#ncpol: Thom’s Top 20 collusion countdown

Remember back in 2014 when  Thom Tilli$$$ ran for US Senate pledging to collaborate with liberal Democrats and stab the next Republican president in the back every chance he got?  (Yeah, us neither.) I’m curious.  Can Robert Mueller expand his collusion investigation to include Thom Tilli$$$ and his relationship with Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren (D-MA)? At the year’s end, Tilli$$$’s office released their boss’s “Top 20” examples of working “across the aisle” to, um, “get things done.”  (Make sure you read the linked document on an empty stomach.) The “Top 20” includes a whole lot of working with Elizabeth Warren —…

#ncga: Gettin’ PAID with Speaker Timmy

We’ve reported earlier on how the little guy from Cleveland County is making out like a Rockefeller thanks to his political connections.  Now, it appears he’s spreading the love — with other people’s money — to his staff on Jones Street: A day after his reelection as Speaker of the House, the office of Rep. Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) released details of his full staff and their salaries to ABC11. Moore, himself, will make $38,151 in a part-time role. Most of his 15-member staff, with the exception of two interns, are full-time positions. The Speaker’s Chief of Staff, Scott “Bart” Goodson,…

#ncga: Steinburg paid fired, convicted aide with campaign funds

Diana London wore a lot of hats for rookie senator Bob Steinburg — legislative assistant, campaign manager, and employee of his sports marketing firm. London pleaded guilty in early December to larceny — a charge which involved the misuse and misappropriation of funds belonging to a client of her non-Steinburg-related side business.   Steinburg publicly defended London after the plea — accusing  the prosecutor and the judicial system in Dare County of political malfeasance.    The legislator said he had confidence in her, and would keep her on as an employee.  The prosecutor responded by releasing an audio tape featuring…

Despite underwater approval ratings, Tilli$$ keeps servicing donors, dissing voters

If we WANTED a US senator who would: protect ObamaCare, support letting criminals out of prison earlier, block the Republican president’s plan to build a wall on the southern border, side with Democrats in their budget fight with the Republican president, and support further protections for the unconstitutional special prosecutor —  Wouldn’t we have reelected Kay Hagan in 2014? Pretty brash moves for a guy who didn’t even crack the 50% mark in November 2014.   Nevertheless, Thom Tillis  doubled down on those issues and more in a recent op-ed in The Hill.  Among other things, be derides critics of his…

NC-09: Josh Malcolm was warned of Robeson County ballot shenanigans in JUNE

We’ve learned that former state board of elections chairman Joshua Malcolm was having  conversations about ballot shenanigans in Bladen County as early as April 2018.    A pair of senators in Raleigh is seeking answers from Malcolm about the substance of those conversations.  They’re also wanting to know WHY he waited so long to say or do anything about what he learned.  (Malcolm did not make any public statements about concerns regarding voter irregularities until well after the November voting had been completed.)  Well, we’ve confirmed that Malcolm himself was briefed by the Robeson County board of elections chairman on…

Cooper ignored 2010 voting allegations in Bladen

What a difference (nearly) a decade can make.  Word has come out that the SBI was all over some serious allegations of voting irregularities in Bladen County as early as 2010.  The North Carolina Department of Justice was alerted.  Anyone remember WHO was attorney general (AKA head of that department) in 2010? I believe those questions about 2010 now need  to be asked AT the governor’s mansion. (FYI — here’s what happened to the DA at the time — Rex Gore. ) While working in the driveby media, I got to know quite a few law enforcement types — especially…

#ncga: Complaint against Speaker Timmy dismissed on NCSBE&EE’s last day of life

A liberal activist group had filed a complaint against State House speaker Tim Moore over some private business dealings in  Chatham County.  Apparently, the belief was that a Moore aide had meddled in a state environmental review of a property Moore and his business partners were trying to sell for BIG $$$.  Well,  Moore’s office has distributed an order of dismissal on the matter, signed by the NC state board of elections and ethics enforcement’s executive director Kim Strach, to several members of the driveby media. What makes this extra interesting?  The dismissal came on the board’s LAST DAY in…

#ncga: (*CHOKE!*) Folding like one of Jason Saine’s suits.

I guess it was too much to expect the NCGOPe to stand strong for an embattled conservative member of their party.  (Or even to fight for clean elections.  Or defend one of their former House colleagues who lost reelection under shady circumstances.)  We told you about a call from a conservative activist group to delay the seating of state Rep.-elect Rachel Hunt (D-Mecklenburg) due to the discovery of some credible evidence of vote fraud in Mecklenburg County.  Some say more credible than that which caused the Ninth Congressional District seat to be denied certification.  Comments from House Majority Leader John…

#ncpol: The b**ch is BACK !!! (Or IS she ???)

The Democrats have a gaggle of potential candidates seeking the nomination for lieutenant governor in 2020.  With Dan  Forest’s expected run for governor, the seat will be open. We told you about two Republicans already “exploring” a campaign for lieutenant governor.  Now comes a possible third straight out of left field. Credible sources are telling us that North Carolina-based consultants and political operatives are trying to persuade former US Rep. Renee Ellmers (R) to make a run for the #2 spot in state government in 2020.   Ellmers, you may recall, lost a primary race to fellow Republican House member…

Robeson judge smacks down restraints on anti-corruption crusader. (Pols seeking other censorship options.)

Robeson County ranks near the bottom on every list of “good” things.  Unfortunately, they’re near the top of lists of the bad.  Some of those bad things include violent crime, election stealing, and political corruption. Gerome Chavis and his ‘We The People’ group of grassroots activists have been shaking things up hard and fast in and around the county.  The group played a crucial role in the election  of political outsider and underdog Burnis Wilkins to the office of sheriff.  Currently, Chavis and his crew are targeting the county’s board of commissioners — the state’s HIGHEST PAID. The majority on…
