Fetzer "apologizes" for campaign mailer

Article by the Winston-Salem Journal: http://www2.journalnow.com/news/2010/oct/21/state-gop-chairman-apologizes-flier-ar-473653/

The state Republican chairman has apologized to State Rep. Hugh Holliman, D-Davidson, for a flier that suggested he wanted convicted death-row murderers to be released from prison. The flier was sent out in preparation for Election Day on Nov. 2.

Holliman's 16-year-old daughter was raped and murdered in 1985, and Holliman witnessed the execution of his daughter’s killer. He has repeatedly said he supports the death penalty.

“I called and told Mr. Holliman that I wanted to apologize if the mailer caused him any personal anguish or discomfort,” said Tom Fetzer, N.C. GOP chairman. “We did not know about the tragic death of his daughter. If we had known, we would not have sent that mailer out in his district.”

Holliman, who is the House Majority Leader and is up for his sixth term, accepted Fetzer’s apology Wednesday night but asked for a retraction.

NC GOP waste donor money

[Although the majority of readers on this site are not Republicans, they should advise their Republican friends (if any) about their wasteful spending.]

Stop giving to the NC Republican Party. They are wasting your money.

Below is a list of WASTEFUL expenditures by the NC Republican Party derived from their 2Q finance report:

Travel for Gov. Barbour Fundraiser: $3,555.00
Transportation for Gov. Barbour: $900.00
Gov. Barbour Reception: $1,600.00
Photos with Haley Barbour: $1,034.40
Band for State Convention: $2,000.00
Van Rental for State Convention: $310.81
Parliamentarian for State Convention: $250.00
Communications Consulting: $4,000.00 [NCGOP has a Communications Director, what is he doing?]

GRAND TOTAL: $13,650.21

I hope Gov. Barbour had a blast with the $7,089.40 that they spent on him.
