Jim Black Hits the Fan

What will we see in statewide politics this year? Looks like a healthy dose of Jim Black bashing. It started here:

ASHEVILLE — Republicans on Monday showed support for party candidates and pledged to root out corruption in state politics.

Nearly 100 people attended the Lincoln-Reagan Day reception and dinner at Asheville’s Crest Center, the biggest annual fundraising event for the Buncombe County Republican Party.

Past dinners have raised $7,000 to $10,000. George Keller, chairman of the Buncome County Republican Party, said he could not say how much the event raised Monday.

So, the corruption issue that should help us take out a couple of GOP congressmen is being used to eliminate the Democratic majority in the State Legislature. Thank you Jim Black (and complicit Democrats.


This is just what I've been worrying about

and why Jim Black should step down from his leadership position.

I'm kind of a moron about this

but what do you mean here? Are you talking about campaign finance records of NC Republican legislators?

You're not a Moron...

and Yup, campaign finance....but sometimes you have to dig a little deeper, especially when looking into PAC money received. You also want to look into expenses. Was that PR company that the candidate paid $10k to, run by his 18 year old daughter....that sort of thing.

I usually start with data that's already been compiled and look to see if there are any red flags. It can be a lot of fun....for a nerd like me. The problem is finding the time.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
