Pro-Forest PAC. Charlotte Dems. (Hmmm…. )

  The Truth & Prosperity PAC made headlines some time back for taking a lot of money from Eric Lindberg,  a Durham businessman currently under indictment for bribery-related charges.  The PAC was set up,  we were led to believe, to pave the way for a…

Moore County GOP candidate for DA an OBAMA DONOR ???

  That is what it looks like. In the March 2020 primary,  Hoke attorney Mike Hardin had been primarying incumbent Maureen Krueger.  Krueger dropped out of the race and endorsed Art Donadio.   The state board of elections website indicates there is only ONE Arthur…

Do what you were elected to do, and the sharks come for you

    It’s a sad state of affairs that the three most likely folks to draw well-funded opponents in 2020 are treasurer Dale Folwell, insurance commissioner Mike Causey, and auditor Beth Wood.  All three have done an outstanding job of looking out for the little…

Will complaint against Robeson elections chairman disappear down that same Raleigh ‘black hole’ that ate 2015 ethics complaint against David Lewis?

    Inquiring minds want to know.   It’s easy to say:   “We got Dan Bishop elected, now move on.”   But is it about more than that?  Do we really want to ensure that all 100 counties run elections as cleanly as possible?  Or are…

#ncpol: Holly Grange throws a fit

  “Do you know WHO I am ?????”   That’s a question that likely opens a lot of doors for state Rep. Holly Grange in the vicinity of Raleigh’s Jones Street and among Wilmington’s country-club set.  But earlier this week — out among “the real…
