#ncga: Bob Steinburg? Audited. (And the Dare County D.A. was nowhere in the vicinity.)

  Does everybody remember when Senator ‘Pickle’ declared war on Dare County’s top prosecutor for daring to pursue criminal charges against the senator’s top legislative and campaign aide?  (We do.)     Well, the toothless state board of elections has audited the campaign account of…

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…

#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…

#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…
