RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- The North Carolina Democratic Party has hired someone within its ranks to oversee party operations temporarily following the resignation of its executive director in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.
The party says Tammy Brunner is the interim executive director of the party. She most recently was the party's director of operations. She previously served as executive director of the Wake County Democrats and as a worker in Erskine Bowles' US Senate campaigns.
A party spokesman said Brunner began a few weeks ago. It's unclear when a permanent director will be named.
Brunner assumed the post a month after Jay Parmley resigned from his job. Documents show a former party headquarters employee accused Parmley of harassment and being wrongly fired when he spoke up about it. Parmley denied any harassment.
