The NC legislature’s Senate race in District 23 offers two women candidates this election cycle, challenger Mary Lopez-Carter (R) and the woman currently holding the seat, Valerie Foushee (D). There will be two parts to the look at this race. In this installment, we’ll look at Valerie Foushee.
About Valerie Foushee
Foushee was appointed to the NC General Assembly to replace Senator Ellie Kinnaird when she resigned in 2013. Foushee left her House seat (District 50) to do so. That move put liberal Graig Meyer into Foushee’s vacant House seat. Foushee was a freshman Representative when she was appointed to the Senate.

1998: Hagan sought to distance herself from Clinton; asked media to ‘do something’ about this picture. #ncsen pic.twitter.com/iSlajGs3i0

In 1998, Hagan wanted little to do with being in a photo with a portrait of President Clinton and was worried it would send a message to voters that she condoned his affair. She pressured local media to ‘do something’ about the photo running with their story.
Now she’s ready to link arms with the same man in order to save her seat.
What kind of message is that sending, Senator Hagan? Flip. Flop. Continue reading
More fun at the Cabarrus County Commissioners latest meeting. Morris, Honeycutt and Cabarrus Jobs Now in the news again.
From Jason Oesterreich’s blog:
Time and time again, Commissioner Morris and Cabarrus Jobs Now have been caught lying and deceiving our voters (Commissioner Morris and soon-to-be-commissioner Diane Honeycutt co-founded Cabarrus Jobs Now together as a Political Action Committee).
When evil uses lies and deceit to take power from the innocent and unknowing, we must stand against it.
This morning, the Independent Tribune published an article stating that Commissioner Morris’s lies resulted in two library employees being suspended for 3 days each. Also, in response to such behavior, the county manager had to send out a memorandum to county volunteers and the public stating, “First and foremost I want to apologize for any false, inaccurate, or misrepresentation of factual information that may have been distributed to you from our library staff.” Commissioner Morris used the library staff and our county volunteers to spread lies. http://www.independenttribune.com/news/morris-oesterreich-square-off-over-library-woes/article_5b9a77d8-4714-11e4-943e-001a4bcf6878.html
There’s quite a bit more and video at the link.
Don’t bother going to the Cabarrus Jobs Now site, as of this morning it’s “Down until further notice.” Someone page Diane Honeycutt to get that fixed:

I’ve gotten in the habit of checking out the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grant site on a regular basis.
I recently pulled up all the 2014 ‘college ready’ grants. The amount of money being doled out for 116 grants was over $87 million. This $87 million spans only 2014 through 9/28/14.
The second largest grant was to the CCSSO for over $6 million to support the implementation of their ‘strategic plan':
