Goodbye Charles Taylor, former Congressman

Western North Carolina celebrates today. The 109th "do-nothing" Congress is over and with it the Congressional career of Charles H. Taylor. Our 16-year nightmare of Taylor's scandals and failures has come to a close. We won't have Charles Taylor to kick around anymore, and it's only just and fitting that Scrutiny Hooligans pay our last respects to the man who inspired more political action than we'd ever undertaken before.

Goodbye Charles Taylor, and in the words of the immortal Lyle C. Rashorta, "without you none of this would have been possible... or necessary."

This is so, so sad

Good byes are so hard to do....

NOT! :)

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Hey, I saw that BlueNC screenshot!

Didn't I just hear that song on 109.5?

The end of an error.

Amen.

Wonder who's moving into his office?

The stench of corruption will be overwhelming.

New occupant = yet another Bush sycophant.

According to the unofficial 110th Congress phone directory (PDF), the new occupant of 339 Cannon is Rep. Pete "Baghdad is like Manhattan" King (R, NY-03), yet another BushCo rubber stamp who managed to hang onto his seat. He may actually like the smell...

Also in the Cannon building.

Shuler, Heath, 11th NC ................... 56401 512

If you want to find your new rep, here you go.

Taylor Skips Last Vote

Jeebus.

This man just won't quit being so god-damned transparent. What a fitting end, bailing on NC's workers again.

Winston Salem Journal: ""The U.S. House of Representatives passed a trade bill last night that many members of North Carolina's congressional delegation fear will hurt the state's already suffering textile industry."
[...]
"Reps. Walter Jones, R-3rd and Charles Taylor, R-11th, did not vote. All other members of the delegation voted against it."
