Currituck leaders defend payments to Steinburg, Steinburg Invitational

The VisitCurrituckOBX.com Battle in The Blue Ridge college basketball tournament happened in Asheville over Thanksgiving.  Nobody broadcast the games on television.  (ESPN didn’t bother streaming it on its  ESPN+ service.)

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

#ncga: A Steinburg Invitational post-mortem

Currituck taxpayers footed the seed money for senator-elect Bob Steinburg’s rookie venture into basketball tournament marketing.  We’ve kept you posted on how it’s been going.  Though, it is interesting how the senator-elect and his company are stone-cold quiet about how the tournament went and what, if any, benefits Currituck County…

Elizabeth City paper: Bob Steinburg needs to apologize.

I know.  I know.  The guy who intersperses his vicious personal attacks on political foes with self-righteous proclamations about his ‘Christianity’ won’t do it. He’ll caterwaul and moan about his young innocent legislative aide being “injured,” but won’t say a word about his (and his inner circle’s) previous bad behavior…

#ncga: Steinburg’s Girl Friday FIRED (on a Tuesday)

It’s interesting  that the Elizabeth City paper has this in its hard copy edition, but not online.  Seems like somebody is trying to do their part to keep the story from going viral on the Internet. (But as long as there is a Haymaker, what needs to go viral WILL go…

#ncga: Team Steinburg preps for war against Dare Co. DA

With most politicians, if an aide runs afoul with the law, the pol and the aide quietly go their separate ways and the subject gets changed.  Bob Steinburg isn’t like most people.  *EVERYBODY — and I mean EVERYBODY — is out to get him.* (And he’s going to GET them…

#ncga: Steinburg’s Girl Friday pleads GUILTY

That’s what my moles in the Dare County Courthouse tell me went down yesterday. Diana London — who works as senator-elect Bob Steinburg’s legislative aide, his top campaign aide, and for his Wolfestein basketball tournament promotion business — was indicted by a Dare County grand jury earlier this year on…

Stein-ball in Asheville: A not so full house.

There hasn’t been  too much crowing about the inaugural effort of senator-elect Bob Steinburg’s Wolfestein Group.  Steinburg loves to brag about himself and his work.  It’s not like him to go so quiet.  As you know from reading our site, the visitcurrituckobx.com Battle in The Blue Ridge was sponsored with…
