For some reason, the Charlotte Observer decided to run an old piece from Chris Fitzsimon — one that we debunked more than a month ago! In it, he argues that the General Assembly and Governor haven’t been raiding the Highway Trust Fund. And he’s either lying or ignorant of the truth. I think the former, because surely he read our post.
But also: doesn’t the McClatchy want first rights? And wouldn’t they like their writers not to obscure the truth? (If the Observer wants old crap, I’ve got a few pieces they can run.)
