#ncgov: The NY Committee for Roy Cooper ???

Bob Orr, fresh off of being dissed by Robin Hayes, is making some headway toward redeeming himself in my eyes: robert-orr

New York’s advertising campaigns promoting the state’s economic-development opportunities have faced criticism for their high costs and meager returns in job creation. Now they have encountered another challenge.

A former North Carolina Supreme Court judge has filed complaints with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel and a New York state ethics panel alleging that taxpayer-funded ads Gov.Andrew Cuomo’s administration has run in North Carolina violated the Hatch Act by interfering with the gubernatorial and legislative races in that state.

The commercials, which reference the state’s so-called transgender bathroom law, among policies by other states, “mention North Carolina and its leadership in a transparent attempt to criticize, interfere and affect the impending North Carolina elections,” according to the federal complaint filed by the retired judge, Robert F. Orr.

The Republican governor of North Carolina, Pat McCrory, is up for re-election this year, as is the state’s legislature. The Hatch Act prohibits federal, state and local employees from using their official authority to interfere with or influence the outcome of an election or nomination for office.[…]

THIS is what the GOP has been missing for years when knocking heads with the leftist troglodyte hordes.  Aggressiveness.  Push-back.

Orr didn’t stop there: NEWS_shitin_jennamackey

[…] Mr. Orr, who said in an interview that he isn’t affiliated with the North Carolina governor’s administration or campaign but has done some legal work for the state, has filed a similar complaint with New York’s Joint Commission on Public Ethics.

The ads, which the complaints say began running in North Carolina in late June, promote New York’s business climate as “where the true leaders are” and “where we understand the value of diversity.” The ads are no longer airing, according to Mr. Cuomo’s office.

When the narrator says “as some in America seem to be forgetting exactly what freedom means,” the screen flashes with headlines critical of other states’ policies on issues related to transgender people, refugees and gays.

One of the headlines reads: “North Carolina Bans Local Anti-Discrimination Policies,” a reference to a law signed in March that bars transgender people from using bathrooms and other facilities that don’t correspond to the gender on their birth certificates.

Subsequent to that law, Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, issued an executive order that prohibits nonessential state-funded travel to North Carolina, saying the bathroom policy is discriminatory.2400

The federal complaint criticizes the ads as going “beyond appropriate economic-development recruitment,” saying: “By using public funds to promote New York as supporting certain policies and implicitly criticizing contrary political decisions made in North Carolina, an ethical imitation has been breached.”

The complaint specifically identifies Mr. Cuomo as having violated the Hatch Act, along with several employees of Empire State Development, New York’s economic-development agency.[…]

After months and months of outright LYING by the North Carolina driveby media, the national drivebys, and their Democrat comrades about HB2, it’s about time that they saw some pushback.  If they actually reported the truth about the contents of the law, the business community would realize that it has ZERO effect on them.  The public would realize that it simply keeps things as they are — boys and girls restrooms, men’s and women’s locker rooms. 

I remember one of the more effective efforts by Senator Helms’s campaign in the 1984 general election fight with Jim Hunt.  The Helms campaign highlighted a disclaimer on an anti-Helms advertisement which said “Paid for by the New York Committee  for Jim Hunt.”

Will this episode make Roy Cooper feel like it’s 1984 all over again?

  1. Interesting. It looks like Bob Orr is doing more for the GOP cause than his tormenter at the National Convention, Robin Hayes.

    Go, Bob!

  2. A very good article on HB2, how it relates to the Governor’s race, and way the Trump people sabotaged NC by putting one of the Gaystapo thugs on stage at the GOP National Convention was posted on another side and I repost it below from the Beaufort Observer.

    Good article on homo Thiel and GOP convention
    July 25, 2016 | 05:39 PM

    The conservative website, The Resurgent, has a good article about the speech by this homosexual activist Thiel at the GOP National Convention. When you read it, you have to ask why Trump and Priebus let him speak? Why did the NC delegation not boo him?

    ”PayPal, Toilets, and Hypocrisy at the RNC
    By Rebecca Hagelin | July 25, 2016, 03:33pm

    When PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel took the stage at the RNC last week, one might have expected him to speak only about the great innovative spirit that is allowed to blossom into new products, services and creations when government steps out of the way.

    Instead, this self-proclaimed homosexual activist chose to flush his credibility down the toilet with a “throw away” line that was deliberately spoken in order to demean the concerns of moms and dads everywhere:

    “When I was a kid, the great debate was about how to defeat the Soviet Union. And we won,” he recalled. “Now we are told that the great debate is about who gets to use which bathroom. This is a distraction from our real problems. Who cares?”

    Who cares about the bathroom debate? You do, Mr. Thiel. And that stench America smells is your hypocrisy.

    What Mr. Thiel did not tell the faithful gathered in Cleveland is that he is involved in targeting a Republican governor in North Carolina who is up for reelection this fall. What he did not reveal at the RNC and to the delegates from North Carolina is that his company, PayPal, is boycotting their state. Why? It’s all about the bathroom debate. You know, the one Mr. Thiel doesn’t care about.

    The very brave and principled Governor Pat McCrory dared to protect the rights of business owners in Charlotte who were being forced “” FORCED “” by their local politicians to allow men in ladies’ bathrooms; boys into girls’ restrooms. As governor, he also boldly declared that public schools would continue to keep boys out of the girls bathrooms and showers “” like we have always done in America.

    That’s when Mr. Thiel and his company, PayPal, showed that they very much care about the bathroom debate: as part of a terrorizing effort to punish the people of North Carolina, PayPal announced they have cancelled their plans to build a global operations center in the state. The 400 jobs the center would create are being moved out of North Carolina as part of a mass effort to unseat Governor McCrory, financially punishing the people of North Carolina in the process. While simultaneously punishing US citizens for supposedly “discriminatory” policies, PayPal is just fine continuing to operate offices in countries like Saudi Arabia where the law allows homosexuals to be stoned to death. Let me clear: PayPal refuses do business in a state where boys are prohibited from using girls’ locker rooms, but has no problem making big bucks in Muslim countries that murder people for their sexuality. And the RNC featured the man behind this vile hatred. Let that soak in a while.

    Republican Governor McCrory has a big target on his back, with millions of dollars are pouring into the state to help defeat him this fall; and Mr Thiel is aiming his political guns squarely on the bullseye. Yet, this political assassin of a Republican governor took a prime time speaking slot at the Republican National Convention, all the while pretending like he doesn’t care about the very fight he is leading. Do you smell the stench?”
