NC Gov McCrory to Campaign for Ken Cuccinelli for VA Gov

I guess Cuccinelli, who appears to be down by between 10-17 points to Democrat Terry McAuliffe, figures nothing can hurt him now….

I just hope someone captures some video and pictures to use when McCrory runs for re-election and tries to claim to be a “moderate” Republican again.  Cuccinelli is the darling of the Tea Party and the Religious Wrong…

From WRAL Raleigh:

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory will campaign for fellow Republican and Virginia gubernatorial hopeful Ken Cuccinelli on Thursday.

The get out the vote rally, advertised by the Cuccinelli campaign, will take place in Roanoke, Va., at noon.

North Carolina DHHS settlement May Violate State Constitution

I’m watching the North Carolina news closely this afternoon as rumor has it McCrory is going to cut Aldona Wos loose this afternoon.  This is another example of why….

But the main reason is the arrogant witch is so blatantly throwing public money at McCrory campaign workers and contacts and making the Big Mac look bad.

She’s the only person in his administration with worse PR and Management skills than his…..

This GOPers always say they are going to bring efficiency to government- and they do….They efficiently transfer public funds to their friends.

Oh, and they are so proud of calling this a “Right to Work” state where people are employed “at will.”  Then why the concern at heading off appeals?  More likely trying to head off more bad press…..

From WRAL:

 

Department of Health and Human Services officials may have violated the North Carolina Constitution when they cut a $37,000 check to an outgoing worker on the job for only a month, personnel experts say.

Raleigh attorney Michael Byrne, who regularly represents state employees challenging their terminations, says the settlement appears to violate a section of the state constitution that explicitly prohibits payments to state workers for anything other than “public services.”

All told, DHHS paid Chief of Staff Thomas Adams $51,246 for a little more than four weeks of work. Aside from his regular salary, Adams took home $37,227 as part of a “settlement agreement” about four months after he left.

That settlement, signed by DHHS Secretary Aldona Wos and approved by State Budget Director Art Pope on July 30, said DHHS would pay the sum “in exchange for Mr. Adams’ agreement to waive all appeal rights and release the Department and its officials and employees from any liability or responsibility.”

NC Governor Spending $230,000 on Mansion Bathrooms

Amazing…

I’m basically speechless at the arrogance, stupidity and lies of the McCrory administration and the Republican leaders in Raleigh, but this is really ridiculous.

From the Raleigh News and Observer:

Gov. Pat McCrory plans to spend up to $230,000 in taxpayer funds remodeling bathrooms in his private living quarters at North Carolina’s Executive Mansion even as he demands belt-tightening for public schools and social programs.

Planned upgrades include new marble, tubs and fixtures for six bathrooms on the upper floors of the Victorian-era home in Raleigh. The changes were included in a long list detailing $90 million in repairs and renovations to government buildings sent to legislative leaders last week by state budget director Art Pope. The $90 million was included in the state budget for the current fiscal year.
