#ncga: Jim Perry, solar (and wind) goon?

  Methinks Henry Hinton and I gave the freshman Republican senator from Kinston  a wee bit too much credit.   I got the impression from listening to Henry’s Greenville-based radio program that Perry was allied with majority leader Harry Brown to limit the expansion of…

Jones St. drive-bys: Somebody took our “office” space away. (Call a waambulance!)

  Laura Leslie –– who should be unemployed due to the foul social media screeds she posted against conservatives and Christians a few years back — is miffed.  House leadership apparently evicted the lazy drive-bys from their alleged “work” space — where they awaited news…

#hayesscandal: NCGOP vice-chairman candidate cites ROBIN HAYES as her role model

  And she DID IT on Facebook 24 hours before he got slapped with five criminal indictments.  (Talk about timing.)     Mrs. Reidy-Jones (Oh, it is sooooo hard to avoid saying “Rodham-Jones” there.) is vice-chairman of the hapless, disastrous Mecklenburg County GOP. I believe…

Lemons paid fines for his Harnett GOP screwups with NCGOP cash

THIS drive-by HAS a point.

  Occasionally, it happens:     All of you folks who thought it was just brilliant to let Robin hang around during this whole “unpleasantness” with the US Department of Justice must now realize you’ve painted a big ol’ bulls-eye on the party.  I mean,…

#ncpol: Harnett GOP cleaning up Jason Lemons’s mess

  He’s the money man for the state GOP.  He’s no longer the money man for the Harnett County GOP.   Jason Lemons has had more than his fair share of issues with campaign finance compliance.  Running lower-level, county organizations has been a challenge for…

Dallas’s gal-pal thrown into NCGOP vice-chairman race by the Tillises?

  The Tillis reign of terror is apparently continuing.  Our very own version of Bill and Hillary Clinton are busily primarying Dan Forest for the 2020 GOP gubernatorial nomination.  They’re trying to  force Mike Whatley in as NCGOP chairman.  They’re slithering around behind the scenes…
