Thilli$$$ theams with ERIC HOLDER on criminal justice “reform”

That’s right.  Our junior US senator is teaming with Barry Obama’s attorney general — the one who sided with the New Black Panthers over regular voters — to “reform” the criminal justice system.  (Feeling better about “holding your nose” in 2014, yet?) Here’s the NY…

#ncga: A bail-bond backtrack

During the last session, there was quite a hubbub over legislation that critics say appeared to directly benefit the family of a legislator close to then-speaker Thom Tillis. Rep. Justin Burr (R-Stanly) and his family have been in the bail bond business across four North  Carolina counties…

#NCSEN: The BIG FAT education spending LIE
