Darren Glymph

The 20,000 emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee's computers continues to shake up the Democratic Convention.

In one internal memo released on Friday by WikiLeaks, a DNC staffer named Julia Lahl complains bitterly that a gay VIP named Darrin Glymph is too "high maintenance" for her to handle.

The email, which is titled “Close out memo” and dated April 22, 2016, describes Glymph as “extremely high maintenance.”

Glymph was one of the 3 hosts who organized a Democratic fundraiser held in Washington, D.C. in May 2015.

The memo describes the event as “wildly successful” in recruiting gay men to "get involved" in the Democratic party's LGBT Leadership Council.

But Lahl didn't appreciate working with Glymph, whom she said was too difficult for the $5,000 check the DNC was paying him to help organize the gay event.

“Darrin would like to become more involved but he is hard to get in touch with and is extremely high maintenance,” Lahl wrote in the internal memo. “I found him to be too much work for what he is worth (maybe a 5k check).”

Glymph, who won an award for leadership in the 2016 D.C. Black Gay Pride, is described by the DNC as “one of the movers and shakers in the LGBT community."

    These days it pays to not speak evil or be evil because technology has a way of bringing sh*t out to light. welp

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Michelle www simply flawless. Just flawless.

  • Mmm…Okay

    I didn't read anything here that suggested he was high maintenance because he is gay, guess it's supposed to be assumed...*Shrugs*

  • harley_quinn2.0

    So we not gonna acknowledge that Michelle Obama is the G.O.A.T.....??

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Melania thieving non referencing or crediting self got a post, so I know Michelle's is coming, regardless of how much shade will be involved...

  • Hater

    Looks like an obituary in truth.... lol.

  • January Jones

  • GuestSTAR

    Love the DNC Convention so far. The speeches have been inspirational and uplifting. Michelle's speech had me in tears. She should speak every night.
    BTW: I didn't think Cory Booker had it in him.

  • Melissaisasnob

    Most gay men are always high maintenance. They want attention 24/7. Actually, that's most successful men. You have to point at their poop and say, OH HOW WONDERFUL! LOOK AT THE SHAPE AND SIZE. NO ONE IN THE HISTORY OF EVER HAS EVER POOP AS GRAND AS YOU HAVE!!!!!

  • Melissaisasnob

    I only tease, because I care. lol.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I don't like that word, that's why I didn't use it, lol. I googled him and his picture options are few but still? Somebody basically used a previous photo and made this

  • Make this easy

    Good morning Sandra and everyone...

    Watch the first lady Michelle Obama's MOVING, POWERFUL & INSPIRATIONAL speech at last night's Democratic national convention. Such a strong beautiful woman right!

  • mela.reign77

    Why does the photo up top look like an obituary? Had me about to slide down the wall in my Ms. Bernice voice, why didn't nobody tell me that....wait a minute oh that's not James. LMBO!!!!!!!! Please don't mind me I've had two cups of coffee and I'm wired and being extra silly right now. Good morning everyone!!!! :)

  • Melissaisasnob

    Because whoever made it is used to making them on desktop publishing for exactly that, funerals. They forgot themselves.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    That line in the middle of his beard (don't know specific style) is crooked. Or maybe the whole beard is crooked. I even tilted my head ?

  • Akhenaton

    Darrin like:

  • Handle your issues

    Uh huh interesting.........but did you hear first lady Michelle Obama's speech????

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I guess this is a story because of his sexual orientation. I don't get it.

    Anyways, those of you with prime television, Issa Rae has a new series premiering on HBO called Insecure. Kinda reminds me of ABG. #Support.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    When does it premiere

  • Blaque Mahogany

    This Fall. Not sure of the exact date.

  • Melissaisasnob

    He can act like that all he wants but there comes a point when you have to play the game or get stuck at the highest level you are currently playing at. I was hard-headed when I was younger. Sometimes, you have to leave the Diva at home (and the social injustice warrior) when dealing with certain business people.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    IT IS ALL COMING OUT!
    WE NEED AN RNC LEAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    For what? We already know they are misogynistic bigoted inbred uneducated racist. I mean I don't need a leak but I guess...

  • Akash Patel

    I am confused as to why someone would use WORK email to make these comments these DNC staff members have been making.

