Moffitt's theft of Asheville's water overruled

In a blatant power grab, Tim Moffitt tried to do his part for privatization of public resources by attempting to usurp Asheville's water supply.

However, as is becoming common these days, a court of law struck down Tim's power play as unconstitutional.

Asheville is claiming victory after a North Carolina judge's decision striking down the transfer of the city's water system to a regional body.

Asheville officials said Monday that Wake County Superior Court Judge Howard Manning Jr. ruled state lawmakers last year violated the state constitution and failed to compensate for the cost of building the water system.

This is just the latest in a string of court decisions declaring the extremist laws of the right-wing nut job loons of the NC GOP illegal. And there's more to come.

Not the end

Manning's ruling is expected to be appealed.

The "we must stop this wasteful spending!" party is burning money like...er...coal defending their indefensible laws. Money that should be going to teacher pay or social services is lining the pockets of lawyers who defend these wretched laws.

If Moffit wins re-election I

If Moffit wins re-election I would not be surprised to see a new bill to accomplish the same goal but through a different path. NCGA is working on another bill for the Charlotte airport even as we speak.

Cat out of the bag

You're absolutely right, Vicki. One of Moffitt's colleagues already said as much:

Another way to skin the cat

... another lawsuit.
