NC-09: Were Bladen DEMS tipped off about pending state board of elections probe of McCrae Dowless?

  THAT is what it’s starting to look like: […] The President of the Bladen County Improvement Association says he was tipped off that the North Carolina State Board of Elections would be investigating McCrae Dowless and absentee ballot programs in Bladen County during the…

EXCLUSIVE: The McCrae Dowless interview.

  The man at the center of the political theatrics surrounding the Ninth Congressional District race had a few things to tell us.  Some of it — we’ve heard already.  Some of it was news to us. On February 22, we submitted via email five…

NC-03: The doctor is IN! (And there’s a crowd building in the waiting room.)

It’s probably good to remind the Raleigh drivebys that there is something else to do out there besides stomp on Mark Harris and stalk McCrae Dowless.  There is ANOTHER open race for Congress out on the coast, necessitated by the unfortunate and untimely passing of…

Your authoritarian streak is showing.

  The ideology that claims to be the champion of personal freedom sure is taking a hard-nosed stance against things they don’t like.  Say something that offends one of the Left’s protected groups, and your reputation will be destroyed.  (Try being in office, or running…

Another double-dipper at NCGOP?

  Catherine Whiteford has worked for the NCGOP and proclaimed it needs to be “more open to progressives.”  She got her brains beat out electorally, running for NC House in 2018, by progressive Grier Martin. But the most interesting thing about her?  She was being…

Teflon Kim

  The third luckiest person upon the conclusion of the state elections hearings this  week — behind Dan McCready and Dallas Woodhouse — is state elections supervisor Kim Strach. The stupid, biased driveby media spent so much time focused on Mark Harris crying and where…

We REALLY need the feds in here.

  Some things we’ve learned this week: A criminally-minded political establishment in our state that spans both political parties can subvert the will of the people and GET AWAY WITH IT.  If we don’t make the “right” decision on election day, they will be glad…

NC-09: Shameful driveby scumbags and the money-bleeding outlets that employ them

  Journalism, like politics, has always been dominated by lying and scalawag-ery.  I saw it as a driveby 20-plus years ago.  I’d come home from work, turn on  the news, and wonder if those TV nimrods had actually witnessed the same events I did that…

NC-09: New Robeson elections board chairman donated repeatedly to McCready in 2017, 2018

    Roy Cooper can’t always be counted on to do the ethical thing.  (See The Atlantic Coast Pipeline and Josh Malcolm as examples.) His choice for Robeson County board of elections chairman may be yet another example of his crossing an ethical line.  Robeson…

Dallas Woodhouse, the “gift” that keeps on giving

  It was awfully sweet for those darlings over at McClatchy to illustrate yesterday’s proceedings at the state bar with a pic of Mark Harris bawling his eyes out. The only thing that could top that?  Video and / or photos of McClatchy employees crying…
