#ncpol #ncgop: Ma Cotten, at it AGAIN.

She led the dirty tricks campaign that did in duly-elected NCGOP chairman Hasan Harnett.  Now, Joyce “Ma” Cotten is trying to orchestrate a GOPe endorsement in a judicial race featuring TWO Republican candidates.

Judicial races are still non-partisan.  The party affiliation of candidates does not appear on the ballot.  But knowing a candidate’s affiliation can usually tell you a lot about their take on the issues and the role of government.  

Here she is: Snip20160716_1

First of all, she’s butchered Ms. WOOD’s name. 

Second of all, does anyone else find it troubling that the NCGOPe is openly making endorsements in a contest featuring TWO registered Republicans?   I could see this being justifiable if, for instance, Ms. Wood had some kind of horrible scandal associated with her or was clearly some leftist stalking horse.  But NO ONE has produced any evidence of the sort. 

Just from looking at her Facebook site, Ms. Wood looks like quite the Tea Partier — quite the constitutional conservative.  Judging from Ma Cotten’s history, I DOUBT this meeting is about boosting the Wood campaign.
