THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Specifically, they told her she’d be better off if she joined the men’s auxiliary! The Democratic Women of North Carolina (DWNC) told Janice Covington, who was elected by the North Carolina Democratic Party to represent the state at the Democratic National Convention in 2012, that she could not belong to this association.
Covington was first approached by the DWNC and was asked to become a member. She filled out an application and paid the membership fee. A month or so later, there was a follow-up call from the membership committee chair, and she was informed that she was a member.
However, at a recent political event, Covington was told by a board member that she could not belong to the association and was better off joining the men’s auxiliary. Covington told her it wasn’t acceptable. The board member then said, it would have to be put to a vote.
This is pretty much a huge blunder on the part of the DWNC and it needs fixing pronto!
