My NC GOP sociopath of the week is none other than Cabarrus County's own Fletcher Hartsell. Mr. K-12 Inc. himself.
If acting as a paid lobbyist for K-12 Inc. while actively serving in the NC Senate wasn't enough of a conflict of interest, apparently Fletcher and his equally slimy brother Thomas enjoy tag teaming and fleecing the elderly in their spare time.
A recent News and Observer article outlined a bit of a sticky wicket Fletcher has found himself in. It's one thing to use $100,000 in campaign contributions to pay off your personal credit cards, but it's absolutely reprehensible to use the multi-million dollar estate of elderly Alzheimer victims as your personal feeding trough.
This is why Hartsell gets my nod for NC GOP sociopath of the week.