  • Melissaisasnob

    I was so proud of him last night.
    Right here is where I said "America is about to meet Cory Booker" (link to speech after quote)

    "Native Americans were referred to as savages, black Americans were referred to as fractions of human beings, and women were not mentioned at all.But those facts and other ugly parts of our history don’t detract from our nation’s greatness."

  • Hater

  • Buttercup

    I recall a few weeks ago they were at an event, and she appeared to have a little pudge. She said it was just her stomach and not knowing her angles. Maybe she was trying to get out of the first trimester before letting the world know.

  • Hater

    She had that «fluffy» look....

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Sandra already told you he couldn't have boys because he wasn't a real man. Something about his eyebrows and testosterone levels.

  • Just Keya

  • nicelyput32

    When she said she was living in a house built by slaves...My God, My God???

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Speaking of Michelle Obama;s speech. Someone tweeted Kelly Clarkson and said that they didn't like it when Michelle said the slaves built the white house. Kelly responded and was like, pretty sure the slaves didn't like building it. Rofl.

  • Just Keya

    So my question is did they not like her saying it because it made them uncomfortable or because they think slaves did not build it? Smdh. Like it or not it's true. Not said often, but very true.

    I found him to be too much work for what he is worth..........

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    So what... There are high maintenance people to work for everywhere. You either deal or leave.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Well chit, is he?!?! Maybe he is high maintenance. The way I see it, we would all be in deep chit if someone hacked into the server and released our emails gossiping here and there about coworkers....

  • yoni

    Good shit!

  • nicelyput32

    Some sprites think we should be over or get over slavery. Clearly not understanding the residual effects of slavery even today.

  • Melissaisasnob
  • Vonn

    Yes, yes, and more yes. There has never been a first lady of this caliber, NEVER!!

  • EXECUTIVE LURKER

    FLOTIS is a class act, and her words were uplifting regarding this Nations History of Slavery and how remarkable it is that.... indeed there is Black First Family in the White House.

    She delivered an amazing speech in support of Hillary, and elevated Clinton to Historic level, there will be no other Speech at this Democratic convention that will top her hers in terms of showing over whelming praise and support for Hillary...........Unfortunately Hillary didnt deserve a single word of it.......

    Considering when Obama and Hillary where going head to head before Obama was eventually elected....Hillary is qouted as saying Obama wasnt electable, that he didnt look like the majority of the constituants, meaning that he couldnt carry the white vote. Not to mention Hillarys comments about Black Youth being Super Preditors. Bill Clinton went as far as saying Obama was arrogant to believe he could be President would have been getting his coffee back in the day.Bill Clintons lopsided, 3 strikes your out law targeted the inner city that praised him as the "First Black President."

    I cringed as I heard the praises she lauded on Hillary. The two faced, slick, back stabbing corrupt, pandering, manipulative, Clintons didnt deserve a single of word of such an elegant,and powerful speech.

    I do think Michelle Obama would be an excellent contender for the first Woman President. Wouldnt you agree.....?

    Funny story.....a temp covered for me and they forgot to remove her access to my emails when I returned. (We kept her on, as there was another position coming up.) Anyhoo, when I got back she got too full of herself and I had to remind her that she was temping in my absence...NOT taking my position. Long story short, as coworker and I emailed about her antics, etc and made some jokes about the VP I supported and she went to HR with the emails.

    Um, Miss Ma'am....you weren't supposed to have access to them anymore, so you do realize that you look untrustworthy? In the end, my comments about the VP were things I had said to him on more than one occasion about his excessive coffee drinking and I was the one who let the agency know her services were no longer needed, as she was in possession of emails that she no longer had permission to view. Her excuse...They didn't remove the rights!! The answer, But you knew that you were supposed to be off and you didn't let them know you still had access!!

    Been following her since ABG. I'm so proud of her. The trailer looks awesome. I'm low key obsessed. I follow most of the writers on snapchat and instagram. The showrunner too ? I've been taking note of the directors they have on board. Melina is directing the pilot episode so I know it's gone be ?. I'm just so happy to see all those black creatives at work, telling our stories. When I saw an IG video of the writer's room I recalled seeing 1 white person lol. The writing team is almost exclusively comprised of black women and men. The showrunner is a black man as well. #Proud
