Fire bomb in Hillsborough

The GOP headquarters in Orange county was fire bombed today. Accusations are flying, with Donald Trump already blaming Hillary Clinton.

For he record, I don't know of a single Democrat who would do something like this. Not today, not ever. On the other hand, we have a whole party that has been taken over by militant extremists. You tell me who's the more likely perpetrator.

I'm glad no one was hurt in this incident, and I hope law enforcement will get to the bottom of it quickly.

Pat McCrory is already trying to capitalize on the bad news, pretending to be a leader who cares. It's the same bait and switch he's using to pretend like he cares about North Carolina flooding. He should've gotten a good poll bounce from the latter, but he's got too many years of too many screwups to dig out from. Poor guy. Can't help himself when it comes to running towards the cameras.

Stay tuned.



Dems raise $13,000 to rebuild firebombed offices

From the Huffington Post (and several other sites):

The campaign was not an official effort by the Democratic Party, Jeff Jarvis, professor and director of the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism, wrote on the GoFundMe page.

“It is the effort of a half-dozen Democrats (of which I am one). This is a moment for graciousness, not fractiousness,” Jarvis wrote.

Donations quickly poured in and the campaign’s $10,000 goal was surpassed within a couple hours, Weinberger said. In total, organizers raised $13,167 from 552 donations before closing the fund.

Some donors added a message with their gift, saying that political violence was simply unacceptable.

Absentee ballots in firebombed offices?

FoxNews is reporting that completed absentee ballots were destroyed in the firebomb attack on GOP offices. If true, the fact that the GOP offices were holding them would be a violation of NC's election laws.

I have my doubts

The dude interviewed on the premises mentioned they had rescued(?) a bunch of sample ballots, in which they tell their idiot followers who to vote for. But he didn't say anything about absentee ballots, and since he's not the sharpest tool in the shed, I doubt he would have known it was wrong for them to hold onto them.

It's probably the dumbass headline writers at Fox News getting their wires crossed, an hourly phenomena.
