Allegations that a local Democratic official and her husband were involved in satanic rituals that included shackling people to beds, caging them and depriving them of food and water have horrified county party leaders.
Joy Johnson, 30, a third vice-chairwoman of the Durham County Democratic Party and vice chairwoman of the Young Democrats, was charged Friday with two counts of aiding and abetting.
Her husband, Joseph Scott Craig, 25, was charged with second-degree rape, second-degree kidnapping and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon for an incident in January and another in May.
The two made an appearance in court Monday morning after spending the weekend in the Durham County jail.
The strangest thing about this story is that the party affiliation was mentioned. That usually only happens when a Republican is involved.
Update: Another Democrat busted!
