McHenry has ties to Republican Party's newest alleged sex criminal National Young Republican chair Glenn Murphy (accused of "unwanted" oral sex on a sleeping man.)
Here's the police report. It's not pretty. [UPDATE: if you scroll down that police report, there's a sexual battery police form from 1998 where Murphy's alleged victim is male, 40 pound lighter and the witness is the victim's girlfriend.]
McHenry peeps Laura Harvey and Frank Williams were quoted in a YR email from February:
National Committeewoman Laura Harvey said, "I am honored to support Team Murphy and look for great things to come from this exceptional group of people. They understand where our organization has been and what will need to be done to build on that momentum to make the 2007 and 2008 elections a productive and positive experience for each and every state."
"In my view, one of the keys to building a successful organization is to get the right people on board from the outset," said Frank Williams, a former NCFYR Chairman. "Glenn Murphy has assembled a team that has the experience, background and vision needed to take the YRNF to the next level. Members of Team Murphy have played a key role in righting the ship over the past two years, and I believe they have what it takes to move our organization to new heights."
YRNF Chairman Candidate Glenn Murphy (IN) said he was proud to have the support of Young Republicans in North Carolina.
But some North Carolina YRs were against the endorsement. At least one YR whose email was forwarded to me feels the vote was pushed through without due consideration. This was part of a long email about "getting along" and reasons why the NC YRs should have held out on a national endorsement:
The vote was rushed so quickly from what I have been told that it was more of a page out of former Speaker Jim Black's book - not a issue that was given "thoughtful consideration" . . .No mention of what was so "personal" about the endorsement.
Folks can threaten and bully all they want but the proof is in the pudding. Out of the dozen or so folks I've talked to about this endorsement, none thought it was given due diligence . . .
I believe that you have done a great disservice to our state federation by making a hasty endorsement which by all accounts the only basis of which is personal
