#ncga: Lawyering up in HD-20


It was only a matter of time.  This GOP primary between two very tough ladies — Holly Grange and Tammy Covil —  has been one of the more interesting fights this election year. Hillary Clinton and Benghazi have been players — for the first time in my memory — in a North Carolina General Assembly race.  Now, it appears that Grange has injected a big-time New York City lawyer into the fray:



Of course, the Covil campaign had something to say in response: 

What does a candidate who claims one of her top priorities as your representative will be to demand accountability from state government do when someone tries to hold her accountable? She hires a fancy New York attorney and threatens legal action. Is this the type of Chicago-style poltics we can expect from Holly Grange? 

The Special Committee on Benghazi and the hearings that are ongoing are government accountability. This was demandedTammyCovil_HollyGrange-2 by the poeple because Hillary Clinton allowed four brave American souls to be murdered in Libya. We want answers and we’re seeking justice. It is unfortunate that Grange’s company, Osprey Global Solutions, has surfaced in the committe’s investigations of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. The information on HollyGrange.com is 100% factual. There are multiple credible news outlets that have reported the same information, which are sourced and linked, and the statetments made by Congressman Trey Gowdy, Chairman of the Special Committee on Benghazi, are pulled verbatim from official Congressional record and linked to the government website that houses his documented letter. 

Military servious is honorable and no one, myself included, is questiong anyone’s service to this Country. What’s questionable are the actions of someone who has long since retired from the military and who, as a private citizen, is using high-level military connections to secure government contracts for profit.

Using previous military service as a shield to insulate yourself from criticism for shady business dealings as a private citizen is disgraceful.
