Why Obama Just Can't Win -- Chaos at Democrat County Conventions in North Carolina

A few weeks ago, I wrote about How Obama Just Can't Win; North Carolina plays a key role in that analysis.

This morning, a source in Texas pointed out this story to me.  It reveals utter chaos in the North Carolina Democrat Party and it's worth quoting at length:
The executive director of the North Carolina Democratic Party resigned Sunday amid increasing frustrations and ire among party activists over high turnover at the party headquarters and harassment allegations there.... 
The dustup following the [sexual harassment] emails led party activists meeting at county party conventions Saturday to call for the resignations of Parmley and party Chairman David Parker....  
Parmley's departure is the latest setback for a state party that has been coming to terms with Republicans controlling the state House and Senate for the first time in 140 years. Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue surprised many in January by announcing she wouldn't seek re-election, forcing other Democrats to scramble to mount primary campaigns. Six Democrats are running in the May 8 primary.... 
The Democratic National Convention will be held in Charlotte in less than five months.
Ouch.  This is disastrous for Democrats in North Carolina.  Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if we find out about much bigger financial shenanigans down the road.
