#hayesscandal: New judge? Dem replaced by Republican



The bribery case involving former NCGOP chairman Robin Hayes was slated to be heard by federal Judge (and Democrat)  Max Cogburn — most famous for single-handedly legalizing gay marriage in North Carolina.  Now, it appears that US District Judge Kenneth Bell — a REPUBLICAN and one of the newest federal judges on the bench — will hear the case.



*Sniff, sniff.  Can you SMELL the home-cookin’? *


Bell ran unsuccessfully for the Fifth Congressional District in 1990 as a Republican.  He was nominated to the federal bench by Donald Trump earlier this year.  Bell was confirmed by the Senate and took his seat on the bench FIVE DAYS AGO.
