Roy? Ray? Whatever.

People seem to have a hard time remembering Governor Cooper’s first name and sometimes his last name too.

Excerpt from N&O:

No, Roy Moore isn’t North Carolina’s governor, but it is NC Beer Month

In the rush to thank North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper for recognizing April as NC Beer Month, the state’s main craft beer group accidentally mentioned a different — and controversial — politician as the governor.

The subject line of an email from the NC Craft Brewers Guild thanked “Governor Roy Moore” for recognizing the state’s beer industry. It was correct in the enclosed press release, both in the headline and throughout the release.

Moore, a Republican, is the former US Senate candidate from Alabama who was accused by multiple women of pursuing sexual relationships with them when they were teens and he was in his 30s. Moore denied the accusations.

People took to social media Friday morning to joke about the mistake. Soon after, Andrew Lemley, who became president of the Craft Brewers Guild in November, sent out another email clarifying that “of course” he meant to say Cooper.

Roy, Ray… What Difference Does It Make?
