Crazy Carl Ford, who brought you the infamous "establish state religion" bill, now plans to file a bill to prevent local school boards from being able to sue county commissions.
N.C. Rep. Carl Ford, R-Rowan, said he and other lawmakers are crafting a statewide bill aimed at cutting school districts’ ability to pursue litigation against the county’s elected officials.
That's right, Carl doesn't like the idea of people exercising their legal rights. Without a last-resort alternative to bring a lawsuit, school boards won't have any influence and county commissions will act with impunity.
Miller, chairman of the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education, said he feels strongly about the repercussions of giving one governmental entity absolute authority while restricting bodies like the school board to raise their concerns, even through lawsuits.
“I think our forefathers had a sound system when they set up checks and balances,” Miller said. “The timing of the whole thing is very interesting. I wouldn’t want to imagine it with what is happening in our current situation.”
Say, maybe that was Carl's idea all along.
