#ncga: (Back-stabbing and intimidation, oh my.) YET EVEN MORE fear & loathing in the caucus room
In the wake of the announcement of Harry Warren’s challenge to Tim Moore for the House speakership, my GOP House caucus sources tell me the following warning has been handed down from the current speaker’s allies:
“If you even think about speaking highly about Harry Warren, your life will be over. If you even think about hanging out with someone we think supports Harry Warren, we will make your life miserable. If you are seen gazing longingly in the direction of Harry Warren, you are done. If there is even the slightest whiff of Harry Warren that can be detected on you, you’re done here in Raleigh.”
Wow. That sounds even more ominous than what they’ve been threatening my still-undiscovered moles with.
*It’s so nice to see that it’s about unity and pressing a conservative agenda. Not about a cult of personality, cliques, gangster-style pay-to-play or anything selfish or seedy like that.*
The vote is Monday on the GOP nominee for House speaker. And the arm twisting is FIERCE. We understand that at least ONE high-profile Republican, who has been critical of Moore, has approached Team Moore with a proposal: “Give me a top chairmanship next go around, and I’ll either skip the vote entirely or attend and abstain. And I’ll take three more folks with me.”
*Oh, it’s so nice to see that it truly is all about serving the folks back home, and not about personal ambitions or anything.* I HOPE HOPE HOPE this legislator and their pals follow through with that. I have the detailed goods to seriously call them out by name on it.

Harry Warren is the biggest amigo of the illegal aliens in the legislature, and he is thus no prize. But this heavy handed and dictatorial behavior by Tim Stalin . . . err . . . Tim Hitler . . . err . . . Tim Boehner . . . err . . . Tim Moore(gan) seems to make Warren the lesser of the evils.
[“If you even think about speaking highly about Harry Warren, your life will be over……If even the slightest whiff of Harry Warren that can be detected on you, you’re done here in Raleigh.”]
I don’t know Harry Warren but boy oh boy, I wish I would’ve been the recipient of a love note like that when I was serving up there in the Jones Street bordello…..I’d probably vote for the other guy and give the speaker the one finger salute just to (you know) the oligarch off.
Never Never Never Ever Ever Ever yield to the Raleigh leadership goon squad boys and girls. Remember the oath you take on opening day. Who cares what the speaker and his goon squad think. It’s not about being re-elected. Serve your people first. That is your first and highest calling.
Honor and integrity are seriously short supply in the NCGA these days.
I was at the caucus and that did not happen
In re-reading the article, I do not see that it contends that this warning was given during a business session of the caucus. Perhaps, since you lost your seat to a Democrat and thus will not be voting on the new Speaker, they did not see any need to provide you with a warning.
BTW, I was sorry that you and Marilyn Avila had weakened your gun rights voting record to the point that the two of you lost your NRA endorsement and those orange postcards they mail out. A stronger gun rights voting record might have helped you keep your seats.
Touchée, John Steed!
I wouldn’t be surprised if Rep. Julia Howard is the Republican you refer to that doesn’t show up. Timmy pushed her to the back and she may be fool enough to make a deal with Timmy and believe he will let her back into the fold. Look for Setzer and McNeill to fall in line behind Tiny Tim too… Backbones and Gumption are scarce within the house. Bunch of sheep!
