I have a hard time finding the story in the News & Observer’s article, “Two businessmen invested big in schools race”. It sounds like another tired “money buys election” story. I guess the N&O couldn’t bring itself to comment on three of the four school board races last fall where the losers actually outspent the winners. In the fourth –which involved a runoff election — the winner John Tedesco outspent his two opponents, Horace Tart and Cathy Truitt by a whopping $571. Money buys election? Hardly. I guess the facts got in the way of a good story.
