As y'all may or may not have heard, the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law, Campbell University, has decided to move to Raleigh. I don't really think it's a good idea for many reasons, but regardless, one item about the move jumped out at me when I read this morning's article in the FayOb:
The Associated Press reported late Wednesday that a letter from a real estate agent showed the law school intends to move into a downtown Raleigh building, owned by a company held by former state legislator Art Pope.
Would someone, please (with a minimum amount of "colorful metaphors" and sarcasm), give me the lowdown on Mr. Pope? I've seen the Puppetmaster chart and heard all the rest, but would someone give me the complete background on him and his "connections" that I may share with my law classmates? I'd appreciate it!!
Now, I'm no conspiracy theorist (I leave that to y'all...), but a tiny part of me is worried that my beloved institution may begin to turn into a Liberty U. or some other branch of the Federalist Society. I really hope I'm wrong...
