It's been more than a week since the Progressive Democrats of North Carolina issued a statement and a letter to NCDP Chairman David Young asking him to champion a very reasonable request to clean up North Carolina fund raising.
Here's an audio clip of his response:
The only other blip on the radar was a small mention in a Winston Salem Journal op-ed of what NCDP Executive Director Andrew Whalen told The Insider (by 949.00 a yr subscription only) what he thought about PDNC's effort:
After telling The Insider newsletter that the party already supports some of the suggested reforms, he added, "While we welcome and respect the opinions and constructive input of this organization, it is important to note that they are not affiliated with the North Carolina Democratic Party."
So that's it, if we're already considered not affiliated with the party, not worth taking the time to address PDNC directly, or take seriously the reforms that may be able to save the party, I might as well make it official and ask a few thousand of my friends to do the same. After all, I have no interest in belonging to a top-down, good-old boy's club.
