WDDE: Flowers Considers Resignation

Filed in National by on August 14, 2014

I don’t believe this at all, given the current state of play and what we publicly know. So there must be another shoe about to drop.

Embattled State Treasurer Chip Flowers could resign after a former deputy accused him of harassment. Delaware Public Media contributor Jeff Mordock of Delaware Law Weekly reports sources tell him Flowers may step down as early as Friday and abandon his run for second term this fall. Reports of Flowers possible resignation come about a day after reports surfaced of former Deputy Treasurer Erika Benner filing harassment claims against her former boss.

    Hard to believe.

    The shoe may be a thick steel toe boot at this rate. 50 Shades of Grey has nothing on this story. The hits keep coming. I am not shocked by anything at this point. I am just waiting for Benner’s side of the story with evidence. If she doesn’t have the goods to back it up, then she not only wasted time but someone’s career.

    She has already been to the police twice – what else do you want, a sex tape? It sounds like she has told as much as she can without implicating herself in the process.

    Puck, I guess I’m waiting for her full out launch campaign. I don’t think we have really heard the last from her at all. I wish we did so this could just be done and over with this story. I don’t need a sex tape, the fact that she saw the fiancĂ©’s pictures is too much to take.

    He went to the Patriots game on the tickets Benner bought on her credit card.

    Is that a change in story?

    Ms McZumba Benner?

  13. cassandra m says:

    The only Black to ever win state wide done in by the Delaware Way the GOP has been doing this shit to President Obama since 2008

    Anyone without an agenda can see that he was done in by his enormous ego.

    Last week, before the bombshell, Chip saw that he was headed to Rita Justice territory, and decided to create himself a constituency … by politicking on Jessup Street.
