Grievances aimed at Mississippi Democratic leader
As 2015 statewide elections kick off, Mississippi Democratic Party Chairman Rickey Cole faces complaints from his second in command about spending and raising money, management and failing to follow orders from the party's executive committee.
A list of grievances by party Vice Chairwoman Vallena Greer leaked to The Clarion-Ledger suggests a leader who spends party money without proper authorization, disrespects fellow officers and ignores the state's sole sitting Democratic congressman.
Cole called the allegations "without merit" and the unfortunate byproduct of a personality conflict between him and the party's vice chairwoman. Both were appointed to their positions in 2012 and apparently have clashed since then.
