Calls mount on social media for Rep. Duane Hall to resign following allegations of sexual harassment

State Rep. Duane Hall is under increasing pressure from members of his own party to step down in the aftermath of an NC Policy Watch story  that detailed five sources who described “persistent sexual innuendo from the three-term legislator and, in some cases, repeated, unwanted sexual overtures.”

Hall has denied the allegations.

Here’s what some of his colleagues and other political observers are saying in response on Twitter and Facebook:

    What a group of lemmings. A culture of innuendo ruins lives based on nothing.

    The on the record accusation is talk at a bar? What a joke. I’ve heard worse at a gas station.

    Wasn’t Jessie a campaign worker who could not get a job with her boss Sen. Jay Chaudhuri?

    Did she leave NC because no one would hire her in the legislature?

    There is something very wrong here and it is inside pool, gossip and poor reporting.

    These Democrats are acting on no information or investigation. No leadership shown here.

    Why is NC Policy moving from a serious policy group to a gossip rag?

    Are you going to start running gossip about republicans next? That’s not why we donate to you.

    I’ve heard more than one person say that it was Jessie that was aggressive with Duane.
    And now he’s due to get married in May.

    Hmmm.

    Anonymity has no place in any of this. Whoever-is-calling-itself-Wake-Democrat is almost unworthy of the title if s/he’s not going to put his/her name on it. The same ought to apply to NCPW’s sourcing but alas, that ship has sailed.
