Pope to Face the State Board of Election

Anglico first predicted it and now Bob Geary is reporting that it is happening: Art Pope will be hauled before the State Board of Elections for expeditures by his corporations.


Way to go Anglico

Another scoop here on BlueNC.

This is great news for democracy!

I've been biting my nails waiting for their decision and am thrilled to see this getting official public scrutiny. It's a good time to be in the lawyerin' business, no doubt, with both sides represented by high powered attorneys.

Regardless of how the SBOE hearing goes, don't expect this to end anytime soon. The Puppetmaster is used to buying what he wants and he'll find another way to skirt the letter of the law and subvert the will of the people.

...and we'll all sleep better at night

knowing you're on the job.

OK...a little over the top...but you know what I mean!

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

SD = Nutcase

Bob Geary (of the Independent) is the guy to watch. He finds out about stuff I only dream of knowing about. Thank heavens he's one of the good guys.

I hope Pope has a good attorney

who charges fees like he is a GREAT attorney. And I hope this stretches out over a series of days or weeks while the Republicans pummel each other. What a great spectator sport.

Well, well, well

Maybe SocratesGOP will get a chance to put some of those theories that she's been pushing around here in front of the Board.

Believe me, I am looking

Believe me, I am looking forward to the results of the hearing as much as any of you guys.

Who Are You?

I am guessing John Hood or even Art Pope himself. No no no, he would just hire someone to troll the comments for him.

Also, not to be grammar nazi, but...

If you arrogant enough to claim to be socrates, you might consider using "watching" instead of "looking" in your title. Looking: To face in a specified direction; watching: To look or observe attentively or carefully; be closely observant (definitions via dictionary.com).

Curious but not in anguish

SocratesGOP sure has a thing for Art Pope over at NCRumours.

There's Art Pope's Philantropy, Art Pope's Mission and Art Pope's support for the Republican party.

You speculate as to what might happen when “one man” has so much power. As noted before, I disagree with your “one man” premise to begin with. The better question is, whether the Republican Party and conservative cause are better off or worse off because of Art Pope’s active participation and his family’s support over the last twenty years, and this past three years? I think the answer is clearly yes, both as to the Democrats in the General Election and Richard Morgan and his Rinos in the primaries.
