Mental Health CEO Defends His Salary at Legislature.

Take a look at this great story by Rosemary Hoban. Another fine example of Republicans plundering public funds.

In North Carolina, liberals have given the Evil Empire a lot of grief for contesting Cooper's election. But on the federal level, we're mounting our own presidential challenges in six states based on evidence of criminal activities, irregularities, and any other kind of screw-ups. There will be complaints filed like crazy.
