Seven more Moral Monday protesters has been acquitted. The costly and stupid parade continues along with more theatrics. Look at this stunt below, attempting to call Tillis and Berger as witnesses.
RALEIGH — An attorney representing protesters arrested at the N.C. Legislative Building in June, attempted to call the leaders of both General Assembly chambers on Wednesday as witnesses in the trial of seven people.
John McWilliam, a Raleigh attorney representing some of the demonstrators arrested June 12, said he issued subpoenas for N.C. House Speaker Thom Tillis and Senate President Phil Berger to find out more about the enforcement of the building rules his clients had been accused of violating.
It’s a McClatchy article, so of course there is no mention whatsoever that the people arrested went to the legislature building fully intending to be arrested and that they volunteered to do so. Now taxpayers are on the hook for the police, overtime and court time. That’s Money Monday for you — bilking the taxpayer to fund their BlueprintNC gripe parade.
