Unlike the people who voted to keep the Chairman despite his regrettable handling of the harassment lawsuit, I worked in democratic campaigns, actively trying to get good Democrats elected. Since Meek left, the party has been dysfunctional. Executive Directors have made decisions so myopic or downright uninformed that they h have on multiple occasions actually hurt the candidates they were supposed to support in both the short and long term. Although the biggest problem lies with the State Executive Committee, who's membership is dominated by folks completely removed from electoral reality.
Here's the important part: the smart, hard-working, mostly younger, campaign workers see this. They see how much better the leadership within NC OFA is. They want to work for strong leadership. These people know the donors, and consciously or not, this message that the NCDP is dysfunctional gets across to them. The key workers and donors won't work for or donate to the NCDP until it gets it's act together.
