UPDATE: While the blogging goes on, it seems some of the more inflammatory posts are disappearing. Usually when you think you're untouchable, that's when you're not.


In this week's edition of the Independent, Billy Ball pulls back the curtain on Jim Womack, a sitting Lee County commissioner from Sanford who chairs the North Carolina Mining and Energy (Fracking) Commission.

Womack founded and for the past two-plus years has operated a vicious, spiteful, and above all unethical anonymous blog in Lee County. He and the other authors use the names of American Founding Fathers as cover. Ball calls it "the worst kept secret in Lee County."
