Davidson County Democratic Party Chairman Rodney Mullins resigned Thursday morning amid child pornography allegations, according to press secretary Jean Carter Wilson of the Davidson County Democratic Party.
Wilson said authorities searched one computer at the Democratic Partys French Landing headquarters in MetroCenter. Wilson said they did not seize that computer. Metro Police spokesperson Don Aaron said Thursday that Mullins has not been arrested.
Metro Police and the FBI are jointly investigating.
Our chairman has stepped down and he has not been arrested, Wilson said. I am told what is happening is he is being investigated for allegations of child pornography on a computer.
We at the Party didnt know anything about this and we hate like heck that it has happened and we are just trying to gather our resources, she said.
Several phone calls to Mullins were not returned.
Tennessee Democratic Party Chairman Randy Button issued a statement Thursday saying he had been informed of the resignation and that Mr. Mullins is being investigated concerning crimes involving child pornography. If true, this is very disturbing and regrettable news.
We dont have a lot of facts concerning this case, but if true, these are very serious allegations, Button said. As a parent, I am very disturbed by any activity that exploits children.
Federal laws provide for both criminal and civil penalties for possession or distribution of child pornography in some cases.
Wilson said the Davidson County Democratic Party has a full slate of elected officials to lead the party that includes Acting Vice Chair Bob Cooper.
Mullins, 35, had served as chairman for about a year, Wilson said. A new chairman could be elected as early as June.
Mullins had also served as the Tennessee for Dean coordinator for Howard Deans presidential campaign in 2004.

Why resign? He's just embracing diversity! Child porn for a Democrat is a BFOQ.
Maybe he was just doing research like Pete Townshend of The Who...
Calling Tennesse Freepers!
P.S. Not a word of this in the Tennessean.
It isn't exclusive to the RATS unfortunately.
GOP fundraiser Richard Anthony Delgaudio who called Clinton a bad example for children was convicted of taking pornographic photos of children.
Well, it seemed like breaking news to me. Sorry.
Thoroughly unsurprising. There are only two types of Democrats - ones that have been caught, and ones that haven't been caught yet.
Couldn't happen to a nicer party.
I pray it happens more. Democrats are pure scum.
Raising money FOR and being the HEAD OF a party are two significantly different positions, but both need to be taken out and shot.
HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! All Rats must be destroyed!!!
does that mean the gay agenda is over?
Don't worry - the ACLU will rush to his rescue!
I was just readin' the message board of "Nashville Paper"...
