The political class CANNOT police itself.

  The state board of elections says its A-OK for Democrats on local boards (like inRobeson and Bladen counties)  to donate to Democratic candidates and campaign for (and with) them.  Substantial pay-to-play allegations against powerful Republican legislators (like David Lewis) disappear into a black hole…

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…

It’s ALIVE! (Chicken plant is back to take another peck at Speaker Timmy)

#ncga: Complaint against Speaker Timmy dismissed on NCSBE&EE’s last day of life

Wayne Goodwin needs to shut up. (Seriously.)

There’s nothing like listening to a lecture on ethics and good behavior from a confirmed sleaze.  But that’s what the driveby media is subjecting us to.  And state Democrat Party chairman Wayne Goodwin is more than happy to oblige them.   Goodwin is all over…

#ncga: Moore money, Moore problems.

At least THAT is the name of a new website that has popped up. No, it’s not talking about my beloved county of residence, but about the pride and joy of Kings Mountain, Speaker Timmy.  Clearly the evil masterminds behind this new site are bent…

#ncga: Aaaaaaaaand HERE come the skeletons!

Here we are, less than a week before early voting,  and all kinds of folks’ dirty laundry is coming over the transom.  (I think I am going to have to bring on a few interns to help weed through all this.) Let’s get started with…
