A piece by mainstream media servant Gary Robertson is running all across North Carolina.
In it, you'll read names of former Democratic office holders that were in trouble with the law.
What won't you find? One - just one - name of a "troubled" GOP politician. Of course they exist, they just don't fit dear ol' Gary's story of woe for Dems.
Robertson reaches all the way back to 2003 to name former Ag Commissioner Phipps as a troubled Dem. Does he reach back as far for troubled GOPers? Ha!
Hey Robertson, it's 2010. Phipps was released in 2007. Got any new news to report? Been able to do any research in the past 3 years?
Republican bad boys include former GOP state senator John Carrington (why isn't he mentioned more with the LEA story)? He plead guilty to illegally sending technology to RED CHINA for chrissakes. It happened in 2005 -- two years after the Phipps story.
Former GOP state Rep. David Almond's scandalous episode has been linked to here profusely and forgotten by the scandal mongers in the mainstream media.
And of course former GOP Rep. Cary Allred who resigned in disgrace last year (that's 2009), just doesn't rate for Robertson's storyline.
It's a damn shame when facts and linear time get in the way of your story isn't it, Gary?
Looking forward to the follow-up on GOP scandals. Do me proud and do some research next time. There's plenty GOP scandals to report on if you care to.
You can even reach back a few years if you feel like it - just like you did for the Dems.
