Cooper torpedoes RNC in Charlotte. Will he do same to NCGOP in Greenville?

Brother, can ya spare, oh —– $50,000 ?????

  There are a few pretty interesting entries on the North Carolina Republican Party’s FEC financial disclosure report.  Look under the category of loans:     You have Dallas Woodhouse and FIVE Cabarrus County residents “loaning” the NCGOP a combined total of  $50,000 on the…

This weekend’s NCGOP convention is shaping up to make the WWE (or any episode of Maury) look like a Wednesday night prayer meeting in comparison. NC $pin:  Remember the big fuss about the fees being charged delegates attending the affair?  It played a huge part…

Is the NCGOP convention in violation of the 24th amendment to the US Constitution?

It’s an interesting question being asked by more than one of our loyal readers. As you may know, the current hubbub over the state party chairman focuses, partly, on a disagreement about a $90 fee being charged for attending the part of the convention where…

Even MORE ncgop convention Monkey Business?

Email is a wonderful thing.  Especially in the world of politics, where lies and double-talk are, unfortunately, the norm instead of the exception. Anyway, I digress.  The state GOP’s resolutions committee was hard at work last night trying to meet a deadline for the upcoming…
