How long will North Carolina citizens accept the kind of corruption and sleaze that has plagued our state now for years? This is what happens when one party – any party – is in power for too long.
The Governor’s truthless two-step (Easley is way overdue for this. Now he’s a lame duck, the media get indignant?)
The Basnight, Black, Tippett triumvirate has been shuffling around transportation tax dollars for boondoggles and ol’ boys for years. Randy Parton? Tip. Of. Iceberg.
Jim Black. Nuff Said.
Thomas Wright. (With the irony that Easley calls the special session for his ouster, while the shredded documents still languish in the bin behind the Governor’s mansion.)
North Carolina is starting to make Louisiana look like the land of sunshine. It’s time our media stopped giving this power a pass — and start speaking truth to it. Where to look next? The highest echelon of the General Assembly is a good place to start. But look out, the rot likely goes all the way down.
