Governor McCrory and Republican legislators said they would do away with “pay-to-play” and “corruption” in Raleigh.
Then a group of lobbyists held a fundraiser in Raleigh. It’s illegal, of course, for lobbyists to contribute to legislators.
But the fundraiser was for a congressional candidate named Phil Berger Jr.
Yes, the son of State Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger Sr.
For the Republicans ruling Raleigh today, that apparently passes the ethics test. No pay-to-play there.
What do you think? And what will  voters say?

    So, if we go back and checked when the democrats were in power in Raleigh we’d find nothing like this happening? And, if we did find it, we’d see you, Gary, posting something on TAP against it? Uh, huh. Right.

    I rarely say: “well, it’s okay because the other side did it”….but, in this case, it IS okay because unless there’s some crime committed…if something illegal was done…it does meet the “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander” standard.

    Democrats whine about so much that is happening today that took place back when they had the power in NC. The whining started with redistricting (that the democrats did for decades and decades in our state) and has continued with anything and everything that the republicans are doing so as to make them stronger politically. And, all of it that happened back when democrats had the power in NC came despite all of the rhetoric they spewed out to we citizens about how they were going to be “fair” and “above board” and “transparent”.

    Give us a break, Gary. All I can say to you is….get used to it and get over it.

    Voters will think that Phil Berger Jr. has switched parties. Most open and ethical Presidency ever. If you like your insurance you can keep it. If you like your Doctor you can keep him. I will close Gitmo. Democrats are so accustomed to lies I don’t think it will make much or any difference. Like I say they may think the Berger Junior has changed parties. It could actually help.
