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.


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.
