In case you haven't been paying attention, women are slowly (but surely) losing this war. If you're a state (or Federal) candidate and women's reproductive freedom is not in your top five platform issues, you need to do some re-arranging. Pronto.
Progressivism claims to be about advocating for those in povery facing income inequality yet every #progressive politician is wealthy living in gated communities well away from those in #poverty.#ncpol #ncgov #ncga #MAGA #tcot

Of the 50 wealthiest members of Congress (from both houses) 18 are Democrats and 32 are Republicans. In other words, STFU Aamin, you're out of your element.

What a bummer. I really enjoyed his razor-sharp wit.
@tarhellwig Why in the HELL is a FIRED employee allowed to continue to work and sabotage our party? @NCGOP #NCPOL NO ONE allows an employee they FIRED to work out a notice. Pay him off, but get him OUT of our building and all our records. #Clusterfuxk #Haveyoulostyourmind

Does anybody know who he's talking about? I don't really care, per se, but Evil Steve is very curious and he's driving me insane...
Thomas Farr lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee about his involvement in Jesse Helm's 1990 postcard campaign in which black voters were sent mailers warning them that they could be prosecuted for voter fraud if they went to the pollshttps://t.co/ECRgCkCvVy#ncpol https://t.co/sGHPI6rbJC

Don't expect John Hood to bat an eye, such considerations don't even register on his radar.

Right, because that's what the 9th District needs, somebody else abusing election laws. Sheesh.

Lol! Leave it to JLF to try to polish that resume for him. Wouldn't be surprised to see Dallas join the Puppet Show in some form or another.
Now with quotes from acting NC GOP chair Aubrey Woodard and Robin Hayes.
Hayes says he's "not sure" of his official title, but has NO plans to completely step aside until after the state convention.#ncpol #ncgahttps://t.co/LIcNHOpNej

Wait, I thought Hayes was the one indicted. You're keeping him around, but cutting Dallas loose? What a clusterfuck...
While previously at DOJ, Barr did a summary of an OLC memo & “omitted some of the most consequential & incendiary conclusions from the actual opinion. & there was evidently no justifiable reason for having withheld those parts from Congress or the public.” https://t.co/1WfcOXw8NT

And now we know why Trump appointed him. Of course it won't matter to Republicans, because they've sold their souls for a tax cut. But we know.
Wake County school board member will run for NC Senate seat. Christine Kushner, who's been on @WCPSS school board since 2011, will seek Democratic nomination for District 18 seat now held by GOP Senator John Alexander. #nced #ncpol #wakepol @Christine4Wake https://t.co/pEwUwIrQ8g

Whoever emerges out of that snarling pack will have tons of money thrown at him/her, so don't let this keep you from donating to Dan.
Story updated to include @WilsonSchoolsNC as being at least the 11 NC school district to cancel classes on May 1 due to the teachers rally in Raleigh. Statewide, more than 500,000 students, or 33% of public school students, now have day off. #nced #ncpol https://t.co/YIk0iAYIjj

Wow. This rally might be the biggest one so far...
The NCGA has been full of racist, mouth-breathing, homophobes ever since the #GOP took over, they’ve tried to pack the court six ways from Sunday, and you’re complaining Cooper isn’t adding folks you deem nonpartisan? Elections have consequences #ncpol

Again, don't waste your breath on Andrew Dunn, he's lost what little cred he had in the realm of journalism. Now he's just a lobbyist for bad government.
On that nauseating note, here's your Onion:
