Moffitt trying to get BOE complaint dropped


Photo from Scrutiny Hooligans

And enough lies might get the job done:

The complaint stems from a Feb. 24 meeting between Moffitt and Turner at an Asheville restaurant. Moffitt has said he merely suggested that Turner would make a good candidate to head UNC-TV because of his experience as a producer at MTV and more recent work as a vice chancellor at UNC Asheville. A national search for a new UNC-TV director is expected to begin later this year. "Rep. Moffitt did not give or promise Brian Turner any political appointment or support for public office," according to Moffitt's response.

In a sworn statement included in the response, Buncombe County Commissioner David King, who attended the meeting between the two candidates, also says Moffitt didn't give or promise Turner "any political appointment, support for political office, or for any job in the government or with UNC-TV." King, a Republican, also says in his statement that he called Turner in early March to ask why he was making false claims against Moffitt, and Turner responded, "It is good for my campaign."

Riiight. In one breath, you call Turner a liar, and in the next breath, you claim he told you something outrageous, something that can't be verified or disproved. It's a liar's wonderland. Lesson learned: if you're a Democrat, don't meet with two Republicans without wearing a wire.

because Moffitt is just too, too adorable, in a slimeball kind of way.

This photo

of parody Tweeter Mullet Moffitt is pretty adorable, too.

Hahahaha!

I guess I could have written "LOL!", but that picture is worth more than just a LOL. :)

smart phones have recorders

You don't need to wear a wire. Just turn your cell phone recorder on and put it on the table.

Just put the cellphone or digital recorder in plain sight

For the sake of transparency, just put the cellphone and/or digital recorder in plain sight (for backup's sake, both).
As if you were, oh, a reporter.

Ah, but there was a NO cell phones rule

Or - more correctly - a no recording devices.
See http://wlos.com/images/Turner%20vs%20Moffitt.pdf for the sordid story.

The link is to a copy of the North Carolina Board of Elections complaint filed by candidate Brian Turner against state Rep. Tim Moffitt, hosted by WLOS.

I know of ...

... several models of inexpensive digital recorders that give quite good results when placed in a pocket.

All the more reason to record

the meeting :)

That's what I thought

I'm not sure what I would have done. Even if the recording had provided damning evidence for the BOE, there's no guarantee they would do anything about it. And Moffitt is just the type of weasel to file a lawsuit over breach of verbal contract, or having his privacy violated by being recorded involuntarily, or some other legal grounds.

*edited for decency's sake. If you missed it, I hope you learned your lesson about inattentiveness.

It speaks volumes

that Moffitt insisted on "no recording devices". He didn't want to be recorded.

That way it's just his (and King's) word against Turner's.
