Now Gov. Cooper confirms that his intention for the $58 million
extortion “voluntary contribution” made in exchange for the approval of permits to allow the Atlantic Coast Pipeline to begin construction will be exclusively his slush fund.
Legislators won’t get to decide how to spend a nearly $58 million fund being set up to mitigate the environmental impacts of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a spokesman for Gov. Roy Cooper said Tuesday night.
Cooper spokesman Ford Porter reached out to WRAL News Tuesday evening after a piece on @NCCapitol (available below) indicated otherwise. Porter took issue with the post’s headline and said the governor is not open to legislative involvement in the fund. (emphasis added)
Moreover, Pricey Harrison (D-Guilford) allowed a truth to slip from her lips about the quid pro quo of this “contribution.”
“I wasn’t involved in the negotiations, but I understand that that was part of the process,” Harrison said. “It wasn’t that they were paying $57 million or whatever it was to get the permit. It was just that that was a condition of getting the permit granted was the access to this fund that would try to undo some of the damage that was created by the pipeline…” (emphasis added)
A condition of getting the permit granted?
This deal reeks of pay to play corruption at the highest level of our state government.
So much for the Democrats protections of the environment.If this was a Republican doing this the Observer and all the states tv stations would be running this 24/7.
There are 2 corrupt parties Larry. What a shock huh? You shamelessly support the corrupt 2 party system.
Brian knows it, but gets paid to write this partisan propaganda.
They might be both corrupt but then there is that third bunch.The ones that that don’t know what they believe.They don’t even know what’s in their underwear.Sound familiar?All they know is they are against white people,business,straight people that know what they are,people that don’t kill their babies and people that are not perverts.
Larry is a sick and confused soul. Most certainly led by the Marketers at NC Civitas who pose as Academics.
I think any other readers can tell who the sick pervert is.The one who doesn’t know his gender but thinks he is an Academic.
Larry, like Pat McCrory, knows more about Gender issues than Endocrinologists.
Larry and Pat didn’t need to study Medicine. They have a Bible and a Mirror.
You don’t have to be an Endocrinologist to know what gender you are.Clueless metal problem is your problem.
I know what gender I am. There are folks who are born with characteristics of both Genders. Endocrinologists know that, and castigated Pat. He ignored it. Academics at both public and private Universities here in North Carolina also chastened Pat. He ignored it.
And…..Pat used a woman molested by her brother, in her home, in Ads designed to scare folks about Public Bathrooms to support his delusions.
And…..HB2 was a Central Government takeover of the Liberty of towns, cities, communities and people in North Carolina on all issues!
Somehow you being for men in public bathrooms with little girls is no surprise.John Hopkins and every other reputable mental expert says a transvestite is a mental problem and nothing else.You should know about mental problems since you are case study for mental problems.
Isn’t Qwed pro quo illegal? Can Cooper be impeached for it?
