Bent Supreme Court helps NC GOP conceal evidence

Begging the obvious question, what are you trying to hide?

The North Carolina Supreme Court sided Friday with legislative leaders who withheld emails and other documents between them and state-funded private attorneys about redistricting maps approved in 2011, ruling that those documents can be confidential. Rep. David Lewis, R-Harnett, who was chairman of the House Redistricting Committee when the maps were drawn, praised the ruling Friday. "It's very important for individuals to have the common-law right afforded to them of being able to have confidential communications with their attorneys," he said.

Pay attention, Einstein: as a taxpayer, I paid those attorneys, making me the client, and I want to see those damn e-mails. By withholding those e-mails from me and my fellow taxpayers, you're not only concealing your apparently questionable behavior, you're also violating our attorney-client privileges.

Pope's plan

Reaches full folly. Owns the governor. Owns the General Assembly. Owns the Supreme Court. Owns the whole fucking government.

No one in elected office will cross the miserable son of a bitch. Especially Newby.

Newby on the Run!

Little did we know that the reality of that commercial would become Art Pope in the role of chasing Paul Newby!
