Free pass for GOP state House member with DWI

From my humble perch, it distresses me that the NC House Democratic caucus missed a great opportunity in 2008 when they did not field a candidate against Representative Phillip Frye in House District 84 (in the mountains).

Rep. Frye was charged with DWI in Dec 2007.

He filed for reelection anyway in early 2008, but no one filed against him.

I realize that this generally GOP mountain district is not in the top tier on the Dem+ list. However, Judge Doug McCullough was tossed from the NC Court of Appeals handily by Cheri Beasley after his encounter with drunk driving.
