Fools and our money ….
In 2018, the state GOP managed to blow the reelection of a state Supreme Court justice, FOUR appellate court races, and two super-majorities in the legislature.
The state Republican majority only managed to scrape together $825 for then-Supreme Court justice Barbara Jackson in her losing effort. Yet they managed to find nearly $11,000 for county commissioner candidates in Tim Moore’s neck of the woods.
That’s right. A 10/30/18 check for $7500 to Catawba County commissioner Kitty Barnes (R). Apparently, someone had the good sense to STOP PAYMENT on said check on 11/2.
Here we have $3237.70 spent on mail for Cleveland County commissioner candidate Ronnie Whitestine. (Gosh, Speaker Timmy is from Cleveland County. And HE is THE county attorney — working at the pleasure of the commissioners. *What a coincidence.*)
These two Republicans were successful in their November races. But is this yet another example of really poor decision-making at NCGOP HQ that led to poor election results that will likely lead to dire consequences for the state in coming years? (Time will tell.)
One thought on “Fools and our money ….”
Don’t forget the thousands sent out of state, was it Georgia I recall?
