According to the Charlotte Observer, the much ballyhooed Teapot Museum in Sparta is not going to be built as envisioned. Instead of 16,000 square feet of majestic teapots for everyone to view, the museum is going to be smaller, and focus on items other than teapots.
So, since Jim Black violated House Rules to get the museum the $400,000 and is now a convicted felon, and since the project is no longer what we (the public) were told it was going to be…
(And I’m not going to try to get into the whole story of Jim Harrell’s (D-Surry) donor who also gave money to Black who Meredith Norris promised a job as Teapot Museum Director in exchange for the contributions — Google it if you like, it’s a great little scandal).
Basically what I’m asking is, can we have our money back?
Apparently we need that $400,000 to make sure families making $80,000 year can have government-run health care for their kids.
