Ellmers-Etheridge: The Sequel ???

Bev’s Christmas going down the drain FAST

No justice at all in Bev’s veto

    Once again, Ms. Perdue-Eaves is standing in the way of common sense in Raleigh.   Our Boss Lady (til 2012) vetoed the legislature’s repeal of the 2009 Racial Justice Act. The original 2009 legislation, rammed through by a Democrat majority on Jones Street,…
