The next scandal to smack Raleigh

  To get a preview, just look at what’s already happening south of our state border: Horry County Schools’ $220 million deal with a contractor to build five new schools prompted a state law enforcement investigation, the district revealed Tuesday in a statement.   The statement also reveals that communication between the CEO of First Floor Energy, the contractor selected to design the schools, and a contracted school board attorney…

Did NCGOP HQ drop the ball on Robeson vote fraud?

Some emails we’ve obtained would seem to suggest that. Just the other day,  the state board of elections voted along party lines to certify a Robeson County judicial election that had been  caught up in the hubbub over the Ninth Congressional District race.  The entirety of Robeson County is in  the Ninth District.   One of the biggest reasons given by the state board for a lack of investigation or…

#ncpol: See the Influence-peddler for “struggling rural hospitals” whine and moan about his luxury Caribbean vacation.

It must be tough being a pampered, overpaid Raleigh influence-peddler.  Here’s one right now apparently complaining  about how tough his life is: Let me translate.  @Adam Stewart is the Twitter account for the deputy chairman of Sandals Resorts — the famed all-inclusive vacation chain with locations throughout The Caribbean.  One of their properties is called “Royal Barbados.” Here is the apparent owner of the @SelectSandy account: And last but certainly…

NC-09: More from McCrae

  Some things we’ve learned NO THANKS to this state’s worthless lazy drive by media: (1) There may very well have been other paid operatives in Bladen County doing for the Democrats exactly (or worse than) what McCrae Dowless was doing for Mark Harris. (2) There are credible reports coming out of Robeson County about a BOX of absentee ballots returned to the Robeson County Board of Elections office in…

NC-09: An elections board cover-up of DEM shenanigans in Robeson?

  According to Raleigh’s Voter Integrity Project,  that is exactly what we have, boys and girls:   Around noon today, the NC State Board of Elections ordered Robeson County election officials hand over “newly discovered” evidence that implicates high-profile national and local Democrats in a major absentee ballot harvesting operation that dwarfs the number of ballots involved in Bladen County.   “We’ve been quietly fighting for this and other evidence since…

WSJ: Mike Causey “cooperated secretly” with FBI probe in NC? (Ruh-Roh!)

  The Wall Street Journal dropped quite a stink bomb on #ncpol today: […] A federal criminal investigation, made public in October after subpoenas were issued, is looking into Mr. Lindberg’s political donations and his relationship with North Carolina regulators, according to people familiar with the matter. North Carolina is one of 11 states in which insurance commissioners are elected. The probe also is exploring potential financial misdeeds related to…

Folwell: Rats in NC House to cost taxpayers an extra $1.3 BILLION

  The rat-weasel hybrids in the North Carolina House seeking to strip state treasurer Dale Folwell of some of his most important duties and kick the can on fixing  the troubled state health plan down the road a little further have added two more “Republicans” to their ranks:  Bobby Hanig and Ray Warren.  House Bill 184 blocks Folwell from instituting any reforms or changes of any kind to the state…

#ncga: Statist math (and a ponderous question)

  I ran across this on Twitter tonight. HOW does something called “Paid” which targets state employees — who are paid by tax dollars — cost the taxpayers “zero dollars”? *Will the law firms of Messrs.  Chaudhuri and Britt be picking up the tab?* (Asking for a friend.)

#ncga: It’s a veritable RAT parade ….

  They’re coming out of the woodwork in the North Carolina House to shiv treasurer Dale Folwell.   For the unpardonable, inexcusable sin of trying to increase efficiency and save taxpayer money in regard to the state health plan. The latest weasel-rat-RINO  hybrids to sign their name to H184, which prevents Folwell from doing anything that might decrease or halt the flow of hospital lobbyist cash to the pockets of…

#ncga: Even more RATS pile on Folwell in the House

  We told you earlier about a bill promoted — and likely drafted by — the hospital lobby to screw over treasurer Dale Folwell.   Well, the list of weasels and rats putting their names on the bill is getting bigger.  Some folks apparently owe the hospital lobby much more than we realized.  Here’s an updated list of the sponsors: Rep. Chris Humphrey (R) — Mr. right place, right time….
