A. P. Dillon’s post yesterday is a scathing, and in depth piece on the corruption that is occurring behind the scenes in the NCDP.
The story centers around a twenty-one year old Democratic 8th congressional chair, who is plagued with issues like multiple voting records, two NC district locations, proxy manipulation of voting in internal NC Democratic elections; as well as a slate of interactions with law enforcement, and a pending charge of alleged domestic violence.
On three separate occasions, members of the 8th CD contacted the Officers of the North Carolina Democratic Party and filed formal complaints to remove Dylan Frick.
One for the complaints had at least 22 signatures.
In order for complaints to move forward, in the NC Dem Party, they must first go before the Officers of the Party, in order to determine the weight of the matter.
Chairwoman Patsy Keever. is ultimately responsible for keeping this twenty one year old in his position of power and there is no way to overlook the error of her jugement. She’s the boss of the NCDP, and she could have moved this issue to it’s logical conclusion. She could have done it quietly and in a timely matter. But, she decided otherwise.
If she had, I doubt any of Mr. Frick’s issues would have ever come to light, and I doubt the Republicans would be having this field day. I’ve already had several tell me, “See, THIS is why we need a voter ID. This is what’s wrong with your Party.”
Keep in mind, that North Carolina Democrats didn’t move this issue forward. Apparently, Mr. Frick pissed off some South Carolina College Democrats, when he was voting in Charleston. They found out he was elected the Chair of the 8th Congressional District, they started an email campaign and now we have this mess.
But, now that the cat is out of the bag, we’re aware of his failure to complete his probation. And, there is no way the Chair of the North Carolina Democratic Party could have not known about this and his criminal record.
Especially, in a presidential year, these are not the things we need to fight against as Democrats.
Not only has Chairwoman, Patsy Keever mishandled the Dylan Frick issue, but she mishandled the removal of the head of the judicial body of the NCDP: Mr. John Brooks.
Not only has she mishandled those two issues, in what I consider ethical violations in the Party’s Plan of Organization, but she mishandled a matter in the 3rd congressional district concerning Chris Hardee who was Chair of the NC 03, and she manipulated the Executive Council in rendering an inadequate decision over the matter of his removal.
Some members of the Executive Council of the NCDP are respected politicians. So, it would seem the Chair of the NCDP has no problem manipulating elected officials to do her bidding.
The Democratic members of the Council of State need to have a serious sit-down conversation with Patsy Keever. Or, pretty soon, we won’t have a Democratic Party left in N.C.
Her mishandling of internal Democratic matters will ultimate spell doom for any candidate running. As long as Patsy Keever is Chair of the NCDP, I hope Roy Cooper has a rabbit’s foot in his pocket.
No wonder the DSCC, after all the good people they’ve flown to DC and talked with, can’t find anyone to run against Richard Burr.
