Why voting is so important:
As NC rebuilds: last year #Trump ended policy to consider climate science in the design of federally funded projects, incldg mandatory elev of buildings in flood-prone areas. And FEMA removed climate change and sea-level rise from its strategic planning docs #FlorenceNC #ncpol

The science of science is dying, and being replaced by the rhetoric of industry lobbyists. We can start the healing process by taking back the General Assembly in 2018, and finish it by purging the White House in 2020.
Jennifer Gray, @NCHouseSpeaker's one-time fiancee, was the only person considered for her current position with the Department of Insurance, a position created in the 2017 budget #ncpol https://t.co/3jVjdkL7LA

Although that might be a stock photo and not associated with these allegations, that pretty much sums up Tim Moore's concern over this. He knows our system of ethical oversight is a joke, and not a damn thing will happen to him due to this (or any other) corrupt practice.

Yeah, it's pretty bad:
For almost four weeks state Sen. Joyce Krawiec’s personal Facebook page displayed a racist meme depicting Barack Obama with racially caricatured protruding lips and the text, “Me, me, me… yes, me” — an apparent attempt to portray the former president as a childish narcissist.
If the meme itself is only mildly racist, the personalized text in the post is overtly so. A woman named Joan Fleming shared the post to Krawiec’s page, writing, “This is for Krissi…she’s always like this monkey!!”
Not just some random commenter, she and Krawiec have been friends for years. In some cases, guilt by association is valid. Don't just take my word for it, Chris is spot-on as usual:
The headline is troubling enough but turns out the woman who posted the racist meme identified herself as Krawiec's campaign manager and her campaign has reimbursed the woman for campaign activities this year. The company you keep. #ncga #ncpol https://t.co/8OHZz1cOuh

This also highlights the pernicious nature of alt-right talking points. Be on the lookout for people who constantly mention "Globalism," because it's no longer an economic term, it's straight-up racist nationalism.

Um...you already have a majority, Mother Pence. But we're gonna fix that.

No more hurricane maps! Can't deal with it! Sorry, I had to get that off my chest...

You're an idiot. But also, you're an idiot. DSA did not create that flyer, some jackass like you did, because he knew you'd be stupid enough to believe it.

But apparently you're no old enough to remember it was Ronald Reagan who appointed Holder as a Superior Court Judge, and Clinton who made him a Deputy Attorney General. Move back six spaces and lose a turn.

Both of those pictures make me nauseated.
This new poll showing widespread approval of #NCGOV Cooper's response to Hurricane Florence is politically relevant for the 2018 campaign given it is a prominent issue in many key #NCGA races in which some Dems are trying to align themselves w/ the Governor & his response #NCPOL
— Jonathan Kappler (@jonathankappler) October 8, 2018
That's probably because Cooper is genuinely concerned about storm victims, while Trump made idiotic comments about free yachts.

It's bad enough to brainwash your daughters, but turning the dog into a Republican should be a class 2 felony...

Welp, it's for sure you ain't going to gouge anybody else...

Well, since Steve Troxler is a Republican, he'll probably get what he wants. And when Cooper asks for more money, they'll probably point to this and say, "Sorry, it's already being spent."
On that frustrating note, here's your Onion:
