So they can settle their debts without any riff-raff bothering them:
The N.C. Republican House Caucus Leadership fund will be raising money at the Carolina Country Club next month. The Aug. 27 shindig is billed as a reception honoring the GOP House caucus. Chipping in $10,000 will get you 12 tickets to the VIP and general receptions, with less expensive options available down to $150 single tickets.
In all fairness, the Club did just decide to finally allow one (Duke Energy) African-American to join its previously lily-white ranks:
The Carolina Country Club, a favored gathering spot for Raleigh’s social elite since 1910, has made what appears to be its first acceptance of African-American members in its 103-year history.
The most recent edition of Columns, the club newsletter, that arrived in members’ mailboxes Tuesday announced that Hilda Pinnix-Ragland, vice president of corporate public affairs for Duke Energy, had been accepted for membership with husband Alvin Ragland.
The accomplishment was somewhat soured when she was told the only day she was allowed to actually play the game of golf was on "Ladies Golfing Day", which is always held on February 29th.
