#ncga: “Let Jimmy try it.”

Remember the old,Life cereal commercials  where the kids get ol’ Mikey to be the first to try the strange new cereal?  I’ve come to believe that Jimmy Dixon is the Mikey for the House leadership. The N&O busted Dixon for obtaining an earmark of $830,000…

#ncga: Cooper VETOES Jimmy Dixon. (Will Speaker Timmy move to override?)

Our BIGGEST FAN — state Rep. Jimmy Dixon (R-Duplin) — got his feelings hurt by the governor of our fair state this week.  Dixon conspired not too long ago with Speaker Tim Moore to ram through legislation protecting huge corporate hog farms from litigation by those…
