Quite nasty, and our friend Blair follows the money behind it:
Shortly following @NCHouseSpeaker's sale to Mountaire, its CEO dropped:
- $500k to @PatMcCroryNC's PAC
- $100k to the NCGOP
- $25k to @NCHouseGOP
And just before McCrory left office, he awarded a $1.5M state grant to clean Mountaire's water.https://t.co/CdjqCw6QoV #ncpol

Absolute power, yada yada. Moore walked away from that deal with $465,000 profit, and the f**king taxpayers footed the bill. And the water is still nasty, which makes Evil Steve want to break something...
In an unprecedented assault on democracy(!), the Democrats embraced this attack on a party-line vote, striking down the amendments, and tyrannizing the very people they claim to be protecting. #ncpol (7/8)

Lol, J Dan has his tighty whities in a bunch over this, but it's not the amendments, or even the Court's ruling, that has him all a-Twitter, it's the fact that the gerrymandering "fix" bumped him into a slightly more difficult race, against Scott Huffman, who ain't pullin' no punches. Instead of riding in the wagon back to DC, he's having to run beside it. Wearing the wrong type of shoes. And then there's this...

In other words, STFU about a so-called assault on democracy, you tried to do it for real.

Yeah, go ahead and do it, despite the Folwell taint. I got like $75 a couple years ago. And I still don't know why, but Money and Freedom and a few other erroneously capitalized words.
On that lucrative note, here's your Onion:

Well, if all you have is American cheese, life is simply not worth living...
Oh my god that is funny...
