What the heck is going on? N&O reported that Governor Jim Hunt gave Justin Burr, a Republican, $1000 in 2013. Any one know what is going on here. Representative Justin Burr is one of the most vicious Teabillies in NC. Surely this must be a mistake, but I looked it up on NC BOE compliance reports my self.
I am also worried about Governor Hunt's consorting as of late with Governor McCrory concerning education, including the Emerging Issues Forum. While Governor Hunt is much concerned about education, as are those among us who are rational about education, which does not include McCrory, I feel that McCrory is using Governor Hunt as cover for the depredations that he and his Teabillies in the legislature have forced on education among other things. Meanwhile, the NCDP is and has been struggling for money to sustain operations. I guess one might call out, like the boy in Shane, "Jim, Jim, come back Jim".
Surely there is some wonderful explanation, but right now I cannot find it.
