Carolina Journal reports:
Dallas Woodhouse, former TV reporter and grass-roots activist, announced Monday, April 15, he would leave his position as executive director of the N.C. Republican Party after the party’s state convention in June.
“My contract expires at the end of the state convention. With the election of a new State Chair, and after four challenging years, a tenure longer than most in this post, I am moving on,” he wrote in a text to WRAL News.
The NCGOP’s executive committee met Sunday night to discuss Woodhouse’s future with the party. Acting state party Chairman Aubrey Woodard said Monday that Woodhouse would stay through June 15.
State party Chairman Robin Hayes was indicted, along with megadonor Greg Lindberg and two of Lindberg’s associates, several weeks ago in an alleged bribery scandal targeting state Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey. Causey cooperated with federal investigators.
Woodhouse has said he testified in December before the federal grand jury investigating the alleged scheme. He wasn’t indicted and has said he isn’t a subject of or target of the probe.
