democratic National Committee, to manage her illness. She ultimately declined that offer, fearing it would constitute insurance fraud. Parmley, she said, abandoned her a few months later.

    On April 13, TheDC first exposed allegations, leveled in December by former North Carolina Democratic Party communications staffer Adriadn Ortega, that Parmley showed him a picture of a penis, gave him unwanted shoulder rubs and made apparent sexual advances toward him. Ortega also alleged that Parmley discussed with him in detail his past sexual activity, including “solicit[ing] sex from gay websites.”

    Parmley’s ex-girlfriend Rebecca Burgin told TheDC that Parmley forever changed her life by making her HIV-positive. She’s worried, she said, that Parmley may have done to someone else what he did to her.

    As this scandal continues to unravel, the irony to the meme partisans are saying is a "War on Women" is that they cover up their own less than stellar record.

    Remember this?

    The Obama Administration can't even keep his security detail in line. Of course if Democrats were really interested in fighting a "War on Women" maybe they should join the teaparty?
