Poll: McCrory Only Leads Cooper By 2

The Left in North Carolina is unimpressed. The Independents aren’t really digging him either. The Right? Well, this governor is bleeding supporters — especially over Common Core.  Can’t say that the legislature is fond of him at the moment either – the song and dance about the coal ash commission being unconstitutional comes to mind.

Will Governor McCrory be a one hit wonder?

Moral Monday Arrestee Cases Dismissed And Their Leader Tells A Whopper

Those arrested at Moral Monday protests have had their cases dismissed. This leaves taxpayer on the hook for all the related costs. Yay… civil disobedience…. or something.

Meanwhile, the press release by the NC NAACP, the leader of Moral Monday tells a whopper – emphasis is mine:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

  Wake County D.A. Dismisses Moral Monday Protester Charges

A Statement from the North Carolina NAACP

RALEIGH, NC – This morning, the Interim Wake County District Attorney dismissed charges against many of the Moral Monday protesters. The dismissals represent a victory for the “Rule of Law” in North Carolina and uphold the rights of citizens to protest and instruct their representatives in the North Carolina General Assembly, the People’s House. The North Carolina NAACP released this statement: 

“We never went in to be arrested,” said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, president of the North Carolina NAACP. “We went in to challenge what we believed then, and believe now, are constitutionally inconsistent, morally indefensible and economically insane extremist policies. The regressive agenda of Speaker Thom Tillis, Senator Phil Berger, and Governor Pat McCrory is hurting the poor, the sick, working people, public education, the environment, the principle of equal protection, and voting rights. 

Say what?!
The whole POINT was to get arrested. These people VOLUNTEERED to be arrested. They even held meetings prior to the protests for their volunteers to get their arm bands and information about what to do when they landed in the Raleigh jail.
