Ok. Blogroll is fixed and I took a nap today. Good to go.
First up. Jay Parmley, the director of the North Carolina Democratic Party has resigned his position for trying to get one of his staffers to play Pet My Monkey. The staffer, a male named Adrian Ortega, was allergic to monkeys. Emails have been recovered that indicate:
that the Democratic Party made a financial settlement with Ortega, and that both Ortega and Parmley signed non-disclosure agreements to keep the incident quiet.Actually the party is tranparent, we can see right through it.
Local news outlets have reported that Ortega was fired after he made the sexual-harassment allegations, and that the state party has not been transparent about his firing since it happened.
Next. The Brits have found themselves in another sticky wicket through the actions of one of their "moderate" Muslims.
A Labour peer was suspended last night after allegedly claiming he would put up a £10 million bounty for the capture of Barack Obama.The Brits were put under tremendous pressure to suspend Lord Ahmed by the White House after millions of dollars started to pour into the bounty fund from US voters.
Lord Ahmed of Rotherham is reported to have made the gesture after the U.S. announced a $10 million bounty for Hafiz Muhammed Saeed, whom it blames for orchestrating the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
He is said to have described the bounty on Mr Saeed, who founded banned militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), as an ‘insult to all Muslims’.
