NC Democratic party Executive Director Jay Parmley resigns, blames right-wing bloggers…
To refresh people’s memories: allegations came out last week that NC Democratic party Executive Director Jay Parmley had sexually harassed a male staffer (the Daily Caller noted yesterday that local reports are saying that said staffer was also allegedly fired after making a complaint; if that’s true, then there’s a bigggggggggg problem going on in North Carolina right now for the Democratic party*). Anyway, Parmley | Read More »
Bob Etheridge expected to concede at 3 PM.
Oh, did we steal his thunder? Did he want to admit to his loss on his own terms? Yeah, I’m really broke up about that. Congratulations, Rep.-elect Renee Elmers. Serve well. Moe Lane (crosspost) PS: Remember, folks: two cameras. Always have two cameras.

Day Two of the Etheridge Incident.
I’m not particularly surprised that the Etheridge Incident is perturbing the Beltway.

Plus, of course, | Read More »

Bob Etheridge (D, NC-02) attacks student.
This is why you need to have two cameras. The first one, to record being assaulted by a sitting Congressman (Bob Etheridge, D, NC-02): …and a second one, to record the person recording being assaulted by a sitting Congressman (Bob Etheridge, D, NC-02):
