Young (and Restless) Republicans

The chairman of the Young Republican National Federation has resigned his job amid an investigation of criminal deviate conduct. No charges have been filed so far.

Glenn Murphy, Jr is the Clark County GOP Chairman in Indiana.

Mr Murphy resigned both his posts the same day a police report on the investigation appeared on a state political blog -- Taking Down Words.

The police report says a man complained that -- after a night of drinking at a Young Republican party -- he and Mr Murphy had stayed at a friend's house. The man says he was awakened the next morning by Mr Glenn performing oral sex on him.

Mr Glenn denies the charges and says his resignations are simply becasue a client at his ad agency wants him to stay out of partisan politics. (Courier-Journal)
