CHAPEL HILL -- The News and Observer today called out Deputy Assistant Governor McCrory for his fancy $5000-a-person fundraiser in Greensboro, suggesting that this sort of behavior is somehow surprising.
"Duke Energy paid Pat McCrory to run for governor for almost ten years. After that, Moore and Van Allen paid him to run for two years," says James Protzman, the Chapel Hill Democrat who has filed to run against McCrory in 2016. "And now that McCrory can't get away with having another fake job on the side, he's neck deep in a pool of special interest money from people who expect paybacks."
"The only thing surprising about McCrory's big dollar fundraiser is the fact that anyone is surprised."
