The Tarheel Taliban are in rare form on many fronts, not least of which is their never-ending crusade to control women. Bills designed to impose further restrictions on abortion are flying fast and furious in the General Assembly. All of which promise a serious showdown with Deputy Assistant Governor Pat McCrory.
As you may remember, McCrory took a clear and unequivocal position on abortion back when he was a candidate. Here's a word-for-word transcription from his debate with Dalton, in which Laura Leslie was one of the moderators.
Of course, McCrory took clear positions on other issues, and has felt completely free to ignore his own pledges. My prediction? McCrory will not actually sign any bills that further restrict abortion, but neither will he veto them. As a result, all of the bills will become law anyway, without any action on his part. Thus he will be keeping his word in a literal sense, while absolutely scamming North Carolina voters in every other sense.
Mark my words.
